An underlying critical element to any successful business is talent. The people behind your logo fuel the organization, cultivating company culture and energy in the process. And the right culture and energy bring with it excitement, eagerness to succeed and growth. When I think back on my years in retail and operations, I can’t help but recall the team members who made a difference—they were the driving force of my company. To set these people up for success, I employed a few ground rules that have proved successful in creating an environment that drives productivity, enthusiasm and loyalty.
The entrepreneurial journey can begin in the most unexpected of ways. We spoke with EO New York member and president of 4PM Events, who discovered her entrepreneurial spirit after a chance encounter with a friend’s colleague, to learn about the events industry and how she started her companies.

Writing procedural documentation for your business may rank down there with “reading the dictionary” on your list of things to do, but I assure you, it’s not only a necessary task—it’s an important one if you plan on selling your company at any point in the future.

When first setting up a company, I believe that it is the entrepreneur’s responsibility to hire the best people for their business. All too often, however, mistakes are made during the hiring process, proving that talent-spotting is in itself a talent that can be difficult to master.

Ever since I had a poster of that white Lamborghini Countach on my wall as a kid I’ve always been a huge car fan.
It wasn’t until I became an entrepreneur that I decided to have “idea sex”, and mash-up my two big passions. So Entrepreneurs in Cars was born.
Many things in my life are energy vampires, but spending time around fast cars, and successful entrepreneurs isn’t, it recharges me, and some of the best times I had last year was filming episodes of entrepreneurs in cars.
The concept is simple, put the entrepreneur in the passenger seat of their own car, and record a video interview allowing them to tell their story.

Eliminate the Guilt!
Simply put, there just isn’t time for everything, and you have to stop feeling guilty about that. I learned early on that the work/life balance is a myth. It’s not realistic to expect to create the perfect balance between being a CEO and a parent. There will be certain days when you just have to work extra, and there will be other days when you get to spend those extra hours with your kids. Do not feel guilty if every day isn’t always a 50/50 split. Instead, make an effort to focus on your kids when you are with them and focus on the job when you are at work.
