The Entrepreneur Mindset E26 – Transcript

Janet Fish 0:07
If you’re listening to this right now, you’re probably already an entrepreneur, or you’re thinking of becoming one. Whether you’ve already got a business or you’re just contemplating the idea of starting one. Have you ever wondered if there’s a mindset that successful entrepreneurs and business owners have? Are there traits and characteristics that determine success? I’d personally say yes. And today I’d like to explore what those traits are, and how they craft a mindset that leads to success. Not every successful business person has all the traits we’ll discuss here. However, they all have a mindset that’s responsible for their success. For those of us willing to take the risk owning our own successful business means financial freedom. I define financial freedom as the ability to do what I want, when I want with whomever I want. Financial Freedom look like an entrepreneur working for themselves, paying their own bills. With enough left over to enjoy the simple life. It could look like multiple houses, expensive cars and travel and an extravagant lifestyle. My feeling is for most of us, it’s somewhere in between. What does financial freedom looked like for you? And what are you willing to sacrifice to get it? Yep, I said sacrifice. You see, starting and growing a successful business is hard. That’s why 50% of all businesses fail in the first five years. According to a study done by the Harvard Business School. For the last 15 years I’ve worked with over 1000 clients in 16 countries. I’m a business coach. And while I’ve worked with all sizes of companies, my passion is working with entrepreneurs and business owners who have yet to reach that $10,000 a month milestone. I focus on that particular goal because the first 75,000 to 100 hundred thousand dollars is the hardest money to make. Once there, it’s easy to make double or triple that because your infrastructure is in place, you know what to do, and you just need to do more of it. So I set off to explore what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur. What I found was that it takes a certain mindset, a different way of thinking that separates the successful from the unsuccessful, we get sold a bill of goods every time we hear someone talking about how easy it is to have a successful and thriving business. It’s just not true. It takes work, character guts, with a little bit of crazy thrown in. I’ve been an entrepreneur since 2005. coming straight out of corporate America, it was a really tough transition. I really didn’t understand what it took to build a successful business. So there I was having just quit my job, scared with no support, full of doubt, wondering what the heck I was going to do next. Perhaps that’s exactly where you are right now. So if that’s the case, don’t freak out. Help us on the way. You see. You don’t have to do it alone. alone. In fact, if you’re thinking you’re going to do it alone, forget that you’ll most likely quit long before you see success. Instead, surround yourself with other business owners hire a coach or a mentor, join a community of entrepreneurs, having been through it and having worked with so many people to build successful businesses. Here’s what they won’t tell you that I will. It’s really hard. It takes persistence and consistency. You can’t do it alone. You definitely need a team. It does take a certain mindset, you will fall you will fail before you succeed, and quitting is not an option. The network for teaching entrepreneur defines the entrepreneurial mindset set as the set of attitudes, skills and behaviors that is needed to succeed academically, personally and professionally. These include initiative, self direction, risk taking, flexibility and adaptability. Creativity, Innovation, critical thinking and problem solving. Other definitions include the ability to see opportunities, Marshal resources, and create value. So do you really want to be an entrepreneur? Do you have what it takes? There is really there really is such a thing as the entrepreneurial mindset. So today I’d like to explore your why. What motivates you to succeed and how your y can support you when you face your challenges? entrepreneurial traits, what are the traits that makes successful leaders and entrepreneurs. It’s all about the doing what you do is different from your mindset. Your actions will lead to your success. And then the mindset itself, putting it all together how a certain traits create the mindset for success. So let’s just start with your why. Creating and growing a business really does start with your why the underlying reason that you want to grow start grow a business. If you’re currently in a business or you’re thinking about it, you know, there will be challenges. There’ll be big challenges

facing and conquering those challenges is what is what helps us change and grow. starting a business is huge, and it takes courage and guts. It takes getting out of our comfort zone, trying new things that may even scare the daylights out of us hack. If you’re not scared, you’re really not trying hard enough. When you finally commit to taking that giant scary step forward, it’s often because your why is so strong, so compelling that the thought of staying stuck where you are is even more frightening than moving forward. Let me say that again. you’ll move when the pain of staying where you are staying stuck is worse than the pain, the fear of moving forward. Your y can be a very deeply motivating force that can help you through those tough times. It can be the one thing gets you back on track when you stumble and fall, I have a very strong and deep why as to how I became a coach. And the reason I know it’s my gift and my calling. Over the years, I’ve tried to quit coaching a number of times. Yet every time I did, I found myself with more and more clients. And I was really enjoying the journey, not just mine, but my clients journey as well. My dear friend and mentor will maddix confirmed what I already knew the last time I saw him. He taught me how to coach and he mentored me in my coaching journey, as well as a few other really interesting endeavors that we won’t go into here. He saw coaching as my gift long before I saw it, as many good coaches and mentors see the brilliance in our clients well before they see it in themselves. So what’s your Why? What do you call to do? What motivates you to do the hard things? my invitation to you is to go spend 15 minutes or so Floor your Why? What is the reason that you’re doing what you’re doing? Because we know it’s hard. write those down keep it where you can easily get access to it. Should you stumble and fall should you reach any of those challenges and need to get reengaged by reacquainting yourself with the reason you did it in the first place. Now that we have your why let’s it’s time to set some goals for what you really want to accomplish. I believe every successful entrepreneur should start each new challenge with written down goals on what he or she wants to accomplish. While you may not always know at the start where you want to end up, it certainly helps to have a good idea. As a successful entrepreneur. I like the idea of setting goals. However many successful entrepreneur wannabes make three critical mistakes in goal setting that leads to failure in accomplishing them. First they create lofty goals that are way too big ever achieve. While I’m all about stretch goals and pushing yourself, let’s face it, if you strive for something that’s not doable, you’ll most likely quit out of frustration long before you get to success. Second, they have too many goals, avoid the temptation and focus on some core goals that addressed the bigger picture of what you want to achieve. If there’s too many chances are you won’t cross any of them off the list. Third, their goals aren’t specific goals that are specific have a much higher chance of being accomplished than goals that are general, specific goals answer the six w questions. Who was involved? What do you want to accomplish? Where’s the location? What’s the timeframe? Which and what are the requirements and constraints and why do you want to accomplish the goal? Lastly, they fail to write down their their goals. Goals created in your head will remain there. Soon to be forgotten and never achieved. I typically set goals for a 12 month period. Each December I take time to review my goals from last year and set goals for the upcoming year. And of course I write them down. I think anyone who wants to be successful at something needs goals. If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know if you’ve arrived? successful entrepreneurs know there are goals and then there are effective goals. goals should be smart, Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and timely. And they absolutely need to be written down. It doesn’t matter what the date says on the calendar, commit to setting your goals right now. Write them down, share them with others, keep them where you can see them and review them at least quarterly. If you’ve already done goals for the year and you find that things have changed, like life has changed. COVID Thank you very much. Go back and pull those goals out and revisit them Because goals are what entrepreneurs that are successful do so just engage and start today.

Next I want to talk about the actual traits. What are the leadership traits of successful entrepreneurs? Can being a great leader lead to success in your business? What are the characteristics that make us great as entrepreneurial leaders? There’s no lack of opinions on what traits make great leaders. I started by creating my own list. Then I did some extensive research on what other industry experts thought were the traits of successful entrepreneurs. of the 22 traits that identified these are my top 10. open mindedness. Successful entrepreneurs keep an open mind. They don’t approach a problem or a situation thinking they know the answer, even though they may have some definitive thoughts on it. Being open and listening to the ideas of others is an important trait to have surrounding yourself with thought leaders and others with expertise that you lack can enable more powerful decision making. risk taking. building a business is hard and it takes risk. Being able to stomach that risk. The challenges the losses, the uphill battles that come with the territory starting and growing a business requires the ability to take risks. Learning how to mitigate risk and learning from the mistakes that will inevitably happen is what makes leaders great. empower others, whether it’s your team, your employees, your prospects, or your customers. The ability to empower others is what great leaders do. Being able to empower others not only means an emphasis on them, but also an eye for seeing and nurturing the strengths of others. There are so many ways that a focus outside of yourself makes someone a great leader. Being able to empower others is a formidable one, lifelong learning. One of my best friends is an expert in effective communication and leadership. She works with some of the most influential leaders in our government. She’s super smart, and has drummed into my head the importance of lifelong learning. Often we have a tendency to look at things through what we know. We interpret things through our experiences and knowledge. Keeping that thirst for learning for experiencing things in a new way. Free being open to exploring things we haven’t before, is one of the hallmarks of great leadership. Know your strengths and hire your weaknesses. You know, by now I’m all about team and hiring out things we don’t like to do or we’re not good at. great leaders know what they’re good at and surround themselves with people who excel at their weaknesses. Weak leaders think they can do it all and fail because their ego won’t let them admit that they can’t know your strengths and hire them. Rest. Resist the temptation to, to surround yourself with people like yourself. Build a diverse team whose skills address the needs of your business. persistence and consistency. great leaders keep at it, they don’t stop. They’re persistent and consistent. Consistent means you do what you need to do frequently without fail. Persistence means you keep going through the challenges, the failures, and the hard times. Integrity. This is one of my personal favorites. I learned a very hard lesson A long time ago about integrity. It’s one of my highest values and something I take very seriously. I’ve known some very successful business owners, people who have made a lot of money, but they lacked integrity. And in my opinion, we’re very poor leaders. I believe great leaders have integrity, and it’s one of their greatest, greatest strengths. Flexibility The ability to change to be nimble to go a different direction. To see things from another viewpoint are all characteristics of strong leaders decisiveness. To be a great leader, you really have to be able to make a decision. Leaders take in the facts that are available to them and decide they take action. They, by example, lead others. The ability to make a decision and act upon it is important to great leadership. Vision. great leaders see the big picture. They have a vision of where they are and where they want to go. They share that vision with others so that everyone knows the direction they’re going. everyone’s on the same page. Leadership requires direction and directions require vision.

Recently, I was on a panel of entrepreneurs and I was asked what advice I would give to someone who wanted to start a business at least a dozen went through my head from the tactical to the strategic. After the event I jotted down some notes. So here’s my advice for starting a business. One you don’t know everything and that’s okay. There are plenty of people out there willing to support you and give you advice. However, not all advice is good advice. So check in with your intuition and your gut before blindly following the leadership or advice of others. It’s okay to fail. In fact, it’s required. No successful business person has made it without making mistakes, and some of them can be really painful. Believe me, I know. The differentiator is learning from your mistakes and your failures. That’s what separates greatness from mediocrity. Don’t waste money on crap. spend money on experiences over material possessions. invest your money into assets that will grow your wealth over the long term. Filter who you let into your life. rid yourself of the negative naysayers who bring your debt bring you down. Surround yourself with other like minded entrepreneurs who support you and lift you up. stay humble. Regardless of how successful you become, you are no better than the poorest human who works their butt off to provide for their family. Embrace that which makes you unique. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. People want the real you. Even if it’s the quirky you pay it forward. Giving back to others can be one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of appreciating what you’ve been given in your life and paying it forward to others. traits are good. However, at the end of the day, it’s all about the doing. Being a successful entrepreneur is not always easy. That explains why so many fail. It’s those of us who stick it out, especially when the going gets tough that succeed. I’ve been an entre For over 15 years, here’s my list of successful entrepreneur tips. I wish I’d known then, that I know now. Things take longer than you expect them to always. I’ve never had a client complain that things are moving too fast. I’d say it’s the number one challenge I hear from my clients. They feel like they’re always behind that things are moving way too slow. In the beginning, that’s just the way it works. takes time to build the foundational components of your business. And these are often the things that are difficult to see. When you build a house. You start with the infrastructure, the foundation, then the plumbing, the electrical, the flooring, it’s only when the walls and the windows and the doors are in that it starts to look like a house. building your business is the same. Not everyone will support you. That’s sad, but very true. I saw my friends and family when I quit my job and I started my own business many years ago. People are funny. They don’t always want you to succeed. seed. They love you and they say they support you. But often they just don’t act like it. starting your own business takes courage and risk. And I found that people sometimes feel threatened by your gutsy actions, or they’re envious, that you’ve taken a step that they’re afraid to, if necessary, trade up some of your naysaying friends. If you can’t unfriend your family, your loved one, refrain from talking about your business. If all they’re doing is raining on your parade. The first hundred thousand dollars is the hardest money to make. Believe it or not, after you’ve consistently made 75,000 to 100,000, doubling or tripling that amount is really pretty easy. The hardest part is getting your foundation, your infrastructure, your processes and your systems in place. Once you’re there, growth is pretty easy. No one ever succeeds without failing first. Every successful entrepreneur or business owner will tell you that they have failed not just Once but many times before they actually succeeded. You may have heard the story of Fred Smith, he was the founder of FedEx. As a student at Yale University, he wrote a paper on the need for a system, which would improve the current delivery system and make logistics simpler for both the supplier and the customer. His Professor gave him a see your mistakes define you how you react to failure determines your success, learning from your mistakes, and taking these lessons and trying again, it’s never giving up because something didn’t work out. success comes from embracing your failures and using them to make you stronger.

Quitting is not an option, not if you want to be successful. We’ve already talked about failing. It’s how we respond to adversity that defines us. I’ve wanted to quit more than once I’ll admit, however, that’s taking the easy way out. For someone who has had success as an entrepreneur. We know It’s not easy. And it’s the best darn feeling in the world to know that you’ve done it. You push through the hard stuff, and you’ve made it. When I talk about financial freedom, whatever that means for you, I smile, my heart soars. There’s just nothing quite like that. Build it and they will come is so not true. A typical example of this is launching a website. I have clients who spend a lot of time and money developing their website, only to find that no one knows that it exists. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a firm believer in the need for a web presence. However, it’s not enough to build a website and then expect people will just show up, you have to drive traffic to your site. The same is true of building your business. Just starting a business doesn’t mean people will show up and start buying from you. You need an effective marketing strategy and a plan to get customers. Having online products means mailbox money, I love this One popular popular myth is that building a website and selling online products mean you can sit back and watch the money flow in. Eventually, that could be the case. However, it takes developing a strong marketing plan, generating leads and following up to build your online revenue, and it takes quite a bit of time. Follow your passion and success will follow is a false hood. It’s important to be passionate about what you do, particularly if you’re building your own business. However, it’s not enough. I’ve coached a lot of people who want to build a business around a cause that they care about why possessing none of the skills needed to succeed. A better approach might be to look at your skill set. What skills have you been successful with in the past and build a business around your strengths? surround yourself with greatness? successful entrepreneurs surround themselves with other successful entrepreneurs. Have you ever heard that saying you’re income is the average of the five people you most associate with, who you hang around with matters. being around people who get it, who share your zest for the challenge, who understand what it takes to be successful, really matters. When I left my corporate job, many of my old work buddies just didn’t understand. They stayed stuck in their old world spending their hours complaining about this and that and the other thing, what attract that was, I couldn’t really comprehend these old negative patterns until I was away from it. Hanging out with upbeat positive, energetic entrepreneurs was like a breath of fresh air. Not that things are always roses. One of the things I appreciate the most about my current sphere of influence is the support we give each other when things go a little sideways, or sometimes a lot sideways. trade up, okay, this idea can be a little dicey. So hear me out before you shake your head and move on. I’m not suggesting suggesting ditching your best friend or your family. I still have plenty of people in my life that don’t really understand me in my entrepreneurial lifestyle. That’s fine. I typically just don’t talk about that part of what I do with those people. What I mean by trade up is replacing the people in your life who don’t support you. You know who I mean? Those people who are so threatened by you doing something they would never have the guts to do that they rain all over your parade. The naysayers, the Debbie downers, the people who say, I hope you don’t lose all your money, when they really mean I hope you lose all your money so that I can feel vindicated. Staying stuck in a job that I hate or a life that seems burdensome is better than taking the risk. If you’re starting if you’re just starting out and you don’t have a community of people that are like minded, successful entrepreneurs, seek that out. Join a meetup group or a small business owners group the Chamber of Commerce, a BSI group. Start a mastermind group. Find a group of people that you can hang out with that will support you in your entrepreneurial endeavors. And know that you can’t do it alone and grow. It’s just for all you Lone Ranger’s out there who think no one can do things as well as you can. While that may very well be true, you’re never going to really grow a strong, substantial business without growing your team.

Entrepreneurs are not lazy, they work hard. There’s always so much to do, which for most of us leads to a sense of overwhelm. It happens to all of us, things will always take longer than you think or want them to overwhelm will definitely happen sooner or later expected and have a plan for when it does. So that plan should be written down. This is the most important thing you can do to combat overwhelm. And it’s surprising how many how few people actually keep an up to date and written plan. prioritize your plan. Knowing which activities are a priority is the first step to getting things done. So use the plan you’ve created. To determine which actions will result in money coming in your door the fastest, I use a 123 rating system. priority one needs to be done today or this week. Priorities two and three can be scheduled for a later time. One technique I couldn’t live without is calendaring. My process is to start with my written down plan, particularly around my marketing activities. My written down plan consists of the things I need to do and when I need to do them. So I take out my calendar and I take each of those to do items. And I actually block them out in time on my calendar. So I will block out times chunks of time on my calendar, particularly Literally around creation work. If I’m writing a blog, or I’m editing a podcast, or I’m working on a book, I block out times in my calendar that I’m going to sit down and work on that particular project. For example, I do a podcast. So every Monday, I block out two hours to edit the podcast, post the podcast, do all of the things I need to finish up getting that podcast published for that particular day. Scheduling time on your calendar makes a world of difference in effective productivity. I used to make myself crazy worrying about all the things that I wasn’t getting done. Now I put everything on my calendar, and I no longer worry about the things that aren’t getting done, because I know I’ve got them on the calendar somewhere to address at a later time and hiring team. We’ve talked about it a little bit already. But team is a critical component to growing your business. There are plenty of low cost resources that are available to help you build your team Fiverr indeed, Craigslist tackle there’s a bunch of different places that you can go to find quality help on a budget. So think about who you want to hire on your team, and then free up some of those hours by enlisting other people to do them for reasonable amounts of money. Have a mastermind group or have accountability. So once I’ve got my plan, I share it with my mastermind group or an accountability partner, someone that will hold me accountable to do what I say I will do in my plan. Having someone hold you accountable, really helped to make sure that the work actually gets done. Having that kind of support really comes in handy. For the times you live, you need a little morale boost, or just a swift kick in the butt. I have a really good friend Jim caspari. He’s been on the podcast. He’s one of my go to accountability partners. I talked to him numerous times during the week. We always share what we’re trying to accomplish, what our priorities are for the week. And then we usually wrap up the week with how are you doing towards those goals. And I find it just so helpful to not only have that support, but to have somebody to hold my feet to the fire to do the things that I say I’m going to do.

And then daily recentering This isn’t for everybody, but it is for me. Take time during your day, to relax, to be quiet to be reef to reflect, to meditate, whatever it is for you. Slow down a couple times during your day. Take some deep breaths. Be thankful for everything that you have. It is July Here, and I have a lovely garden in my backyard. And I’ve got all sorts of fruits and vegetables out there. So at least once a day, I get up from my chair, and I go out there and my neighbor says you got to talk to the plants. So I go talk to the plants, and I tell them how well they’re, they’re going. But I take moments during my day to separate myself, to let my mind rest to clear my mind. So I can come back in my office and kick some butt kick some ass when I get back at it, and then reward myself. So I struggle to sit for any length of time. And so I do this really goofy thing, which helps me really push through. I already talked about calendaring. So let’s say it’s Monday and I’ve got on my calendar, the two hours that I’m going to work on XYZ project. So I sit down and I’m working on the podcast, whatever it is, and distractions start to call my name, the phone rings. I hear the beep of the laundry. Whatever It is beep of the email which I’ve turned off. So I don’t hear emails coming in. But distractions start to call to you. Instead of giving into the distractions, I tell myself, at the end of these two hours, if I sit and I commit to these two hours, I’ll give myself a reward. I know it’s kind of a goofy thing, but it for me, it really works. And like I said, it takes it for me the reward will be, you know, taking my dogs for a walk, going out to the garden. For you, it might be calling a friend playing a video game, having a cup of tea, whatever it is for you. But I find it really helps me when I’m struggling to do some of those things to give myself a reward, offer myself a reward, and then get back to it. And then balance. We all know that we need balance and it’s for some of us, it’s easier than for others. But really take some time for you. You know, it’s important to attend to the needs of your business. And it’s also super critical to schedule me time. Spend time with the people you care most about and do the things that give you joy. I’m a firm believer of doing that I, I play golf every Friday, pretty much every Friday and I play it with my sister. It’s one of the most fabulous things that I do during the week. I get out, I get to some fresh air and I get to spend quality time with someone I love dearly. So spend time with people that you love, and do the things that give you joy, because a burnt out business owner is a poor business owner.

So your business business isn’t just about the numbers and the facts and the figures. It includes creativity, thought and some other less tangible resources. No matter how strong your drive is and how thorough your business plan is. There’s one resource that you don’t have an unlimited source of and you might have forgotten about and that’s time When you’re detailing your path to success, you’ve got to consider your time and where you’re going to spend it. While a business naturally needs a lot of attention, especially a new one, you also have to get in some personal time with your friends and your family and your other loved ones. Without a good work life balance, you risk burning yourself out and succeeding at the expense of your entire personal life. Success may be sweet, but it often takes on a sour note if you’ve got no one left to share it with. So, place some work our limits on your business. Your Business Plan is always a work in progress. And that includes the part covering how many hours you’re going to spend working, set limit of hours per week, and always stick to it. This limit can change over time as the demands of your business fluctuate, but always have that weekly maximum in your mind. If you find yourself constantly going over that amount you made the two make some changes so that you’re not constantly working. Go back to the concept of team that may help you work less and play more. lose those times sapping activities. There are probably some things that you do on a regular basis both at work in your off time, that steal the time from right under your nose, take stock of your daily activities and lose the ones that don’t add any value to your personal life, your career or your business. When you’re not getting anything out of it, you’re simply wasting time that you can’t afford to lose and making your work life balance goals more difficult to reach, look into outsourcing. Any new or small business resources are going to be tight. So outsourcing may seem out of the question. However, the truth is that you probably have one or two weekly errands that eats your time, that could be done by someone else at a very low cost. You can hire someone local to do light light landscaping, to free yourself of those weekend chores, or have your laundry picked up and done and dropped off. Whatever you decide to do, always be ready to pull back when you’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed out by work. If you don’t take care of yourself, there’s simply you simply won’t be around to take care of your business properly.

Next, I want to talk a little bit about the mindset. In addition to the traits demonstrated by successful entrepreneurs, there’s also a mindset that puts all the traits together into a unique way of thinking. entrepreneurs do think differently, which is the the key to what makes them stand apart from most people. The power of consistency and persistence is not only what successful business owners know, it’s what they live by. These two qualities are the cornerstone of any business venture and are absolutely necessary for survival and growth, persistence and consistency are linked. Most people, despite their best efforts just aren’t persistent. Think about it this way. You want to lose a few pounds. So you start going to the gym. After a few months, you lose the weight and you’re feeling so good that you just stopped going. Six months later, the weight is back on and you start the cycle all over again. If that sounds familiar, you’re certainly not alone. Once you’ve eliminated the cause, the effect stopped as well. Had you been persistent, you would have still gone to the gym regularly, despite hitting the initial weight loss goal. While you were regularly going to the gym, you were being consistent. As the weight was off, you stopped being persistent with your workout routine. You can actually have some degree of consistency without persistence. But you can never have persistence without consistency. Let’s say you decide you want to Make a certain amount of money by having your own business. So you develop a written down strategic marketing plan. You market like there’s no tomorrow on a very consistent basis, you hit the ground running and for the first few months, you start to see some results. But let’s face it, building a successful business is hard. And it takes time, always more time than you think. Like I said, I’ve never had a coaching client say to me, things are taking much less time than I thought they would. Results are never as fast as you want them to be. And so you start to pull back on your efforts, and pretty soon you just stopped. I have a friend Sharon lechter. From the Napoleon Hill Foundation, who wrote a book called three feet from gold. Turn your obstacles into opportunities. That explains this phenomenon. People want immediate results and often make the mistake of pulling back their marketing efforts. If things don’t happen fast enough. What’s successful on entrepreneurs and business owners know is that you need the persistence to continue your marketing efforts in full force, even when the results are slow to come. No, actually, especially when the results are slow to come. Persistence is vital to a successful business, and you need consistency to get there. If you don’t market consistently throughout your business, you’ll never hit your earnings goal. And you’ll end up is one of the 50% of new best businesses that fail in the first five years. It can be argued that consistency plus persistence is not the only equation for success in business, but also in personal fulfillment. When you’re consistent and persistent and all that you do, you’ll be able to work more effectively towards all your goals, increasing your chances of success. persistence and consistency are just two of the thought processes that make up the entrepreneur mindset. The mindset is a way of taking all the traits that lead to success. Access and using them every day in your business. It’s taking powerful leadership skills and using them to think differently. It’s taking powerful leadership skills, thinking differently, getting into massive action, and never quitting. Good luck with your business. Good luck with integrating the entrepreneurial traits and the leadership traits that lead to success into your business. Thank you for listening to the breakaway entrepreneur with Janet Fish.
