With many moving parts in starting and running a business, you must know what you do.

It's also important that you learn from others' mistakes, so you avoid the cost of committing the same blunders over again.

What's best is taking the necessary steps to manage one's business from a financial and entrepreneurs perspective.

There's no challenge that an entrepreneur faces that our guest for today, Henry Daas, does not know about. That's why in today's episode, he shares with us his insights, wisdom, and knowledge of taking charge of one's business.

Being a real estate investor, just like any business, is tough. As a serial entrepreneur with significant business experience, Henry shares essential lessons learned from decades of building businesses in different industries.

Having committed mistakes in the first few attempts at the start of his business career, he came up with these five aspects where most entrepreneurs find struggle in. It comes in handy as it makes you aware of what to avoid and what to work on.

Newbies and seasoned entrepreneurs alike can learn a ton as he touches on financial literacy.

With vast experience and expertise garnered over the years, he finally sat down and came up with a three-legged stool concept that is of immense help in how he conducts business matters, something that he also teaches his own clients.

He talks about the seven silos a business should have, of which he singled out and went in-depth on a particular one as it is one crucial aspect of business you shouldn't be missing out on.

Key Takeaways:

"Confusing passion with commitment -- sometimes people are insanely passionate. But then, when it comes down to the drudgery, they lack the commitment necessary to follow through, just like the entrepreneur who lacks the commitment to cut the umbilical cord from their employer and go alone. That's tough." - Henry Daas

"The fact that they reached out to me is an indication that it's not working for them, that there's some kind of a problem here and you can't, it's hard to be a slave to multiple masters. It's hard enough to be a slave to one master." - Henry Daas

"The ones you're really good at, you should do all of those, if you can, if you have the bandwidth to do it. And the ones that you're not so good at, you should find somebody who's really good at it, and pay them to do that for you." - Henry Daas

"Just because you don't pay yourself doesn't mean that your time is valuable. It has value. And I guarantee you, as an entrepreneur, it's higher than the value it is for somebody that you hired." - Henry Daas

"If you can't find me a bunch of people out there who either tried and failed, and tell me why they did and why you're not going to, then I have to believe that there's no business there." - Henry Daas

"I'd rather be right than happy. I know so many people who are like that. They will fight tooth and nail and destroy friendships just to prove themselves right. It's like, let it go. Is it really that important for you to be right?" - Henry Daas
