An excerpt from the book Launch Your Inner Entrepreneur, by Charlene Walters, MBA, PhD. Charlene is an entrepreneurship coach, branding mentor and speaker.
Becoming a successful entrepreneur is all about working on and developing an entrepreneurial attitude by making certain shifts in the way that you think. A mindset shift related to taking action will be central to your success in terms of not only having the confidence to get your business off the ground, but also in regard to what you’ll need to do every single day to keep moving your business forward.
Taking action is a key component of an entrepreneurial mindset. Thriving business owners are doers, not merely dreamers (although I do encourage you to aim high).
Being an effective founder, however, is not just about the things that you must do but also about the things you should avoid, and understanding this distinction is another vital aspect of your entrepreneurial mindset shift.
