“Think Big and Kick Ass! in Business and Life” by Donald Trump and Bill Zanker

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Books, Habits, Personal Finance

Think big and kick ass, Donald Trump

This is one of the latest books of Donald Trump that he wrote together with Bill Zanker from the Learning Annex. They draw from their experiences in life to provide practical advice on how to think big in your life and achieve what you want. Donald gives many examples from real estate and his experience with dealing with famous people. Bill’s prospective is different. He draws his examples from the struggles that he had in starting the Learning Annex and transforming it into a successful company.

They recommend that is very important to find your passion and follow it. Do not do something for money, but because you are passionate about it. Then the money will follow. You need to go after your passion with 150% focus and to focus on the solutions to the problems that you will encounter and do not be dishearten by the problems.[…]

Be successful like Donald Trump, part 5

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, Property Investing

Donald Trump

I finished watching the fifth series of “The Apprentice” recently and it is time to write the usual summary about Donald’s advice to be successful. The people who are regular readers of this blog should know by know the main themes from the previous series. Series five moves on similar lines. The focus of Donald Trump should be clear by now.

Donald’s advice follows again the main lines of the previous four series. I think that he has made his point in the previous episodes and now he just repeats it over and over again. That is good in a way, because you can understand which points he stresses a lot and which ones are not so vital. And as the ancient Greeks used to say “Repetition is the mother of learning”.

His advice on series five is the following:[…]

Be successful like Donald Trump, part 4

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, Property Investing

Donald Trump

The fourth season of “The Apprentice” was one of the best. The candidates were very strong and you are glued to your couch till the last minute. The final 2 are very both great and there is a little twist at the end of the series.

Donald here repeats his valuable advice through the series again. The topics are similar as the previous ones and you start to understand how he thinks. He focuses again on the importance of money, always thinking big and having a winning team around you. You can see that this is how Donald has built his empire. He combined these 3 elements (and a few more) and he built his empire. The tasks that the teams perform follow similar concepts as the previous series. They range from marketing, to selling, to creating ideas and of course teamwork and leading people.

Here is the advice given from Donald Trump in the […]

Be successful like Donald Trump, part 3

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, Property Investing

Donald Trump

After watching Series 1 & 2 I was really looking forward to watch the third one. I find the advice that Donald gives valuable and I think it can help people become winners.

The third series of “The Apprentice” is full with more advice on the same topics. By now you will start to see certain topics repeating themselves. Donald is big on thinking big and leading with authority. This is where Donald places his focus and what has helped him to build his empire.

It is surprising that Donald refers to the same topics again and again. The candidates in the series keep doing the same mistakes. Please make sure that you do not repeat your mistakes. Learn from them and improve.

Here is the advice from Donald Trump give in the third series:[…]

Be successful like Donald Trump, part 2

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, Property Investing

Donald Trump

Last week I covered the advice that was given by Donald Trump in the first part of the series “The Apprentice”. This advice is covering practical ways that can help people become more successful in business and become better leaders. I think that these are steps that Donald has followed and he lives by. These steps have helped him to build his huge empire and become a billionaire.

The second series continues in a similar style. A new group of people face business challenges every week and hope to work for Donald. The tasks are similar to the first series, but the pressure is more and the deadlines are more aggressive. Donald continues to evaluate the performance of the teams each week and give feedback and advice.

Here are his gems of wisdom from the second series:[…]

Be successful like Donald Trump, part 1

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, Property Investing

Donald Trump

I came across the other day a series called “The Apprentice”. I am not a big fun of reality TV, but a friend recommended that I should watch this, because it is different and full of practical advice on how to succeed and run a business. As you know by now, I am very interested in practical advice and I thought of giving it a go and see what Donald Trump has to share.

I was pleasantly surprised by “The Apprentice”. It is all about business and how to be successful. Each week Donald gives the candidates a business task to complete and then at the end he judges them on how they did and gives his advice on what they did wrong. The tasks range from creating products to marketing to creating and running a business. The advice that Donald gives is great.

“Why We Want You to Be Rich” by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Books, Habits, Personal Finance

Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump

This is a very interesting book that is written by two great authors. The book is packed with good material about the things you need to focus to get rich. It spends some time in the beginning to tell you why you need to get rich and why depending on a job and the government to look after you is not a wise decision.

I found that Robert is repeating his mantras here, a lot. If you have read some of his other books I do not think you will read anything new here. Maybe some bits here and there, but nothing amazing. Donald is a bit more original than his usual books. His parts in the book are smaller that Robert’s, but I found they contain much more practical steps on how to think big and negotiate. […]
