3 Tips for Entrepreneurs to Stay Healthy July 4, 2012

Ask for Help, Farm Don’t Hunt, Get Out  of your Head

Tip 1 - Don’t get into the “I Have to Do It All Myself” syndrome. Healthy entrepreneurs know when it’s time to reach out and find strategic business alliances or a virtual team to help grow and leverage their business.

Tip 2 - Farm, don’t Hunt. Healthy entrepreneurs learn and practice the skills of intentional networking to go beyond superficial chit chat at Chamber mixers to discover what others need and how they might be complimentary.

Tip 3 - Get out of your head. Healthy entrepreneurs continue to weed out the negative self talk and chatter going on in our brains that tell us “others can’t be trusted” or “I’m not good enough” or “Maybe this business just won’t work”.

35. Don’t Be a Lone Wolf Thanks to: Paula Vigneault of Collaboration Soup.

Avoid burnout and reach out. Decide what you love and do best and find others to do what they are great at. Collaborating is more than just working together. It is an opportunity for co-creativity, sharing the load, and having fun. All great minds don’t think alike, thankfully. They think interdependently.

Tips for Unexpected Places to Find New Customers from 44 business leaders June 2012

33. In My Own Back Yard! Thanks to: Paula Vigneault of Collaboration Soup.

I found a great lead from my neighbor when I was complementing her on her wonderful flower bed. Often our friends, family, and acquaintances are rich sources for potential customers. We may tend to think that since they know what product or service we provide, they will tell everyone they know. However, they need to be reminded occasionally that we would appreciate them spreading the word. That is still the best advertising there is.

Reach out to find other business owners, bloggers, and creative partners that want to open up to strategic partners and leverage their resources and complementary gifts and skills. Go beyond joint venture, affiliates, and networking to form satisfying, strong, lasting collaborations. Optimize your outcomes and co-creative capacity. It’s a great win-win

Effective Leadership Tips from 94 different leaders April 2012

85. Think From the Bottom Up     Thanks to: Paula Vigneault of Collaboration Soup.

Think from the bottom up — top down is dead. Be able to create the conditions that allow the wisdom of your group to shine. Everyone has gifts and they want to share them. Make sure your projects utilize the co-creativity of your group and they will surprise you with their alignment, sense of ownership, and accountability. People don’t just work for money.

88. Lead Like a Duck      Thanks to: Delia Horwitz of Collaboration Soup

Don’t keep looking behind you to see who is following. Focus on what is calling you and where you are going. People will either grow in strength to keep up with you… or discover that they are not a duck. This creates the opportunity for them to find a different direction, or a different leader, better suited to their nature.
