Ronson J. Shamoun, founder of RJS Law, gave an inspiring talk to the YCP San Diego crowd on Tuesday, July 10! The lawyer, serial entrepreneur, and philanthropist talked about the importance of living a life of giving, and how to grow in your own career. Shamoun’s takeaways are below:
-You have to start with giving. If you live a life of giving and helping others, God will give back to you tenfold! Even if you don’t have money, you can still give your time. Always help someone.
-Build ahard and strong work ethic. It will take sacrifice, but it will pay back dividends.
-Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Show a willingness to learn—and find multiple mentors who are not afraid to teach you!
-Everything comes back to attitude—don’t fight with your coworkers. Go to your company events and get involved! Be the first one in and the last to leave. The more you do now while laying the foundation, the easier your life will become.
-Network as much as you can. This is how you find new business, make new connections, and grow your business and yourself.
-Trust in God—and everything will turn out alright.
