Modern Entrepreneurs



I have friends in all different types of businesses: Builders, Real Estate Agents, Personal

Trainers, Manufacturers, Distributors, etc.

Each of them is successful in their own right. What I want to talk about are Modern Entrepreneurs

and some of their characteristics.

Branding:

I know what you’re going to say, “Branding is nothing new it’s been

around since the beginning of bartering.”

I know, however the Modern Entrepreneurs are not branding their product,

company or service, they are Branding themselves! This is something unheard of in the

past. Imagine Phil Knight branding

himself instead of NIKE or Ray Crock branding himself instead of

McDonalds. Who knows how it would have

worked.

Online Presence:

In this day and age if you and/or your company are not online you’re not

in business! I had a rental property

that needed yard work done and my normal guy is no longer in the business, so I

had to find someone new. Where do you

think I looked? I don’t even know if I

have a phone book! You guessed it,

Google and within 10 min I had a scheduled estimate for the next day. Don’t fight what is, just adapt and learn.

Marketing:

Again, something that isn’t new but the rules have changed. No longer is it necessary to spend thousands

of dollars with an Ad Agency to get the word out. The Modern Entrepreneurs are using tools like

Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Youtube, Google, etc to get their marketing out. The Greatest part about these tools is that

you don’t waste any of your Marketing.

If you know what you’re doing, the people who respond to your Marketing

may as well consider themselves sold!

Overhead:

Most traditional businesses require a substantial amount of

overhead. Inventory, Insurance, Payroll,

etc. In this day and age being

profitable is easier than ever. You’ve

got options like affiliates, MLM, Direct Sales.

All of these business models are EXTREMELY profitable but you better understand

the first three bullet points!

I hope you understand that as time changes so do the

opportunities. The basic principles

still remain the same but these are different times with different business

models. I have a friend who works

NON-STOP, literally. He is also very

successful with tons of employees overhead and headaches with his traditional

business. I’ve also got another friend,

one of the Modern Entrepreneurs, who works about 30 hours/week with none of the

above mentioned overhead and makes more money.

It truly does pay to be one of the Modern Entrepreneurs.
