Turn The Fear Into Action = Creating Opportunities…

I’ve been hearing and seeing from more and more friends and students  who are being into “transition” experiences. This helped turn the fear into action = creating  opportunities…   :

“…..Across the country and around the world, legions of people are abandoning their dependence on big business and seeking independence through their own enterprises. Every month, about 1 million Americans go through some type of job change or loss, and increasingly they are deciding to start their own businesses.

In a recent report titled Work, Entrepreneurship and Opportunity in 21st Century America, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said, “Millions of Americans are embracing entrepreneurship by running their own small businesses, through independent contracting or direct selling.” The report also cited a recent Gallup poll finding that 61 percent of Americans now say they prefer to be their own bosses…” See  “You Should Start Your Own Biz Today” by  Virtual Entrepreneur-August 1st, 2008 ( http://brazilbusiness.biz/ )

“Entrepreneurial Strengths Assessment” Helps find Your Strengths

Working at with the organization that I do, is truly lifetime opportunity!

Leadership attracts talented people to an organization, and leaders attract loyal employees, key partners, and faithful customers. An entrepreneur who exercises leadership skills will be able to overcome the highs and the lows of the creation and execution of a business…” I took  my Entrepreneurial Strengths Assessment and found so much about myself! Please take it with your teams! see (www.estrengths.com)

I love this that our leaders from the Executives to our team leaders  lead by example Leaders thru-out Prosper inc. Great leaders develop and empower the people around so that the leader can see the growth and accomplishments of those around them and be there when they need help. We have leaders not here to micro-manage-everything and every little move students or employees do or  make, but there to help them guide and educate them to success

When Ken Blanchard and Ethan Willis talked with us a few months ago they  both talked about empowerment in terms of ducks and eagles. Great leaders produces eagles because they can soar above everyone else. Bad leadership produces ducks because they only “quack” what they are told.

Are those around you quacking or soaring?
