Benjamin Franklin is sometimes thought of as the father of American business, and his rules for management continue to be worth following. Franklin’s ideas were about self-improvement and management in terms of modern entrepreneurship.
Among the ways you can use Franklin’s advice today are to acknowledge that your skills are becoming obsolete and that you must overcome such obsolescence through constant self-education. You should consider reading something educational every day and instead of watching TV at night, try playing a strategy game with your children or friends.
Create a discussion group and begin getting information to your employees. Train your employees and require everyone in your company to obtain at least 40 hours of training per year.
