No matter how many times we hear the word “Entrepreneurship”, the term and its related theories are still debatable. Different books were written in this area, and one of the most famous books that I personally read about is The One Minute Entrepreneur: The Secret to Creating and Sustaining a Successful Business by Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson, and Ethan Willis and finally, I got to read it.
Although the book was designed to advise the reader on the key elements of successful entrepreneurs, the book is shallow and doesn’t provide deep information about each of those elements. Nevertheless, the book can be on the reading list of any manager as it is very short and can be a good companion during a travel.
Some of the elements that I would like to remember are:
- Watch my ego;
- Join a toastmaster club to improve my public speaking skills;
- Always remember to bring a fresh eye to any task I do;
- Daily journaling about things that I learn;
- Don’t be afraid of seeking advice and mentorship when needed;
- Not neglecting the power of a good cash management for any business or project; and
- Whenever I have a team, I would like to remember that my role is not to mark their papers; my role is to help them to get “A” mark.
