I Don’t Have Time!

Posted by gavinmills on November 23, 2012

What does this really mean?

I had a great discussion this morning with a group of Entrepreneurs, and Time was the hot topic today.

You see, when you really analyze it (and be honest here guys ‘coz you’re looking in the mirror now) – is it that you really don’t have the time, or is it more a matter of how do you manage your own time? And I’m the first to admit that, at least for me, it’s ALWAYS a question of how I manage my time. So what’s your take on this?…

Are You Aiding & Abetting E-Myths?

Posted by gavinmills on September 30, 2012

We are going to embark upon a journey through the world of e-myths and debunk them to help you avoid falling into the e-myth trap.

First, let’s take a minute to talk about what an e-myth is. An entrepreneurial myth, or e-myth, is an assumption that anyone can succeed at business with:

  • Desire
  • Some capital
  • Projected a targeted profit

This sounds great, but it just not realistic. Think of starting a business as a marathon. Sure, everyone starts out of the gate at record pace, but after a few miles people start slowing and some drop out entirely. Building a successful business takes stamina and agility.

The reality is that there are many different facets to a successful business and none of them can be ignored if you plan to find success.

Let’s take a minute to talk about entrepreneurial seizure. This defines the roller coaster of emotions that comes with starting, nurturing and the potential failure of a business.

The emotions that occur, in order, are:

  • Exhilaration
  • Exhaustion
  • Despair
  • Sense of self-loss

This is usually caused by the e-myths and assumptions we talked about. You can get your hopes so high on instant success that even the smallest lag can send you into an emotional tailspin. This is also brought on by the stark realization that you can’t do it all and will need help in the areas where you don’t have the knowledge. Now, faced with limited choices you may feel like you need to back out and hide, but don’t do this!
