Entrepreneurs are separated from creative dreamers on this point. Entrepreneurs know how to ‘make it real’. Whilst possessing the perceptive vision that can foresee future societal paradigm shifts they can equally explain the ‘what comes next’ in making it so. Whilst this is not always part of the ‘idealist’ gift of entrepreneurship, the’ keeping it real’ soon becomes a cornerstone skill of successful entrepreneurial engagements.

Entrepreneurs have an objective approach which while empathising with people’s needs are more concerned with the performance and accomplishment. Entrepreneurs are obsessed with the ‘truth’. The what’s real. They are honest and straightforward in their dealings and expect others to do likewise. This is often an area that they lose out to other commercially engaged players whose truth is subjectively determined by the greatest personal monetary gain. Still, entrepreneurs learn the best aspects of business acumen from their commercial counterparts but apply it to their ventures without the need to sell their soul to the ‘money over all’ mantra. Get-rich-quick is not in the entrepreneur’s vocabulary.

Herb Kelleher, the entrepreneur who started Southwest Airlines, identifies this keep it real approach in entrepreneurs with what he calls [7] “a pleasant sense of scepticism”. This mind set can challenge on points of reality without turning negative or destroying motivation. He says that he plays the passionate advocate who applies “sound judgement to focus on the truly important issues, and delivering the type of positive yet challenging scepticism needed to fully explore ideas”

"Reality is in the ‘what is’ not in the ‘what should be’" PB

Money Blitz Word of the Day

Fixed cost -- a cost that does not change as sales volume changes (in the short run.) Fixed costs normally include such items as rent, depreciation, interest, and any salaries unaffected by ups and downs in sales.

Money Blitz Quote of the Day

Business is recognizing the role it can play in combatting climate change. Thank God, is all I can say, for there is a desperately urgent need for business to play that role. Your lobbying influence can be substantial, but together, united and in large enough numbers it could prove decisive in turning the tide. -Prince Charles
