Three habits of
successful entrepreneurs

Focus on these three key areas and you’ll be able to run a slick business
that positioned for growth – no matter how tough the markets become.

Despite the challenges, few industries show as much promise as transport and logistics in delivering what’s next.

There are as many recipes for start-up success as there are entrepreneurs out there – and although it would be a mistake to assume that one approach can be seamlessly adopted by organisations of all sizes and sectors, certain pillars of entrepreneurship are indispensable, no matter what business you’re in. 

Focus with energy, consistency and intent

It seems basic. After all, being able to focus mental energy is something we are trained to do from early childhood, isn’t it? And yet it’s common to meet entrepreneurs who seem to have lost all ability to do so – considering themselves failures as leaders unless they fill the role of captain, first mate and navigator simultaneously.

There is something powerful about mono-tasking, and I’m not only talking about at the operational level. Focus is the essential sidekick to grit and determination, and with enough of it, not even distraction and defeat can slow you down. Instead they’ll spur you on to new levels of commitment during your most challenging times – just when you need it most.

Maintain a positive, level temperament

Good entrepreneurs are known to break their backs day in and day out, and any failure of their business must be their fault.Here’s the truth: if you have to sacrifice your nights, your health, your relationships and your happiness just to get your work done, you’re not doing it right.

Successful entrepreneurship is about knowing what to devote energy to and when, as well as knowing when to take control and when to relinquish it.

Your staff is the lifeblood of your business, and they should be quality employees that free your time up to be the leader you need to be. As a business owner, it can be tempting to micromanage, but the old adage of “Work on your business, not in it” still rings true today. The big picture is 100% yours, but the daily grind shouldn’t be.Entrepreneurs today face tough competition and truly terrifying odds of success. Being talented and hardworking can only take you so far in a game when every “yes” is preceded by a hundred “no’s.” It is the will to succeed and the determination to never quit that makes all the difference.

What’s the next move?

Rising to the market challenges will take foresight and bold decision making. Have you considered how your business is positioned to address the new opportunuties?

Location. Location. Location.

Putting your business in the right position is a rule of enterprise about as old as commerce itself. Your location positions your business not only as a way of attracting customers, but also to attract the right calibre of skills and talent needed to drive the business forward. Location also lets you create the right brand image for your company. The neighbours you choose will have a significant impact on your operation, as their client base and reputation rub shoulders with your own.

 

Research shows that location is even more important for microentrepreneurs – new companies launching a small scale operation with fewer than nine people. Address strategy is particularly important for businesses of this size because it impacts whether enough revenue will be brought in to take the business to the next level.
