Yes, It Takes a Team, However Entrepreneurs, Choose Your Team Members Wisely!
A common challenge many entrepreneurs face is finding and keeping the best talent to accomplish their business goals.
“Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it” – Henry David Thoreau
Unfortunately some entrepreneurs are indecisive when it comes to making decisions, and will often are desperate at finding an employee/partner etc that they will accept practically anyone without doing the proper due diligence.
A person in this case whose performance is poor and hurting the business will often times receives many second chances, with the indecisive entrepreneur to scared to pull trigger and fire event the least productive people on the team, which inevitably happens but not before valuable time and resources have been wasted.
Another type of entrepreneur is strong, resolved and committed to finding good team members. there is no rush to judgment about prospective team members. Decisions come without emotion and poor performers rarely get a second chance.
“High achievers spot rich opportunities swiftly, make big decisions quickly and move into action immediately. Follow these principles and you can make your dreams come true.” – Robert H. Schuller
In order to be a more successful entrepreneur and reach your goals more quickly you should accept only the best people as team members.
The most important thing you should do that will pay dividends long term in many ways is to be sure to surround yourself with an excellent team of advisors who can help you pinpoint a viable business ownership opportunity.
Equally as important as surrounding yourself with a great team is adopting the ability to embrace change and embrace technology.
In many ways similar to the industrial age, the information age has brought great wealth and prosperity to a minority of people that have truly have embraced technology. For the majority of the population the information age has meant a change in employment and financial situation either for better or worse as many of the old established jobs are either eliminated or greatly changed as new different jobs are created.
Many of the older large slow moving companies are set to lose out in the new fast paced information age economy against today’s smaller entrepreneurial revolutionaries.
Today’s opportunities for entrepreneurs are unlike any we have experienced in history, so far. Smart start ups and sharp small businesses will not only disrupt the big corporates, but will replace them. It’s tough for the dinosaurs but great news for you as you could become number one in your market in the information age.
Small companies, often overlooked by big companies now have the ability with little resources to overtake big companies.
