Do you remember the first time you got the twinge of entrepreneurial interest... the first moment you thought about the idea of actually working for yourself and controlling your financial future? It's pretty intoxicating, isn't it? I know it was for me.
In Episode 117 we take a look at the first questions a new entrepreneurial apprentice needs to consider if they are going to seriously pursue the world of small business. This mindset is something few talk about because it's not nearly as sexy as the latest shiny object, but is much more important to long term viability.
We also walk through a simple, and scientifically validated process for you to understand exactly what your strengths are and why it's crucial to focus on them. The business applications for this are many, but there are just as many ramifications to your personal life.
Over the last several weeks, we have talked about the way small business leaders operate during natural disasters like the hurricanes and fires America has been fighting. Now, we find ourselves responding to an unconscionable act in the Las Vegas massacre.
While many will focus on the pure evil that was the perpetrator, and reasons why he may have committed this unspeakable act, we will focus on the actions of fellow Americans. In the moment, while many panicked, others stayed strong and served others... some sacrificing their own lives to protect strangers.
In the days, weeks and months to follow, the business community, small, medium and large, will serve Las Vegas. Entrepreneurs will find creative ways to help heal their home town and others will reach out to deliver kindness in many forms to Las Vegas. Entrepreneurs' penchant for service shines through even during the darkest times.
