How to be an effective Intrepreneur?

Intrepreneurship is on the rise! It is the practice of using entrepreneurial skills without taking on the risks or accountability associated with entrepreneurial activities.

The definition of an entrepreneur is one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.

Intrepreneurship can been defined similarly, although the behavior occurs within established firms.

If you want to be promoted, become a leader within an organization, make as much money as possible and become indispensable, then you must learn to become a successful intrepreneur.

The successful intrepreneur will put themselves into the mind of the CEO of their organization. They will see what they see and really feel the feelings of being a CEO. They will know that the overall objective of the company is to grow and become profitable and therefore they will gear all of their activities within their role to help facilitate that growth.

The company you are working for now began as a start-up and intrerpreneurship will help bring the companies mojo back.

The successful intrepreneur will embark on networking activities outside of work and will constantly be on the lookout for leads that will further business development. They will keep up to date with competitor analysis and spot new trends before anyone else. The successful intrepreneur will be goal and results orientated. He/she will take control of their tasks and go the extra mile in their role.

A great example of a successful intrepreneur is the person who performs other roles of value without them necessarily being in their job description. For example offering to mentor new people, offering to run workshops on information they have learnt which will be of value to the business, tailoring their linked in profile and other social media tools to sell the company in the most effective way and remaining a positive, up-beat person who the company wants to have around.

Other ways to be a successful intrepreneur and have the best chance of being noticed and promoted is to think outside the box with your job responsibilities. Don’t be afraid to take risks and ask questions about what else you can do to add maximum value. Start by writing a SWOT analysis of the company, do some competitor analysis and start thinking of ideas on how the company can grow.

Another way of becoming a great intrepreneur is to become a mini expert in the industry. Tailor your social media to fit with the objectives of the firm and conduct regular training and analysis of what is happening in your industry. You should subscribe to relevant magazines and sign up to google alerts to ensure you become the best expert you can be.

The successful intrepreneur will be able to multi task, have a high level of energy and be passionate about where the industry is heading and all the new developments. If you follow these tips and apply them to your company, then I guarantee you will get noticed and the rewards will follow.
