Being a budding entrepreneur is not easy. We share a few ways you could be considered as one of those happy and successful entrepreneurs.
Being a budding entrepreneur is not easy. You need to think about clients, funding, progress of your enterprise and what-not. But the reason you’re there is because you wanted to do something for yourself and be satisfied.
Yet, too often that initial passion is hampered by the realities of running the organization. There are times when you regret the decision, and there is nobody to show you the way. We share a few ways you could be considered as one of those successful entrepreneurs.
You know where did you start from. It will take a more than a little time for your business to get established, the sooner you accept it, the better will it be for you. Focus on why did you start the business and what did you expect of it during the initial days. You cannot have everything on your plate when your business is in its initial stage. Focussing on one thing at a time will not just increase you rate of success, but will also ensure that your business is established sooner than you thought.
2. ‘Smard’ work:
You need to work smart and you need to work hard. In addition to that, if you’re afraid of failing, you’re going to be a miserable entrepreneur. Applicable to any situation in life, is the saying- Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. You’re different from the rest of the lot, which is why you have your own enterprise. While your hard work is sure to show effective results, thinking smart is going to make you contented.
3. Division of responsibilites:
Effective time management is one of the major things an organization focusses on. Division of responsibilites among your employees or coworkers, would not just make things easy for you, but also get it done on time and in a more effective way, than loading just one with all the work.
You may have quit your high paying job to do something that you have the passion for and makes you happy. But when you face too many deadlines and too many people wanting to meet you, you being grouchy does not come as a surprise. Take out time for yourself and do something that makes you happy and creative. At least one day in a week, if not frequently. Go out on holidays and release your employees from their stress by providing them a me-time too.
5. Party for a small achievement:
You may not have bagged the best entrepreneur award, but call for a small celebration, even if your organization achieved something that would bring it to the limelight. That, you won’t be able to reward your employees materialistically is understood, but this success is as much an acheivement for them, as it is for you.
6. Allow flexibility:
Anybody who joins a new enterprise is well aware of the effort he/she will have to put in. Long work hours and travelling to get investors on board are a few to mention. So, allow them to work flexibly. Being a li’l disciplined is fine, but overstepping everytime, may prove harmful for you and the organization.
7. Personal and professional:
Learn to keep your work life away from your personal life. Spend time with family and friends. Live, laugh and create memories, as at the end of the day nobody is going to remember your presentations or clients. Your loved ones are going to be by your side all your life.
Happiness is not overrated in business.
A research shows that people who are happy have a high rate of success, and not the other way round. The research also suggested that when you’re in a good mood, you’re more confident and energetic.
Work as a family, rather than as a corporate and watch success come to you and your people.
