How To Get Where You\'re Going As An Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurialism matters! How to get where you're going as an entrepreneur is by helping people.

Scattered focus

Don't let your focus get scattered. Thinking about too many things will get you lost!

You must focus on doing. And your doing must be doing one main thing at a time.

Multi-tasking doesn't work

Did you accomplish your one thing today? Then celebrate.

That's right! Celebrate. You can do more if you want. Or not.

But if you got one main thing done today? You did well. You deserve to celebrate.

Recognizing your steps toward success online is important. You inspire yourself!

Big stuff

Are you working on big stuff that can't get done in a day? Then do whatever you can today that gets you one step closer to accomplishing it.

Why?

(1) Because when you pour your heart into one thing you can succeed online.

(2) Because when you scatter your energy you're not going to get enough done in any one thing to succeed online.

Helping people

I've got a secret for you! You can measure your future business success.

How? I'll tell you how!

You can measure by who you're helping and how. Right now!

If your answer is that you're not helping anyone? Whoops!

Big mistake. Your measure is a big fat Zero.

You must help people

Whatever you're working on today as an entrepreneur must fit with helping people. And you must do so in ways a definable group of people most value.

Supply and demand

What you offer is called supply. What people want is called demand.

That's the basics. That's how business works.

Fancy words include supplying demand! That's where you figure out what people most want and give it to them!

Free gift

With the rise of the Internet, that's become literal."Give it to them!"

Like taste spoons in ice cream shops! Give a taste. Free!

Your bonus

Your bonus is hidden in plain sight. Feedback!

You get to know what people want.

Entrepreneurialism can be overwhelming

Being an entrepreneur can become overwhelming at times. I know my journey feels like it's included a bumper crop of bumps.

Focus on right now

Surprisingly, making a million dollars as an entrepreneur can be worse for you than going broke. More painful, too.

After all, when you make a million dollars you're more attractive to the wrong kinds of people. You get hurt.

Focus on right now! Recognize that how to get where you're going as an entrepreneur is a process of effort over time.

That process requires focusing on here and now. That's how to get where you're going as an entrepreneur!m

I enjoyed reading this article because it confirmed something I kind of (sort of) knew but wasn't sure about. I'm a "baby" entrepreneur so all the "bright, shiny toys" available are alluring to me. If I don't stay focused on one thing, I become distracted easily. Good work, Cynthia, and thanks for sharing this info!
