The Making of an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurship, a global word on the lips of almost evrybody has become what people say more than do. Being a venture into a relatively new line of value creation, entrepreneurship is what people must give a shot at. Value created by entrepreneurs compensate for their effort when people come to see the essence of their effor. This text is meant to address the making of an entrepreneurs. The word “poor was once defined by a friend, Adams Olalekan as Passing Over Opportunities Repeatedly. Being poor have been identified to be the making of some people as a result of passing over arrays of opportunities without making concerted effort at exploring it. For an entrepreneur to be made, the followings has to be or put in place;

Seek for Opportunities: Enterpreneurs are not 7 to 4 people that are interested in paper pushing. Widening their horizon to seeking for opportunities is their main attribute. As long as problem exists everywhere and solving them is to be done by man, an entrepreneur then emerges in the picture. He sees that opportunities lies in problem. Solution sought and made available meant seeking for opportunity and making good use of opportunity.

Add Value to Opportunities: To be compensated for effort made by an entrepreneur on any opportunity, value must have been added to such opportunity. Value added determines how your effort is perceived in the eyes of the prospective customer. Would he be willing to pay for your effort or it will be outrightly rejected is determined by the worth of value added.

Sustain your Effort by not Relenting: There is always a period of downturn for every venture, either in business or otherwise. This period of downturn will definitely discourage and sway entrepreneurs but only the dogged and swahbuckling entrepreneurs can sustain the tempo. Entrepreneurs must be ambidexterous in action when the chips are down.

Focus on the Customers: having ones focus on the customers shows that an entrepreneur is set to render customer value based oriented services. After the specification of customers needs must have been known, a good entrepreneur will proceed to making such available to the delight of the customers. He will ensure that customers are made the number one priority.

Treat Customers as Kings: Being in business is likened to being under the command of a king. He dictates what he wants as the case may be and expects his request to be met with immediate celerity. A king’s order must be given optimum priority and taken with a touch of meeting specified needs. With this in mind, customers will feel important, feel comfortable to do business with you and onwardly make recommendations to their fellows of your royal treatment.

Create Competitive Advantage: Uniqueness in style and touch have made some businesses to record astronomical rise in sales, making them to be toast of many where other in their mould of business are not considered. Competitive advantage will definitely position an entrepreneurs as a no push over business person. There must be something(s) customers must look out for in your products as far as your line of bvusiness is concerned.
