Entrepreneur Business Ideas And The Right Mindset

 Entrepreneur Business Ideas And The Right Mindset

Being an entrepreneur isn’t always easy. Nothing worth doing is ever easy, though, is it?

Entrepreneur business ideas are all about having the right mindset. It is all about being able to turn a problem into an opportunity rather than a stumbling block. Successful business ideas can pop into your brain at any time, but you have to get your mindset in the right place and take action.

Life is full of challenges and an true entrepreneur will turn those into opportunities.

Make one big call each day

Make the effort to call a person or organisation each day that could take your business to the next level. This could be an ideal customer, a new out sourced supplier or an old business contact. Every call won’t necessarily generate results but if you’ve got some top new business ideas, that one call could be the one that makes all the difference to the future of your business.

Put your prices up and offer more value

It’s always a challenge to your mindset to put your prices up and you might think that it is not one of the best ideas for a business. But people buy on value, not on price. So if your customers are not buying at your current prices, it means that they have lost sight of the value that you offer. If everybody brought on price alone there would be no luxury cars or watches, no smart-phones or designer clothes and no first class air travel, to name a few. When you put your prices up you tend to feel a bit better and it forces you to add more value to your clients.

Select carefully what media you watch 

Sometimes your best ideas can occur when you hear, see or read about a problem that some people have and how you can solve it for them. You do have to keep informed on current events and world news, but don’t get dragged down by watching every bit of bad news in the media about recession, wars, politics and or scandals. Your mind needs to be able to concentrate on your business and the constant level of bad news can bring you down.  Be selective in your media watching and allow your brain some ‘down time’ away from all the stress of the world.

Sort out your finances

Separate your business finances from your personal finances and make sure that your business pays you every month.  The temptation for entrepreneurs can sometimes be to forgo any salary. But you are critical to the business and your business needs you and should reward you. Not receiving any salary will lead to resentment towards your business. Your journey is towards working to live rather than living to work, and you have to enjoy your journey to success or you’ll never reach it.

Do have a holiday

If you don’t take a holiday, you will burn yourself out and start to begrudge going into your business everyday. Having your own business is all about having freedom but are you becoming a slave to your business? Often the best entrepreneur ideas will come when you are relaxing and not running around in your business without a moment to take a breath.

Outsource Tasks

Your business will take up a lot of your time, so you will need help. Using an outsourced service does feel risky when you are a small business and finances are tight. But the key to getting your business bigger is realising that you can’t do everything on your own. Whether it is a book-keeper, a graphic designer, a website traffic specialist or a virtual assistant it will help you to work on your business rather than doing little bits of everything and wasting your time on task that could be done quicker by somebody else. You have to spend your time most effectively and being in contact with customers will pay more dividends than sorting out paperwork.

Entrepreneur Business Ideas And The Right Mindset

The big difference between winners and losers is excuses. Losers LOVE excuses. Winners HATE them.  It’s actually one of the ways to determine if you should be an entrepreneur or not.  Do you like making lots of excuses?

Here are some top excuses people use for putting off their entrepreneur ideas:

  • No time
  • No money
  • No education
  • Not sure if it will succeed
  • Will get to it “later”
  • Spouse won’t let them

If you are someone who does NOT lean on excuses, then chances are you’d make an excellent and successful entrepreneur. For a help with your entrepreneur business ideas, check out this FREE, 7 day marketing bootcamp.
