If You Want to Be a Successful Entrepreneur, Inspire Yourself, then Your Team


In order to succeed as an entrepreneur, you must find a way to inspire yourself so that you can inspire your team. An inspired leader and an inspired team can reach heights of success others can barely dream of achieving.

Entrepreneur First Inspire Yourself Then Inspire Your Team

When you are an entrepreneur, it is your vision that should guide the actions of your business. This means you are responsible for inspiring your team. If your business is new, inspiration may be close at hand. There is a certain excitement and joy in a new business venture. On the other hand, if you have been in business for a significant period of time or you have been going through a hard period in your business, it may be hard to be inspiring.

One of your most important jobs as an entrepreneur is to inspire your team. When the business has been going through a difficult time, it is particularly hard to find ways to inspire the team. Because situations like this are natural in the course of business, it makes sense to prepare for it in advance. When you make plans for your business, you plan for a variety of things:

  • daily operations
  • big picture plans
  • strategic operations
  • marketing
  • sales
  • employee management
  • production
  • the succession of company ownership



While you are planning all the things in this list, be sure to plan ways to inspire yourself and your team. This is not an easy task. Things that inspire one to push forward today, may not work next week. Just as you look for new ways to market and increase sales on a regular basis, you must look for sources of inspiration. Keep a running list so that when the need arises you can go to the list and get what you need. This is a much wiser course of action than trying to create things on the spur of the moment when it is needed.

  • It's an interesting way to see the things. Inspiration is fundamental.

  • As a new entrepreneur, I enjoyed reading this and it’s a wise advise that I will hold close to me. I have to remember be inspirational to my team.

  • It's the same as the airplane masks! You've got to take care of yourself so you can take care of others. Inspiration is contagious, so you'll spread the enthusiasm when you feel it.

  • I agree with this piece a 100%. It is important as entrepreneurs to stay positive and encourage ourselves and not get wrapped up in growing others that we forget to grow ourselves

  • It all starts with you. If you believe in your idea then your team will also. It's important to bring inspiration and confidence!

  • These are great tips to have in mind. Thanks for sharing this.

  • I think feeling confident and inspiring yourself definitely helps you be a better leader.

  • Like most things leading by example is always a good thing. I am a minor player in the blogging world and try to do exemplary work to get campaigns.

  • Love this. A team is only as good as the leader

  • I really love this. I used to have contractors for my VA business, and if I wasn't excited, it was hard to get them excited. You have to be passionate about what you're doing if you want others to be passionate, too.
