Amazing Entrepreneurial Lessons From Leonardo Da Vinci

Networking – It Matters!

“Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.”

Leonardo Da Vinci was a bastard child of a peasant girl. He was born ‘out-of-wedlock’ and was denied the privilege of even carrying a surname. He had no formal education and it was extremely difficult for an illegitimate child to lead a life. Eventually, he understood the importance of mixing with the right crowd. In his twenties, he outshone his master to gain quick recognition and was accepted into the highly esteemed Painters’ Guild of Florence.

Though being an illegitimate child, Da Vinci shot to fame only with his great networking skills. If it was not networking Da Vinci would have never seen lime light or this article wouldn’t even exist. Hence it is important for an entrepreneur to realize the importance of quick networking.
