When entrepreneurship isn’t your dream job anymore

10-entrepreneurship.jpg

Just like so many others, did you harbour the dream of starting your own company someday? Did you put in months, or even years of sweat and toil behind making your entrepreneurship dream a success? If your company didn’t take off despite all your expertise, energy and dedication, you need to take a step back and consider that maybe the entrepreneurial dream isn’t for you. And you aren’t the only one caught in this situation. Thousands of employees quit their high-paying corporate jobs every year to start something of their own. But what should one do when one’s dream of a successful startup doesn’t materialise? Here are a few steps to help you cope when you find yourself in a similar position.

Take a step back and evaluate

If you feel like your company is going nowhere even after all your efforts, you need to take some time off to analyse where you stand. Did you build your expectations too high right from the beginning? Are you suddenly overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be accomplished? If you can identify your problem area and work towards eliminating it, you stand in a better position to revive your dying dream. Analysing the root cause of your feelings will give you a direction after you’ve had a chance to consider all your options.

Take the effort to make a change

If you’re not happy with your position in your company, you can always transform it to suit your needs. Yes, your employees might need to adjust at first to the changes you’re making, but it is worth the effort if the changes work out in your favour and better the work environment. For example, if you need your employees to follow a rigid schedule, you need to convey it to them. If there are certain responsibilities that come with being an entrepreneur that you hate, you can hire someone to take that work load off you. Try different strategies to make your entrepreneurial dream a reality before you give up on it completely.

Start anew

If you’re not happy even after making the necessary changes, consider whether entrepreneurship can work for you in a different setting. For example, if you were the CEO of your previous company and you weren’t happy with the responsibilities that came with being the CEO, you can always try a different position like being a silent partner or a consultant the next time around. Similarly, you can choose a different industry that’s more to your liking. This can only happen when you have identified and learnt from the mistakes you made in your previous company and avoid those mistakes in your new venture.

However, after much trial and error if you still feel that entrepreneurship isn’t for you, you need to move on with the experience you gained and the lessons you learnt to an all new career path. Starting over might seem intimidating, but it’s better than being stuck in a rut forever.

How To Maintain Co-Founder Relations At Your Startup

Cofounder.jpg

Finding a co-founder is no less difficult than finding your spouse. As, if you think about it, running a startup is similar to marriage in so many different ways. You have to enter into a long-term commitment, spend tonnes and tonnes of time working on building a relationship with one another and make sure you have similar values, qualities, and ideals.

Not to mention, it’s nothing short of being one hell of an emotional roller coaster. Similarly, launching your startup and entering into an agreement with your co-founders is very simple. Sticking to that agreement is a whole different ballgame and that’s where trust, passion, drive and many such other qualities come into play.

In this post let’s look at a few ways in which you can maintain co-founder relationships. These are learning straight from one of our co-founders, Pranay Gupta.

Keep Expectations Realistic

One thing which greatly helped us was that all three of us (Anand, Pranay and Varun) had previous startup experience. It wasn’t the first time that either of us were getting into a co-founder’s agreement. Hence, we knew exactly what we were in for and had realistic expectations from the agreement. For example, you’d obviously have extremely high expectations from the first girlfriend you ever had. But after getting the first reality check you’d be better prepared getting into a second relationship. This was the case for the three of us when it came to forming a co-founders agreement.

Qualities of an Entrepreneur

images

In recent years the media have glamorized the challenge of starting and growing a business.A quick search on Amazon.co.uk will display many books by entrepreneurs and other“business experts” describing “how they made it”, “my first million” etc. Prime-time television shows such as Dragons Den, Risking it All and The Apprentice have proved hugely popular by showcasing the challenges faced in setting up a business. Entrepreneurs such as Lord Sugar, Sir Richard Branson and Sir James Dyson have earned enormous fortunes and provide inspiration for the next generation of budding business leaders.

Entrepreneurs play an important role in society. They make a major contribution to
economic activity. Imagine how many jobs are created by the thousands of new businesses
that are set up every year and by the small businesses that prosper and take on more staff.
Entrepreneurs encourage innovation through investment and risk-taking. Many of the
products and services you use every day have been developed through entrepreneurial
activity rather than in the research laboratories or board-rooms of large multinationals.
However, it is important to realise that starting a business is rarely glamorous. In fact it is
nearly always very hard work. For every success story there are almost certainly many
more business failures or businesses that don’t meet the expectations of the people who set them up.
Entrepreneurs take on the challenge of starting and growing a business. What
characteristics are required to help them succeed?
Not surprisingly, much research has been done to examine the personality and other
characteristics of successful entrepreneurs to see if there is a proven method or route to
success. You will find many lists of “what is takes to be an entrepreneur”, but they tend to
say the same things. So here is a summary of the key findings!
Key characteristics of successful entrepreneurs.
Successful entrepreneurs tend to have one or more of the following characteristics:
Passionate about their product or service and about getting things right for the
customer
Visionary – they have faith in what they are trying to do. They tend to not get
too bogged down in the fine detail of day-to-day business
Energetic and driven – prepared to work consistently long hours, especially in
the early stages
Self-starting and decisive – they don’t wait for others to take decisions.
Entrepreneurs tend to take the initiative, spotting opportunities early and taking
decisions quickly
Calculated risk-takers – not reckless; they are prepared to take a risk in order to
maximise the rewards
Multitasker – able to take on more than one role (product development, selling,
recruitment)
Resilient and determined – able to handle problems and overcome hurdles.
Setting up a business is difficult and time-consuming
Focused – sets clear goals and self-imposed high standards
Results-orientated – take pleasure from achieving targets and setting the bar
higher. Entrepreneurs tend to set clear objectives for their business which then
feed into relevant business planning
Persuasive – entrepreneurs are good at bringing other people and businesses
“along with the idea”; persuading suppliers to supply a new business, or an
employee to leave a current job and join the start-up
Leadership – an entrepreneur leads his or her own business (often working alone
in the early stages). As the business develops, the skills of leading others become
even more important
Lucky – not to be laughed at! Every business needs some good luck – e.g. being
in the right place at the right time. But remember the advice of a well-known
golfer – “the harder I practice, the luckier I get”
The important thing to remember about the list above is that an entrepreneur is unlikely to possess all these characteristics!
Anyone who starts a business has strengths and weaknesses. However, the savvy
entrepreneur recognizes where his/her weaknesses lie and takes steps to address them (e.g.recruit someone with the right skills)

CRUX IS ” Entrepreneur is a leader ,who focus on progressive growth of self,people, product ,Market( customer’s/consumer’s) consistently…”
