The May learning event for the Arizona chapter of EO featured a series of seminars designed to help entrepreneurs work more "on" their businesses rather than "in" their businesses.
Brandon Ames, EO Arizona chapter president and president and CEO of Able Information Technologies, Inc. had some great quotes during his presentation on strategic planning.
He pointed out that "entrepreneurs typically have a different mind-set than others." If you've ever been on the hook for an entire company's bills, you know what I mean.
Brandon talked about how "entrepreneurs should quit doing everyone else's job" and stressed that "entrepreneurs should make sure to not deprive company employees of their individual growth."
He also said, "Growing a company is more about growing people than anything else."
I agree. Hopefully I've got enough fertilizer in my system!
