An entrepreneur is variously defined as someone who works for himself or herself or one who drives a business that involves innovation or simply as a person who has an idea and creates a business to focus on it. Fundamentally, an entrepreneur is a dreamer. Walt Disney, clearly a remarkable dreamer, said this: “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” Entrepreneurship comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes: small business, home-based business, online business, service business and virtually every kind of commercial enterprise.

6 Tips for the New Entrepreneur

The path of entrepreneurship is not an easy one, but it is immensely satisfying for many people. Here are 6 tips leading to success and satisfaction:

  • Manage your time wisely. If you try to do everything by yourself without time boundaries, you may risk your health and important relationships. Set times when you aren’t available so you can concentrate your focus on what matters most.
  • Don’t work yourself to death. Know what time to start and when to end your work. Take short breaks to keep fresh.
  • Be prepared for highs and lows. Work to keep up your important self-confidence.
  • Keep learning. The more you know about your business, the better you’ll do.
  • Have a vision and a strategy. Plan what you need to do to succeed. There is no automatic success like “build it and they will come.”
  • Balance your life. Set time aside for those your love. Take some time off.
