Create a plan to manage and regulate your business
990_ 3/31/11 - People are the source of all problems and people are the source of all solutions, we've heard Larry say this often. Today we're speaking with Brian Tsuchiya and we're talking about entrepreneurial personality types. Brian is the founder of Startup Guru, he's worked with many organizations of different sizes, seen a lot of successes and he's learned a lot about people along the way. And Brian adds, "To start, I've learned a lot about myself. To understand others, the lens always reflects back to you and what type you are." Roughly five years ago, as an entrepreneur, Brian was thinking about this and the things in his life and he named these four personality types. He came up with the Dreamer, Architect, Builder and the Cultivator. The Dreamer: This is where the idea for a business is born. The dream is the culmination of the entrepreneur’s life experiences and passions. The Architect: This stage is where the dream is interpreted into a business model which becomes the blueprint of the venture. The Dreamer typically does not make a good Architect. The Builder: This is the stage where the dream can first become reality. The Builder then literally turns the dream into reality. We are now at a critical juncture of the venture. The Cultivator: This is the growth stage. Once the business is launched the Cultivator’s primary role is to guide the business through the various levels of growth. Brian points out, “In creating and running our businesses, we have natural talents that at times reveal our brilliance. With this brilliance, also come our blind spots that are caused by our unconscious patterns or temperament. Neither type is superior to the other. Each dominant type has both opportunities to display their brilliance and they will also reveal their blind spots. Our main goal is to help entrepreneurs become aware of what makes them brilliant and encourage them to put their energy and focus into those areas. We’re also aware of how important it is to be conscious of our blind spots so we can create a plan to manage and regulate these less developed traits. This plan does not include becoming an expert in all of our various weaknesses." Listen to Brian's interview, take notes and visit the links below...
