How To Be An Entrepreneur: Know Yourself

Instead of a step by step ‘how to’ list, let’s look at a broader picture.  No one fits in a box and if you are looking at starting your own business, you probably don’t want to.

What is this picture? It is YOU.  The key to being a successful entrepreneur is to know yourself.  Having your own business is more than just creating a job.  You will have roles in finance, sales, administration, and the responsibility of personnel.  There isn’t one company where the CEO is also the CFO, human resources director, and day shift manager.  Take an inventory of your strengths and know which parts of the business you can handle yourself and where you will need help.

Creating relationships with strategic partners not only affects the day-to-day operations of your business but will also pay off long-term with a built-in support network and marketing team.
