“Entrepreneurship is neither a science nor an art, it’s a practice”
Right now, you are at the start of a journey to create or grow your online business. You have invested your hard earned money in this journey, and you will be investing much of your time over the next 4 weeks. I want you to get as much as you possibly can from this course in exchange.
I have spent the past few months writing this course content, which contains every single piece of advice that I have from my experience growing my own business and talking to other successful entrepreneurs. I have prepared this course to ensure that everyone who completes it has the knowledge and skills to grow a successful online business.
The only thing that can stand between you and your success is your mindset. If you adopt the entrepreneur mindset and give 100% to this course, then you will have all of the tools you need to succeed.
What is the Entrepreneur Mindset?
The entrepreneur mindset is the key to creating your successful business. It’s a combination of confidence, focus, determination, self belief, and ingenuity that will set you on a path to success. This mindset is what will push you through the course when it gets difficult and help you to keep pushing your business forward after the course ends.
If you want to be an entrepreneur – you have to think like one, and act like one.
An entrepreneur doesn’t stop at 100%
Entrepreneurs don’t just do what’s expected of them, they do more.
While other people stop when they have done what has been asked, Entrepreneurs keep going and look for opportunities to do better or do more. Each time you are given a task on this course, go beyond 100%. Take the knowledge you have learned from the task, and see how you can use that to improve your business.
An entrepreneur doesn’t wait to be told what to do
Employees do what they are asked. Entrepreneurs do what needs to be done.
I’m going to be here to guide you through this course every step of the way, but if you have your own ideas then come to me and we can see how to make them happen. You are the driver of your career, and I’m here to ensure you stay on course and have all the tools you need to get where you want to be.
An entrepreneur doesn’t need to follow someone else’s path
Entrepreneurs don’t worry whether something has been done before, they forge their own path.
Just because something hasn’t been done before, doesn’t mean that it can’t be a success. When I launched my saving plan, I didn’t know anyone who had successfully marketed a spreadsheet like this before. But I sold over 4 thousand of them and made just shy of €20,000. I knew I had something that helped me, and I felt that it could help other people – so I went with my intuition and turned it into a successful product.
An entrepreneur is adaptable and open to change
Entrepreneurs understand that not every idea will make for a successful product. They are ready to make a change if something is not working.
I hope that you will be more inspired during this course than ever before, and with that inspiration will come a lot of ideas for your business. Some – or maybe just one – of these ideas could be your big earner, the thing that turns you into a bonafide success. Some of them won’t, and that’s ok – you just need to be willing to adapt. If something truly isn’t working, be willing to drop it and move on.
An entrepreneur prioritises their time
Entrepreneurs understand that their time is valuable, and don’t waste it on unnecessary tasks.
If you are stuck at any point during this course, message me and I will help you figure out how to get unstuck – so that you don’t waste valuable time you could be spending growing your business. Never be afraid to seek help from people who know more than you do.
An entrepreneur stays focused on their goals
Entrepreneurs set goals and targets for their business, and focus on reaching them. Every decision they make fits with these goals, and they are constantly striving to reach the next milestone.
I want you to go back through your goals in your business plan and see if you are happy with them. Are they detailed enough? Are they too easily achievable? Can you aim higher? Do these goals truly represent what you want from your life and your business in the next 6 months to 5 years time?
An entrepreneur listens to their customers, even when they’re not speaking
Entrepreneurs pay attention to their customers and know what their customers want – even before they know themselves.
Do you get more clicks on posts about a particular subject? Consider writing an ebook about this and selling it on your site. Do you get higher page views on a Monday? Launch any new products on a Monday. Are you putting effort into one area of your site, while another area is getting more readership? Switch your focus to the areas of your site that people are looking at.
Constantly look at your analytics, your click through rates, and comments or emails from your customers to gauge what they want to see next. Don’t wait for your customers to tell you.
Are you ready to adopt the entrepreneur mindset and reach your goals?
I want you to go through this week’s tasks with this new mindset. How would an entrepreneur approach each week? Would they do all of their tasks by the time the next weekly call rolls around, and then consider that to be enough?
No. They would finish their tasks early, and spend the rest of the week using what they have learned to improve their business plan, work on their business strategy, and start brainstorming how they can make their business even better.
I want you to think of yourself like an entrepreneur, and start acting like one.
