Why do Entrepreneurs Pick Marketing Firms

The tide turns from time to time - that's a fact. When a business is doing incredibly well, most seasoned entrepreneurs know that some months will follow that are not living up to their expectations.

The untethered soul of your business

Your brand is what someone thinks of your business. It encompasses every aspect of the brand experience, before, during and after an interaction. 

The soul of your business is so much more. It's living and breathing every single second inside every single person who works for you and determines the energy that people get when they interact with your business, and your people.

Live With Passion: Remembering 1st LT Lee

There are times in one’s own life that stick out as defining moments that shape who we are, the same way a massive flood can change the Earth’s landscape by carving it into pieces and destroying what was once there.

On April 29th of this year, I received a call from an old Army friend of mine that no one was expecting. He called and told us that Weston Lee had been hit by an IED and passed away the night before.

Have you ever wondered what it is like getting to first base, ready for the second base but never quite making the home run you hoped for?

As a female entrepreneur, I have big goals, and my dreams are not only something I think about often, I have carefully strategized the execution of a plan to achieve each and every dream I have had for myself.

The Mind of An Entrepreneur

Marketing Eye speaks to hundreds of entrepreneurs seeking to grow their businesses every year. Some entrepreneurs are able to achieve growth successfully, and this is because they have a business plan, goals, and a marketing strategy in place. Even though the people we speak with have good intentions, they seem to rely more on luck than a strategic approach. 

Then of course, there are the dreamers who do nothing more than talk about their aspirations and never act on their aspirations. Being an entrepreneur takes a lot of fixed determination, bravery, and thick skin. There are a lot of people that want to see you fail and think that you can do it. Prove them wrong! For an entrepreneur, that's all part of the parcel, and what motivates us to actually deliver upon what may have first started out as just a good idea.

Below are a few things that motivate entrepreneurs to start their own business.

Yesterday I was bursting at the seams. Life couldn't get much better. I had a few meetings and they went so well, that I literally couldn't stop smiling and that feeling deep inside was one that I haven't felt in a long time.

10 big mistakes entrepreneurs make

If you are an entrepreneur, and not a someone who thinks that you are always right, then you would realize just how many mistakes you make - usually on a daily basis.

We are human and mostly we shrug it off and learn from them.

Entrepreneurs are renowned for making mistakes because when most of us started, there were no courses on how to be an entrepreneur, and mentorship was harder to come by then it is today.

10 Mistakes that many entrepreneurs make:

I sat in my office and looked up on the wall. 

As I read each of my team members three (3) goals that each of them wrote down for the next two (2) years - I felt proud. Of the three, each of them have one crossed off as of February 1, 2014. What an achievement! I feel blessed that as a team, we were able to achieve this for them and they did it all within 3 months.

Then I looked at mine.

I can't sleep. Too much is going through my mind. I toss and turn all night long and wake up in the wee hours desperate to fall back asleep again, but not able to because I am thinking too much.

It's a problem that many small business owners face time and time again. I am no different.
