How to be a Purpose Driven Entrepreneur

Discover Your “Why”

Before you can be successful at anything you have to be in tune with what your why is. Your why is your purpose or cause that drives you to what you do as an entrepreneur. If you’re having a hard time discovering your why, ask yourself what fires you up. What are your strengths?

If you are not in tune with your purpose, your path as an entrepreneur will take more twists and turns than what was necessary. Get in tune with your why and keep grinding away on your business.

Be Present, But Plan for the Future

As you know, the past is history and the future is a mystery. All you have control of is right now, which is the present. The present leads to the future. As an entrepreneur, it is important to be in the moment grinding, planning, and leading so that you can grow your business.

Set Deadlines

As an entrepreneur you’re striving to meet goals, both big and small. Dreams and goals come with unstated expiration dates. By definition, an entrepreneur is a person who operates a business or businesses, taking greater than normal risks. In most situations you have a period of time where you can make a decision, close a deal, or invest in another business. With this, you have to set deadlines in order to stay on track to being the best entrepreneur you can be.

Being a purpose driven entrepreneur is easier said than done. It’s a daily struggle to stay in tune with your why, reminding yourself to be present (but to also make solid plans for the future), and to set hard deadlines to move yourself forward.

“Just because you come from a product of failure, that does NOT make you a failure. You determine that.”
