As an entrepreneur with a start-up, it is important to understand the micro-universe that you are trying to create. What does life look like as a business? What type of work environment do they need to thrive? These questions are all important when considering entrepreneurship. This blog post will discuss how entrepreneurs can see their lives through the eyes of a business and use this perspective for success!
What do you think about it?
Goals and benchmarks are important to measure progress in any business. But when an entrepreneur runs their own company they have much more than just themselves to consider. What kind of goals should entrepreneurs set for themselves as well as employees if happiness or wellness is a goal? What types of metrics would be appropriate for measuring this type of success? The answers to these questions will vary depending on what your personal definition and goals are!
When we create goals or benchmarks for our own self or others, what do we need them to say specifically? So they’ll actually help us get somewhere? What if instead of just saying “improve productivity” as our goal, we said “increase the number of tasks completed each day by 20%”? What if instead of saying “improve wellness”, we said “increase employee happiness levels by 30%?” These are all examples that take a specific perspective on what you want and provide metrics to measure whether or not your goal is being met. You can do this for anything-metrics may be different for marketing than they would be for customer service!
How to make money
Entrepreneurship has been an exciting way for me to make money. Since my senior year at college when I started a small web design company with two friends from school. With our limited experience, there were so many things that we didn’t know how to do. But had no problem learning as time went by. The first challenge was finding appropriate jobs online because back then Google AdSense barely existed (I’m dating myself here!), Facebook wasn’t around yet, and most people weren’t even on Twitter; so essentially there were no online advertising outlets. What we did to promote our business was talk about it at school and make flyers that we’d hand out around campus.
The first time I got a customer, my jaw dropped when she handed me the cash before walking away with two custom-designed web pages for her small company of six employees! What an adrenaline rush; this is what my friends and I had been waiting for all along validation for our work. We immediately went downstairs to the local pizzeria on Main Street in Amherst MA where they let us use their wifi (this may sound strange nowadays). But back then businesses really supported each other by helping one another grow and succeed. So pizza places would allow you to hook up your laptop to their wifi and use it for a nominal fee.
What does this teach us about life?
First, we have to find our own personal niche and be willing to work hard at it. Second, life rules can change on you so don’t take anything for granted; in other words think outside the box! Third, never give up because if I had stopped that first summer after college when my friends went back home or later when my mom was diagnosed with stage III lung cancer (she’s been healthy ever since). Then I wouldn’t have all these wonderful memories and experiences which led me down this path into entrepreneurship.
What is life to you, and how do you want it to look? What are your goals for yourself as well as others?

What would happen if you were just one person trying to bring your vision into reality on your own. Without any outside help or support from investors or other team members? What happens when you’re competing against companies that outmatch yours by far in terms of size yet still remain only focused on themselves rather than getting involved at all? What can you do to keep up and thrive while also not drowning in the overwhelming sea of competition?
What are some possible strategies that an entrepreneur may use to advance their small businesses successfully, be it through leveraging innovation or creating a niche market for themselves? What’s more important than sheer size is how well one knows what they’re doing.
To put things into perspective:
Our own galaxy contains about 300 billion suns and 100 billion earth-like planets; but there are only three trillion humans on this planet. On top of having less people living here, America covers almost nine time zones worth of territory as opposed to Russia (seven), China (nine) or Canada (ten). With such little room compared with these other countries, we have to be more creative and competitive than ever.
