- Eggs over easy.
- Eggs over medium.
- Eggs over hard.
- Scrambled is better?
Entrepreneurs constantly face daunting challenges. Hopefully not about breakfast!
There isn’t a day that goes by that an entrepreneur isn’t faced with making a business decision that may offend some and please others. The decision usually is made in the company’s best interest because it is the survival of the business that will perpetuate the very existence of that business and solidify the jobs for workers.
Of course consideration must be given to individual team players as well but overall the leader must know what the overall optimal decision must be and one must toughen the skin so to speak for the betterment of the business. And, sometimes that may be an unpopular decision but a fair and just one as well.
Too often an entrepreneur will find himself in a lonely place fending off the wolves that may want to harm his company. He must be steadfast and certain in his decision making and not waver. His workers must see him as a pillar of strength and above human frailties because it is he that they rely upon to run the business smoothly and profitably in order to secure their jobs.
Especially in smaller companies, the entrepreneur is the sole executive with no one else to turn for advice or guidance. This executive must show strength and determination. As the leader of this company one must not hesitate nor waver in their determination less his subordinates become insecure in their jobs and loose trust their leader.
The result of confused or threatened employees is low morale and reduced or shoddy production-one to avoid at all cost.
So when one needs reassurance and support and he is at the top, where does he go to get support?
It can be very lonely at the top but, if one has complete faith, decisiveness and self assurance, being lonely at the top one can experience a very peaceful existence!
