Hi guys! I hope you’re doing awesome.
A business owner is a leader. Do you believe this? I sure do. That’s why my online ventures are insanely successful. I don’t only own a company, I lead it. As one, I make it my responsibility to grow my biz. I take care of those under my wing the way I do my family. I propel it to higher ground through sound business strategies and right principles.
What does it take to be a leader? In my experience, it’s really two things: foresight and the ability to delegate. When I say foresight, I mean exactly that. It’s the ability to predict what’s going to happen even before others do. That’s why I became a businessman in the first place. I possess an ability (and I’m sure you do too) to “see” something before it happens. I’m able to look at my statistics once and right off the bat, see that a strategy I use is not working as it should, and that my business is better off if I employ something else. This foresight is not the same foresight of psychic fame. It’s educated foresight, something that’s based on concrete information, data and observation.
The ability to delegate is another trait of a leader. What does this mean? It’s knowing my priorities and then deciding that others could do the more routinary things for me. It’s realizing when I need to outsource so I can focus on the really important stuff, like thinking of ways to leverage my biz. It also means delegating the things I know I can’t do, and be humble enough to admit that I do not know everything. It’s realizing that there are certain things that others will always be able to do better than me, and delegating that responsibility to them so my business can grow. It’s asking the help of people when it all becomes too overwhelming.
If you really want to succeed in your business venture, you’ve got to understand that ownership is also leadership. You’re not a leader if all you do is finance a venture and leave the operations to a manager. Real business success can only come if you become more than an entrepreneur. It comes when you become a leader.
Own your business. Lead it. That’s the only way to make it succeed.
To YOUR Success,
