Confessions of a Serial Entrepreneur- Part 1

Part 1:  The Introvert:

serial-killer-

Here is what I hear on the news: The USA economy is in recovery!

Yet, every day I encounter another story of business failure. The economy, on its way to recovery, is consuming businesses for breakfast lunch and dinner.

While most entrepreneurs, listen to these stories and move on, we know that “Entrepreneurial life is living between fortune and fame; hovering between failure and distraction.”

Deep within my core, there exists a self-limiting belief. I have made business mistakes, each slip left me with a scratch or a small blemish on the outside, but with a life-time mark on the inside. Each slip took a small piece of my soul, added a layer to my mental strength and ultimately changed my DNA.  We falter, we change and we move on.

Happiness, Frustration, Insecurity, Work addiction, Sleep disorders, Relationships, Bad eating habits, A restricted social life…. and Glory are all part of entrepreneurial life. And all of that has to be explained to my better half.

Sounds like the making of a good joke, Doesn’t it? 

I ask my physician – If work is healthy why don’t doctors prescribe it to their patients? Still, I will not change this lifestyle for anything. If I were able to restart my life today, I would choose the entrepreneurial path all over again. Can this be considered masochism? Perhaps.  Or maybe just a quest for adventure and self-discovery.

Each morning I wake up realizing that there is more opportunity today than any time in the history of business. Communication is easy, accessible and inexpensive. The Internet allows access to thousands, if not millions of people who are online every hour of the day. I know I can’t reach all of them, but the opportunity to reach small percentage is mind-blogging.

But opportunity comes with its better-half: challenge. Just like the relationship with the significant other.

In a face-to-face meeting, network event or even tradeshow I can approach, talk to, and now convert percentage of participants using one of my business associates secret weapon: Gobiggi connect app that I recently downloaded. Yet, converting clients on the internet is a challenge.

Sometime I feel as if my natural behavior leads me to bypass the internet opportunity and dodge the challenge. Daniella, my therapist/coach says the possibility of failure is the reason I walk away from trying or even considering the internet challenge.  We thrive on events that release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. We tent to dodge challenges and opportunities fearing failure and bad feeling that come with it.

Network events makes you feel good, Daniella says. Meeting people and establishing successful connections event if it is because your new app (Gobiggi Connect)  leaves a smile on your face, and (in her words) encourages you to attend more and more events. The ‘internet unknown part’ and the risk of failure is good reason for you, and probably many other to walk away from a great opportunity.

You fear making success.. your habit. Act younger, use your mature experience and risk less. You have to adopt and move forward. She said.

Daniella made it easy for me to understand how the ‘Internet challenge’ convince me that “I can survive without the internet” (until now). And anyway, my clients (I told myself) “don’t come from the internet”. Did you ever whisper this to yourself? Or I am alone here?

But deep-down I knew the truth. From reading mail, to paying bills; from researching, and making purchases to socializing, the internet had become an integral part of my daily life—-and most likely, my client’s life. Despite the fact that I am doing well with my networking, I know that no one company made or will make millions by attending networking events.

Smart companies attract clients utilizing the power and reach of the internet. They send their representatives to networking events to deepen the community relations. And here I am ignoring or even dodging the internet opportunity?
