You the entrepreneur: Entrepreneurs are people so totally engaged with the outside world that they can tend to pay too little attention to their one greatest asset themselves. It is paramount for the entrepreneur to understand and accept what makes them tick. They need to accept that to all others they will be the black sheep. This is normal. They need to understand that whilst others climbed high up the pole of their specialised careers, theirs will be a career of the generalist building more a mound of skills that allowed for easy movement across many fields and skills. They need to accept that whilst not always completing higher education studies they will become masters of their craft, honed in the world of the practical hands-on. Entrepreneurs need to know their place. They need to understand when they should lead and when they should step back to allow other skill sets to manage the growing venture.

Now whilst not part of their natural gift, entrepreneurs need to educate themselves on the other half of business success business acumen. The cheapest way to learn these skills is through formal education, however most entrepreneurs choose the far more expensive option from the University of Hard Knocks. Which ever way the learning takes place, these are lessons that must be learned if the entrepreneur is ever going to create a successful and sustainable enterprise. Another unusual characteristic of the entrepreneur is the concept of self-branding. They share this attribute with the show ponies and the egotists but again for different reasons. Entrepreneurs know that they will be at the epicentre of any new venture and so it is vital that they have a reputation that inspires trust, that demonstrates courage to act alone if needs be, that copes effectively with the unforseen and that can create the future. So, they have no hesitation in placing themselves at the forefront of any option to volunteer, any option for publicity or any option that allows them to demonstrate or build their reputation. It is the hit they take for the team even though the team has not yet been formed. Anita Roddick again "We entrepreneurs are loners, vagabonds, troublemakers. Success is simply a matter of finding and surrounding ourselves with those open-minded and clever souls who can take our insanity and put it to good use."

"It is a condition of living that we are compelled to withdraw 24hours of time each day from our account at the Bank of Existence. What will you do with that time? Squander it on the fleeting gratification of your senses? Will your use it to acquire those decaying and life-absorbing assets? Will you flitter it on the winds of nothing to do or will you invest it in the incorruptible legacy for a fellow travelers betterment. PB

Money Blitz Word of the Day

Opportunity cost -- a useful concept in evaluating alternate opportunities. If you choose alternative A, you cannot choose B, C, or D. What is the cost or loss of profit of not choosing B, C, or D? This cost or loss of profit is the opportunity cost of alternative A. In personal life you may buy a car instead of taking a European vacation. The opportunity cost of buying the car is the loss of the enjoyment of the vacation.

Money Blitz Quote of the Day

It doesnt matter how many times you fail. It doesnt matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because... All that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are. -Mark Cuban
