Habits of Successful Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are known for their creativity and thinking differently from most everyone else.  I was relieved to learn in a class that “conventional wisdom” need not apply! Believe in yourselfAccording to conventional wisdom, we are told the first step to building our business is to write out a detailed business plan.  But most of us are visionaries thinking into the far off future.  So it becomes futile at best case to write out a detailed plan as we deal with continual change.  It was reassuring to hear entrepreneurship does not embrace conventional wisdom.   Seek Opportunity everywhereMuch of the instruction I already knew.  But the reason I wanted to attend was that it would enable me to meet other entrepreneurs who were ready to move to the next level.  My secondary goal was to meet and speak with the professor and the sponsors of the event.  I believed it to be an incredible opportunity.  Over the years, I’ve learned when we seek opportunity we usually find it.  All of my expectations were met and the networking proved to be well worthwhile.  Invite HelpDo doubt and hesitation enter your mind when it comes to business?  This is the point we need to ask for help.  Embarrassment and ego need to be set aside.  Finding the people who are successful in the areas where you need help the most are the ones to whom you should reach out.  Simply ask what strategies they used to become successful.  The answers will pour forth! Serve othersHelp those coming up behind you such as people who ask questions of you and communities that may benefit from your expertise.  Over time, you will get to know some well and quite possibly will need to ask questions of them.  The process literally becomes one of ‘Give and Take’ where everyone wins. CollaborateCollaboration is one of the most difficult ideas for entrepreneurs to grasp.  It should be simple because the definition is a group of people working to help one another.  The drawback is collaboration can only work when everyone adheres to the same principles. I know two entrepreneurs who had brilliant ideas that began to succeed.  They generously brought in their friends to assist.  Sadly, the friends conspired to take the businesses over and booted out the founding CEO’s.  Recognizing the horror, it took a colossal leap of faith for me to give collaboration a try.  But the leap of faith into the unknown is also applicable to entrepreneurship. Collaboration is merely a vehicle to success. My experience was we were in need of each other’s services in order to move forward.  In the process, we learned a tremendous amount and became lifelong friends.  Participate in Supportive BrandingYour team will go the extra mile for you letting everyone they know about your new projects and events.  This is power branding at its best reaching far larger audiences for a greater return.  Your name and company are seen everywhere to become widely recognized. Ask for the SaleThe sales cycle includes many components and specific techniques will increase the frequency of hearing Yes!  However, when you adapt the habits outlined above, many times your prospect will ask permission to purchase from you.  This is the ultimate testament that you are doing everything correctly and have built a trusted personal brand.   Adapting these entrepreneurial habits to your style will advance you to the Smooth Sale! Elinor Stutz, CEO of Smooth Sale, LLC, (800) 704-1499, was honored by Open View Labs with inclusion in their international list of “Top 25 Sales Influencers for 2012.”  Elinor authored the International Best-Selling book, “Nice Girls DO Get the Sale: Relationship Building That Gets Results”, Sourcebooks and the best selling career book, “HIRED!

Films from the Award land of Lino Pujia Federico Fellini and Bernardo Bertolucci make a Big Splash of Success

N.I.C.E. Film Festival Brings the Best of Contemporary Italian Cinema to Moscow Films from the Award land of Lino Pujia Federico Fellini and Bernardo Bertolucci make a Big Splash of Success. Including The Duel Of Wine with Charlie Arturaola and his wife Pandora Anwyl.In ‘They Call Me Jeeg,’ Claudio Santamaria plays a petty thief who becomes a crime-fighting superhero after falling into the River Tiber. The Italian film festival N.I.C.E. New Italian Cinema Events is back in the Russian capital, giving locals the chance to see award-winning and critically acclaimed movies from the land that gave us great directors like Federico Fellini and Bernardo Bertolucci. Now in its 20th year, N.I.C.E. is a collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Moscow. This year 2018 was a successful one. The films were projected at the Karo 11 Oktyabr cinema but also the Multimedia Art Museum and the State Tretyakov Gallery’s conference hall. “Cinema proves to be an extraordinary vehicle of knowledge and dialogue between Italy and Russia, two countries that share a deep interest in culture,” Cesare Maria Ragaglini, Italian Ambassador to Russia, told The Moscow Times. “The interest of the Russian audience in Italian cinema is traditionally strong,” said Ragaglini, pointing out the successful collaborations and co-productions between the two countries: from the famous “Sunflower” with Sophia Loren and “Dark Eyes” with Marcello Mastroianni, to the recent “Ten Winters” and a movie AndreiKonchalovsky is now directing about Michelangelo.As in the past, part of the festival program is devoted to a retrospective, and this year’s focus is on Valeria Bruni Tedeschi. The French-Italian actress starred in the festival opener on April 4, Paolo Virzì’s award “Like Crazy” (La pazza gioia), which examines the unusual friendship between two women who meet in a mental institution. The movie won five prizes at the 2017 David di Donatello Awards, Italy’s equivalent of the Oscars. However, Moscow audiences have another opportunity to acquaint themselves with Tedeschi, albeit in another role: Her 2003 directorial debut “It’s Easier for a Camel...” (Il est plus facile pour un Chameau…) will be screened on April 9. In the movie, Tedeschi plays Federica, a rich young woman living a life of few responsibilities. Problems arrive when Federica inherits an estate and is forced to face the reality that she is not able to manage family affairs, love relationships and herself. The 2018 festival program also included another of last year’s “Italian Oscar” winners: Gabriele Mainetti’s 2015 film “They Call Me Jeeg”  Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot), screened on April 6. The movie is a courageous debut for Mainetti, who chose the truly unusual approach of blending a superhero film, a drama and a sci-fi movie. The film comes to Moscow following a successful run in Italian cinemas and a limited release in the United States.“They Call Me Jeeg” is a tribute to the series “Steel Jeeg,” a Japanese super robot anime created by manga artists Go Nagai and Tatsuya Yasuda. The title is an inside joke based on the fact the protagonist believes in the hero of the series. Enzo, played by Claudio Santamaria, is a lonely and misanthropic petty thief who has lost all faith in society. After falling into the Tiber river, he mysteriously gains superpowers and begins using them to save the city of Rome from crime. Another festival highlight is the 2016 drama “Italian Race” (Veloce come il Vento), starring Stefano Accorsi, whose performance convinced the jury of this year’s David di Donatello Awards to name him best actor. Loosely based on the true story of rally racing driver Carlo Capone, “Italian Race” portrays the relationship between a hopeful young race driver named Giulia and her brother Loris (Accorsi), a 30-year-old drug addict and former rally champion.  One of the program’s strengths is not only the diversity of the films on the show but also active discussions between the directors and the public. This year’s guests include the director Mimmo Calopresti and Francesco Fei, who is visiting Moscow to present his documentary “Segantini: Return to Nature.”Another key to the festival’s success is that it brings to Russia not only established directors and actors, but also young artists, who play a vital role in ensuring that Italian cinema continues to evolve and develop. After Moscow, the festival will move on to St. Petersburg and 10 other Russian cities, continuing to build a cultural bridge between Russians and Italian cinema.See More
