Lawrence Edward Page was born on March 26, 1973 to change our lives forever, although he didn’t quite know it at the time.

Surrounded by computers, gadgets, technology and magazines, Page learned to talked about the same time he was attracted to technology; largely due to his parents, both computer science and Artificial Intelligence programming professors at the University of Michigan, who promoted his creativity and innovation.

Today little remains of the Young man who at only 12 broke into when he finished Reading the biography his childhood idol: physicist and inventor Nikola Tesla; except for one thing: his passion for business. And he admits that:

10 inspirational lessons from Larry Page, Google CEO, that will change the course of your business

1.‘You don’t need a company with 100 people to develop this idea’.

Do you know what Google, Apple, Disney and Amazon have in common? All of them we born in a garage empty of resources but full of dreams, and this is exactly what you need to have a functioning business: bet on it, believe in your idea and advance with determination to accomplish your goals even though you may not have the necessary resources at the moment.

Imagine if Larry Page, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney or Jeff Bezos had ceased in developing their ideas only due to not having a large number of people to back them. Fortunately for us— and for their pockets—, they didn’t do this.

Extra tip: Don’t let excuses distract you from your goals; it seems obvious but you’d be surprised about how many things can happen when you believe in what you are and what you do.

2.‘Our goal is basically to take the largest amount of information and make it accessible and useful’.

(And it seems like it hasn’t steered them wrong, right?)

One of the secrets to the Google CEO’s success is found in this phrase: he knew where he wanted to go and once you know where you’re going it’s much easier to get there.

Extra tip: Define your company’s purpose in a single sentence to make sure that you really know what you want to do; if you can’t do this it means that your goal isn’t clear enough.

  1. ‘When we began the searches, they all told us: boys, it’s going to fail, there are already 5 search engines. We replied: we’re a search engine company, but we’re doing something different.

Here lies the key: for all the competition you have in your market niche try to look for what makes you different from others and make it your differentiating value.

Don’t forget that competition is healthy and necessary, because without it you won’t be able to improve nor advance; study them and don’t lose sight of them but move fast so you’ll always be one step ahead.

Extra tip: Constantly look to differentiate yourself from your competition by offering something that they don’t have and creating your own brand image.

4.‘Treat people with respect and they’ll return the favor to your company’.

People are the most important asset for your Company, and this is something that you should never forget. If you treat your employees with as much respect as your clients and potential clients, you’ll see how they’ll act the same with your company.

Extra tip: On one hand, reward your employees’ performance when necessary, being as this is shown to increase productivity and helps squeeze out talent. On the other hand, make your business strive for your audience to be happy and it’ll be much easier for these users to become clients.

  1. ‘If you are changing the world, you’re working on important things’.

In order for your business to function well you have to ensure to resolve problems and provide needs.  That’s why, as said by Google CEO, Larry Page, if you help people you’re doing right.

Extra tip: Search for how your business can help people instead of thinking about the money you can earn. If you do that, the latter will just come.

  1. ‘It’s important for a company to be a family: that people feel as if they’re part of the company and the company is like a family to them’.

Work for every employee to feel valued, try to learn their needs and challenges, be interested in them and make every member of your team feel like they’re part of your company. Because if everyone just worked for themselves you’ll be able to reach great heights, but it’s only by working in teams where everyone is happy that they’ll be able to achieve extraordinary things.

Extra tip: Try to reserve some time during the work day aimed at encouraging teamwork and creating cohesion among the members of your team, being as these meetings known to strengthen ties and build teamwork. For example, organize a team outing to enjoy activities outside or promote activities within the company that encourage interacting with other team members.

  1. ‘It’s not necessary to go to school to launch a business. I read a whole shelf of business books and that was basically all I needed’.

You would be surprised with the number of people who’ve thrown their dreams of launching their own business aside just for not having gone to college or having a specific degree.

The big business men and women all have something in common: whether they have a degree or not, they’ve never cast aside learning and transforming themselves even if it’s something as simple as reading.

If you want to have your own business, then just concern yourself with learning. In fact, Larry Page once said: “live, learn, love… the important things in life”.

Extra tip: Dedicate a few minutes a day to reading books or even articles that will help you with your business: from how to have a successful business to how to improve the process, how to find the best content for your audience or how to create your own social media strategy . In our blog a few you can read up on this.

  1. ‘I know it seems like the world is falling apart but in all actuality it’s a great point in your life to get a little crazy. Follow your curiosity and be ambitious with it. Don’t abandon your dreams. The world needs you!’.

This can be summed up in another on of the Google CEO’s famous phrases: “when a dream appears, take it!”.

There’s nothing that produces more satisfaction than accomplishing goals and fulfilling your dreams, so believe in your dreams because they just might be able to feed you for the rest of your life.

Extra tip: The most successful businesses are built on dreams and ideas, so again: allow yourself to bet strongly on what you believe.

  1. ‘We won’t be able to survive if people don’t trust us’.

In order to get people —in this case your audience— to believe in you, you have to earn it.

Focus on your audience’s needs, have a presence on the social networks where your target public is and carry out various actions focused on gaining the confidence of your potential clients, like for example, offering them quality content or by having great customer service.

Extra tip: Why don’t you create some type of  promotion or contest on social networks that helps you attract traffic and retain your clients? This is a great way of putting yourself out there, interacting with your consumers and generating confidence. Furthermore, there are tools especially designed to facilitate the whole process, like SocialTools.

  1. ‘What’s the sentence that sums up how to change the world? Always work on something uncomfortably exciting!’

Comfortability is the worst friend for a successful business to have, so steer clear from it and try to put some effort into every task you do and every objective you pursue. If you’re able to make each day of work exciting and thrilling, then they’ll be no one to hold you back.

Extra tip: Don’t get too comfortable and when you accomplish a goal celebrate! but move quickly to the next.  The issue is going to climb Little by Little, thus your business will grow and evolve.
