One such leader is Microsoft founder Bill Gates; there are many lessons to be learned from such an iconic, innovative business leader. So, what is it that he does well and what can be learned: 

Pursuing what you love:  

From an early age, Bill Gates was mesmerized by computers and spent the vast majority of his time learning how to program, although not the perfect model he was passionate, and that passion ultimately lead to the creation of one of the most important technology companies to date. Having that same passion within the sales and marketing industry will ultimately lead to great things, having the determination, willingness to learn and true grit will put individuals in good stead to be the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.  

Working tirelessly:  

Success doesn’t happen overnight, it is the culmination of tireless hard work and dedication, and Gates knew that all too well. The same concept is directly relatable, the sales and marketing industry is notoriously difficult and takes time for individuals to master the skills. Finding the right formula   

Looking forward:   

No matter what happens, a legendary leader continues to look forward, no matter what barriers might be put up or faced along the way. While most would assume Gates, phenomenal success was issue free, you’d be wrong. It’s important to constantly look to the future particularly within the industry, never give up, continuously look for ways to innovate and relish failure don’t fear it, there is no better learning experience.
