4 Important Lessons Every Boomer Entrepreneur Can Learn From Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs has been hailed as an American genius who has changed our world forever. He’s managed to give people things they didn’t even know they wanted: iPhones, iPods, iPads, and a whole lot more.
It’s easy to be in total awe of him, and his brilliant and creative mind. However, if take a step back and look at him as a teacher for your home-based business, what are some of the most important lessons a boomer entrepreneur, not ready for retirement, can learn from his genius?

Here are four important ones that will help your home business take a quantum leap to success:

1.  Aim for perfection

The meaning of “perfection” according to the dictionary is an “unsurpassable degree of accuracy or excellence.” The way Steve Jobs does this is through constantly improving on what he creates and develops. He never sits back on his laurels satisfied, rather he is always on the lookout for ways to make his products better.

What can you do in your home business to improve what you are currently doing?

2.  Draw on the experts

The world is filled with experts in every possible field. Some are more visible than others. One of the main characteristics of a true expert is that they are, more often than not, willing to share their wisdom and expertise.

Steve Jobs constantly turns to experts to draw on their wisdom to help him improve.
Your task as a boomer entrepreneur is to first understand where you need help and advice, and then seek out the best experts to help you. Do your homework as there are many false prophets out there in the marketplace.

Where do you need help, and who would be the best experts to help you?

3. Be a life-long learner

Steve Jobs never stops studying. He learns from whomever he can, no matter what the industry. He takes ideas from one industry and adapts them to his products.
As a boomer entrepreneur you need to adopt the mindset of being a life-long learner. The world is changing so rapidly it’s hard to keep up, which is even more reason why you need to never stop studying. Don’t try to know everything about everything, that’s an impossible task.  Rather, find an area where you can become an expert, and constantly think about how you take different ideas and adapt them to your home-based business.

4. Keep it simple

One of Steve Jobs’ hallmarks is the simplicity of his products. He wants his creations to be easy and simple to use so that anyone, tech-savvy or not, can use them. The simpler products the better.
We often expend far too much energy complicating what we do, when simple could be the main ingredient in our recipe to success.

What can you do to simplify what you’re currently doing?

Although we can learn so much more from Steve Jobs, if you just aim for perfection, continually learn from the experts, and keep whatever you do simple, you’ll be well on the way to making your home business a success.
