Prospective Employees Need to Have that Entrepreneurial Knack

Dog was finally ready to hire his first employee. He knew there were several different ways to go about doing so but before that he wanted to figure out the perfect type of employee to hire.

For that reason he decided it was best to actually hire a fellow entrepreneur, or at least someone with an entrepreneurs mindset. When he did eventually hire that person he realized having another ‘Dog’ around was the perfect fit.

Focus on Customer Service and Satisfaction

Turkey had just opened his third franchise and things were definitely looking up. After the first month of the franchise being in business he decided to call a meeting with all the owners.

Deal With Your Emotions

Eel had been having a difficult time with his business. There was so much stress in every detail of the job and for that reason…Eel was having serious doubts. When employees had issues he would get angry with them and sulk the rest of the day in his office over it. When his co-owners made comments about his behavior and taking a few days off Eel decided that was the best thing to do. While off on vacation Eel realized that taking everything to heart in his business wasn’t going to help anyone. Getting angry at his staff only hurt their desire to work there. When he came back, Eel kept his emotions in check and his mind strictly on business.

We Did What Everyone Said We Couldn’t Do

Zebra had started his business for one reason – because he had always been told that he couldn’t create the product he wanted. His co-workers never thought it was possible and his boss always downgraded his ideas telling him that instead of thinking up ideas that would never happen that he needed to focus more on the task at hand. So once he left his job and began his own business, that product everyone said would never work was built in under a year.

Your Reputation is Everything

Canary had taken the reins of a business over when the owner made a move that wasn’t in the best interest of customers. There was a team to help her recover but she soon realized the most important part of the business was not what she expected. It wasn’t the product or the procedure necessarily…it was the reputation. Customers would not come to a company with a shoddy reputation for treating clients like disposable income. It took several months to get things back on track with the business and Canary, for most of those months, put her sole focus on setting their reputation back on track.
