The business world can be simplified by splitting it into three different groups of people: dreamers, managers (organizers) and entrepreneurs. It seems these days many people claim they want to become the owner of their own business. However, not everyone has the drive and willpower to actually make it happen. These people tend not to understand just how much effort and work has been put in by many entrepreneurs to make their businesses flourish. You can learn about what makes up these three different types of people as the article dissects each groups main characteristic traits.
Dreams tend to be quite creative and their ideas can flow effectively, but sadly this is often where the business often ends. They are very optimistic about their ideas and the future of their business, without taking into account the many important details. Generally their work can be quite erratic due to lack of true focus. Risk taking is something that a dreamer is not often very comfortable with.
Although the dreamer has a great deal of potential which could lead them through to becoming a successful entrepreneur, they often lack the drive to do the hard work and actually make something real come from their ideas.
Managers (or organizers) are generally analytical thinkers with a great business sense. These types of people are usually very well organized and effective at constructing plans. Often these types of people are very hard working with willingness to follow others.
Managers are usually waiting for someone else such as an entrepreneur to come along and tell them exactly what needs to be done. Once they have concluded discussions the manager can then begin planning and organizing exactly how they will get things moving. Managers possess good knowledge on how ideas can be brought to public attention, gained from dealing with clients on a day-to-day basis. Usually managers will not invest too heavily within a single company or project, by creating very few ties they can keep much more freedom. This freedom grants them the ability to move between companies and projects as they please.
Entrepreneurs are very creative thinkers, and ideas can be constantly flowing in the mind of a good entrepreneur. Their true power comes from self motivation and dedication to their ideas and projects. A high level of persistence and drive allows them to work through when others may have given up completely. They often make good leaders, their forward thinking and optimism works very well with leading others. The entrepreneur is willing to take occasional risks during make or break moments.
The mindset of the dreamer and the manager mixes together within the entrepreneur. However they have a higher level of passion as they often invest their life and finances into a particular business or idea. As a business owner they have much more on the line than the dreamer or manager, therefore a high level of devotion and dedication to the project.
All three of these different groups of people are required within the business world. None of the groups exceed each other as all three are needed for a successful businesses to be created. It is also very often possible for people to drift between groups. The dreamer creates ideas, whereas the manager lays out a path for achieving them. The entrepreneur will own and run a business that has been created. Many successful entrepreneurs will adopt all three mindsets or build a team which will cover all three positions effectively.
