Rick Carter - Your Business 2.0
While our focus in this show is on Leadership and Entrepreneurship In every show we talk about what being an Encore Entrepreneur means to help you understand the what and the why before launching into the how.
To help with this we have 2 regular segments -
Opportunities for the Modern Elder in start up business - Part Mentor and part Intern
Future Back Thinking - how to plan today having some clarity (not certainty) about future trends - leverage your past to plan the future of your business
When you decide that you want to start a big business because you have your passion, your purpose and your vision in sync you really need to look into yourself and understand if you have what it takes. You need to ask the key questions.
Am I a Leader or a Follower?
We talked about Simon Sinek’s approach and recommended some links to his explanations (see below)
Am I an Entrepreneur or a potential small business owner?
Entrepreneur – we need to elevate the word. Aspiring entrepreneurs are stopping themselves from achieving their potential by rewarding themselves with the title, too early. I recommend you hold off on telling your friends you’re the next Richard Branson until you actually have something to show for it. Instead, use your obscurity to fuel your entrepreneurial fire and emerge victorious when the time comes for you to herald your newly found success
