The entrepreneurial mix is critical in community development.

Change the conversations about your entrepreneurial mix.

In communities, people start-up businesses with all the enthusiasm in the world.  They were excited about the prospects and had more ideas than they can handle. They can’t wait to get to their business each day with high expectations and feeling unstoppable. Unfortunately, a sound entrepreneurial mix to support them is missing in the community.

Then something happens; realities and life keep popping up and getting in the way. No time to get things done, financial problems, customer issues and their value chain realities hit them — all the exciting things as well as the roadblocks.

The newness wears off, and people seem to stop looking at you and your business; all things entrepreneurs tend to see and fix before anyone else. It is a well-known fact that when entrepreneurs are in the mix, everyone benefits from better outcomes. 

It’s important to be able to identify entrepreneurial characteristics.

An entrepreneurial mix requires a framework.

Start by putting the foundations and operating frameworks in place early, while the numbers are small. You will then be in a far better position to cope with growth and adversity. Better still, if you are not an entrepreneur, then make sure you engage on in some way to help you with your business.

There is too much going on in today’s business environment for you to know it all. When others are providing ideas, be sure you are paying attention to what they are saying and not just thinking about how you are going to respond.

Entrepreneurs in your community need conversations and ideas from other entrepreneurs to perform at their best. While training is helpful, your problems and frustrations will often be more comfortable and quickly solved with the sustained efforts of entrepreneurship.

Become one of those communities where entrepreneurs are well supported and encouraged to help each other. You will notice the difference as people become happier and more excited as the town starts to thrive again.
