The number 1 reason for most entrepreneurial failures

I’ve been a partner in companies that had hordes of independent distributor/entrepreneurs, many with little previous experience. Some of them went on to make mega bucks and run their own large companies, some of them because of the initial training they got from us.

But many failed. It was heartbreaking. It was like losing the battle then winning the war. Even in victory the casualties can be massive. In business most of them needlessly. It needn’t happen to you, but you must know how to protect yourself.

Why so many failures? Any entrepreneurial expert will have their own perspective on this, and likely we’d all be right. There are many good reasons.

Number one for me, both because it happened to me and then because I’ve counseled so many others, is rejection. I failed and restarted so often that I wrote a book on it! Now there’s an expert for you.

Most budding entrepreneurs know there will be some failure and disappointments along the way, but few are mentally prepared for what can happen in the beginning.

Every sales professional will tell you right off it’s that dreaded word, “NO.” Even if it’s not said outright it’s still a rejection. While professionals learn how to get through rejections, which makes them professionals, they never like it. Who does?

But, you might ask, what if you’re an entrepreneur but not in sales?

The Big Lie

If anyone tries to tell you that you don’t have to sell anything in this or that opportunity, walk. They lie!

Everyone, and I mean everyone is in sales. We are always selling something, if nothing more than to convince others to listen to us, to like us, to respect us, to see our point of view, etc.

Even the owner of a corner sandwich shop is selling. Either through good will, customer service, effective signage, etc. Have I sold you on that concept yet?

If you use social media such as Facebook, Linkedin, or Twitter as tools, and you should, you’re “selling” by using the best persuasion techniques available to you.

Did you realize that actors must sell to get parts. They use their charm and good selling practices to convince producers and casting directors to hire them. Many with less talent advance over the more talented precisely because of their ability to sell. When I was in show biz I saw this close up many times.

Anyone can learn to sell, persuade, and convince, it’s not that big of a deal. Getting through the learning curve is the trick. Failure’s not fatal to your business, quitting is.

How a negative economy can boost your opportunities for success

Even in this negative, headline rich, horrid economy, the fields of potential opportunities are green and lushly filled with promise. The first challenge is sorting through all the choices. And, of course, sorting through all the lies.

Even in the Great Depression more millionaires came out the other side than had ever been before. They saw opportunities where others only saw brick walls blocking possibilities. They bought into the negative news and turned off their creativity to do little more than just survive.

Then as now the reality was stark and absolutely for real. Especially for those who fail to adapt. All brick walls to possibilities are built mentally in an instant. Here’s how to tear them down.
