WallaceBurch: How to employ an entrepreneur

WallaceBurch: How to employ an entrepreneur | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Entrepreneurs focus on goals, achieve success and create wealth.  Boy, wouldn’t you want some of them working for you?

 

The problem is that the best entrepreneurs are unemployable.  They do things their way, they don’t care for the niceties of policy and procedure – especially when defined by someone else, they won’t do what they’re told, and they don’t care too much if they upset a few people along the way.  In summary, they’re unmanageable.

WallaceBurch: Why entrepreneurs fail – incompetence or bad luck?

WallaceBurch: Why entrepreneurs fail – incompetence or bad luck? | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Have you ever heard a business owner blame their lack of business success on themselves, or is it because of the banks, the competition, market change or some other similar reason, apparently beyond their power to influence?  Rather like the sales exec who wins orders because of their own skills, and loses orders because of flaws in product, poor marketing, or price. Yeah, right.

WallaceBurch: Should you be an Entrepreneur?

WallaceBurch: Should you be an Entrepreneur? | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

There’s a lot of pressure out there for people to set up and run their own business.  The government encourages entrepreneurship, almost every second article on business-related social media promotes the benefits, and the whole concept of running your own show is made to be enticingly attractive.  But there’s downsides too, many of which are swept under the carpet away from view.

 So is it the right choice for you? To a large extent this depends on what sort of person you are and what you expect and want to achieve in life.
