Entrepreneurial Success

Entrepreneurial Success & where does it come from? How can I get that type of success?  Where do I start to make entrepreneurial success become real for me?  Does it mean that it is a lot more work to make entrepreneurial success real?  Jobs are getting very scarce that give you money, the type of benefits you want & need if just looking to make your success in life real, knowing that giving of yourself for a lifetime of 20-30 years will be jumping from place to place.  In the past, life & having a job were better than now.  So for entrepreneurial success to work, you will need to start with money on hand which takes care of everyday financial support.  Entrepreneurial success has to come from thoughts of a product or service you will be doing to make the money, ideas for ads on your product or service you plan on doing but not like some ads on the TV that are shown that seem unrealistic just to get people to buy what is going to be sold, a website & webhost, whether you have a store online or for real in a business district or both, where you will sell at in the business district where customers will be at a lot as in a location, how to publicize your business in order to get people to look at your product or call to get services you offer, being able to schedule times to have your service(s) put in to homes or just doing things away from your shop or website, etc.  There are always going to be new experiences that you will encounter as you do business that will bring you more success or you will learn from your mistakes.

Entrepreneurial success comes from you & how you make your entrepreneurial success happen for your type of business you will be doing.  Entrepreneurial success takes a lot & won’t be an overnight thing that you just get.  It will take time & the more you work at it, the more you will achieve what you want for entrepreneurial success to become the life you are looking for.  Getting this type of success as an entrepreneur has lots of downfalls as well as being on top & working competitively.  It means lots of work getting jobs or contracts for your business, making your clients happy in everything you do to get them to be repeat customers, taking part in having surveys done that will help you know & understand how your customers feel about you & your business & whether changes need to be made to help you increase your income & profits day by day & month to month.  There are policies you will need to make in order to keep clients from wrecking your success as an entrepreneur.  The policies I am talking about are about security of your website & business outside of the computer, the policies for employees if have any under you, policies about your services or products you carry & policies you have overall for your business to make it successful for you as an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurial success isn’t easy as some make it out to be.  When making your success happen along with making it real, it takes just as much time as if you had gone to school for a number of years to know the ins & outs of what your success will be.  You need to know what type of business you are going to start, the ways in which you will be flexible & operate by what your knowledge is of the product(s) &/or service(s) are, becoming a business person with business being at the top of your list & giving it all to be successful as an entrepreneur, knowing when to become flexible in your ways & when to know about taking control of outcomes if ever in court if have disputes with clients, being able to make returns to customers when dissatisfied & knowing your products well enough that you can say that they are yours or from another company also.  Your clients are how your business keeps going & how your success as an entrepreneur brings you the type of life you imagined.  Life as an entrepreneur & having the success with your business only comes from how you operate your business & how you keep your clients coming back for more.  If they love what you are doing & love how you will keep bringing them back as repeat customers, you will have the entrepreneurial success you that a business needs through your standards, from the time & effort you put into it also.  Life as an entrepreneur can be very rewarding & happy if you love what type of service or product you carry & you know your clientele & how they love what you have to offer from your business & the type of performance you show when dealing with them.






My Life Age 6

In my life of 6-10 years of age, I had numerous activities I did at home & out with friends.  I wasn’t the only kid in the family anymore.  There was a new addition which was my brother who was born in December.  I wasn’t the center of attraction so I went out being the good kid for my parentsMy dad was working at night at the mailing facility in downtown Denver while we lived in Lochbuie, which was a trailer park & close to my mom’s parents.  They were so good to me when I needed to go there & be taken care of.  I had a lot of love for my family of parents & grandparents.  They loved me as I was the worker & played to stay busy.  I stayed away if there was no one at home or my dad was sleeping during the day since he worked most of the night. 

At the age of 6, I was usually helping my mom as she had to take care of my brother since he was less than a year old.  I did the home cleaning which was the dishes, cleaning the table & stove after doing the dishes, & also the sweeping of the kitchen floor & vacuuming of the carpet.  When I was having problems with putting the electrical plug in the outlet, I would get a charge from putting 1 prong of the plug in & then take & put my thumb or first finger on the other prong & get it in that way.  I would get zapped & let go.  I would do that a few times before I learned how much muscle it took at the time to actually get it in the outlet.  It would give me a burst of energy as I learned how to get it in that outlet more & more.  I never ever had water on my hands & tried that because I knew then that I would get more than zapped like before.  How did I know?  I read about electricity & water in the encyclopedias that was bought for me when I needed them to learn from.  I learned a lot from those A-Z encyclopedia set of 20 books.  I studied those books a lot.  I went to school during the day & would go to my grandparents after school until my mom came home at a certain time.  I would go after my mom called & let her parents know she was at home & I needed to be there, too.  I was there to eat & help out some & do my homework I had every night after school.  When I was at my grandparents, I got to watch a water fountain they had out in the front yard.  I liked it when I was so close to my immediate family members.  They all made me feel at home.  I worked for my dad also when he was gone a lot or in bed too after work.  I would use the lawnmower to cut the grass in the front to the back since our trailer was on 1 side of the property.  I would get to use the grass clippers on my hands & knees since we only had the hand held manual ones in the shed.  Doing work & chores were always something I just accepted as being part of the family.  I felt so close to them too.  Life as a kid wasn’t always fun & games.  I got to play, but school work & chores were to come first.  Those were the rules at our house along with pets being taken care of before running off to a friend’s house or going anywhere.

Since I was brought up in a Christian family, I went to church every time my parents went.  From being a baby to now as an older adult, my life was more about knowing what was right & wrong.  I was taken to church as a baby & was brought up in front of the pastor so he could show all people in church who I was & they all could say how cute I was later on.  We went to activities afterwards which included volleyball or football at a park close by the church.  When going to church, we would always travel back & forth to Denver to be with people we knew a lot more & loved to be with.  This church was a Church of God affiliation.  My mom loved to travel & drive a lot.  They were both brought up in Christian families as well.  Church was in their blood.  I learned a lot & also made friends there always & well liked.  While I was in service & sitting, I would need to use the restroom they had in church & ask to go.  After I was done, I would head for the spot they had the remaining donuts at checking to get them if there were any left.  I also ate a lot all the time.  After church, we head for any buffets around for my parents to take me since I ate a lot. Mom & dad took me there to let me eat all I wanted at a one time fee instead of having to pay some crazy prices like now for the 3 of us & my baby brother.  It was like $6/person then.  As I was growing up, they still paid less than like a McDonalds or Wendys that was around.  These were our family outings for the week.  We would always go with my parents’ parents to have a real get together.  We spent the whole day with them.  We went to visit people in nursing homes as well.  So learned a lot that way & tried real hard to stay out of trouble.  I would get in trouble once in a great while if trying something new. 

I would study after school & watch TV to keep me thinking since I had this memory problem & would need help sometimes in meaning of words or help with math problems a lot.  I was able to do this & do homework, too.  Then after a while, I just sat & either got bored with homework or really interested in the 1/2 hour TV shows.  I would watch “The Munsters“, “Addams Family“, “Gilligan’s Island“, “Batman” & more.  So I guess my dad thought that I would get behind, so he told me no TV until I got my homework done for school.  Anyway, I would get my schoolwork done & then watch TV before we ate supper & then would have a little more time for us to have our study & prayer time which brought out a lot of issues we were able to talk about within the few days we could squeeze that time in for us.  So I learned & took it on myself to be better & do what I needed at the age of 6.
