3 Things Getting in the Way of Your Successful Business

Are you a natural entrepreneur?

A new business needs active, determined energy to move it forward—an energy that comes naturally to an active, reactive Type 3 person in my Energy Profiling System.

Type 3′s are constantly moving forward, creating results, making things happen. So, they generally make good entrepreneurs. Their energy gets big things going, like new businesses.

But can that entrepreneurial energy backfire?

Check out three ways that a Type 3′s swift, reactive energy can be their greatest asset…or a potential business challenge. And then watch the video to hear details on how to manage these tendencies and hone your natural energy in a supportive way. Do you see yourself in any of these statements?

  • You’re good at putting projects in motion, but…

            …you might start so many that you burn out or lose interest.

  • You’re good at turning an idea into action, but…

           …you might not gather important details first to help you better weigh risk.

  • You’re good at taking charge of a new venture, but…

          …you might come across as always wanting to be in charge or micromanage your team.

Ready to make your team more efficient and your business even more prolific? Watch the video…

What do you think? Can you remember times when your natural energy was your best friend? Or other times when you let certain tendencies get in your own way?

I would love to hear your own entrepreneurial story—what you’ve tried, what you’ve learned, or what you will do differently the next time. Share in a comment.

    Great insights. Can’t wait for the Type 4 video! Thanks!

  • Erin

    This is a great video. I am going to have my T3 husband watch it.

  • Cat

    Lol….I am a happy-at-home mom/homeschooler but I had to learn over the years not to do the very things you describe…lol…like teaching the kids to make their beds etc and being happy with good enough rather than micromanage how they do it. I think these principles apply across the board of life with us 3′s! ;)

    I feel I have accomplished a lot being a Type 3. One of the biggest and most freeing lessons I learned is that I can accomplish even more when I trust others. I learned that delegating, not micromanaging, even leading a project without being ‘the one in charge’ all the time actually helped me not only accomplish bigger, better , faster – I created some wonderful relationships along the way as well. Thanks Carol for being so phenomenal!
