Spirit Of An Entrepreneur
Grabbing opportunities with open arms for an entrepreneur to start is own small business is often easier to talk about than to actually do. Most entrepreneur find themselves dreaming about being rich but never actually doing anything about it. As with some entrepreneurs combination of procrastination and 'what if' syndrome can cripple your creative spirit and might mean your idea will never become a reality.
Socrates said "Action equals knowledge'. He was one of the greatest philosophers of our time. What he meant was that it is through action that we achieve results.
For example,as an entrepreneur you could think about learning marketing or sales for your small business, imagining the sales staff you will take on and the people you will employ and communicate with. You can dream forever but accomplish nothing unless you actually take the first step to do something.
Much like the martial arts approach – the idea is to take action immediately and avoid over analyzing the situation. Any business coach will tell you that.
Do you want to start your own small business but are afraid of what kinds of things can go wrong? What if your initial investment doesn't pay off? There are millions of things that could go wrong but likewise there are many things that can go right! Fear can be paralyzing. When thinking about starting a business particularly if you keep waiting for the right time. There will never be a perfect time. It's now or never when it comes to starting your own business. Seek advice from an expert executive coach.
Questions A Business / Executive Coach Might Ask You To Consider.
– Do you have a clear idea of what kind of small business you want to start? A clear plan will help keep your worries at bay.
– Do you have access to the resources you will need? This includes the necessary start up cash as well as anything else you will need for your small business.
– Do you have access to clients for your new small business or do you know enough about marketing basics to ensure you will have enough interest in what you are offering?
Just like any small business coach will tell you – taking action is the most important part. Make an itemized list of what you feel needs to be done in order for you to start your small business you always dreamed of.
As a entrepreneur Prioritizing your list will help too. Don't wait for all your ducks to be in a proverbial row before you begin but make sure you have all the basics covered. Don't wait for that 'perfect someday'. Make an imperfect start.
Don't over think everything for your small business. Sometimes the best approach is to just jump into the deep end. As an entrepreneur you will make mistakes but you must be willing to learn from them.
Don't wait to start discovering your own entrepreneurial spirit. Take action today! You could be the next entrepreneur of the year.
