Entrepreneurs always want to learn
One of the most important characteristics of an entrepreneur is curiosity. Entrepreneurs always want to learn something new, but only current and relevant things. You often simply don't have the time to know everything about everything. A good book can help you on your way and asking your question to Google also gives a lot of results.
Just look at how outdated relevant search results are when you're looking for something in Google. Often the articles that come up first are 2 years or older. This is not desirable if you want to stay up to date. So call professionals on TheONE.
Together we know everything about everything
Of course you want the best advice or the best answer to your question. That's why there are so many different consultants, mentors and entrepreneurs who are available 24 hours a day. What one person does not know, the other can answer. That's why you pay by the minute for the best tips and advice entrepreneurs can give you.
A question can be answered very quickly and then you never pay too much. Think, for example, of legal advice. Usually you pay a high hourly rate. But what if you have a question about how to formulate a certain sentence in a contract? Sometimes even a trainee lawyer can help you with that.
Frequently asked questions by entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs very often ask the same type of questions. This is normal because these subjects occur within every type of company. The only difference is that the answer depends on the situation of the company. Topics where entrepreneurs have most questions about are:
- Questions about how to become successful
- Questions about timing
- Questions about teams and employees
- Questions about new or existing ideas
- Questions about new or existing business models
- Questions about financing or investors
How does an idea become successful
Perhaps the most important question is how your idea or company has the best chance of success. IdeaLab researched this by investigating 200 startups. The outcome of the study was surprising. As an investor, the researchers believed prior to the research that the team and idea would be important. Many entrepreneurs think that it depends on the funding. What appears are the following figures:
The degree of influence on the success of an idea or company
- 42% impact - Timing
- 32% influence - Team
- 28% influence - Idea
- 24% influence- Earn model
- 14% influence - Funding
Brandon Leibel - Co-Founder of Sand Cloud once said:
By not having any funding, you discover and do things that you would never have thought of otherwise. These are the things and lessons that are not for sale for money.
