Donald Trump Wealth Principles For Life

If you wish to be like someone else, it is best to emulate what they do. If you watch Donald Trump in action on his show Celebrity Apprentice, there are a lot of things to be learned about running a business. When you have worked your entire life at being a leader, it makes sense that you will bring your family into your business with you. In a recent interview with CNBC, Donald Trump discussed the principles that he follows for success. Below are the takeaway principles.

1. It is all about winning.
A lot of business leaders try to disguise what their organization is about by creating feel-good goals for appearances sake. Trump isn’t like that, he is the direct type. When asked what the best part of working on Celebrity Apprentice has been, he quickly pointed to the ratings that the show has gotten. There have been several copy-cat shows that tried to mimic his show, but they have all failed miserably. His show is winning.

2. Don’t be afraid to do it your way.
Many times in business you will come up against an issue and often be directed to follow a route that others have followed. Donald isn’t the type to follow the crowd, he is more inclined to do it his own way and he instructs his son to do the same. Don’t be afraid to follow your gut instincts when making decisions.

3. Find your secret competitive advantage.
There is one secret competitive advantage the Trump organization has over its competition, when a decisions needs to be made after hours, Trump’s son simply calls him regardless of the time and gets an answer as to how to move forward. For other businesses, issues are addressed during business hours and require going up the chain of command before any decision can be made. Cut out the red tape, make yourself available.

4. Understand the major changes in work.
With the introduction of newer technologies there has been a shift in the way people work. Now people can work from anywhere regardless of the time, day or night. There are also ways for them to be with family and have a life while still working the required hours. Work and family life have sort of blended together for a lot of people. You can see this in a positive light because it allows people to spend time with family. These changes have affected both men and women in the workplace and at home.

5. Remember to balance your busy life.
Although the Trump family may be slightly more ambitious that the average family, they take the time to prioritize their lives outside of work. A lot of people could relate to not being able to go to their children’s sporting events or ballet recitals in the past, but now people make time for those things. If you miss your children’s significant moments during childhood you have failed. You need to balance work and real life, you just need to figure out how to do it.

For Donald Trump and his family life is not split between work and home, it is all intertwined. For anyone who wants to succeed at business, you need to learn how to do the same. If your spouse is being supportive of your goals they will help you figure out a way to intertwine the two.
