Are You An Entrepreneur?

by | Oct 6, 2015

Words, and the meanings behind them, are very powerful.  We can actually create our reality with the words that we use to describe it. The words that we use to describe ourselves have a great impact on self-esteem and confidence levels. We can even lift our moods and change attitudes, feelings and energy levels simply by changing the words that we use.

As a small business owner, your level of success is influenced by both the hard work as well as the words that you use to describe yourself and your company. If you want to increase your level of success, it may be time to change your approach to your business by changing the terminology that you use.

Are You a Small Business Owner, or/and Entrepreneur?

When most of us hear the term entrepreneur, we naturally see images in our minds of innovative CEOs that are usually from the tech industry. This is because tech is so well known for its maverick leaders that take their unique skills and passion to create new products that thrill and enthrall all of us.

Examples of these famous entrepreneurs include Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and creator of Facebook; Uber CEO and founder Travis Kalanick; as well as the CEO of  GE Business Innovations, Beth Comstock, who also founded streaming media giant Hulu. While all of these entrepreneurs are now the heads of multi-million dollar corporations whose customers number in the millions, most entrepreneurs actually lead organisations that are much smaller and more modest in size and scope.

Turn Things Around By Claiming Your Power

Just like the well-known entrepreneurs from the tech industry, many small business owners are passionate about their companies and the work that they do. Many are risk takers that go “all in” and put everything on the line to start their companies and then put in long hours to ensure that their operations run smoothly. Even when providing a traditional product or service that is offered by other competitors, most small business owners go to great lengths to exceed their customers’ expectations and earn their loyalty. All of these things are the traits of successful entrepreneurs.

Since you are already doing the work that is associated with being an entrepreneur, why not go ahead and claim the power and respect that goes along with the title? As you take on the mantle, give yourself permission to be inspired by others who claim the name with pride and use it to spur you on to become more rebellious and disruptive in your market. Engage in more trial and error as you push for new developments and create something different and exciting that makes you and your clients happy.

Stop settling and shake things up in your business and your life! As you claim your power, and begin to look at challenges through the lens of an entrepreneur, you will see your business grow and success increase.

I have had many a chat with Sophie on the networking circuit. Sophie has a strong profile and reputation within business circles and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any soho needing direction, support and encouragement. I have a passion for educating small business myself and wholeheartedly support Sophie in her endeavour to actively reduce costs for those who may be unintentionally making uninformed decisions relating to business management. Many business owners are unnecessarily outsourcing tasks which are misdirected or can be achieved inhouse.

I’ve worked with Sophie as a contributor to Confessions of a Mumpreneur – a fantastic book that she dreamt up, edited and produced. Apart from producing fabulous books that help so many others realise their entrepreneurial dreams, Sophie is an astute business person who is making her mark on her own terms. Watch this space – I’m sure we’ll see and hear a lot more from Sophie Andrews in the years to come.

I got to know Sophie through my previous employer where Sophie still handles the bookkeeping side of things. While we worked together I have found Sophie very accurate, punctual and very pleasant to work with. And recommend her highly.

I was recommended to The Accounts Studio at a networking event and have been working with them for the last 2 years. The team have all been very approachable and available – two things essential when it comes to understanding your accounts! I now no longer have the stress every three months of getting my BAS correct and even better I have a clear understanding of where my company is financially! Thanks Sophie and TAS team!
