Are You a Freelancer, Business Owner, or an Entrepreneur?

What is the difference between a freelancer, business owner, and an entrepreneur?  Sometimes these terms are used interchangeably.  They are not all the same.  In this podcast we define the difference between the three and help you determine which of these comes naturally to you.  All three bring value and one is not better than the other.  In this podcast, we also talk about some of the myths that surround freelancers, business owners, and entrepreneurs.

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The definition of freelancers, business owners, and entrepreneurs and how you can identify which of these comes naturally to you
  • What distinguishes a freelancer from an entrepreneur and a business owner from an entrepreneur
  • Why we need entrepreneurs
  • Why it might make more sense for you to focus on the Fortune 5,000,000 instead of the Fortune 500

 

In this episode, we’ll challenge you to:

  • Figure out which of these three roles come naturally to you and what that means
  • Embrace the Fortune 5,000,000 and not just the Fortune 500

Why Lottery Winners Go Broke

You might be running your business just like the person who bought a lottery ticket.  You’re hoping that you’ll hit the jackpot one day and sell out.  When it comes to your business, both winners and losers have the same goals, but winners have systems that help them get there instead of relying on luck or chance.  We talk about why setting up systems is more important than setting goals and how systems help you build a health and successful business.   

   

In this episode, we’ll share:  

  • Why people who win the lottery, just like entrepreneurs who sell their business, are often unhappy  
  • The concept of Entrepreneurial Poverty that some entrepreneurs are stuck in and unhappy 
  • The importance of systems to run a healthy business and how it can differentiate winners from losers  
  • The difference between systems and goals and why systems have more to do with your success  
  • The 3 main areas of your business that should have systems: Sales and Marketing, Administration and Finance, and Operations and Service Delivery  
  • Why you should apply a systems approach to both your personal and professional life

Some entrepreneurs are wildly successful (which doesn’t mean they have a big business necessarily) and we discuss what they’re doing different than the entrepreneurs aren’t as successful.  We focus on the importance of making small, incremental improvements over time and the significant impact it can have on your life and business.
