The Entrepreneur's Arsenal: 5 Key Skills for a Thriving Business

Hello, my name is Faith Boone and I'm the founder of Boone Logic. Today I'm going to be talking about different essential skills for entrepreneurs. I am an entrepreneur, I call myself a mompreneur, a solopreneur, a millennial entrepreneur, if you will. But essentially, I am an entrepreneur, I started my own business, and I'm running my own business successfully. I feel that there have been several skills I have learned over the years that have helped me get to where I am today. And I want to share some of those with you.

In these four minutes, I'm only going to share a few of them. But I want you to make sure that you visit our website, for the other five essential skills for entrepreneurs. 

First, before I even go there, I want to say one thing: success is different for everyone. These skills that I'm about to say to you may not be your top five, these are some of my top skills that I feel that I appreciate the most being an entrepreneur and in other entrepreneurs.

#1 Communication

So, number one, communication. And I'm talking about internal and external communication; communicating with your team, and communicating with your audience, with your customers, with your clients. Communication is key when it comes to entrepreneurship. If you don't know how to communicate, you're not going to be able to get your message across about your product, about yourself, about your story, about your business. You really want to know how to effectively communicate. There's a difference between personal communication between you and a friend and communication between you and a potential partner or a collaboration, a collaborator, an influencer, a customer, a client. All those types of communication are different, and it's really important to know how to do each one of them. 

#2 Persistence

Number two is persistence. You have to keep going no matter what. You have to be persistent. If someone tells you no, don't let that be the final no. If you truly believe in what you're doing. 

#3 Resilience

Number three is a word that I have tattooed on my leg, resilience. No matter how much you keep going, you also have to remember that when things are difficult, and you feel really down, you have to learn how to bounce back. You must continue to move on. I want to make sure that you know that I'm saying that it's important to feel, it's important to acknowledge what you're going through. But you also have to realize that the reality of the situation is that the world did not stop no matter what happened to you. So, you're gonna have to get up, and keep going.

#4 Networking

Number four is networking. This is something that not everyone loves to do. Not everyone wants to walk into a room and start talking to people about who they are and what their business is and what they want and what they need and what they can give. Networking is a great way to find potential partnerships and collaborations. Networking may help you hear stories that give you ideas for content and may put you in the right place at the right time to find the right client. So even if you're not, you have to know how important it is for your business to get word of mouth out, which is still one of the top ways to let people know about businesses, and also to get to know other people around you and to be a part of your community.

#5 Adaptability

Number five is adaptability. A lot of people call this flexibility. It doesn't matter if things fall through. It doesn't matter if things don't go your way. That's just how it is. We must figure out how to do what we want to do regardless of how things go. We have to realize that we must keep going. We must be persistent, and we must get up and keep going. Adaptability, flexibility, very important when it comes to being an entrepreneur. You have to be flexible with your time, you have to be flexible with your goals, and with your strategy.

Embrace Change

It can take you out of your comfort zone to feel like things are never fully secure because you have to always be ready to change. Embracing change will get you to the next level. It will help your business grow and it will help you grow as a professional.
