Who’s Leading Who In Your Biz?

Leadership Signpost Shows Vision Values Empowerment and EncouragementAre you the bona fide leader in your entrepreneurial business?

Or are circumstances leading you to do what you do every day?

Three years ago this month, I interviewed Denise R. Green about the importance of leadership in a solopreneur business. I believed then, and I still believe, that women who “work alone” need to understand that they are leaders – even though they don’t have a team of employees in their business.

If you have employees in your business, enough said – you already know the importance of being a good leader.

Even if you “work alone,” chances are good that you have an arrangement with someone – a VA or a contractor – to provide services for you. Can you see that you need to lead this person or company to have any chance of that relationship yielding what you want for your business?

If you are a transformational entrepreneur (coach, mentor, consultant, healer), you take on a leadership role every time you sign a new client.

Most importantly, consider this:

You need to lead yourself if you are to have any hope of keeping your business on track and moving it forward!

Today, I encourage you to think about leadership from a personal perspective as well as from a business perspective.

Only you can provide the leadership that will allow you to have a fulfilling personal life while running your business.

You are the only person who can decide which activities to engage in so that you can best serve your family and your community as well as have the leisure time you desire.

If you are a parent, you are providing leadership for your children and setting an example for the type of leader that they can eventually become.

For example:

If you are active in your community, whether or not you take on an “official” leadership role in a neighborhood or municipal organization, or even at your child’s school, you are displaying leadership by participating in something that reaches beyond your immediate environment.

And when you decide to care for yourself – physically, emotionally, and spiritually – you are demonstrating leadership by setting an example that acknowledges the need to be the best you can be for yourself if you are to give your best to others.

You may have never thought of it that way, but that’s what you’re doing!

And when you do think of it that way, it will allow you to make better choices about what you do every day, both personally and professionally.
