There are no rules when it comes to navigating the entrepreneurial world.
Choosing to become an entrepreneur (and assuming all the risk this entails) requires a certain do-it-yourself spirit, or “rugged individualism.” You’re confident about what you have to offer, whether that’s a product, service, or other commodity, and you believe you’re capable enough to get it into the marketplace. You also accept that, in the absence of a traditional work structure, you’ll have to do everything yourself.
If there’s one thing you can count on as an entrepreneur, it’s that you’re inevitably going to experience not one but several setbacks on the journey. What if you had the tools to face those setbacks with a new mindset and come out the other side with the lesson to add to your entrepreneurial book of wisdom?
When it comes to growing ideas, expanding mindsets, and building relationships with clients and prospects, asking questions can be far more valuable than providing answers.
