When meeting with clients for the first time, we have to schedule at least a 30 minute cushion to our next appointment because the entrepreneurs are ON FIRE for their company and can talk for hours about their venture. We love these meetings- their passion and excitement is contagious and we leave feeling energized!
I came across a really interesting article in INC. Magazine that really hit on entrepreneurs’ true motivations. It stated that “Founders who understand what matters most to them are more likely to create ventures that satisfy them emotionally as well as materially.”
They created a quick quiz to see what is driving you into the hardest and most thrilling profession. They surveyed about 2000 entrepreneurs about their motivations and compared the results to non-entrepreneurs who also completed the survey. Among their findings: Entrepreneurs are from Mars; non-entrepreneurs are from Venus. Their values were completely different!
