Are You An Entrepreneur, Sole Proprietor or in Business for Yourself?

If you receive and spend money, the answer is a resounding YES. Why? Because, in today’s world your life is a business. An entrepreneur is one who starts and conducts a business assuming full control and risk. A sole proprietor is a person having the exclusive title to anything. We all have exclusive title to our skills and talents.

If you work for a company, it would be to your benefit to change the way you look at that relationship. Rather than “I am working for the company” say “I am selling my skills and talents to the company.” The difference is that the company takes the control and risk. The benefit of this perception is that it will make you stronger and more aware of maintaining your skills and talents and improving them so that they are always marketable. When the time comes for you to quit, get laid off or be ‘downsized’ you then become a full entrepreneur to create and build a mechanism to market your skills and talents to an employer or your own business. The same will hold true when the time comes for you to create a fulfilling transition into semi-or full-retirement.

Dear Coach Pete: I have a business with eight people and often I am feeling very overwhelmed. I can’t seem to get the many different tasks done. It’s affecting my company, my family and my health. What can I do? —F.M.

Dear F.M.: Today, with companies wanting more for less there is a growing problem in our society and in our businesses, especially for management and business owners. Without knowing your situation entirely here are a few things for you to consider doing:

  1. Sit back, breath deeply, and try to still your mind 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Get clear on what’s most important for you this day.
  3. List everything you can delegate, and assign it.
  4. Break your big task into smaller more manageable ones.
  5. Prioritize your tasks and assign a time to complete each.
