The first was about 10,000 years ago when the human race transitioned from hunter-gathers to farmers. The second was when the Industrial Revolution kicked off in 1769 as Richard Arkwright built the world’s first true factory in Derbyshire, England. This caused a complete refashioning of the agrarian way of life and England was not recognizable from the nation it was a mere century before.
A key element of the economic revolution is the advancement of technology.
Technology is democratizing knowledge on a scale the world has never seen before. The ability is there for anyone, with little to no capital, anywhere in the world, to started a technology enabled business.
Essentially, all you need is an idea and ambition; and since the global markets are thirsting for innovative products and business models, it is easy to get excited about the possibilities.
It is time to conquer the chaos, retool and reboot your career, and become an entrepreneur.
It is time to be the CEO of your own small business, change the course of your life, and get yourself on the right side of economy history.
Read these 6 strategies to conquer the chaos. Implement the step-by-step guidelines provided in the strategies. Learn to work on your business rather than in your business so you can grow your business without your business consuming you.
Strategy 1. Emotional Capital. When new entrepreneurs get started, they frequently hear that they need to be sure they have the capital and line of credit they need to get the business off the ground. However, emotional capital is far more important than the financial capital. Emotional capital is the foundational mindset that you use every day to wake up every day and fight the battle. It is the passion, enthusiasm, and positive outlook that propel you through your day keeping you driven to achieve your goals.
Strategy 2. Disciplined Optimism. Life is tough however it is how you deal with it that matters. Rather than being blindly optimistic, disciplined optimism is key surviving the chaos and survive it well. The 3 components of disciplined optimism include an underlying belief in your vision, confronting the facts, and having the desire to take action, not just respond to it. Make disciplined optimism an ongoing practice. Pass it on to your employees and customers and you will see a phenomenal difference in the growth and success of your business.
Strategy 3. Entrepreneurial Independence. Rather than seek approval, opinions, and encouragement from those we know and trust, it is best to seek advice and opinions of others. Getting opinions that are different frequently provide a more clear perspective than what you currently have. Being able to obtain and juggle advice and opinions from all these sources and confidently moving forward is the essence of entrepreneurial independence. Those who succeed, and succeed best, are the ones who seek for success inside themselves. Embrace what you are doing and know that you will triumph. Let the world think what it may. You are an entrepreneur and you were born to succeed.
Strategy 4. Centralize. As an entrepreneur, you have an especially complicated situation in terms of keeping up with all the tasks in your personal life as well as run a business. Corporations have hundreds if not thousands of people to do the same job you are doing and trying to accomplish. You are the boss, the sales team, the marketing department, tech support, customer service, and the janitorial staff. You also have reports, records, and financial statements everywhere. As a result, you have got to centralize all that information into one system and one database. When the time is right, centralize, simplify, and clear your mind. Don’t make the mistake of patching the chaos with solutions that create a new chaos or muddy the waters. With centralization comes better clarity, fewer fires, more productivity, and the ability to take control of the chaos.
Strategy 5. Follow-Up. When prospects call you for your product or service, instead of the other way around, you begin to understand the power of follow-up. Once you begin to automate the follow-up process and activities, you will accelerate your business out of chaos. The key elements of success follow-up involve segmenting your prospects into their interests, needs, and level of interest; providing valuable information to educate your prospects on your products or services; be repetitive but not a pest as we all live business lives and need to hear things several times; consistently tell your message but use a variety of channels such as email, text message, voice mail, video, direct mail, and of course live follow-up with the most interested leads. Follow-up does not have to be hard. It does not have to be tricky. But it does need to be done. If you want freedom to focus on more than the immediate sale, then you need to remember the value of your lists, keep an accurate, centralized database, and follow-up on a regular basis.
Strategy 6. Automate. Obtain, learn, and use the right software so your follow-up is an automated masterpiece. Manual operations are a think of the past. Ten years ago they might have been necessary but now there are tools to help you accomplish ten times what you could on your own Technology is the key to helping you achieve liberation from your business. Automation is the result of that technology and the Internet is the facilitator of the Entrepreneurial Revolution. With automation, you will discover ways to simplify your business and significantly increase your revenue.
In summary, you need to be the machine. The workers of the Industrial Revolution era were paid to be cogs in a literal or figurative machine. Today, you and your business ARE the machine. You can be richly rewarded for the creativity and ingenuity that software, by itself, lacks. Don’t duplicate what computers or robotics can do. Add what they can not do and seek to be compensated for it.
By following these strategies that can change the face of business, you can contribute to the world’s economic health.
By understanding the whole truth about being an entrepreneur and understanding the intricacies of thriving and prospering through the inevitable chaos, you will indeed be on the right side of economic history.
