I read an article that said our children are more and more interested in entrepreneurship. I find this interesting, as most small businesses fail with in the first two years. My daughter recently entered college and they are offering courses in entrepreneurship as well.
However, I ask myself what this could include?
How to be accountable and to whom?
How to create conflict that will benefit the growth of the organization?
Do you have a mission/vision statement that will direct you?
Can you manage your resources?
Can you create strategy in an ever changing environment?
How do you communicate your vision/mission statement?
And so many more…..
I have a MBA and these things were never taught. It has taken years of experience, outside courses and actually hiring a business coach to help me focus myself on what is important for the corporation. I actually had to change the way I saw the business in order to make better decisions.
Specifically, I had to realize that “I” was not the business. There were so many other factors: economy, buying habits, product lines, opportunities created with technology, employees, legal and compliance issues. I was the leader!
This was truly eye opening. It assisted me in making difficult decisions when I knew it was for the good of corporation.
Over the next few weeks, I would like to share some of the awesome experiences and things I have learned. My hope that is that all entrepreneurs will start to see things differently in order to be more successful.
Creating a buzz….
