The Secrets to Becoming a Successful Creative Entrepreneur: JJK Secrets #19-21

Hello Creative Entrepreneurs!

Welcome to the e-class on Creativity & Entrepreneurship: The Creative Evolution of an Intellectual Property?

Let's start with the thought for the day:

When you find the destiny for which you were born, all you need to bring is your courage, your honor and your commitment! From the movie North and South.

I love this quote! It says it all. It's simply profound and applies to all my students that read my books, take my tele-seminars or attend my all-day seminars.

My purpose is to inspire and teach a holistic, successful approach to creativity and entrepreneurship.

I share this quote because it truly applies to my approach to teaching. My students desire to find their purpose and destiny in life, or clarify it even more.

They brought this desire to the course, along with tremendous trust, courage, a commitment to learn and grow, and I hope always with honourable intentions!

Being of service to your authentic self, your child-spirit and then sharing it with the world by being of service to others through your entrepreneurial ventures is what life is all about!

One doesn't need a fancy office, a briefcase or a truck load of money to start?it was all within YOU....your courage, your honor and your commitment!

The rest will follow suit if you strive hard and stay focused!

I have *24 JJK Secrets to Becoming a Successful Creative Entrepreneur and I would like to share with you Secrets 19, 20 & 21.

19. Nineteenth Secret: Make a file for ALL your ideas! Label it: "My Creative Ideas" or use your journal and reserve a number of pages in the back just for your creative ideas.

Creating a new enterprise is like building a puzzle-you find a piece here, you find a piece there. And somehow it all fits together. Some pieces might not fit so just set them aside. You may use them later or in another project!

I have a file just on ideas that come to me. Rather you implement them or not, is not important. You will have fun going back and reviewing it from time to time.

Sometimes I go back and say: "Wow what a great idea!" or "It's time to start that project now!" Or you might stumble across an idea you wrote down and thought it was fantastic at the time and then laugh and say: "what in the world was I thinking?"

Remember these are YOU ideas! YOUR intellectual properties!

20. Twentieth Secret: Build a personal support team! Build friendships and relationships in all areas of business and especially those who share YOUR vision!

Remember in the 12th secret I said study the masters. Now reach out to some of them and pick their brains. And in time you may ask some of these experts to set on your board of directors. Find people who believe in you and your dream! Find people who you can trust and really believes in YOU! All it takes is ONE GOOD sounding board.

Avoid negative people and don't cast your pearls before swine!

Now take this a step further and build a professional dream team! Carefully select partners and employee who have integrity, are loyal and are hard workers and good team players! Remember this person is representing YOU and YOUR name and product out in the world. Exercise due diligence when taking on new partners or employees.

21. Twenty First Secret: Keep a rolodex of everyone you talk to! Always ask their names, the name of the secretary, receptionist, etc., or whomever you speak to. Then asked their title.

Remember them and they will remember you! Send them a thank you card or email. Let them know how they helped you. They will remember you for this. They might not remember your idea, but I assure you they will remember you and your politeness. You become not just a statistic, but a real person to them.

If they really help you send them flowers or take them to lunch...you must acknowledge their support and kindness.

Sometimes it may be the secretary or receptionist who can make or break a deal or an opportunity for you. Always demonstrate good business and social etiquette.

Live & Love Your Passions!
