Why an Entrepreneurial Mindset Is Essential for Growth and Happiness

Are you a business owner or an entrepreneur? 

The difference is important. 

An entrepreneur has all the essential business skills of a successful business owner, AND knows that working ON their business— rather than in it— means creating a culture that inspires all team members to trust, contribute, grow, and achieve success. In this blog post, you will learn how to make small, yet necessary, changes to fuel your business growth and happiness like a true entrepreneur.

"The typical business owner tends to play it safe, focusing on day-to-day tasks while entrepreneurs are calculated risk takers. Everyone can tell you the risk. An entrepreneur can see the reward." Mike Myers, CLB Network

While a business owner— especially the owner of a smaller business— operates their own company and handles all the big responsibilities, much of their focus is on the profitability of the business. 

Entrepreneurs on the other hand are calculated risk takers. They possess all the skills of a typical business owner, but they have learned to delegate responsibilities— even significant, risky ones— to their capable and ready employees. They have learned to let go of control of the company and have shifted their focus from profitability to also include its health, customer and employee satisfaction, and growth. These approaches adopted by entrepreneurs are keys to healthy growing companies.
