The Rise To The Top: Entertaining, Energizing and Empowering Entrepreneurs



I would argue that YES there are major differences between a small business owner and entrepreneur. One of the major ones is thinking in terms of systems. Can you eliminate yourself from your business system and it still runs profitably?

And by elimination, I don’t mean wiping yourself off the face of the earth especially since you are probably the “face” of your business. I’m small-businessreferring to day-to-day operations. If you take a trip to outer-Mongolia or take the day off to watch your daughter’s soccer game, does your business crumble without you?

For many small business owners (the flower shop, the candy store, the pizza parlor) the answer may be NO WAY, NO HOW!
How about these entrepreneurs?

If Tim Ferriss takes one of his many vacations, is The Four Hour Workweek still sold in bookstores throughout the world? YES!

If Tony Hsieh from Zappos decides to take a month off, does Zappos continue to run like a well-oiled machine? YES!

Unfortunately Steve Jobs from Apple was recently sick. Did Apple continue to run without their charismatic leader? Absolutely.
Can the pizza parlor owner transform from a small business owner to an entrepreneur? Absolutely. Time to create a system!

Are you scalable or stuck in your business?

What are some more differences between an entrepreneur and a small business owner?

Let us know below.
