DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN ENTREPRENEUR?

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN ENTREPRENEUR? | Social Media Marketing | Scoop.it

David Bembry's insight:

I simply like to say that "I'm too stupid to quit!" I've operated with no cheering section or other support for over 15 years while I raise kids alone. I do what I do because I'm compelled to do it and don't see anything as a failure. Afterall, nothing is promised in life. Not even life itself. It's all about the adventure and just going for it. That alone keeps me content. Your best is all you've got in this life. Sometimes it'll be enough, other times it won't. It's just life. No worries!

I hope this post will minister to you the same way it has to me. Being an entrepreneur is tough. There are many times that you may want to throw in the towel but remember why you're doing what you are doing.

Tagmotion's curator insight, February 26, 8:52 PM

Terrific article that mentions the importance of being 'in flow' with whatever you're doing in your entrepreneurial venture. And provides a link to a test you can do to find out what that is.

"Sharing insight on a topic you're well versed in"... This is so fundamental to being a Thought Leader.


Shana Starr lists five steps. I subscribe to all of them.


I'd add content curation to them: finding, acknowledging and sharing great content created by others also contributes to demonstrating your expertise and willingness to share; a legit and effective addition to writing; a necessary skill of Thought Leaders.


1. Clarify your purpose

2. Identify your voice

3. Write

4. Build an active online presence

5. Be a mentor.


Great post, wise advices.

First impressions count, whatever the occasion.   It's definitely worth taking the time to get this part of your personal brand right.

 

More and more, first impressions are formed online - I now regularly search a candidate's Social Media presence before interviewing for a role on my teams.

 

Our challenge is to make sure that our central pitch is consistent and true (people can spot a fake!) but it needs to be tailored for each SM platform. 

 

Different words, same message.
