If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve probably realized by now that your company can only grow as much as you as its leader are able and willing to grow. The person you are today – 2 months, 3 years or a decade into building your business – is not the person you were when you started this exciting and often nerve-wracking journey.
But, what is it that has made you the leader you are today? Sure, you’re wiser, smarter, and more experienced, but it’s more than that. According to Michael S. Melfi, author, IP attorney and now the co-founder of Treps Nest an online resource and entrepreneurial development program, it is, most importantly, your habits, behaviors and beliefs, especially around the areas of business knowledge, business strategy, business development and business mindset. In order to build your business beyond where it is today, you’ll need to also build yourself into the president, CEO or founder who will lead the way.
So just how do you make such fundamental changes in your personal identity? It happens a little bit at a time, and the Treps Nest 45-Day Entrepreneur Challenge is designed to help you take some of the most essential first steps toward your new role as the leader of your organization. And this isn’t a one-time process. The leader you are at $1 million in revenue is not the leader you’ll need to be at $10 or $100 million in revenue. Some of the changes you’ll make at each major milestone include adjusting how you see yourself; challenging your own belief systems around success and failure; considering your own strengths and weaknesses; and learning how to delegate to the smart people you’ve hired to execute on your vision.
Join us online next Wednesday as we launch our pilot program Lead Your Startup to Success: The 45-Day Treps Nest Entrepreneur Challenge. Chandler Innovations clients receive a $250 scholarship to offset the cost as we pilot this program. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the code.
