Some people say that success can really make your life harder than it used to be. There is a theory by a certain Dr Laurence Peter called the Peter Principles which states that every employee, if he does exceptionally well in his job, will soon find himself promoted to a position for which he is not really suited. In your previous position you did well because you were able to easily complete your tasks since you have the capability to do the job. In your new position, there is a whole new set of responsibilities which are more difficult than your previous ones. Still, you may do well in this new position and you will continue to impress your boss and your name is nominated for promotion once again.
There will come a point, however, where the next position you will occupy is already something beyond your capabilities. Your level of competence, you will soon find out, was only up to the last position that you held. We see here that through regular promotions, since there are no demotions in corporations, an employee can lose his effectiveness in his new role as compared to his old position. Although this may be true, the corporation still continue to do well since there are still other employees who are still doing well in their positions and have not yet reached their level of incompetence. There is no such success problem for a person running his own business since there is no hierarchy to speak of. If you are not able to do things well, you will expect your business to suffer. Successful business owners should try their hand in venturing in international business.
It is exciting to meet with business people from other parts of the world. But, you will need to give them a good impression and make them recognize your abilities. Here are some thing you need to organize to achieve that.
Booking a jet charter company rather than making them ride a commercial flight is the first step towards making a good first impression. It is expensive yet it is one good way of impressing them so that it will end up with a good business deal. And then when the deal is closed you will realize that it was really cheap. When choosing a hotel, make sure that your choice can enhance your relationship with them instead of hinder it. Give them something that they would do for themselves if they were the ones to do it in a place familiar to them.
You need to research the kind of business guests you will be having. There are those who would rather be active and some would like more of a quiet relaxing place.
