Entrepreneurs make up the vast majority of our world economy. While corporate giants fuel activity in many sectors, it’s the grind and grit of dedicated individuals who make the world turn.
Entrepreneurship is not new. Having your own business goes back for centuries. Think of the market scenes in great old movies you love. Every one of those street vendors was an entrepreneur.
Even some of the large name brands you know today started as entrepreneurs.
- Ray Croc and McDonald’s
- Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak at Apple
- Bill Gates
- The list goes on
Starting a Business
However, starting a business is not for the faint of heart. It takes dogged determination to make your idea fly. Once the new idea starts generating revenue, you immediately get challenged by the need to understand how to operate the business. Entrepreneurship develops into a much bigger view than just the simple idea you started.
This is where finding resources to help you run and grow your business becomes so critical.
I’ve been coaching business owners for decades. First, as a commercial banker, I met dozens of owners who needed help getting to the next level. Then as a business consultant, I helped companies and their leadership teams find new and better ways to make the business grow.
Today, I am still coaching, advising and consulting with clients, but I’ve broadened my own reach by writing my blog “Leadership Powered by Common Sense”. I also produce a sister lineup of podcasts and video content that follow the articles published in the blog.
These resources along with many of my checklists, tools, and ebooks are offered free of charge. Just hop over to the home page and browse through the pages of the blog to find links for the various resources you can grab.
Finding Bigger Success
You started your business to fulfill the dreams and goals you had.
- Creating time for family
- Leveraging your expertise or passions
- Creating independent wealth
- Creating something that makes a difference
All of these are great reasons to become an entrepreneur. But it takes doing the right things to make the dream come true. A business coach can help you get there faster than your own trial and error. Plus, it costs a lot less in the long run. Often I can show a business owner a win in the first few meetings that is valued at 5x or 10x over my fees.
