At the time this article was likely published and upon reading it, you will, by now, be so many years into the twenty-first century. With a positive mindset, you may also have come to believe and experience that it remains an exciting time to go into business as an independent and self-sufficient entrepreneur. Futuring and Foresight, however, needs to be managed circumspectly and with great care and attention to detail.
In order for you to be successful in any new business venture, it would certainly help if you received professional advice along the way. This is new territory for you. So many things to learn about yourself and your new surroundings. You need to talk to so many new and different people. You need to be taught the skill of effective business networking and the art of sealing the deal. While working with a consultative team, you are also learning how to build good relationships and keep them.
The new people you surround yourself with, apart from acting as your mentors and role models, also need to provide you with continuous streams of inspiration. The life of the twenty-first century entrepreneur is not necessarily an easy one. It can be tough and lonely at the top. No-one is pushing you or forcing you to do things that you do not want to do, but a gentle nudge, here and there, in the right direction always seems to help.
You are brimming with ideas but are never quite sure where to find the seeds that will, when properly nurtured, germinate into life-giving sources. There is no such thing as a bad idea. It can work. It just takes time and development to bring it about. And implanting it with the new technologies, still to be learned, takes things further.
