The definition of success can vary from person to person. But I believe there are some commonalities when we review.
And, I often have conversations with other entrepreneurs. This subject arises from time to time.
What is a successful entrepreneur and how to be one
As I said, success is looked at in various ways by humans, but with entrepreneurs, there are many agreements that success consists of
- Being financially secure
- Having a solid tribe
- The ability to take off and the business will run
- Happy spouse and children
- And solving problems for the human race
I want to help you achieve all of these and more. Here are 5 tips to be a successful entrepreneur.
How To Be A Successful Entrepreneur Tip #1: Knowing Your Strengths And Weaknesses
I have yet to meet an entrepreneur who is successful and does everything in keeping the business running.
You must take a personal inventory… Write down all your strengths and all your weaknesses. Now in the weak areas, you need to recruit tribe members who are strong in that area.
Stay within your strength areas and let others handle your weak areas.
How To Be A Successful Entrepreneur Tip #2: Do What You Love And Love What You Do
If you are just in it for the money, you will probably have a difficult time with the business.
You must have passion and a love for what you are doing.
It is that love that will get you through the rough moments. If you don’t have the passion, quitting will be an option. When you have that love, quitting is not even in the vocabulary.
How To Be A Successful Entrepreneur Tip #3: Hard Work
I know that some people have a difficult time equating entrepreneurs with hard work. We often picture hard work with some men along side the road digging with shovels.
When I say hard work, it may not be physical, but you need to work hours upon hours while those ditch diggers are drinking beer and watching football. You get up at 6 AM and find yourself shutting your laptop down at 11 PM.
IT IS HARD WORK THAT CREATES SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS
How To Be A Successful Entrepreneur Tip #4: Find Problems To Solve
The key to entrepreneurial success is finding a problem and solving it. Some entrepreneurs even look into the future and prophesy future problems. They work to solve the problem first and have the flagship product.
Look around you; there are problems to be solved everywhere. Listen to people… They will tell you the problems they need solved.
How To Be A Successful Entrepreneur Tip #5: Market… Market… Market
No matter how great your product is; no matter how your idea can solve a myriad of problems – you and your brand will not become known and used unless you market yourself.
I say market yourself because marketing your product is secondary. You need to build your brand. The brand is you!
Every day there are new, or revised marketing techniques being used.
- Social media
- PPC ads
- and many others
Keep abreast of marketing. You can never learn too much.
