Twenty Lessons as an Entrepreneur

entrepreneur_3 A friend recently sent me this post of one women’s lessons as an entrepreneur, twenty lessons that Alicia Morgan has learned. 1.    It’s rare when someone is their word; treasure it in others, cultivate it in yourself 2.    Call AND email – the squeaky wheel does get the grease 3.    Hold yourself to a standard of behavior and business 4.    Pay attention to detail 5.    It truly is win/win – don’t work with folks who think about it any other way 6.    Focus 7.    Don’t bang your head against the wall – go with what works, but that doesn’t mean you don’t continue to innovate 8.    Be kind but firm 9.    Adopt the Cindy Crawford motto and never point out your flaws but do admit to your mistakes 10.    FEAR:  False Expectations Appearing Real 11.    You always have a choice 12.    People will fight you on everything – stick to your guns 13.    Perception is reality - you’re always creating an impression 14.    Everything is a negotiation, even if you don’t think it is 15.    People hear what they want to and usually only remember the negative 16.    Generosity looks good on 17.    Have the difficult conversations – they’re always worth it 18.    It goes by fast and your health is the most important thing - take care of it/make it a priority 19.    Those old business axioms are true, e.g., take time to hire and be fast to fire 20.    The path to hell really is paved with good intentions
