Entrepreneur – Don’t Be Afraid to Be Strong and Take a Stand

By spending just a little time acknowledging your employees fears and concerns, you empower them. When you give employees a chance to voice their concerns, to acknowledge them and be open about them, you give them permission. You give them permission to take a stand, to do something to combat the evil in the world. It is not just a cliché, it is not just a saying. Each human being has a responsibility to contribute to making the world better place. Evil really does triumph when good people watch it happen and do nothing. When you allow your employees to talk about things in the world, you empower them to be brave and to make the changes that are necessary in the world.



You are in business to make money, to earn a profit and that is an important fact no entrepreneur can ignore. At the same time, you must always be mindful that your employees, clients, customers and prospects are people. People have feelings, needs and emotions that are affected by world events. Do not be afraid when your employees want to talk about what is going on in the world. Allow them to have a voice, and to stand strong to do something right to stop the evil that is going on in the world around them. The place for their speak, protests and voice is not the workplace, but allow and encourage them to make the world a better place. Do not make your employees help evil triumph.

Entrepreneurs who remember they make money with and from people will be better off than those who ignore the people in all they do.The world impacts your business and your heart, don’t let that scare you. Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. It takes bravery, courage and stamina to run a business. So it may be scary to speak up about world events, but you can do it and you can allow your employees to do it. The question for you this thrilling say is, at work, how do you deal with all the upheaval going on in the world?

  • I was just having this conversation with someone last week. I think that you should stand for something or say nothing.

  • You are sooo right! Taking chances take us further, to places we would never go with our own feet!

  • Your words are always so inspirational! You make some fantastic points. Great advice for any entrepreneur!

  • This is so true. I think we tend to think "this will never happen to us"... until it does. Events like what happened this week affect everyone, business owners, too.

  • Adding heart to the position. I agree there are times when that is very important.

  • So spot on - as bloggers that makes us entrepreneurs and we have to stand strong and keep in mind that we must believe in ourselves.

  • I wish more people spoke out on the chaos in our world right now. You quoted one of my favorites: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke <----I believe in this immensely.

  • This is something I'm still working on but I can see it helping a lot. I love your points. Entrepreneurs shouldn't be afraid to share their viewpoints.

  • These are really great points and great advise. We all need to be in charge of our lives as well as our businesses.
