Entrepreneurship: Business Lesson #7
As well as servicing our clients, we are also entrepreneurs and business managers. If you haven’t read Michael E. Gerber’s E-Myth yet, I high recommend it; it will help you embrace entrepreneurship.
As an entrepreneur, how would you rate your abilities for the following on the scale of: Not So-Hot, So-So, Pretty Good.
- Turn any situation into an opportunity.
- Construct a vision for the future.
- Develop strategies for achievements.
- Create new methods, services, products.
- Develop and implement plans for achieving strategies.
- Track effectiveness and identify areas for improvement and growth.
- Manage time, energy, and money effectively and efficiently.
- Achieve goals and objectives.
- Respond to situations pro-actively rather than reactively.
- Commit to excellent service and client satisfaction.
- Experience enthusiasm and passion for work.
- Build strategic alliances and a network of positive business relationships.
- Communicates with effective verbal skills
- Communicates with effective written skills
- Demonstrate technical mastery.
- Feel highly motivated to work
- Commit to personal growth and development.
When you are ‘called’ to entrepreneurship, rather than react to competitive, economic, and social environments, you pro-actively take steps to create the business and life you desire.
