Hats You Should Expect to Wear As a Budding Entrepreneur
As an aspiring entrepreneur, you must be very versatile, a chameleon and be ready to adjust and change with every new challenge and opportunity that arises. You will need to take on many different roles; to be able to shift and change positions with finesse. Let us take a look at some of the hats you will be wearing as you strive for and achieve success.
The ArtistAre you a visionary, an artist? Are you good at working with the tools you have to create something spectacular? Do you understand that creativity doesn't come from how much you’re given, but instead from what you’re able to do with what you have? Do you try practicing creativity every day?
The TeacherYou will need to learn and listen, guide and understand and share your wisdom with those who are willing to learn. Just because you're talented doesn't mean that you'll be great at explaining your methods easily. All strong leaders have a great team of like-minded individuals they work with. Be ready to practice patience, and explain yourself thoroughly and concisely.
The CoachAs the coach, you know the game and how to play it. You started on the field and understand the plays needed to make the game changing goal. You will need to inspire; be quick to adjust your game plan and coordinate your team for success.
The RookieBeing on top is not always the best course of action, remember your humble beginnings. Think about your core talents, what made you great and what sets you apart. Work alongside your team and push them to bring out their talents too. Never forget your roots.
The WizardWhat is your own "je ne sais quoi"? What magic do you bring to what you do or say which cannot be duplicated. Consider your own natural genius – how you make things happen which no one else can explain. This is your charisma and your talent.
Have fun wearing these different hats and also think about your own special ones you put on when you need to.
