“If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.” — Abraham Maslow

We see an intense focus with management in all aspects of the entrepreneurial start-up. There is a natural preoccupation with raising money, customer acquisition, the business model, and often the business plan.
Yet in strength, there is also weakness. In the single-minded focus on management or technology, we see neglect of other vital areas that should not be ignored. Successful entrepreneurs must manage, but must be more than a manager.

What has been forgotten? Essentially, great individuals found great companies. It’s Job 1 for entrepreneurs to evolve themselves into a Great Entrepreneur while they are building the business.

This article presents the details underlying another simple truth—that entrepreneurs are unfinished works, individuals who must keep evolving, growing, changing. Great Entrepreneurs are self-aware enough to know their strengths and weaknesses, people follow them because they are transformational leaders, they model the successful, they strive for self-mastery, and do not stop until they becomes wise.

Great companies don’t happen by chance. They don’t sprout up like flowers in the garden of the marketplace. They germinate and are cultivated by exceptional individuals who against all odds succeed.
Remember, success resides within the entrepreneur—but so do the seeds of failure. This article covers the seeds of entrepreneurial success.
