Become an Entrepreneurial Visionary with EfficioQuestion:   Sherese, what is a Visionary?  You mention this a lot in some of your Teleseminars.  Can you clarify and share the steps I need to take to get on the Visionary track.

Sherese Answer:  There are four major roles you will play in your business and there are four major roles you’ll  play as an entrepreneur.  Let’s focus on your entrepreneurial roles first:  the opportunist, the innovator, the investor and the visionary. The opportunist seizes opportunities without a box, the innovator creates solutions that drives the vision and beyond, the investor ensures profitable innovation is standard company wide, but...the visionary sees the big picture and ensures their entrepreneurial ventures are centered on taking action and achieving.

Being a “visionary” is being more than just a dreamer. A dreamer sees things as they wish they could be. A “visionary” sees things as they will become.

Most importantly, an entrepreneurial “visionary” is a person of ACTION. Things don’t just happen. Visionaries bring what they want to pass through carefully planned, organized and executed activities.

Engaging in all these roles the right way begins with defining your entrepreneurial career approach, strategy and direction.

Yes…this can be very overwhelming…but hear me out…

As entrepreneurs, sometimes we make the mistake of becoming the business and the business becomes you – and that’s ok.  But, to really make an impact you have to maintain a separate identity as the professional who owns your business.  I love my company, Effició and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done but I’m also a professional that does other things and I love to create.  To do this, I’m not only identified by Effició but also as Sherese Duncan, the entrepreneur.  You see, sometimes it’s hard to break away from your company and you really don’t have an identity as a professional with a full set of varied skills.  You have professional characteristics and credentials that need to be showcased separately.

This is why discovering your eDentity is very important; you have to have the entrepreneurial (business) skills to move into your defined level of success.

Become the VISIONARY of not only your business but your full entrepreneurial career!
