    Do Genes Help You Become An Entrepreneur? 

    There can be much debate as to if genes play a major or minor part in someone becoming an entrepreneur. You could say that entrepreneurs are born but developed. Your innate skills or the skills that you learn have to be nurtured or developed to better enhance or bring out what’s already in you. Some would say that it’s your environment that helps you decide whether or not to become an entrepreneur. Your environments such as home, school, friends, family, work, social, certain events or moments in your life etc….

    • But the question is do genes help?
    • Do genes or environment make you a better entrepreneur or do they just aid in the process?

    You could say that it stems from both and sometimes one over the other. Being an entrepreneur could be learned & developed. But how well you learn stems from your genes. Genes play a big part in how good you become as an entrepreneur. Everyone has a talent but everyone isn’t capable of being an entrepreneur. Genes play a big part in your abilities but you have to have a nurturing, cultivating environment to go along with them. The genes give you your abilities to think, act, do, how well you learn, optimism, determination etc….

    Entrepreneurship is first and foremost a mindset. Your genes play a big part in your mindset. Sometimes hard times or a non-nurturing environment can bring out some great entrepreneurs. Sometimes in situations like that, a person had that entrepreneurial gene already in them. It’s not really an “entrepreneurial gene” per se, but I mean that ability, skills, knowledge, drive, determination, will power etc…, to be an entrepreneur.

    Entrepreneurs possess innate personal qualities that distinguish them from others. Entrepreneurs have certain characteristics, behaviors, values, attitudes etc… That stems from your genes. Many people have that entrepreneurial ability already instilled in them which can be developed even more. For others it could be worked on, developed or learned. But honestly…do you have it in you? It’s not just the environment that you grew up in but also business, school, social & working environments which could help you to uncover what’s already in you. Being a entrepreneur can be great. But becoming an entrepreneur depends on whether you have the skills to be one and if you decide to take on that role. Honestly for an entrepreneur, you either got it or you don’t.

      thank, good writing for similiar Genes with An Entrepreneur

      Most of what you have to say I believe is true but I think you can also be a entrepreneur without having the gene but it’s going to take a lot more work to become the success you want to be.

        Hi Richard,

        It does take a lot of work to become an entrepreneur, especially a great one. Some people have the will power but not the knowledge or skills to go through with it. But don’t you think that genes or your dna determine your abilities? Some people want to be an entrepreneur but they just aren’t cut out for it no matter how much training that they may have or get.

      I’m inclined to agree that you are either born with it or you’re not. I have found that many people looking to start an online business got their knowledge from the school of experience and hard knocks, and almost never from a formal business course.

      i think to some degree it does its like anything some people are born with higher IQ and some with better physical attributes does not mean that just because you are smarter that you can apply your knowledge just that you may have an edge over someone else or others… commercial loans

      I’m with the school that you have to be born with it. Some people just don’t have what it takes to break out of the mold. I used to work at a call center for example. Before I started my business I left the call center to work as a freelance writer. I would still hang out with my old friends from work, and they were still bitching and whining about how they hate their job. I said “guys, look! You can do what I do. There’s other options too, you don’t have to keep working at that crappy job.”

      Their responses? “No, no, now’s not the right time, maybe in a few months once I get some money saved up.” A few months later? Same old complaints. I stopped trying

    Don’t Stifle Creativity 

    Creativity should be one of the many things at the heart of your organization. Running a business or starting one needs creativity. You can turn your creativity into a product, service or operation. You can use creativity to improve on your products, services, work or operations.Consulting Services OF Clerical Business Solutions

    Creativity should be what you or your team rely on to be better than you ever were before. The creative process is an ongoing exercise. If you or your team are not creative enough, get training in this area. These skills can be learned, developed and practiced with the right training. But of all things don’t stifle creativity within your organization. That’s the worst thing for cohesiveness, collaboration & success in any company.

    You can agree to disagree and you can discuss things. But don’t shoot an idea down until you or your team have had plenty of time to think things through and look at a particular idea from all angles. Then make a judgment call as in whether to go forward with it or not.

    In being more creative improve your focus. Develop a laser focus on one idea or a select few at a time. A bad thing for creativity is being overwhelmed with too many ideas at once. Weigh your options, the pros & cons, organize, prioritize  and do a S.W.O.T analysis.

    In S.W.O.T, figure out your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. If you utilize this with with more creative thinking techniques it can help to keep you from feeling overwhelmed. Feeling overwhelmed with info can make anyone frustrated. So you have to calm down and take a different approach.

    If your focus is weak then the results will be weak or useless. The ability to direct your focus is an art. Creative work is the result of clarity and the expansion of focused intent.

    Sometimes looking at an idea from different angles can involve lateral thinking. Lateral thinking can spark creativity & improve other thinking skills. Lateral thinkers can change perceptions then come up with new concepts and ideas. Strategic Planning Services OF Clerical Business Solutions

    Lateral thinking involves the examination of a problem and its possible solutions from all angles. Many times you may get stuck and just feel like you’re not that creative. Sometimes that stems from being stuck in a habitual mode of thinking. Thinking in the same old way of doing things.Your same old thinking styles become automatic as the years go by. Sometimes you have to change old habits to develop new ideas.

    As a CEO, co-worker or manager be open to new ideas and give credit where credit is due. That may seem like a hard task for many, but not acknowledging where the creative ideas or solutions come from can create problems.

    Many times having an adequate solution to a problem may not be the best. With adequate ideas, figure out how to make them better. You need the best creative ideas. Many times the adequate stifles the best. When people have an “OK” solution or idea, they just stop right there and don’t go any further because of doubt. Sometimes you have to move past doubt to be more creative and move forward.

    In Business, Expect The Unexpected 

    In business you have to be cautious & ready to expect the unexpected. The business world just won’t be smooth sailing all the time and things won’t always be just business as usual. Sometimes there’s problems & last minute items on the horizon. So you have to look ahead, think ahead & plan ahead. Many times you have to make sure that every ” i ” is dotted and every ” t ” is crossed, to protect your financial concerns, family, associates and business.

    Strategic Planning Services OF Clerical Business Solutions

    Many times throughout life and business, challenges & changes will occur, whether you want them to or not. This is where strategic planning and crisis management comes into play. With the many changes that will take place, you must make sure that the protection of your business or personal affairs are up to date. You must prepare for unexpected events. Have precautions in place, then you can better handle the unexpected.

    Strategic planning and crisis management can help you plan ahead and make you more capable of handling the unexpected. Many business owners think it won’t happen to them. They seem to put preparing for the unexpected on the back burner, to never think about it again.

    Don’t do that, you need to plan ahead. Not saying that planning ahead will always keep you out of trouble or get you out of every jam. But Strategic pre-planning & crisis management is what you can lean on in your time of need. It will allow you to pull from various resources to help you out in a jam or help your business to thrive in your absence.

    First of all, always, always have an operations manual. Having a clearly defined, organized and properly prepared business operations manual is highly important. That is something that many business owners take for granted and state that they don’t need one “I’m just a small operation, I don’t need that”. I beg to differ, your business needs a sound operations manual no matter the size, big, small or in between.

    In the event of your absence, even for a little while could mean big problems for your business. In your business operations manual you should have important contact info, bank info, passwords, the websites that you use, policies, procedures etc, etc….. If you do this, then someone can step in your shoes and run the business the way that you want them to or at least the way that they should run things in the event of your demise or until you are able to return to your business again.

    If you encounter a situation like the death of a family member, if you end up in the hospital, take a trip and get stuck overseas or in another state, etc…  That can put you out of commission for many days. So if you don’t have things set up before hand then you may have to deal with lost sales , angry, neglected customers, ended relationships and a bad name in the business world. If you could just have someone or several people to step in on your behalf to access your operations manual, check on your clients and other aspects of your business, it can mean the difference between a lost customer and a loyal one.

    Get Proper Insurance. There are many different types of insurance out there, from different states and countries. You should speak to an insurance professional about which ones fit your needs. Make sure that you have insurance that really takes care of your needs in your absence or bad times in business. This is one of the main reasons why you should speak to a professional in the insurance industry. They can give you the advice that you need. Even if you are in the early stages of your business there are ways to protect yourself. You need protection from liability to financial.

    Make sure that your will is up to date ’cause you just never know when your time is up. That’s just a fact of life. By investing some of your time and money, you could protect your business, your associates or your loved ones in the event of your passing.  If you don’t take into consideration this step, then you could end up leaving your loved ones, associates or family destitute or in lawsuits. Then what your family thought was your family business may no longer be a family business. But there’s not much that you can do in your passing but your family, associates or loved ones can. That’s why you need sound business strategies.

    Many long term strategic action steps only require a small investment of your time & money for long term success, protection from failure or hardships.

    I Want To Start My Business Now 

    Congratulations on wanting to start your new business!! Now that you’ve made up your mind to start your new business venture, it’s time to start moving forward. Starting a new business begins with a thought & an action plan, mostly a strategic plan. Where are you going with this?

    Starting a new business is an empowering and uplifting event. But in the startyeswereopen up phase of your business you must proceed with caution, ’cause there are so many things to consider. Start with a strategic business plan to help get you through and you can modify the plan as you go along.

    There have been many successful businesses that have started with little to no pre-planning at all and they have succeeded quite well and they continue to succeed. Sometimes that may not be the case for everyone. I’m not saying don’t go for it and start your business but don’t rush into business too soon without careful thought, planning and preparation.

    There IS NO SUBSTITUTE for a well prepared business plan and there ARE NO SHORTCUTS to creating it!

    Many start-ups start and fail all within the first five years. Many of them fail within the first 6 months to 1 year. You have to take into consideration many aspects of business such as financing, where to start your business, business structure (sole proprietorship, llc, corporation etc…)

    • Also do you really have what it takes to start a business or even operate one?
    • Do you need the help of investors?
    • Have you done your research on what you want to pursue?
    • Do you have the stamina to go through with it all?
    • Will your type of business be successful?
    • Do you have any pre-planning steps?
    • Is there a market for your type of business?

    There is so much to think about when starting and maintaining a business. Starting is one thing but maintenance is the most important.

    I say go for the gusto and start your business but proceed with caution and seek out sound advice preferably from a business consultant. For many, having business consulting advice can lead you into the right direction Sometimes the advice and/ or support from friends, family or associates might not hurt.

    Do you have the support of friends and/ or family members? Not all friends and family members will be supportive of your ideas. Many times you don’t even need their support.

    So then you have to decide whether or not to start with or without their support or even tell them about your new venture. As passionate as entrepreneurs must be to drive start-ups forward, they also know when to cut losses (hint, hint).

    You need to have a good action plan, you know, a good strategy as to how to go about your new business venture, such as your goals, budget and marketing.You need to spend time working on your business strategy action plan. You need sound implementation steps & then put them into action.

    You also need to review what has been achieved so far and make note of the good and bad steps that you have taken. When you make note of things, you can track your progress, you’ll learn from your mistakes and learn to do things better. Now on your mark, get set, go start your business!!!

      Thank you for sharing these very helpful tips. Entrepreneurship starts with a passion. Strategic planning would be very important coupled with action plans.

        Hi Sharon,

        You’re welcome, I’m glad that you found them informative. Many wanna-be entrepreneurs and current business owners tend to want to rush things and never give any consideration to planning or they give too little thought to planning and researching their new business venture.

        They just dive right in and then later on down the line, they wonder what went wrong.

        That’s why I stress to my clients about having strategic plans & goals. You can’t go wrong with strategic planning.

    • Peter Baptiste 10:22 am on July 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I agree with you. I always tell my clients to get themselves a clear vision to set their sails for the shores of wealth and prosperity.

        Hi Peter,

        Many people never develop strategic thinking or planning to help them in their business endeavors. It’s good to have a plan of direction & implementation for what you are trying to accomplish.

    Wise Entrepreneurs Have A Business Plan 

    Starting on a business plan can seem like a daunting task and then you have to get the motivation to get started. But once you get goingbusiness you’ll find that writing the plan is not as tough as it seems. You need to have a plan to give you direction and a firm foundation to start on.

    It’s like driving a car; you need directions in order to get to where you want to go, or you could get lost.

    For a wise entrepreneur, having a business plan is one major step in the right direction. The planning process is the most important, then you have the actual implementation that you have to stick to in order to make it work.

    You prioritize, set your goals, create a mission statement & set implementation steps that’s all in strategic planning. Ask yourself “Where do I see me in five yrs?”

    Business planning is usually conducted when starting a new organization or a new major venture, for example, new product, service or program. Essentially, a business plan is a combination of a marketing plan, strategic plan, operational/ management plan and a financial plan.

    You need to develop a strategy for your business plan. While it may be easy to select a smart-sounding strategy for your plan, I recommend you give a lot of thought to the strategy that will set the course for your business. 

    Sitting down looking at a blank computer screen as you prepare to start your business plan can be daunting. You may want to look at an alternative that can help to make the process a bit easier. Look into hiring a professional such as a strategic business planning service to assist you in your business planning needs.

    A professional business consultant can help you to create a business plan suited for your needs, but you still have to be prepared to think through your business, while working with a consultant and understand the underlying concepts in your business idea.

    The best way to show bankers, venture capitalists, and angel investors that you are worthy of financial support is to show them a great business plan. Make sure that your plan is clear, focused and realistic. Then show them that you have the tools, talent and team to make it happen.

    Your business plan is like your calling card, it will get you in the door where you’ll have to convince investors and loan officers that you can put your plan into action.

    When Trouble Comes Knocking At Your Door 

    Once you get your business up and running, you may feel like you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the good times to come. Well getting a business started is a battle in itself.

Whether it’s a public relations crisis or serious equipment failures etc… At some point in your business you’ll have to deal with some sort of crisis.

    That’s when crisis management comes into play. Crisis management is an important part of managing a business. No business is immune to a crisis. A crisis may hit an organization in the shape of public relations, terrorist attack, industrial accidents, product recall, natural calamity,etc…. Crisis management is closely linked to public relations where a company’s image and pride are at stake.

    You’ve got to have a strategic plan ready, your game face on & be ready to tackle these issues. Having a game plan before hand will help you to see your way through. Just like having a business plan before starting a business, having a crisis management plan before a crisis hits, is the way to go.

    You always need a strategic plan for your business from start up throught daily management. How can you make it without a definitive strategy? Well not very long if you don’t have it together. How you manage your business on a daily basis, along with strategically preplanning for a crisis will determine if you will come out on top in the end.

    Have you ever thought about working with a strategic business management company? If not you should give it a go because a strategic business management company that has your best interest at heart can help you to navigate your way through the rough waters of business development through daily management.

    Now Exactly…Where Are We Going With This? 

    You are on the road to no where & you haven’t got a clue as to what direction to take your project into next? You’ve tried one direction or another. If you

    bigstockphoto_Crossroad_404579want to succeed in your projects or business, you need to come up with some sort of strategic plan. A strategic plan gives you clear direction, focus and keeps you from straying from the path.

    To give direction to your project plans or business, you need to develop a strategic plan. In the developmental & working stages it is very important for you to be realistic.

    It’s important for everyone to work together as a cohesive unit to achieve success. If you are working by yourself, you’ve got to maintain focus, stick to a strategic plan or seek assistance. If you have a team, try to see if you all can come on common ground to work together so that all of you can perform as one.

    It can be hard to take an honest look at how things are going and the ways in which you can improve your project or business outlook. When planning for success your goals should be high, but achievable. With any business or project, you need to a have clear, well defined directions.

    How will you know if you’ve gotten there

    if you don’t know where you’re going?

    Sometimes people do things haphazardly, just hoping that it’ll all work it’s way out. That’s not a good way to do things. Sometimes that can show a lack of preparation, forethought, or not having the ability or skills to accomplish the task at hand. Project management includes developing a strategic project plan that includes:

    • defining and confirming the project goals and objectives
    • identifying tasks and how goals will be achieved
    • quantifying the resources needed
    • determining budgets and timelines for completion

    A big key to project planning & success is IMPLEMENTATION. When you have that follow through with each step and rechecking as you go, you can reach completion and success. It also includes managing the implementation of the project plan, along with operating regular ‘controls’ to ensure that there is accurate and objective information on ‘performance’ relative to the plan, and the mechanisms to implement recovery actions where necessary.

    Everyone should be clear on the roles that they are expected to play. There should be a clearly defined leadership role in managing projects. A leader is responsible for providing leadership, direction, and control for all aspects of the company’s activities in order to ensure effectiveness in organizations and in managing change.

    Watch Out For IRS Scams 

    There are many identity theft schemes that use the IRS name in order to get your personal information. They come to you through unsolicited phone calls, unsolicited emails from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service).  Be careful because you are not talking to the IRS like you may think that you are.

    There have been over 200 complaints about phishing schemes reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center since 2006. These phishing schemes falsely use the IRS name as bait. Now the scammers have new tricks up their sleeves. They use personalized email greetings, the promise of tax rebates, sometimes threats to get you to give up your personal information. Don’t fall for these tactics.

    Don’t give out your personal information to anyone that you have not contacted yourself. If they say that they are the IRS then call the IRS for yourself to verify their claims before you give out your information.

    Don’t fall for these IRS scams:

    Scam # 1. Tax Refund Emails

    The scammers will use the IRS name & logo in an email to fool you. Contact the IRS if you receive one of these emails to verify if the IRS really did send you the email. The IRS name & logo may look real but look closely at the footer on the bottom of the email it will have a copyright 2008, IRS U.S.A. That may look real but it usually is copied and pasted onto the email. Most scams come from overseas and have a lot of misspelled words, incorrect grammer etc…

    Also the subject line may have “Notice From the IRS” and have IRS in the domain name. Some emails will have a link in the email for you to click in order to claim your refund. Don’t click this link.  If you do it will take you to a fake IRS claim form for you to fill out with all of your personal information. They want your social security number or the numbers of your family members, credit card numbers, address and/ or your bank account information.

    That gives a wealth of information to criminals. The scammers will use it for identiy theft or sell it on the black market. Don’t get so curious to click the link in these emails because you just may download malware onto your computer which will hunt for your personal information. “Curiousoty killed the cat”

    The IRS will not use emails to tell you about your refunds or rebates. If you are expecting a refund or rebate check out the IRS, Where’s My Refund Tool to locate your refund.  Report fake emails & phishing scams to phishing@irs.gov .

    Scam # 2. Rebate Phone Calls

    For many years there have been fake phone callers who impersonate IRS employees. They tell you that you can get your rebate early for filing your taxes early. The scammers will ask for your bank account information and if you refuse then they will deny your refund. That’s a lie so don’t fall for it.  The scammers will use current events in American Government to fool you. They are using the recently passed rebate legislation by Congress as a con.

    If you get one of these phone calls just hang up the phone and call the IRS for yourself to check it out.  Your real notification of a rebate will come in a letter from the IRS not an email.  Checks will start coming out in May.  If you want your money direct deposited you must include it in your tax return.

    Scam # 3. Check Verification Phone Calls

    A fake IRS employee calls consumers telling them that the IRS mailed them a check that you haven’t cashed and ask for your bank account information. The IRS will never call you about not cashing a check. The IRS doesn’t mind if you don’t cash it right away. To see what’s happening to your rebate check out the IRS, Where’s My Refund Tool.

    Lesson To Learn :

    The IRS communicates with taxpayers through the U.S. Postal mail. To report fake scams, fake phone calls and emails to phishing@IRS.gov .

    Scam # 4. Audit Emails

    Audit emails is a new scam which will threaten you or scare you into giving up your personal information. They tell you that your refund will not be granted to you because your tax refund is being audited. It also includes a link to a fake form for you to fill out.

    These emails will greet you by your name. They get this information from social networking sites and hacked computers to target their emails.

    The IRS does not send out unsolicited emails or phone calls.
