A Small Business Entrepreneur’s Top 10 Playbook

As a small business entrepreneur for over 20 years and a former professional athlete with a career that spanned about the same amount of time, I’ve been able to utilize aspects of both those endeavors that have helped enable me to become a successful small business person.

Like a well played game, all businesses will go through their natural cycles of ebbs and flows.  You, as a small business entrepreneur, need to know when to call a timeout, change out your players or when to run another play.  Sports has taught me the value of team play, camaraderie, working towards common goals, learning from your temporary setbacks and the ability to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep on going.

If I were to put together a top 10 list of “must haves” whether you’re a startup company or a well-established business, it would go something like this.

# 2: Believe in Your Talent –  

Talent by itself is never enough.  There are a lot of times that people who have tremendous talent come up way short of ever fulfilling their potential.  You have to believe in your talent, be passionate about your talent, continue to invest in your talent and surround yourself with the best talent available.
