The author of this article, Michael E. gerber, has managed to touch one of the core principles that seperate the entrepreneurs from the other business owners.
Lets not go around the bush here, THE VISION is what will make an emerging business to a successful start up, but in order to achieve the big goal you must have one in mind.
Many small business owners didn’t think small when they began running their own shit, they thought they would conquer the world with their innovative thinking and revolutionary ideas, myself included, but what all of us missed is the need for vision in our business models.
In order to go far, you have to know where to steer at all times, this allows you to overcome small setbacks, to take the neccesary risks and to bring all of your sorrounding into believing that you are more than a dreamer, you are a doer.
Someone smart once tought me that the difference between a manager and an entreprenuer is that the latter don’t take no for an answer. when the manager gets a negtive response he will go and continue to work harder in order to get better, for the etreperneur this is nothing but noise, he sees the whole picture, he knows how it all comes together and he is certain in his way to get there.
Don’t get me wrong, targets change and new goals are set as on the go, but the VISION is always the same.
Go and start your journey, just be sure that you know where you are going at all times.
Good luck, and tell me how it works for you.
