Challenging ALL Entrepreneurs. As entrepreneurs, we have the opportunity to really change things, to make a difference in a positive and significant way.
We spend a lot of time thinking about how we can be better leaders in our businesses and that’s very important.
As an entrepreneur, you have the opportunity to make a significant impact on how things could change and grow within your environment.
Now, I’m not necessarily talking about running for mayor, city council, or the county commission. However, you can get more involved within your community and become a better leader.
Here are some ideas:
- Step up and offer to lead in organizations you’re already a part of hobby groups like hiking or photography, religious communities, or service organizations.
- Consider joining a city or county commission or committee that covers topics that affect you and your business, like sustainability, housing, and redevelopment.
- Join a non-profit as a volunteer or even a board member. Boards love to have people who have business experience.
Pick a topic that interests you, and find a group or organization that shares your interest-it could be directly connected to your business or not.
Most of these organizations are looking for leaders like you! and the networking opportunities are endless! You’ll meet people you wouldn’t otherwise meet.
You’ll connect with them in a joint effort that’s meaningful, which will help you form bonds you wouldn’t otherwise have.
As an entrepreneur, It’s really wise to expand your network beyond the obvious business connections.
You just never know who can connect you to your next wonderful client or stream of income.
We can empower ourselves in times like this by remembering that everything, everything begins locally. It begins person to person on a local level.
You can influence how things unfold at that level. And the ripple effect of all of us taking positive action means we can collectively influence the future
for the better.
You have an opportunity, as a business leader to be a contributor to positive change. You have the opportunity to have an impact, perhaps on a bigger scale than you’re ever considered.
You matter. What you do matters. And what you contribute is a gift to us all.
