THE BRAIN: Innovation and Ingenuity
- Young bosses often have ideas and create concepts that are either outside of the box or improve on an already existing concept. Many also capitalize on their youth by tapping into the pulse of their peers, studying trends and market needs, keeping up with the fast pace of today’s technologically advanced world, and holding a foundation of basic knowledge in a chosen field.
- To nurture this: Don’t be caught dead without the most efficient tech tools. Know and engage your market in order to tighten up an aptitude of spotting the next big thing. Stay abreast of the latest trends and what’s going on in the everyday world. Keep technical skills up to par with the proper training or education, whether it’s via seminars/courses/shadowing/hands-on. Collaborate with other thought leaders to gain different perspectives. Take it from Jamail Larkins, 26, CEO of Larkins Enterprises and Ascension Aircraft: “Every single time you get the chance to meet someone, see if thereâ€™s anything you can pick up and learn and apply to your life or your business.”
