For the past several weeks I’ve wanted to have conversations with every member in my entrepreneurial community Mentee. The goal is to get real-world feedback from each individual on improving the community moving forward.

Initially, it would be great to connect with people 1:1, Whether via phone call, Zoom video call, or in-person for a coffee chat. I knew I could gain valuable insights into my community and how I could make it even better in the future. 

But the funny thing is it’s already given me so much more than I had ever hoped. I had 16 conversations in 7 days and couldn’t believe the value bombs I received. Not only did most people have an entirely different perspective, but it also made them feel important and valued from their side. A win-win for both of us.

While I’m not done with these conversations, I thought it would be a great time to relay what I’ve learned from this experience. And what you can implement into your own business to learn critical information and gain untapped feedback from those who are most important - your customers.

In the fast-paced business realm, where decisions are often made in the blink of an eye, the transformative potential of meaningful conversations can be easily underestimated. My recent experience of engaging in 17 conversations over 7 days shattered any preconceived notions, fundamentally altering my business perspective. These discussions provided new insights and laid the foundation for a more inclusive, innovative, and communicative approach to business.

Diverse Perspectives

The first eye-opener was the realization of the richness that diverse perspectives bring to the decision-making table. 

Engaging with individuals from various backgrounds and industries opened my eyes to many approaches and ideas beyond my immediate business sphere. 

This encounter emphasized the importance of diversity in thought, paving the way for a more inclusive and holistic decision-making process.

I was shocked at how different each person's perspective was. Different ideas, insights, and takeaways from each person who I talked to.

This allowed me to improve the community immediately and immediately make changes that benefit everyone inside it. 

Innovative Solutions

Subsequent conversations unveiled the power of collaboration in generating innovative solutions. 

The exchange of ideas, opinions, and experiences fostered a creative environment where unconventional and forward-thinking strategies emerged. 

The lesson here was clear: innovation thrives in an atmosphere where ideas are freely shared and collaborative thinking is encouraged.

Working and talking with multiple people in one week allowed me to collaborate with others in a very dynamic and creative way.

Effective Communication

The final revelation centred on the pivotal role of effective communication in business success. 

Understanding the nuanced needs and concerns of others facilitated smoother collaboration, highlighting the significance of attentive listening and fostering improved problem-solving. 

This underscored that communication is not just a means of conveying information but the backbone of successful teamwork and mutually beneficial relationships.

Communication is the gateway for your business and every relationship in your life. 

Giving people space to talk and be heard was great. Not only did I learn and listen from them, but they also felt great because of how important they felt. 


My business perspective underwent a profound transformation in just one week and through 17 conversations. 

These experiences served as a powerful reminder of the transformative power of dialogue. 

Embracing diverse perspectives, fostering innovation, and prioritizing effective communication emerged as the pillars of a more enlightened and successful business approach. 

As we navigate the complexities of the modern business landscape, these lessons will undoubtedly serve as a compass, guiding us toward a more resilient, adaptable, and prosperous future.
