9 Personalities you’ll meet as an Entrepreneur.

It’s no secret that I’ve been an entrepreneur for longer than I’ve been able to spell the word (It’s harder than you think). If I wasn’t Beckett in hand hustling neighbors for their sports cards, or going door-to-door with candy bars, I was most likely hiding somewhere coming up with my next great idea. Or so I thought.
For the last year I’ve officially been grinding away as a self-employed entrepreneur… or as the “nose in the air” entrepreneurs would say, I graduated from a WANTrepreneur, to an entrepreneur.
In doing so, I’ve relied heavily on a network of similar minded people. When you don’t have the comfort of a paycheck every two weeks, it’s necessary to flip every stone you find. You never know which one might have gold under it.
With that mentality, I’ve met A LOT of people. Some good, some bad, some evil, some helpful. It’s important to identify each of these peoples motives, intentions, how you can be of service to them, and more importantly, how they can be of service to you.

The Godfather.

The Connector.

The Dreamer.

The Analyst.

The Hero.

The Healer.

The Clinger.

The Cheerleader.

The Cheshire Cat.


It’s important to meet all of these personality types. Each and every one of them has a learning experience tied to it. Each have their positives, and most have their negatives.
It’s also important to identify which personality your co-workers, or co-entrepreneurs might see you as versus what you see yourself as.
Leave us your thoughts down in the comments. Maybe what personality types you’ve run across that I might not have included in this list, and some positives and negatives to each.

The Business Owner's Guide To

Better Decision Making

As a business owner you are inherently a decision maker and it’s a function of your job to make consistently good decisions in critical moments. But no two decisions are exactly same. Having a deep understanding of how decisions are made and having the tools to create consistent decision making frameworks are necessary to make more rapid and impactful decisions on a daily basis.
