Biggest Mistake Entrepreneurs Make

Posted: 11-Sep-2013    Category: Business, Video

Being an entrepreneur is exciting. The challenges are exhilarating. The experiences are unique. Entrepreneurs are a distinctive type of person with a go-get-em attitude that is hard to otherwise replicate.

However, even with all their strengths, entrepreneurs are prone to some devastating mistakes. Because they want to do it themselves in business, too many try to do everything themselves.

What does that mean? It means just because you’re building a business from the ground up doesn’t mean that you should be doing every aspect of the business. That’s the quickest way to burn out and to let things fall through the crack.

  1. Define your niche. Know what you’re good at in business, and stick to that. No matter what it may be, that should always be your focus. No one should be doing more than two to three things in their business.
  2. Delegate. Most of your time should be spent on your strengths. For the rest, find other talented people to fulfill those roles. Then every part of your business is being attended to by people who are doing their best work at all times.
  3. Drive. Just remember, you drive your business. You don’t do all your business. As an entrepreneur, you are in charge of setting the tone and providing direction. You are not in charge of doing every task.

Being an entrepreneur is hard enough. Do not make it harder for yourself by trying to do everything.
