Career Mentoring and Motivation for Entrepreneurs

You must understand and embrace your role as an entrepreneur!

There are four major roles you will play as an entrepreneur, 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.  Although, to really make an impact you have to maintain a separate identity as the professional who owns your business.  I love my company, Efficio 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 Efficio but also as Sherese Duncan, the entrepreneur. 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.”

Mentoring and motivation combined with education is a powerful career tool!

Mentoring is focused on supporting the growth of you as the entrepreneur; motivation is focused on guiding you through the inevitable peaks and valleys of building an entrepreneurial career. With mentoring and motivation, you’re engaging in strategic direct discussions from a source of wisdom, teaching, and support that gain short-term successes and long-term sustainability. It is our experience and belief that providing our clients access to a consistent and viable resource for solutions to problems faced in building a fulfilling entrepreneurial career is a powerful tool in pursuing success; so much so that we created “Mobilizeu: Mentoring and Motivation Program.”

Every once in a while you do something that surprises you and you catch a glimpse of the entrepreneur you were made to be.  You…get featured in a business magazine.  You…acquire an important account.  You…surpass your sales quota.   As you do, you glimpse – for a moment – your true entrepreneurial self and why you do what you do.

But what if you could turn those rare moments into everyday moments?

Why Mobilizeu? What’s in the name?

To take ownership of your entrepreneurial career you have to begin with mobilization.  To mobilize with Efficio’s support means to assemble, prepare, and organize resources and put them into use in order to achieve your ultimate entrepreneurial career goals beyond just “owning a business.”  When you mobilize and engage with defined objectives moving in a specified direction, opportunities will begin to present themselves without effort.

As an entrepreneurial client of Efficio, you must focus on a radical transmogrification intended to change or improve!  This can range from something as simple as a new brand message, to the extreme of implementing a new image.  If you’ve read Red Diamond, you know that everything you do in your entrepreneurial career must start with strategy.  Strategy gives you direction and focus. It takes your entrepreneurial career activities from low-level low-payoff activities to high-level high-payoff activities.

We cover everything you need to know in order to complete your total entrepreneurial career strategy broken down into five key areas: Your Person, Your Skills, Your Image, Your Brand, and Your Lifestyle.

In order to build world-class organizations, an entrepreneur must engage in education, training, coaching, and consulting with a trusted resource for an extended period of time focused on career and business development simultaneously.  You need support, guidance, and access to a learning process that allows you to excel based on your unique personality. This means we have to start with the basic foundation of who you are as the professional and the basic foundation of what your business represents. These two things together represent your entrepreneurial identity or what we call at Effició…your eDentity.

Private_CoachingOver the last 19 years I have discovered that business owners become the business or their identity is the business.  This is a huge challenge and why so many entrepreneurs get the “business burn out” syndrome.  For example, I was recently speaking to a business colleague of mine and asked her if she thought she was an entrepreneur (she’s in business).  She said, “No not really, I feel like I still have a job.”  Then I asked her if she feels she is developing an entrepreneurial career.  She said, “No not really, when I think of a career I think of career day in college or career fairs.” We both laughed and then I gave her my take on entrepreneurial career development:

“It’s the same as if you were going to college and choosing to be a doctor, a lawyer or an accountant.  You take classes, you get certified, you get experience, you do your tenure, and you start and ultimately cultivate your career.  The same is true with entrepreneurship, except most entrepreneurs have not thought about working on the career aspect of their chosen profession of entrepreneurship.”

It is crucial to identify and map out your entrepreneurial career to create your identity as the owner of your business in addition to developing your business.  This way, you have a distinct identity as the entrepreneur that is harmonized, not controlled, by your entrepreneurial endeavors.

It’s Time for Results

We find that there are four main types of entrepreneurs who use our mentoring and support:

  • Entrepreneurs who don’t know what they want, but want to do something.
  • Entrepreneurs who know what they want, but don’t know how to get it.
  • Entrepreneurs who know what they want, how to get it, but haven’t for some reason.
  • Entrepreneurs who enjoy what they do, but want to do it more strategically.

If you’re a true entrepreneur, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns, especially about career development – and you need confidential resources to not only confide in but who can also move you from strategy to action!  This is Effició’s core competency. With Effició’s Mobilizeu Program…
