You're an entrepreneur, or at least a budding one. You may have read the books on the attributes of successful entrepreneurs and either try to emulate them or wonder if you'll ever be successful because you are so different.
The thing is, those typical attributes of successful entrepreneurs refer to traditional entrepreneurs from a world very different to the modern one we live in now, and their definition of success is probably quite different to yours.
The world is changing. The way we do business is changing. The opportunities for people who are not traditional to create their own way of working, to create their own businesses, are expanding.
In fact the world is crying out for the personal touch, the personal experience. We're done with with mass market appeal. We're done with being treated like sheep and having to fit our desires into the norm, and we'll often pay more for a service or product if we can have it just the way we want it.
This gives you the opportunity to bring your unique style into your business, to satisfy a market that responds to your personal take on what they are buying.
For instance, you may be an accountant. Lots of people need the support of an accountant; some want an anonymous accountant who just gets the numbers crunched so they don't have to think about them; others want an accountant who is great at making their numbers and related systems simple for them to understand and manage; yet others want an accountant who also feels like a friend, someone they can really talk to and be vulnerable with around their financial inadequacies or fears; and so on.
No matter what service you provide the options of how you do it and thus differentiate yourself from the norm, which is now desirable, are numerous.
One of the best ways to differentiate yourself, and thus make your product or service more desirable in this modern market of individualists, is to embrace your unique entrepreneurial personality.
Your entrepreneurial personality starts with YOU, who you really are when you shrug off the rules you play by to fit in, to try to be accepted and liked. What this world needs is YOU, untarnished by the conditioning of your family, your community, your school, your society or the television rhetoric. There is no other YOU in the world, just like Oprah is the one and only Oprah. Imagine if Oprah had decided to fit in with what was expected of her, be the dutiful good girl... all those people who feel she has made such a difference in their lives, where would they be if she'd just gone along with fitting in?
Who is missing out because you're trying to do things the way that is expected or you, or the way you think you should do things or the way someone else has told you is the right way to do whatever it is that you want to do?
Your entrepreneurial personality is the part of you that does things the way you love to do them; it is the way you express your 'get up and go', the way you do things. It is what you tend to focus on, the way your mind works. It's your style.
I'm going to be delving more deeply into your entrepreneurial personality, getting specific about the different types of entrepreneurial personalities and how they relate to you personally at The Essex Business Women's Experience on 16th June 2017.
Come and find me at 11am. I'll be running a 45 minute master class entitled "Discover Your Entrepreneurial Personality From Your Fingerprints". Bring your magnifying glass along. You will love it!
