Success comes from the mastery of a core set of skills that can be applied to any position, field or company.
1. Sales skills. Sales is the basis of all business success.
2. The ability to code. You don’t need to know how to build the next Facebook, but a basic understanding of how the Web works and how software and apps are built can be a game-changing advantage.
3. The ability to drive results. Through it all, you should know what your goals are and how you are going to achieve them. This skill requires you to synthesize many of your other skills and layer on an intense passion and focus.
4. Effective Time-Management Skills
You must be able to manage your time well.
Effective time-management skills don't just happen. They have to be learned. Once you do, they will benefit you throughout your life.
It takes time to develop good habits, but you'll gain satisfaction from being well-organized and accomplishing your tasks.
