Entrepreneurial Motivation

Inhabiting a permanent mindset constantly thinking of new business opportunities to create myself, I always enjoy reading tidbits about how others engaged in similar pursuits fare.  I’m also fascinated with how many traits are shared with the behaviour of top reps and business founder-managers.

And then I read the advice of a French entrepreneur.  At the foot of the article is his 10-point summary for success.  The ones that resonate most for sales success illuminate:

Mistakes – if something goes pear-shaped, admit it in public with the prospect and rectify with their involvement

Communities – create them inside your patch, get your customers and prospects talking

Success – my favourite as I say this to people all the time, don’t focus on the cash, rather follow success, and then the financial rewards will come
