business scheduleThe best leaders and most successful entrepreneurs in the world have learned how to maximize every moment of their time. It’s crucial that the busiest people in the business have the most structured agendas. With proper scheduling one can not only keep track of every meeting and deadline, but also limit their amount of stress.

 
Schedule THESE four things into each day to maximize both the productivity of your business and also foster creative thought and innovation of the future.
 
1) Get Physical:
Exercise not only keeps your body healthy but it releases endorphins which make your brain more alert, focused, and creative. Schedule your workouts just as you would another meeting for your business startup, they are that important. Having this time reserved for sweating makes you far less likely to blow it off. Come back to business recharged and energized to plow through the rest of your daily to-do list!
 
2) Set Creative Time: Think of working your creative muscle just as you do the rest of your muscles. Creativity can’t be forced but it can be nurtured and improved upon; though, it requires that you regularly set aside time to do something creative. Reserve 15-30 minutes doing something creative each day: drawing/art, writing, acting, problem-solving (puzzles), playing music, reading (true reading, not emails!), etc. This ensures you don’t ‘lose touch’ with your creative fire and will keep your brain sharp and able to pump out those innovative ideas.
 
3) Check Goals Daily: The most effective business startup leaders take time each day to check in with their goals, both short term and long term. Analyze how close you are to hitting those goals and then strategize how you will continue down the right track. Be sure your entire business startup team are working towards the SAME goals and that they have a clear method on how to continue execution. Properly communicating your goals is IMPERATIVE.
 
4) Get Feedback: Leaders thrive on feedback and constructive criticism as both will make you and your business startup stronger. Ask both your workers and your customers for their thoughts and truly LISTEN and engage in each conversation. Actively listening shows the speaker you care and are invested in hearing their opinion, making them more relaxed and thus willing to spend the energy and time to put true thought in the answers they’re giving you.
 
Schedule these four appointments TODAY, it will boost your own personal productivity as well as that of your business startup!

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailThere are five areas in which it’s critical a young entrepreneur be continually improving in. How well your business startup is able to perform is directly related.
 
1) Confidence: Self confidence is an interesting thing, far too often the people with the MOST to offer undervalue themselves. Why the insecurity, Young Entrepreneur? Typically it’s because the type-A personality trait has such high standards. Clearly a good thing in driving you forward but at the same time, don’t let that type-A work against you.
 
REALIZE your value. Don’t undersell yourself or your business startup. Get a more realistic perspective on just how great you are by looking at all levels of your competition. Another example of a type-A stumbling block is only focusing on the ones better than you. Gain confidence and know that you ARE worth XXXX cost, know your value and keep improving on it.
 
2) Passion: Let passion drive you, use logic to keep you on track and focused. A young entrepreneur with a business startup should be pursuing their passion. Though, with creativity sometimes come ‘too’ many ideas can become a distraction. While there’s never such a thing as ‘too’ many ideas, we will clarify: getting off track and bouncing to the next idea before fully investing in the first.
 
Don’t let the excitement of an idea overflow distract you from accomplishing what you set out to do. Make a list to track your creative genius:
* ACTION: This category for the projects you need to be focused on right now and complete first.
* SUPPLEMENT: These ideas tend to be marketing related as ways to boost the effectivity of your action ideas. These can be done synonymously.
* LONG TERM: As the name implies.
* ONE DAY: For the items that fall under ‘there’s never a bad idea’.
 
3) Brevity: For efficiency purposes and the ability to hook potential clients/investors/connections on the fly, a young entrepreneur needs to master brevity. Our post HERE explains how to construct the perfect ‘elevator pitch’ to be used any time someone asks, “What do you do?”
 
Don’t lose your audience’s attention by rattling on or having a less than crystal clear answer. For productivity purposes, learn to fire off those emails and make your communications more effective by getting RIGHT to the point.
 
4) Cold Call: A young entrepreneur needs to have the confidence to pick up the phone (or email) and reach out. Connections are helpful but you can’t wait for them either, many incredibly profitable and long term relationships stem from a ‘cold’ introduction.
 
5) Network: With a business startup you can never have too many connections. It’s important to keep the old, build new, and nurture those relationships. Remember with connections it’s a two way street, don’t only get in touch with a person when YOU need something, make sure to check in with even a simple two or three sentence email with no ulterior motive.
 
Remember to help another person out if you have the means, and don’t always expect an immediate return. Selfless acts don’t go unnoticed and will be remembered. Worst case, a young entrepreneur can use all the positive karma they can take.
 
There you go. Five areas that a young entrepreneur should be continually improving upon. Pick one to work on TODAY!

stressed business womanStress and business are like a dancing couple. Completely intertwined and no matter how fast the beat moves the two must keep up. For a young entrepreneur with a business startup, take the ‘normal’ amount of stress and exponentially quantify it. Start stepping fast, My Friend!
 
The problem with an exponential amount of stress is there’s a very fine line between keeping pace with your business startup and leaving you a crying puddle of goo hunkered in the corner. Stress and anxiety are making us sick, killing us even. Outside of the heart attacks, panic episodes, and more extreme situations, too much stress wrecks havoc in all other areas of your life.
 
* problems sleeping
* excessive fatigue
* concentration problems
* unhappiness and depression
* reduced energy resulting in less activity/exercise and reduced ability to perform and function during exercise
* addiction problem
 
Not to mention it sure as heck can do a number on the young entrepreneur, their family, friends, and pets. Too much stress certainly is a killjoy.
 
Limiting Stress

 
Unfortunately we’ve already established that the presence of stress and a business startup are intertwined. The amount of stress and anxiety an individual experiences fluctuates too. A few days of through the ROOF, we’ve got to hit this deadline type situations aren’t going to kill you IF you’re able to give your body a chance to recover between such situations. The hamster must get off the wheel to recharge at some point.
 
Of this we know and have heard. But there are other ways a young entrepreneur can reduce the amount of stress and anxiety they feel by changing their OWN perspective.
 
Yes, a lot of the stress and pressure we may be feeling is self-imposed. By shifting our OWN reaction and attitude toward stressful situations we can dramatically reduce the negative impact they have on ourselves, our health, and even our business startup.
 
Shifting Perspective
 
1) Identify.
Pinpoint why are you feeling stressed, anxious, and pressure. Now determine if you have any control over the situation.
2) Action. Make a list of every way you CAN make an impact on the situation to make it better for you. Do all you can to set yourself up for success.
3) Let go. Once you’ve done everything within your power, it’s time to disengage, distract, and shift your thoughts, time, energy, and emotions elsewhere to something you DO have control over.
 
Clearly letting go is much easier said that done, Young Entrepreneur. But once you’ve done everything you can, you can’t sit and stew cursing that the shipment from Australia, wishing it were at your feet rather than in the middle of the ocean. SHIFT that energy into a way that is productive for your business startup. That may mean calling customers, apologizing, and using other customer service techniques to keep their business.
 
Another large way a young entrepreneur can reduce the amount of stress they feel is by improving their conversational and communication skills. Many GIANT problems stem from a lack of proper communication or avoiding it all together. Confrontations are part of life and shouldn’t be feared; if you clearly express what you need, know what is expected of you, things tend to smooth along much easier.
 
A young entrepreneur can never ditch their tango partner of stress, they CAN however ensure their own feet are able to keep pace with the music and successfully run their business startup without turning into that crying pile of goo in the corner.

speaking with wordsPeople talk all the time; well, when they’re not texting that is. For an entrepreneur with a business startup, having exceptional speaking skills is a must. It’s important to master the different kinds of ways business professionals, and people in general, engage and interact through speech.
 
* Public Speaking: Many business startup entrepreneurs have learned to overcome their fear of speaking in public; it’s a necessity. Read our post filled with tips on overcoming that fear HERE and remember the key is to come off: confident, prepared, and informed on the topic. A lot of that comes from practice, practice, practice.
 
* Business Meetings: Language you use in business meetings can be similar to that of speaking in public: professional and informed. The difference is, you also want to exude a level of receptivity. If someone questions why you’re doing something a certain way, DO NOT get defensive. Be open to feedback and constructive criticism (it will only make you and your business startup better) and even in response to the harshest of criticism, “I appreciate your point of view, that’s something to consider.”
 
* Creative Brainstorming: No idea is too crazy to toss out there. Have you seen some of the business startup campaigns on Kickstarter lately? And they’re getting fully funded. In brainstorming it’s important to let everyone present feel COMFORTABLE speaking up and sharing. Do that by ensuring that the words you use as a young entrepreneur create an environment that’s not overly critical or judgmental. Even if the idea is off the wall, write it down (it’s only brainstorming after all) and be sure your group knows they should keep those ideas coming!
 
* ‘Small Talk’: An entrepreneur who downplays the importance of small talk is unwise. Think it’s a waste of time chatting about the weather? Well it depends on WHO you’re chatting with. Connections and relationships rule the business startup world, the only way to make those connections is to MEET people.
 
Turn a connection into a relationship by learning about the person on the other end of that conversation. Create a personal connection and you’re much more likely to find an alley for your business startup. If you find it hard to small talk, remember that a large part of it is LISTENING. Let the other person open up, start sharing, and you’d be surprised what you can learn. Remember those details and you can keep a relationship strong by following-up later with the person and asking how things are going…mention that little detail and you’ll have etched a lasting memory for them.
 
Even in our technologically obsessed times, a young entrepreneur needs to remember that there is GREAT power in the voice. Outside of touch (which can be a little too familiar in a business setting!) it’s the first and most intimate ways humans interact. Master how to use that voice, form connections, and your business startup will thrive.

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailWhen in doubt, look to those ahead of you. A young entrepreneur on their business startup journey has no shortage of successful business mentors and individuals to look to for motivation, inspiration, and strategy. Building a business startup takes plenty of ‘nose to the grindstone’ kind of work…but never forget to keep looking up to those ahead of you. Then, pounce on their words of wisdom.
 
Business is Never Easy-Peasy: Being a young entrepreneur and getting a business startup off the ground is hardly easy. The hard work is well worth it, and with persistence and proper business management skills, a young entrepreneur can reach vast levels of success. Though with that success, do things necessarily get easier? In a word, “No.”
 
Getting bigger doesn’t mean it gets easier. The goals for your business startup just get higher, a young entrepreneur’s objectives changes and the obstacles do too. The same amount of hard work and dedication that makes your business startup a success will be the same traits that keep that business alive. It’s important that, with dreams of running their own business, a young entrepreneur not fool themselves into believing that once they hit XXX goal, the clouds will part, harp music will fill the air, and everything going forward will be a cake walk.
 
Marathoners Make Business Leaders: Taking a business startup from idea to Global powerhouse is certainly an enticing goal for any young entrepreneur. Ironically, looking TOO far forward and TOO expansive right away can stop your business startup from even surviving at all. Launching a business startup needs to be viewed as an endurance event, focus on the mile at hand, not what’s 1,000 miles ahead.
 
A young entrepreneur needs to remember that a narrowed focus pays off, identify and really hone your business startup niche market. The narrower your make your niche market the better you can focus on and get to KNOW your customers. This enables your business startup to better meet heir needs. Gain their following, then as you grow and are certain you have the resources to, expand. You’re only fully prepared for that if you can still diligently meet the needs of all your current customers.
 
And the King Must Delegate: The power of delegation is fierce for the young entrepreneur with a business startup. Realize you don’t know everything; don’t let an inability to admit you’re not the best at every task get in the way of ensuring only the best quality and creative goes into your business startup. A young entrepreneur must recognize when they are working over their head and seek out someone else who can do that particular task better.
 
As a young entrepreneur enlists the help of another, there is the opportunity to learn from that person and thus widen their own skill set. Though, the power of delegation is even more important as your business startup grows. In that regard, there may be certain skills that you do not need to spend your time and energy learning. Delegate to grow, but you can’t grow if you can’t delegate first.
 
Every Business Startup is an Ecosystem: The environment a young entrepreneur makes for their business startup needs to be nurtured and fostered with care. No amount of qualifications or text resumes alone can predict how well a business startup team or individual will be able to produce and function in the real-world environment. Thus, it’s imperative (and part of being a success leader) that a young entrepreneur truly invest in getting to know and UNDERSTAND each of their business startup team members.
 
A young entrepreneur acting as a business startup leaders must ensure the dynamics are conducive to success. Add to your team with caution because, more than just qualifications, you need to make sure the social environment of your business startup is healthy. Work can’t go forward if without a powerful group dynamic.

rockstar bonoWant your business startup to skyrocket to the top? Well, Young Entrepreneur, that comes from passion and drive…and not ONLY coming from you. Just as important, the employees and everyone working towards that business startup success, is just as motivated and dedicated to the cause.
 
How does that happen? Well, it takes the power of being a rockstar leader.

 
1) Lead by Passion, Make it Infectious: Rule number one for any young entrepreneur is to build a business startup around something they are passionate about. The same goes for the employees of your business startup; make sure the scope of their job plays to their strengths and passions. Certainly, especially for a new business when there may not be many people, roles will be doubled/tripled/quadrupled up. But, a true leader delegates tasks so that each employee will feel a bit buzzed. Remember that atmosphere of excited energy starts with making sure you, the young entrepreneur, are fully charged. Lead by example
 
2) Clear Goals and Expectations: Every expert, go-getting, successful young entrepreneur works under the law of concrete goals. The same for a powerful leader, but they take it even further, ensuring that each and every one of their business startup employees know EXACTLY:
* What their individual and business startup team goals are.
* Where they currently stand. How is their progress?
* What they need to do to stay on track and moving forward. A leader will be EXPLICITLY clear what those benchmark goals are. (ie: Do XYZ by 123.)
 
3) Be Connected: A successful young entrepreneur acting as business startup leader should be available. So much so that you know the strengths of each person as well as the best way to approach and connect with them. Are they an introvert, extrovert, social butterfly, respond well to humor? By finding out what method they respond to best you will be able to approach them in a way that is most conducive to getting the job done right. In order to do that a young entrepreneur must have a connection with each person. Great leaders are intuitive, they know how others will react under given circumstances. Leading innovation and being a young entrepreneur is about predicting the future, a great leader should also have powers to look into the future.
 
4) Open-mindedness: When a young entrepreneur has meetings and creative brainstorming sessions for their business startup, they act as speaker just as much as listener. Make your employees comfortable enough to speak up and share their thoughts and ideas. More importantly, make them feel HEARD. No one person knows everything, it takes a better leader to understand that and be excited to hear other peoples’ thoughts, expertise, and ideas.
 
5) Be Genuine: Just as in building your business startup brand, a rockstar leader is transparent. What you see is what you get; your customers respect honesty and this goes tri-fold for your employees. How can you expect something from them if you’re not willing to be genuine yourself? Admit if you’re made a mistake, express if there are certain struggles with your business startup, and be forthright with what is needed to get back on track. On the flip side, you should reward POSITIVES in both individuals and the overall team. Never underestimate the power of looking directly at one of your employees and saying, “You did a really great job with this, thank you.” Being genuine is powerful.
 
Leadership qualities may be inborn, but the power of true, successful business startup leadership is a skill every young entrepreneur must continue to hone.

fair businessMore and more often the ‘nice’ young entrepreneur is winning out. Business startups that create a high level of transparency with customers, acting more AS the people, and relying on marketing tactics that speak WITH the customer rather than at them, are proving more successful.
 
Why? The impact of social media has stretched far and wide, effective leadership and business practices included. The customers for your business startup are highly more responsive, and stay loyal to, a brand they feel they can communicate with. A young entrepreneur can beat out bigger business competition by listening to the demands of their customers and merely being ‘fair’.
 
Fairness, what is that? The Harvard Business Review has an interesting article on fairness and what is perceived as fair. In business and the world of business startups, the perception of what is fair isn’t concrete and is, after all, open to interpretation and to a degree malleable. How can a young entrepreneur build a brand that acts ‘fairly’?
 
1) Honesty: What the article pointed out was that customers can slap the ‘unfair’ title on a business just because they don’t understand something, namely a price increase. If a young entrepreneur and their business startup wants to avoid turning their customers sour, try the ‘simple’ truth. If a business startup explains the reason for their actions, they are more likely to retain their customers’ loyalty. Don’t lose customers because of a misunderstanding, be genuine and transparent with your actions, ambiguity alone can look shifty.
 
2) Quality: By nature, humans don’t respond happily when things don’t go their way, for example when a business startup must raise their prices. The immediate reaction for a customer is, “Bummer.” After that things can go one of two ways, if there is acceptable reasoning for the ‘loss’ on the customers’ part their thought can become, “Bummer…oh, well, I’m still buying it.” An ‘acceptable’ reason includes an increase in quality from the business startup to go with that higher price. As our post on pricing your product and services explained, price and the perception of quality are interlinked.
 
3) Communication: When a young entrepreneur engages with the customers for their business startup they are building a brand with a persona of being reachable. To win ‘fairness points’ a business startup needs to responds and be receptive to the good AND the bad things their customers have to say. A young entrepreneur shouldn’t ignore poor customer feedback, reviews, or comments; rather, their business startup needs to demonstrate that they have noted the feedback and will take action. If a customer complains they never got their shipped package: apologize publicly and promise to send a new one post-haste. Makes the customer happy AND shows your other customers that you’re a brand that ‘has their back’…that seems fair, right? 😉 [Read post on how to use negative feedback to your advantage and keep your customers.]
 
Fairness may be open to interpretation; but, the customers for your business startup are far more likely to deem you as a brand that is fair if you’re honest, have high quality standards, and are communicative. Human nature is to reward those who are fair and react with scorn to those who are unfair; scorn in the world of business startups means a loss of customers.

Our last post was all about the business social changeyoung entrepreneur and the distinguishing traits of exceptional leadership skills for their business startup. Business leadership is no small subject and one that will make or break a young entrepreneur, so let’s delve even deeper into the evolving strategies of successful business leadership.


As previously noted, a young entrepreneur acting as leader for their business startup must be: a motivator, delegator, facilitator, and be highly attuned to the individualism of their business team. What’s interesting about business leadership is that’s it is not a stagnated science; just as companies grow, societies change, and the ENVIRONMENT of your business startup evolves, so does effective leadership.


Author and social strategist, John Gerzema, has tuned into key social changes and finds how it applies to business. He’s noted that in today’s times a young entrepreneur will be a more effective leader if they act WITH the people, rather than holding themselves above them. “The masculine command-and-control model is becoming increasingly out of place in our very social, interdependent, and transparent world,” explains Gerzema.


Working as a leadership consultant, Gerzema, emphasizes to young entreprneurs the importance of facilitating rather than dictating. “Leaders and managers who possess that kind of candor have the ability to lift people up so that everyone’s voice can be heard.” When applied to a business startup, a young entrepreneur who proves to be receptive to a diverse number of ideas only improves their chances of hitting on the one that proves most successful, even revolutionary. Make your business startup team comfortable and secure enough to speak up.


As a leader of a business startup, a young entrepreneur has to be secure themselves. They must be confident in their own abilities but REALISTIC enough to know they don’t know everything. A young entrepreneur can’t let their own ego get in the way of their business startup by being too stubborn to admit when THEY need help or a consultation. “There’d be more progress if we were better at admitting what we don’t know in the first place,” states Gerzema.


A young entrepreneur who is open to as much feedback, knowledge, advice, and help from their peers, business startup team, and other business connections will, in the end, be improving themselves AND their business. It is not a sign of weakness, but rather, of confidence. Adds Gerzema, “When you ask for help, people align themselves with your needs and come to your aid, which saves both time and money.”


Allowing oneself to prove human is also a vital asset for a young entrepreneur leading their business startup. “Empathy is innovation, and sensitivity to others is a huge catalyst for creativity,” shares Gerzema. Doing so is part of making one’s business startup team feel safe enough to share their ideas, no matter how ‘crazy’ they may be; this traces right back to a young entrepreneur’s need to be receptive, rather than acting dictator.


Being human is also going to put a young entrepreneur closer to the market of their business startup. “People who are really devout themselves in studying the human condition often uncover important underserved markets,” explains Gerzema. This pays off dividends in learning how to effectively brand, market, and reach the very people your business startup intends to connect with.


A young entrepreneur leading WITH the people will come out on top.

A young entrepreneur with a business startup must expertly step into a variety of roles:successful business leader visionary, marketer, budget manager, problem-solver, and leader, just to name a few. But let’s look closer at that last one; to be a successful young entrepreneur one must be the kind of leader that spurs action in others, makes them BELIEVE in you, your business startup, and ultimately themselves.


The best leaders are the ones that gain a following not abrasively but seemingly quite naturally. As in the people who come to work for you feel drawn to you, they WANT to be there. A young entrepreneur will find that filling the role of a leader is much more than thinking solely of the mechanics, or logistics, of their business startup. Just as much they need to think how their EMPLOYEES function as people first and then workers.


* Motivator: A leader is first a motivator. Any young entrepreneur will tell you that making their business startup a success is hard. There will be trying times, points where goals feel unreachable, moments that are scary, when you’re tempted to give in and give up. When you become an entrepreneur, those working with you will feel all of these emotions; stepping into the role of a leader means being able to rally their spirits during these tough times, keep them inspired and motivated…MAKING them believe in the business startup and their own capabilities.


* Delegator: As a leader, a young entrepreneur must be attuned to the strengths of everyone in the group, this includes themselves. Being a leader does NOT mean taking on every task; but rather, being smart enough to know WHO should take on each task because that individual is most capable of doing it to precision.


* Facilitator: A business startup comes with too many stressors to count; all that stress inevitably brings about tension and at times there will be conflict. A young entrepreneur acting as a successful leader is able to step in and facilitate when conflicts arise. Even better, a proactive leader will do all they can to avoid conflict in the first place by knowing the personalities of each member in their business startup team and matching compatible members together on projects. This ties into the role of delegator for a young entrepreneur.


* Attuned to individualism: Every young entrepreneur is different, each member of their business startup team will also be unique. As the leader you don’t ‘lead’ each person the same; everyone connects and responds differently depending on their personality, their previous experiences, and their learning styles. The leader of a successful business startup manages per the individual so as best to inspire and motivate them, to gain their trust, and ultimately their respect.


The key for a young entrepreneur in leading a successful business startup is not making if feel forced. The most effective way to gain a following is to be genuine in what you say and do; do that, and your business startup team will feel pulled to you and willing to FIGHT just as hard as you for overall success.
