3 Top Tips For The Learning Entrepreneur

PetroCONNECT is passionate about supporting and developing entrepreneurs. Here is a collection of our 3 top tips to help you make it as an entrepreneur.

Tip No. 1: Open up additional revenue streams

South Africans are constantly on the go and need fast and efficient services to keep up with their busy lifestyles. This is where petrol stations fulfil an important public service. By joining forces with other service providers they increase their basket size, which is very necessary because fuel margins are fixed.

Tip No. 2: Have a good mentor

Put your faith in a trusted mentor It can be a family member, former boss or colleague or even a trusted online source or blog. A mentor is an invaluable sounding board – someone who’s been where you are; someone with whom you can have regular, non-judgmental check-ins.

Tip No. 3: Look after number one.

Entrepreneurship is a lifestyle – the days of 9-to-5 are over. That’s not to say that you must work yourself into the ground. Exercise regularly, eat healthily and find the time to relax or you’ll end up being less productive.
