3 Iconic Leadership Lessons from Prince

I just woke up to the news that pop legend Prince had passed away. Whenever a famous artist passes away I try to think about what their life meant, did they leave a legacy behind and if so what was it.

So here are three leadership lessons from Prince that I think we can all take away to help make us better Entrepreneurs who want to change the world.

Stand out from the Crowd

During the 80’s Prince became the colour purple. These days we would refer to it as “branding” but that would be a gross limitation of what he did. He truly embraced the colour as part of his identity, especially after his album,song and movie - Purple Rain. In tribute to his passing, the I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis will remain purple tonight.

Your survival in business depends on your ability to stand out from the crowd and offer something truly unique to your customers - whether that’s products and services or even just an amazing customer experience. Figure out a way to stand out from the crowd. Prince nailed the experience time and time again because he was focused on chasing something much deeper than sales.

Don’t Play the Game, Own It

In 1993 until 2000, Prince changed his name to the symbol for men and women as a creative way to escape the legal limitations of his contract with Warner Bros. They wanted him to limit the release of his albums and as an artist constantly creating music and wanting to release it to his fans, there was a major conflict.  As the symbol is unpronounceable, during this time he was known as “The Artist formerly known as Prince”. He didn’t care what Warner Bros thought or what the media said about him because he believed in what he was doing and he stuck to his guns.

Another time comedian Dave Chappelle started doing impersonations of Prince. Rather than get upset, Prince took Dave’s photo of him dressed as Prince and used it for his new album cover. Chappelle described it to Jimmy Fallon as a “Prince judo move right there. You make fun of Prince in a sketch and he’ll just use you in an album cover. What am I going to do, sue him for using a picture of me dressed up as him? It’s impossible! That’s check mate right there!”

Sometimes in life and in business we find ourselves in situations that cause us to be angry and frustrated. If we channel these feelings into thinking about creative solutions to overcome these issues then we don’t just play the game, we own it! Prince definitely owned the game for many decades.

Make Sure Your Work Outlives Your Lifetime

Just yesterday I saw this beautiful cover of Prince’s “Kiss” performed by two girls and a random stranger on a subway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T-wzCX1RFU

It was friggin cool and I couldn’t wait to get stuck into it this weekend when I practice guitar.

Then today I wake up to the news that Prince passed away. The only consolation is that his work will live on much longer than his lifetime and that is something truly beautiful.

As business people we run a business and make a sale because that’s what we do, but as Entrepreneurs we have so much more to offer the world through the way we think, feel and behave. Go beyond your business and make sure your work outlives your lifetime.

Rest in Peace Prince, you truly left before your time and the world shall miss sharing in your journey to greatness.

Dream, Build, Inspire, Lead!

AJ~

+World Tutor Hub Really interesting point - disposable music. That's just record companies looking for quick dollars for a short term game. Great artists play the long game but they own it. To them it's about chasing an individual truth. Check out John Mayer's Berkeley master class on YouTube. He talks about the compromise of having to create "pop" songs to please the record companies and make sales but also deeper tracks that would never get airplay but sing to the fans' soul. It's never about getting overly attached to your work - you have to be, but you recognise that it's your personal journey not anyone else's and if people like what you do then that's a bonus.

Just wanted to give you this reminder
to keep your vision in front of you,
my friends! Your success is around
the corner ... Be vigilant & consistent!
 
Apparently today is a day for VISION!
Not only did I retake a personality test
that told me I had no vision (HAHA!!!)
but my business partner Erin shared
this image today.

Now, I don't believe in coincidences.
I believe everything happens for a reason.

I don't know why I'm being shown
reminders to keep my vision firmly
in front of me ...

But deep down I know it's because
something BIG is happening ...

And it's because I DO have vision.

I envision that what I am doing NOW
will allow me to EMPOWER others to
live the lifestyle of their DREAMS ...

In my future?

Every year I see 10 new people
becoming millionaires.

Every year I see 100 new people
becoming #FinanciallyFree.

Every year I see 1,000 new people
becoming #DebtFree.

Man - I am so PUMPED to be there!

You WILL be there with me,
claiming your #BornToWin birthright...

... won't you?
