Meeting the needs of others in Entrepreneurship | Project Heard

As an entrepreneur there are many places we visit in our journey of entrepreneurship. How to build a business plan, strategic planning, setting up systems and processes and the list goes on and on.

There is another journey of entrepreneurship, we all want to reach it. That is SUCCESS! Who goes into business without hoping and planning for SUCCESS. Yes, all the pieces that were mentioned in the first paragraph of this article are necessary to build a successful business. However, there is a personal piece to success for your business and that is building relationships. Those relationships are not only with your employees, customers, or clients; it is relationships with colleagues, other business people and again the list goes on and on. Why is relationships key to success you may be asking?   Let me explain.

Everything in life begins and concludes with relationships. Do you really believe that you can build an empire as a one-person show? Besides, even if we could, who would we have left to celebrate with? You may be in the early stages of your business and feel as though you – a powerhouse– have it all under control. If this is you, then I want to say, “Great! But, it won’t always be this way.” I want to encourage you to know and understand, the day is coming when you have more to be done than what your two hands and one head can handle. The time to start is now. Step out and build relationships, invest in others, and seize every opportunity that makes your heart sing.

Invest in others, how does that have anything to do entrepreneurship? I call it, do unto others as you would want to be treated. It feels good to be encouraged don’t you think? We all need it, especially going through the scary time of building a new business. Part of building relationships is reaching out to encourage others.  We can all find success in encouraging and elevating others. For the person who is taking that leap of faith, to step out into their journey of fulfilling their dreams – bringing their passion to life – more times than not, all they need is just one person to believe in them. (sound like yourself?) Perhaps, you are that one person they are desperately seeking. Perhaps, you are the nudge they need, in order to take them to places they never thought they could go.

What is the result of this most giving effort? It will be returned to you tenfold.
Through the journey of entrepreneurship, I’ve learned:

When you help others achieve what they desire, you will achieve your inner most desires.
Those who often use the words “Me”, “My”, and “I” rarely reach their desired level of success.
The key to building trust is being honest.
When you’re willing to forego your own interests to help someone else, they know you are reliable.
Relationships are your key to unlock the door to your success.
The more allies you possess, the higher in success you will rise.
Man, nor woman, was never meant to walk alone.
Every person has an invisible sign around their neck that reads, “I want to feel important.”
Everyone has something to offer this world, and it’s our responsibility to help them see it.
Everyone is longing to hear the words, “I believe in you.”

As an entrepreneur there are many ways of building meaningful relationships which ultimately will lead to success. This is only one way, but it is a great place to begin.  I challenge you if you have never thought about building relationships as part of success of building a business, that you add this to the list of things that make a business become successful and see where it may lead you.

When people adopt a rescue dog, theres always a lot of uncertainty about how the relationship will progress. Without the benefit of knowing what the dog has experienced in his lifetime, adopters are left to guess and fill in the blanks around what they do know. When my daughter, Stephanie, adopted six-month-old Harry, an adorable Poodle-Bichon-Frise mix, she knew that he had lived with his dominant brother. He was surrendered by a couple who were going through a divorce. They had three small children, and the mom was also going through nursing training full time. And that was it. We could only imagine what Harrys first six months of life had been like. So, together with Stephanie, we spent the first several months getting to know about him, his habits, his likes and dislikes, and his idiosyncrasies. He shied away from larger people. He became sad when he had to go in his crate. He would toss his toys and then run to get them. He dumped the food out of his bowl and only then would eat

Raquel Eatmon Its strange, really: You know youre not the same, nor are the circumstances, but you resist it anyway because its out of the norm, a bit uncomfortable but mostly tough. Starting anew, starting again or starting over -- however you choose to spew it -- can be daunting and definitely overwhelming. But it is a necessity if we want to contribute our talents and abilities to the world. Its necessary if we want to play on a higher level. When I walked away from a television news broadcasting career and started my company, I entered a very different world and things couldnt have been more different. For years, reporting the news of the day was routine and had become normal for me. I was receiving a steady paycheck and benefits, and I built a decent nest egg. Things were like my favorite Holly Hobbie blanket -- good and comfortable (and if you remember Holly Hobbie, congrats, you came from a generation of big hair and cut-out dolls). I didnt fret branding issues because I was
