Collaboration! The action of working with someone to produce or create something. But I thought Entrepreneurs were independent. They are mostly in their thinking but not in the creation process.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN
Entrepreneurs usually spend a great deal of their time thinking about an idea or a concept that could improve a product, a service, or a concept. They either think about creating something new to replace something old or improve on something.
BUT THEY REALIZE THEIR LIMITATION
The one thing that an entrepreneur realize is their own limitation in this process and understand that they need the talents of others to be successful. This is needed especially
when you are transitioning your idea into a product or service.
This limitation is not just confined to skills, but finances. Many entrepreneurs have access to very limited financial resources. Can't get a bank loan or it's could be too early for an investor.
So What Are The Benefits Of Collaboration For Me?
1. First, by collaborating with other entrepreneurial spirits, it not only increases your chance of launching your product or services but it can also increase your chances of success.
2. As an entrepreneur, you will probably encounter some problems. Trying to resolve every problem by yourself and with just your own thinking can lead to frustration. Collaboration with others could help bring a quick and solid solution.
3. Confidence is a key factor in becoming an entrepreneur. But there are times on your journey which can last for years, it may be difficult to sustain your mindset. In that process, your confidence can be shaken. You may begin to doubt yourself. Collaborating with other entrepreneurs can help you put aside your doubt and get back on track.
4. Collaboration can help expand our world. It took collaboration that convinced Mark Zuckerberg that Facebook could be far more than a national social media concept, but worldwide.
5. And last but certainly not the least, collaboration provides a certain amount of autonomy and protection. And believe me, there are times you will need that more than anything.
And last but not least, this is more critical to our people and people in communities where resources are limited. Collaboration can offset the lack of resources by forging those limited resources into a space where they can be more effective.
