7 Tips for Surviving The Leap From Employee to Entrepreneur | Nuori yrittäjä | Scoop.it

Becoming a successful entrepreneur takes more than a great idea and important connections (although both do help). Making the shift from the steady life of a full-time employee to the unpredictable world of entrepreneurship requires a shift in mindset that many overlook. In fact, some of the work habits you so carefully honed as a good employee don’t necessarily translate well into the world of an entrepreneur.

 

According to the Small Business Administration, only half of new businesses will survive to see their fifth year. Making that mental switch from employee to entrepreneur can help you avoid being one of those businesses that doesn’t make it. Here are seven tips for thriving while adjusting to life as an entrepreneur.

Great tips on making it as an Entrepreneur.    I really appreciate the one about dealing with social isolation!  


Its not just being alone, it is about having to do a lot of strategizing and execution without anyone there to give you feedback or support.

7 Habits of Remarkably Likeable Bosses

7 Habits of Remarkably Likeable Bosses | Nuori yrittäjä | Scoop.it

 

ccording to recent research, 86 percent of employees believe that if they like their boss they are more productive. So forget about cracking the whip. Instead, build these seven habits into your leadership persona.


Sounds obvious, but simply taking a moment to greet your employees (by name!) and make small talk with them goes a long way to increasing your likeability as a boss. Be as approachable and accessible as possible. Take time to compliment employees and ask them how their day is going. Be patient; remember that it's important to set aside time for your people, no matter how busy you are. In fact, that busyness yours and theirs makes a friendly word even more important.

How To Make The Perfect First Impression (According To Science)

How To Make The Perfect First Impression (According To Science) | Nuori yrittäjä | Scoop.it

Can we really judge a book by its cover? When it comes to making snap judgments about others, it turns out, we may be pretty good at doing just that.

 

We've all heard the truism, "You only make one first impression." It's true -- and these impressions may be more powerful than we would imagine.

 

Our brains take in a huge number of verbal and non-verbal cues almost instantaneously when we meet someone (or just look at a photo of them) to calculate powerful impressions that are often as accurate as the impressions we form over longer periods of time.
