10 Common Weaknesses of an Entrepreneurs
Multitasking to the extent of Crashing:
Entrepreneurs often have a thousand things going in their mind. Many can switch so rapidly from one to the other that they leave many people confused. The result is that important tasks get short shifted. Relationships often suffer. Don’t let multitasking surpass your focus. Concentrate on your customers’ needs.
Demanding Perfection from all:
Entrepreneurs are perfectionists. Most are never satisfied with their own work, as well as the work of others. This can cause delays and costs in the business. Mostly it will cause friction and frustration in relationships with team members, partners, and customers. The late Steve Jobs survived this imperfection and it made The Apple famous.
Strong convictions bordering on Stubbornness:
The best leaders have strong convictions. When push comes to shove they listen to others, and are willing to compromise. Whatever needs to be done to move the ball forward. In business, if you refuse to compromise and meet the needs of customers, your competitors will replace you. Business is no place for stubbornness.
Not a team player:
Most Entrepreneurs start their business because they perceive an unseen need in the market. Many times they want to be in charge. Most often just don’t like working with others. In time, however, every business requires a team. Giving up control becomes a constant struggle. Some entrepreneurs simply jump ship and start again.
Over-confident to the point of being Egotistical:
Procrastination on certain challenges:
Paranoid reaching delusional proportions:
Work-life balance and workaholic tendencies:
Often emotional and temperamental:
Looks at the world through colored lenses:
Every successful entrepreneur can probably relate to these not-so-positive traits. In many cases, most will attest that without one or more of them, their startup would likely have failed. The question is whether that makes them good traits. Can these traits be learned and nurtured by every young entrepreneur who is striving to be great? I think not. There has to be a better way.
A Simple way to Start:
Networking and always presenting yourself at every opportunity builds a huge circle of potential clients fairly quickly. When presented with an opportunity to meet someone new, every starting Entrepreneur looks for a unique hook that makes them stand out from the crowd.
