Passion for your business mission is a good thing. Without it your business wouldn’t get anywhere. But passion will only take you so far. That’s what this participant in the AllBusiness.com Big Business Contest has discovered.
“I feel that the business owns me rather than vice versa. My vision to take my business to the next level is to define my role for the creation of intellectual property and put in place a distribution system to implement these strategies. I hope to improve my productivity and outreach and reduce my stress levels. I would like to make a greater different in the lives of people who need access to finance.”
Are you in the same boat? Do you feel like your business owns you too?
If so, it’s time to get some help. The best way to do that is to find a mentor or create a masterminds group so you can tap into the collective energy and wisdom of business owners who have paved the road before you. You simply cannot accomplish this alone.
Before you begin, make sure you have defined what you are looking for. Take a look at the key steps identified in “Does Your Small Business Need A Mentor?”
To set up your own masterminds group takes some thoughtful action. You can learn a lot from business owners who have been there. Take a look at “How to Set Up A Masterminds Group” for some great tips and advice.
