In the spirit of Global Entrepreneurship Week, we asked Strategic Coach clients to share their secrets to success. The fourth in the series is written by Gary Klaben, President of Coyle Financial Counsel, Inc. in Glenview, Illinois. Gary also coaches workshops for Strategic Coach in Chicago.
There’s no point in being an entrepreneur and doing it half-heartedly. If you don’t go at it full-bore, you get caught between two worlds with none of the advantages of either. In order to be successful, you need to shift your thinking and behaviors about who you are and what your intended future will look like.
If you’ve decided to be an entrepreneur, that means that you’ve chosen to be responsible for your own success. You know that rewards will come to you only once you’re already creating value for customers.
