The Age of the Entrepreneur - 6

The Age of the Entrepreneur - 6

1.      Entrepreneurs ask the right questions. They know the questions they ask determines what their brain focuses on so they ask questions that are bigger than their answers.
2.      Entrepreneurs make a difference. They know that making a difference comes before they can make a profit. Money is a by-product of creating value in the lives of others.
3.      They ask the why questions before they ask the how questions. They provide products and services that change people’s lives. They know why they are in the businesses they are in.
4.      Entrepreneurs have high adaptability. They are always adapting and adopting new ways to explain the value they provide. They let their lives speak.
5.      They define and redefine the business they are in. They attach a business to their purpose and their cause instead of attaching a purpose and cause to their business.
6.      Entrepreneurs come up with their own answers.  They are aware that their answers may be laughable, ridiculed, and unbelievable at first. Once the world sees what they created it becomes simple to understand and accept.
7.      They take full responsibility for their decisions. They know the consequences of their decisions and they can live with them. The respond to opportunity with the huger of a starving lion.

Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Share them with others.   
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.

Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
