5 Reasons to Hire an Entrepreneur
Coming from my Human Resource background I can remember being told that hiring entrepreneurs can be potentially hazardous because they won’t stay around… To be honest, the reason this is the mindset of most employers is that there is no interest in trying to build a business built towards innovation and potential location independent jobs. Most jobs do not actually require you to be in the office all the time. We clock in hours of work in the office but then work on the computer all day in many cases. But that’s enough on that part of the subject.
When you choose to hire an entrepreneur, you are opening yourself and your business into a growth mindset through innovation. As an entrepreneur, I couldn’t tell you how many ideas I have in a day or a week. These ideas are, of course, not only about one subject but more related to how different things work together to create a full idea or product. Design thinking is the idea of creating a group of different professionals that work towards a project from each of their different focuses. This has the potential to create new and exciting products because you are getting new information from all different mindsets.
Entrepreneurs See the Big Picture.
- Because of the fact that entrepreneurs typically work by themselves, they have to know every part of their business. When they work inside businesses, they are able to see how each part of the business affects the other.
Entrepreneurs Are More Passionate About their Work.
- When an entrepreneur is passionate about their work, they eat, sleep and breathe the idea. As an example, let’s say an entrepreneur loves to network and they are working in a nonprofit trying to fundraise. Since they find joy in talking with new people and learning more about them, they are more willing to work much harder than a person that hates to talk to new people, that almost always transfers into more dollars for the business.
Entrepreneurs Are Willing to Take Risks
- People that have an entrepreneurial mindset tend to grow their business because of the fact that they are more willing to take risks. The most effective part of this ability is that they learn from mistakes and work to pivot projects when something doesn’t quite work out.
Entrepreneurs Understand the Importance of Networking
- Let’s be honest, if you spend any time at all looking for a job, you know how much more successful you are when you know someone. For instance, when I was working on my HR degree, I was searching for internships and decided to talk with one of my professors that own her own consulting firm. That was one of the best things that I could have done for myself because I worked on a few small projects for free with her and then when she took on a larger project by joining a companies HR team, she carved out a position within the business for me to work as well in an area that I enjoy.
Entrepreneurs Know Success is Brief
- Most entrepreneurs are always trying to one-up their previous success. This is also greatly influenced by their ability to take risks. Many entrepreneurs have a mindset that their best is never enough and that can create really great opportunities for growth within your business.
