If you are one of those people who feel trapped in their nine to five jobs, then you can try to go out in the big bad world and trying your hand as an entrepreneur. However, if you are looking for security then you are looking at the wrong place for your solution because being an entrepreneur involves taking a lot of high risk decisions and is not recommendable for those faint in their hearts and heads (stressed). But, if you have made up your decision after weighing the pros and cons and you are ready to make a commitment, then here are few tips for the entrepreneur in you to follow and find success.
Work a crowd
You read that right, you need to learn to work a crowd. You would have thought that being an entrepreneur means you do not have to interact with people you do not want to handle and people will get work done for you. However, in contrast, there is an increased number of hours you need to spend interacting with people. It might be contractors, clients, employees and the list goes on. You need to learn to be charming and accommodating. That is the best form of self promotion. Apart from that, you can find a place which does business card printing London and have a card made for you. This is a better form of promotion that people give credit to. It is also important to make sure you actually are not boring the crowd with shop talk. Apart from this, it is important to make a good impression on your subject’s partner (but don’t flirt)!
Project a self image, promote yourself but do not come off as a narcissist
This is one of the hardest things to do even as a human being. A small trick to do it is to ask the questions you want to answer to the person. For example, if you want the person you are talking to know you are single, ask them is there a partner in the picture whereby they will be put in the position to ask you the same. That is lame but knowledge is power. However, that can be applied to business. If you want the person you are talking to know you are currently working as a model, you ask them what you work as (professionally not suggestively), whereby they will extend the question to you. You need to make sure you do not have to compromise your morals and self for your work, you will regret it personally and professionally. It is important to act your true self and with decorum. One of the ways to project a strong image of you is to have letterpress business cards instead of those normal cards, which makes a quality impression.
