The Entrepreneur and People: Although it is a common trait amongst entrepreneurs is that they like to be the boss, it does not mean that they are elitist. They need to be in charge for practical reasons and is not a status trip. In fact when in charge, entrepreneurs typically employ an egalitarian style of management. Entrepreneurs are honourable people who would do business on a handshake or promise (if they could) and tend to form strong associations with others who share the same ethos.

Their temperament package radiates a certain charm that makes for binding relationships, which inspires cooperation, confidence and loyalty. It is this genuine relationship that entrepreneurs form with their financiers, partners, vendors, sub-contractors, professionals and employees that supercharges their organisations and though small in numbers is big in stature and capable of taking on the giants in any industry. Being mostly generalists, entrepreneurs have no problems employing people smarter than themselves. In fact, it is almost a prerequisite to their success that they do.

Richard Branson - People

Richard Branson talks about the importance of getting good people. Of all the rare, immutable and un-substitutable resources an entrepreneur can secure to build their enterprise, it is the people resources that is the most valuable. This is why every person an entrepreneur meets is seen as a potential resource or teacher. Entrepreneurs want you to teach them what they don抰 know and if they perceive you know too much, then they want to employ you. Right then!

Money Blitz Word of the Day

Inventory shrinkage -- a reduction in the amount of inventory that is not easily explainable. The most common cause of shrinkage is probably theft.

Money Blitz Quote of the Day

The pace at eBay was frantic and urgent. We knew that if we didn't move fast, somebody would come into the market and quash us. Participant doesn't make a lot of sense from a financial investment perspective, so it's unlikely that other people will be approaching the business in the same way. So you see less urgency; you see a thoroughness and willingness to spend extra time to get things right. Which I think is really important. -Jeff Skoll
