Top Tips for SUCCESS

Before cracking on with some work this afternoon, I read through the latest 'Fabulous' magazine that comes with 'The Sun' on Saturdays.  In the problem pages towards the back I found some very useful careers and money tips from self-made millionaire Michelle Mone that I have found very inspiring and would like to share with you all.

1. Believer in yourself. If you're looking to get ahead, you need ambition, commitment, guts and self-belief.
2. Be decisive. Make a decision and stick to it, whether it's going for a promotion, starting up your own business or changing career directions.
3. Identify your skills. If you're after a promotion, make a list of your recent achievements, relevant qualities, and areas in which you want to develop, then go through your plan with your boss.
4. Do your research. If you want to start up your own, thoroughly research your market and competitors and ensure you can improve on what is already out there.
5. Monitor your internet profiles. Potential employers may find you on Facebook, so think about what they'll see.
6. Get out of the rut. Consider what other skills you can offer. Set up a meeting with a recruiter, who may be able to give new options.
7. Never give up. If at first you don't succeed try, try again. And when you're able to, give something back by sharing your experiences with others.
8. Do the knowledge. Stay on top of your industry, even it you're currently out of work. Read trade magazines, check out industry blogs and keep yourself in the loop. It may lead to new job options.
9. Find a mentor. Speak to someone you respect in your industry - it will give an objective point of view.
10. Don't become complacent. I set out to make my business, Ultimo, a success, and 14 years later I'm still striving to make it bigger and better.
