The future belongs to the Entrepreneur...
Today the smart people know that the traditional job and career style that we have become accustomed to will soon come to an end. We see that the long time career with years of service and job security followed by a nice pension and easy retirement are mostly hanging on from past times. Already it is estimated that over 50 million good folks in the USA alone are seeking to make it in the "gig economy," and more and more our life will be filled, not with a career, but with a long series of projects, contracts, and assignments. The phenomenon will spread, and already is.
Today the future belongs to the risk taker, the freelancer, the small business owner and most importantly to the creative entrepreneur. But the question for all of those who seek a better position, and may want to leave a dysfunctional and hurtful "job situation" is, "Do I have what it takes" to be a successful entrepreneur. And for many people of faith and good will this change of vocation is one that they run by their faith and beliefs in a God who cares about their life and future.
To these millions of people Stan Hustad, long-time teacher, broadcaster, business performance coach, mentor, and a man of faith, takes about 90 minutes to challenge, not jus teach you, about what it might be like to be an entrepreneur.
He has positions and beliefs which he shares, but does not shove, and seeks to help you to form your own beliefs and directions; and then make good decisions about whether you, with "God's grace," should seek to live the life of an entrepreneur. You will learn a lot about life, business, marketing, personal selling and the road to true success.
You will get your first lesson in Entrepreneurial marketing. I will help you to understand why this is a short course of one and half hour, but that it takes time to reflect and think on your own. The way the course works will be clear, and you can decide what kind of time and intensity you are going to give to my show. I will be open to questions and seek to be a challenger as well as a teacher.
Here I continue to give you some entrepreneur marketing lessons. So just keep listening for these little marketing and selling tips that I seek to keep throwing out from time to time. But the major theme of this part of the course is the power of making things. Animals by instinct make nests and resting places. God and human beings are in the business of creating things. Here I challenge you to understand that the fun and frustration of the life of the entrepreneur is that it is a life of creativity and creation.. This is one of the primary challenges and joys of seeking to live your life as a entrepreneur and as a creator.
In this lesson I introduce you to one of the most powerful questions in the world of work and often in life. So listen carefully and find the questions that help bring focus, clarity, and energy into your efforts. Then we take you into the dreaded world of fear. Indeed fear kills everything, and the life of the entrepreneur is one where you deal with fighting your fears and seeking to be brave in the midst of adversity and sometimes opposition. And fighting fear may require things of the Spirit, indeed things that are transcendent. That's the God deal.
Here i take you right to the core of a number of the primary questions and challenges that will come to you in being an entrepreneur. First of all you will realize that before people buy your services and your stuff... they have to buy you. Because of that you must decide on the image, the persona ,and performance you are going to project and put into the marketplace. Do it right and do it well... Image is the first thing..
Then the key issue is to decide what besides you are you going to bring into the global and local marketplace that people will value and give you money... Indeed you have to know what it is you offer and why people should give you money for what you do and provide.
This course is like a show because all business and all education is essentially show business. Remember that! here then is a time for the intermission and to get a preview of what is ahead and time for you to ask, "what is clearer to you now?"
in this show i teach you a vital but often neglected part of the Entrepreneurial lifestyle. You will have to become a performer. all business is show business. Today "dead tree marketing is dead" and you have to gain skills in how to perform, how to present, how to persuade ,and how to create a delightful experience for potential clients and customers. here i just begin, because there is much more to learn, to begin to help you start to become a performer as part of being an entrepreneur.
Now we are really rolling into defining and detailing what difference it is going to make for you to be a Spirit-led entrepreneur. This my personal acronym, and I share it with you. You want to be an ACE, which usually mean you are the top card, the best, the winner in what you do. So take the ten minutes to find out what ACE stands for and what you will have to do to the "ace' the test for bing an Entrepreneur.
Now you will find yourself in a finale, and a challenge to decide. And then to take your first actions. Remember a Stan Hustad course is not just about learning. Our courses are to also to challenge you to change. So here i take a few closing minutes to challenge and encourage and to bless you!
This will take one minute to tell you that this class is never over. Your investment will entitle you to lots of great teaching and learning about being an Entrepreneur, yet to come. I wish you all the best and hope to see you back again.
