So you want to be a successful entrepreneur, surely a dream team will help you rise above the ordinary and give you the opportunity to zoom past the limits of possibility. In the ‘References’ section below I have included links for three successful entrepreneurs who are part of a truly great dream team. Believe me when I say working for someone else is not for everyone!
Myth One: Anybody can become a successful entrepreneur
It’s true people with former business experiences and high intelligence skills make a lot of money. That is not to say that any transition from commercial business to the world of entrepreneurship is easy work. When you are first starting out it can seem like it is a never ending endless stream of hard work getting things going and making money.
Truth: Just about anybody has what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Anybody with determination and drive can get over the initial tough ramp site. Anyone can fly! And that leads me to the next myth.
Myth Two: Theastute entrepreneur catches opportunities that other don’t recognize
Trust me when I say that most people (and a few being the rare birds) feel comfortable with what they know, usually because they have built it up over a period of time. They also become so secure in their existing relationships they fail to recognize others around them seeing opportunities and applying themselves to them. It reminded me of a story I heard sometime ago and I think the story does justice because the key message is to seek out experience that you have never even thought existed or maybe has existed yet all in order to help you spot opportunities that others aren’t seeing.
Truth: Anyone can learn to spot opportunities. It is a case of “do you know what that is?”
People are never allowed enough time to ask for advice or help in finding opportunity they think they can find. ‘Thinking on your feet’, ‘kicking the cat’ is another way of saying it or ‘not seeing the wood for the trees’. I think entrepreneurs can and should ask their experience people. Why? Because not everyone can see opportunity in new ways.
You don’t want to overlap this up to novel level yet some of the best and brightest of the question telling ‘entrepreneurs’ have seen opportunity where others didn’t,IOCh,staying at a place of note.
As for the myth that there are some people who are immune from making money. That simply isn’t true. Find a few that you can rely on and let them educate you on the business of doing whatever and take advantage of their viewpoint.
Myth Three: Anybody can set up a dream team
If you are talking about reallyTHINGlong term you should say you can be a great entrepreneur who has a dream team or an ‘entrepreneur’s team’.
Entrepreneurs should have a character and work together. It’s like a couple, even though one of the two may really be single, you really need a couple on your side. You can work alone just fine as long as you don’t have any of your particular interests in play, especially when both have different specialties.
Truth: I wasn’t aware that was a belief!
Myth Four: The dream team is a big group
My experience has told me that many entrepreneurs believe that they need to be some kind of ‘super hero’ and they need to go up to a higher up on the corporate ladder to get things done and take those good ideas across the company. In the real world anybody can assemble a dream team up to six people especially with the help of stenographer and a team player.
Truth: Dream team is neither a big or a small party; it consists of a group of people who just want, need and are prepared to do back what they said they would do when they got in to the business.
Truth: I believe that most people can emulate this when they need to do it.
Myth Five: All this fun is just a clubbing trip
Yes it is fun, no question. But you are not destined to spend say a day per day keeping moving with beautiful dreams, you may do so, but that’s an artificial day. Like when you go for a fun night out. You can, however, join the craps table and buy five pairs of dice for your group, but in that case it’s not fun, you will be doing the most exciting thing ever, but it’s an artificial act, like some form of team building.
Truth: You need more than just fun to make an experience out of ‘myth’
Yes, there are ‘fun’ outcomes. But there are many ways to make an event like a week Lone promBoot Festival, goes really well a good drive from one end to another.
