Join Me for this Complimentary Teleclass: The Entrepreneurial Curse & How to Avoid It
Written by Lisa Montanaro | July 17, 2013

entrpreneurial_curseAre you a newer entrepreneur and notice that owning a business is harder than you thought it would be? Whether you are an existing business owner or thinking of starting a business, you may have noticed that being an entrepreneur is both rewarding and frustrating.

Why? The answer is the Entrepreneurial Curse!

What’s the Entrepreneurial Curse?

I’ll let you in on a little secret… it’s two sides of the same coin: The greatest thing about owning your own business is that you are your own boss. At the same time, the hardest thing about owning your own business is . . . you are your own boss! In order to avoid this curse, learning exactly what it takes to be a successful business owner is key — which “hats” you wear best, and how to juggle all of the demands of entrepreneurship and still thrive.

I’d love to share some core business principles with you based on my own business success, and that of the entrepreneurial clients I have been privileged to work with as a business consultant/trainer.

yeaJoin me for this enlightening (and complimentary!) teleclass where we will discuss what it takes to be a successful business owner and how to avoid (and overcome!) the “Entrepreneurial Curse.” I want you to be able to enjoy the freedom, flexibility and profitability that business ownership brings without getting caught in the trap of wearing all of the hats at the same time, and failing to excel at any one of them.

This teleclass is open to all business owners, but is especially targeted at the newer entrepreneur in the first few years of business, or emerging entrepreneurs that are hoping to make their dream of owning a business a reality.

I’d love you to join me for a Complimentary Teleclass to guide Newer Business Owners!

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
