5 Tips for the Empowered Entrepreneur


Do your agents have what they need to succeed? Are you tapping into the right resources, using the right technology? As an entrepreneur building a new business, the path to success often comes with more questions than answers. Thankfully, you can learn from colleagues, mentors, and other professionals who have been in your shoes before. By focusing your time and resources on a few important strategies, the ability to build momentum and put your business on the path to success will be within reach. Find out five tips on how to achieve entrepreneurial greatness.

1. Work smart

There is true meaning behind the phrase “work smarter, not harder.” It’s all about efficiency! Your business is growing because you hired the right agents, but are you using them to the best of their abilities? Your associates are your most valuable resource, so instead of trying to solve unfamiliar problems on your own, reach out to your colleagues for help. Avoid duplicating work and focus on delegating tasks to those best to complete them. It’s easy to get caught up in the small things on a daily basis, but working smarter also means prioritizing what is most important to you and your business.

2. Sleep more

Becoming the leader who only sleeps four hours a night may seem like a viable way to run your business. After all, working more hours means getting more done, right? Wrong. Too little sleep leaves us all drowsy and unable to concentrate the next day. 43% of business leaders say they don't get enough sleep at least four nights a week, which affects leadership ability. Most of the functions associated with leadership come from your prefrontal cortex, which doesn’t do well with sleep deprivation. Get enough sleep and your agents, associates, and business with thank you!

3. Grow your network

No matter your market or where you see your business in 10 years, your expansion potential reaches only as far as your network. Although attending in-person networking events is important, it’s not always possible when running a business. Fortunately, social media and online communities make expanding your reach beyond your local community easier than ever. Can’t make it to a local event? Discussions with others will open your network to influencers you may not otherwise meet. Additionally, an online presence can boost SEO and position you as a thought leader in the industry.

4. Give yourself a break

Since the 1940s, studies have shown that break time is vital to the workforce. Unfortunately, if leaders don’t apply the practice to their daily routines, their agents might feel like they can’t take a break either. Consider taking active breaks throughout your day—like going on a walk—and encourage your agents to do the same.

5. Mobilize and look to the cloud

Nine-to-five businesses that only operate within office walls are going the way of the fax machines that once occupied them. Growing a business means traveling to meet new customers, heading to trade shows, and collaborating with partners, regardless of location. Investing in tools that give your agents mobile and cloud access means that they can continue working from virtually anywhere, while helping grow your business. The mobile workforce is expected to grow to 105.4 million in 2020 to more than 72% percent of the US workforce by that time. As the mobile workforce grows, so will the move for small businesses to move to the cloud. Give your agents every opportunity to work and be successful while fitting with their lives.
