Living the life of an entrepreneur certainly has its challenges – least of which involves trying to be the very best that you can be. We strive to be the best in every aspect of entrepreneurship, from marketing to negotiating to finding our target audience and so on. We truly are a jack of all trades, yet trying to do everything to perfection ensures only one thing: that we will never be a master of anything.
So how do the best entrepreneurs become ‘the best?’ It starts with acknowledging your talents. You became an entrepreneur for a reason. Maybe that was because you knew you could dominate a certain market in your area with an array of stellar products, or perhaps you enjoy providing a service to people and wanted to make a living doing that. You have your reasons, and as a result you already have an idea regarding your strengths and which areas you are weak. Whatever your answer may be, do your part to become even better in those areas! Become better in certain areas where you’re weak, but place your main focus on areas where you are skilled.
You can’t just ignore the areas where you are weak, though. This is where having a great time is so vital, so listen us: it is imperative to find people that know more than you and get them on your side! The most successful people in history have all had one thing in common: they have an incredible support group. Where they fall short in certain dimensions of their brand, someone is there to pick up the slack and keep the brand strong as a whole. I posted an article last year titled, Lone Wolves Are Anything But, which emphasizes the importance of teamwork. Brands don’t become successful thanks to the hard work of just one person. Rather, they reach success thanks to the hard work, talents, and dedication of other people. The best brands operate as one, strong entity thanks to the tireless efforts of the entrepreneur’s employees. By pooling all of their talents together, they end up with a business that is rock solid.
So no, you don’t know everything and you’re not awesome at every little thing – but you’re not going to be, nor should you try to be. Focus on the things that brought you into the world of entrepreneurship to begin with, and choose the employees that are going to fill in the cracks of your brand. Above all, be the leader these employees need to be. They are going to need someone that leads, inspires, and works alongside them for the greater good. By inspiring them to work alongside their employees and yourself, you are going to become a cohesive unit that’s stronger than even the most talented entrepreneur could ever be!
