Startup Savant spent an entire year interviewing entrepreneurs from different industries, locations and goals. IBE’s Founder and President, Tatiana J Whytelord shared her thoughts with them and was recently featured in their best of article.
“Like every other entrepreneur, I am challenged by a) the number of ideas I have every single day, b) the very rapid growth we are facing now, and c) cash flow!
Funnily enough, I honestly believe that you face these issues even when your company is worth billions of dollars with a massive structure. Perhaps as an entrepreneur, you face them more frequently or at least more times. In my case, fortunately I have a CEO who is a level headed person with an innate ability to see which of my ideas will never see the light of day and the honesty to tell me so, he also has a keen operational eye which means we are always one step ahead of the curve.
This has proven to be the most invaluable point in facing the growth challenge. So my advice to any entrepreneur is and has always been:
Surround themselves with people who compliment their personalities and skill sets;
Anticipate what is coming;
Have a plan A and a plan B but be prepared to suddenly veer to a drastically different plan C. Like I said, the art of survival!”
