Suggestions to the aspiring entrepreneur

Posted by derekbobo on April 26, 2009

Starting and growing a business takes a tremendeous amount of work. In the early phases this often means you are wearing a lot of hats to make it happen. If you’re not careful it can consume (or even destroy) your life. In order to avoid this I have the following suggestions:

Define yourself. Humans are interesting creatures and ever growing and changing. Before you launch into an endeavor make sure you know who you are and what you stand for. Write it down and revisit it often. This should be what always guides your decision making. Don’t lose yourself when times get tough.

Make sure you have an outlet. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “all work and no play make Jack a dull boy.” If you don’t have an outlet it’s easy to get locked into tunnel vision. When this happens you can lose sight of what you’re really after or not notice the terrain changing around you.

Stay true to yourself. Make sure you always remember to give that husband, wife, and/or kids a hug and let them know you love them. Take time to sneak a round of golf or play the guitar. At the end of the day it’s usually these types of things that start the drive. Don’t lose sight of that.
