7 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Here are 10 things I’ve learned that I think can be helpful to any entrepreneur.

Home Business Entrepreneur as Entrepreneur: how to be successful




The Home Business Entrepreneur (HBE) does not usually hire employees. He or she prefer to work independently. However, they are often good at interpersonal interaction. Therefore, they understand and consider other people’s feelings, including those they have professional relationship with. The most suitable type of business for the HBE is a home-based business. In this business model, customers are either individual clients or other businesses. As a rule, the HBE likes to stick with established contacts rather than switching them often. To that end, he or she will try to maintain and develop their contacts.

Champagne business entrepreneur shares why now is the time to pivot

From a young age, reading books was Kyla Kirkpatrick’s way to escape. She would always read widely – anything from the Encyclopaedia to the Bible would capture her attention.

After graduating with a Commerce and Arts Degree from Melbourne University, Kyla started her professional life in finance and banking, which included a role at the NASDAQ in London. But her story truly began in 2005 – the year Kyla found her passion, her religion, her calling.

“Most people find this hard to believe, but it wasn’t the idea of being able to legitimately drink Champagne for a living that first drew me to the industry,” she reflects. “It was the history and the incredible story of the region.”

“Champagne is this magic liquid that transports you back in time.”

Kyla explains that for some time, she believed that religion might be her avenue. However, she started to realise that what

What Does It Mean to Be an Entrepreneur: Business Ideas for the Internet Age

It’s one of the most used labels in the modern
business era and, because of that, it threatens to lose its true meaning. Of
course, we’re talking about the term “entrepreneur” and what it means to be an
entrepreneur businessman as opposed to a regular, old-fashioned operator owner.

At its core, the two terms are similar, but they are not interchangeable and, often, business owners call themselves entrepreneurs when they really mean that they are owner-operators.

The main difference is the dynamic of movement
or, in other words, entrepreneurs use their varied experiences and expertise
across a wide range of industries rather than focusing on one niche.

Entrepreneurs live for the game and, above
all, yearn for dominance and mastery in multiple fields. It isn’t enough to
simply be successful in one business but rather they

What is the Entrepreneur Mindset?

Imagine yourself a year from now… you’re having a company celebration to mark a milestone that you set.

You’ve got clients, staff, partners and maybe even a friend or two coming to celebrate with you.

Are you in the back chopping the veggies and cheese for the food platters at the event?

No, of course not! You outsourced that task to a caterer.

That’s because you leverage other people’s time and expertise so you can focus on what you do best. That’s the entrepreneur mindset: using other resources, such as people and tools, to get things done faster. Treat yourself like you’re a

The Global Entrepreneur

Executive Summary

Reprint: R0812J

For over a century, start-ups began by focusing on their home markets. More and more, however, are now being born global—chasing opportunities created by distance, learning to manage faraway operations, and hunting for the planet’s best manufacturing locations, brightest talent, most willing investors, and most profitable customers wherever they may be—from day one.

That’s not easy. In his research, Harvard professor Isenberg has found that global start-ups face three challenges. First are the logistical problems and psychic barriers created by distance and by differences in culture, language, education systems, religion, and economic development levels. Even something so basic as accommodating the world’s various workweek schedules can put a strain on a small start-up’s staff. Second is managing the challenges (and opportunities) of context—that is, the different nations’ political, regulatory, judicial, tax, and labor environments. Third, like all new ventures, global start-ups must find a way to
