UNI­VER­SAL PRIN­CI­PLES AND LEARN­ING FROM AFAR

GQ (Australia) - - GQ INC. - theen­tourage.com.au

As the founder of en­tre­pre­neur­ial ed­u­ca­tion out­fit The En­tourage, BRW ‘Young Rich’ list player Jack Delosa un­der­stands what can be achieved by im­part­ing knowl­edge. “The most re­ward­ing part of busi­ness for me is en­abling growth in hu­man be­ings – it’s more re­ward­ing than the progress, awards or fi­nan­cial gains.” In re­gard to pro­fes­sional growth, the 29-year-old dis­cusses the ‘uni­ver­sal prin­ci­ples’ that can eas­ily be adopted by en­gag­ing with those who’ve gone be­fore. And he’s adamant that doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean a di­rect men­tor­ship. “Mentorships can take on sev­eral forms – ev­ery­thing from sit­ting down and en­gag­ing with some­one who has some been-there-done-that ex­pe­ri­ences… and span out to study­ing busi­nesses, icons or in­di­vid­ual move­ments that have come be­fore.” It’s here he points to the ac­ces­si­bil­ity of books, the in­ter­net and pod­casts. “This kind of in­for­ma­tion and knowl­edge is ab­so­lutely avail­able to every­body at any time – you can be sit­ting at home on a Sun­day af­ter­noon and watch a 60-minute in­ter­view with one of the most im­pres­sive en­trepreneurs on the planet, say [Tesla’s] Elon Musk, and un­der­stand what it takes to build a suc­cess­ful busi­ness. “It means you’re able to pick up some re­ally good-qual­ity, prac­ti­cal prin­ci­ples and di­rec­tion that can set you up for suc­cess.”
