Episode 112: The Entrepreneurial Work Mode | Pamela Slim

Pamela Slim, the Entrepreneurial Work Mode,

Pamela Slim

Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone according to Pamela Slim.  Entrepreneurs need to be competent in the entrepreneurial work mode.  In Episode 112, Pamela Slim and I will discuss the entrepreneurial work mode and how to become successful as an entrepreneur.

Pamela Slim is an award-winning author, speaker and leader in the new world of work. She spent the first 10 years of her solo practice as a consultant to large corporations such as Hewlett-Packard, Charles Schwab and Cisco Systems, where she worked with thousands of employees, managers and executives. In 2005, she started the Escape from Cubicle Nation blog, which is now one of the top career and business sites on the web. She has coached thousands of budding entrepreneurs, in businesses ranging from martial art studios to software start ups.

According to Pamela, not everyone can be an entrepreneur.  There are so many components that have to work together to create a great business.

A lot of people paint the picture that entrepreneurship is wonderful and fantastic, but really it’s hard work.  In reality, it’s just a work mode.

Set up business licenses, a bank account, talk to an accountant and make sure you’re setting up a viable business.

Who is your market?  What is the different ways you can connect with them?

Tom Dowd Time Management Tips and Tactics

Tom Dowd

Time management is a disciplined mindset to be able to live in the moment while working toward the future. It is all mental—it’s an attitude.  Having control in your life is about commitment, routines, flexibility, adjustments, and planning.  We create our own self-limitations.  We say we’ll do tomorrow what we really want to do today.  Eliminate what’s holding you back.  “Time Management Manifesto” offers specific actions that will teach subscribers the following themes:

  • Manage your time, don’t let it manage you
  • Time management is required of all levels, in all positions
  •  The benefits of managing professional time effectively spill into your personal space

Throughout the interview, Tom gives some great advice on ways to manage your time.

One idea is to block off a period of time at the end of each work day to plan out your next day.  The same thing is to plan out your month a week or two before the beginning of the next month.

Turn off the notifications on your computer to avoid distractions.
