Most books tell you to ‘go for it’, ‘dream big’, ‘follow your passion’, and so on… but the thing is, these might be too dangerous of an advice for those who are just setting foot in entrepreneurship. Aspiring entrepreneurs must know the realities and learn how to be critical about them. So, in this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, Rob discusses how to really think like an entrepreneur without the flowery and delusive whatnots you need roaming around the Web. There are only 9 things one must take note, to start and develop his entrepreneurial career. Know more about them when you listen in.
- Wear the very opposite of the rose-tinted glasses. Optimism isn’t bad at all IF you could see what’s beneath the surface—the real problems and the severity of the situation.
- See an opportunity in everything. When an entrepreneur’s bombarded with tricky situations, instead of acting up, he immediately gets his thinking hat on and draw out some solutions while having to monetize at the same time.
- Create MORE value. An entrepreneur, even in the middle of recession, or any economical, political changes, will do everything to produce more for the consumers. When you create a product or service that people value, it’s only then that it becomes fulfilling.
- Create value NOW. Entrepreneurs offer their expertise without thinking much of what they’ll get. They know that their will be risk, but they also know that people trust you more when they see real outcomes.
- We solve, we serve, and we scale. You can start small, then grow it into an empire. Think big.
- Create fair exchange. As an entrepreneur, you’ll be transparent with everything that you do. Always do the right thing. Make sure that the products are fairly priced no matter what.
- Take calculated risks, progressive incremental risks. You can’t go all in whenever you see fit. Make sure you’re well-equipped first—educate yourself.
- We are producers, value-creators. Are you producing or consuming? Producers are the changemakers, the trendsetters. You’re on a mission to create a positive effect on everyone’s lives.
- Disrupt, innovate, repeat. It’s always a cycle in entrepreneurship. It’s difficult to control the external factors involved, so insteatting them control your progress, be the change that you want to see. Always bring new ideas on the table.
- “You got to be able to spot the problems.”
- “They are PRODUCERS for the consumers”
- “Entrepreneurs seem to create more jobs, seem to pay more taxes.”
