“Helping entrepreneurs with finding a way out of a situation is an up-spiral achievement. It’s like being a guide in the world of entrepreneurship when you say “hey, I know your problems and I can help you out”.
On Empowered 4x Bizgram Episode 19, our guest Ryan Knight talks about some challenges we face in entrepreneurship and how to overcome them.
What has been Ryan’s biggest learning in entrepreneurship till date?
Ryan recalls an advice from a senior: “Don’t run away from complexity”. Leaders need to lead their team through that complexity. A situation may seem complex initially. However, when you move in and see the results of being able to do something that you were fearing, then the execution of it makes you grow. Biggest challenge of an entrepreneur is stepping away from doing the work and managing the business. You are required to create the tasks that everybody has to do. And then, make sure it gets done in order to manage an enterprise.
Overcoming a Challenge:
The magic is “when you put together a structured plan, you overcome the complexity that you thought was insurmountable”.
Our mind is a terrible note-taker. We have to get on paper to structure it, put team members around it and delegate those tasks. And then have regular meetings to measure progress and manage problems. We need not try to do everything ourselves and needn’t be afraid to bring on a team like a virtual assistant, a volunteer, etc.
