Astrology and Entrepreneurism

A number of readers have asked about this, so we decided to put an article and look at each zodiac and see the unique personalities, we thought this is an interesting article to share.

Capricorn

Strengths: Determination, strong leadership – these 2 characters make them as unique personalties in becoming very strong business and often political leaders. The downside being they can be stubborn in many cases, and unable to make changes when required, and could miss out opportunities as the result.

Aquarius

Their personalities: Detached, progressive, humane, intellectual, flamboyant, sympathetic, and unpredictable.

Progressive and humane and intellectual are 3 personalities to make them successful as business leaders, however, they tend to become unpredictable frequently and this could impact on the business and relationships.

Pisces

As a Pisces myself, I had learnt a lot about myself over the recent years when I decided to become an entrepreneur. We are creative, and have highly adaptable to all kinds of challenges and able to spot on opportunities others can’t. There are some very famous successful Pisces people including George Washington and Steve Jobs. However, Pisces are too soft, they don’t like to hurt others’ feelings, they tend to take on too many deals, and this can wear them out from tedious tasks.

Aries

Determined, fiery, executive skills, born leader, impulsive, headstrong, opinionated, loyal, physical, driven, ambitious. My Dad is Aries so I get to know this zodiac very well, he is also my role model as he became an entrepreneur when he was about 39. While very determined and very ambitious, I could see that they are uncompromising and over opinionated, which make them difficult to work in a joint-venture or expanding into new business opportunities.

Taurus

Security-conscious, resolute, sensual, dependable, faithful,secure, proud, obstinate and decisive. My sister is a Taurus, and through her career years (she is also an entrepreneur) , she had ups and downs. She is very decisive in making decisions, but needs a lot of elements to feel secure. Taurus are often very determined once they set the goal, but it can take a long time for them to set their goal.

Gemini

Multi-talented, thinker, talkative, social, scattered, diverse interests, loves variety and excitement. My daughter is a Gemini, and all of these are personalities I can observe from her. Flexibility and social skills are their biggest weapons, and they can always keep the crowd entertained. They can run excellent businesses in entertainment or anything to do with sales & marketing, but they are not great leaders in businesses that require discipline and technical skills.

Cancer

Loving, susceptible, sympathetic, sensual, faithful, instinctive, charitable, over-reactive and moody. I have known a number of business leaders that are Cancer, successful ones are often those relating to non-profit organizations using their sympathetic nature, which makes others feel comfortable around them. I also noticed many kids’ businesses are also a popular business for this zodiac.

Leo

Original, imposing, inflexible, motivated, ambitious, loyal, physical, charitable and majestic. One of my best friends is a Leo, he is very ambitious and always on the go, he will jump into a business without a business plan or any calculation, just jump into it like a lion. They are natural business leaders, but the main weakness being, they don’t implement, and prefers just to delegate. Their biggest asset is their energy, and this can motivate others to work for them.

Virgo

Loving, susceptible, sympathetic, sensual, faithful, instinctive, charitable, over-reactive and moody. My wife is a Virgo, while many think Virgo are not great business leaders, I actually think it otherwise. It really depends on what kind of businesses they are involved in, Virgos are highly dependable and always get things done in time, this means productivity, they can also find mistakes in a process, and highly disciplined.

Virgo works best in a systematic environment, and not at their best to generate business ideas or in a creative field.

Libra

Refined, social, artistic, vacillating, intellectual, communicative and concerned with relationships. I have known quite a few Libra, including my Mom. They are very sociable, and often have excellent communication skills. I see many succeed in areas of Internet, public relations and of course, many great judges because of their analytical skills. The weakness being their indecisiveness, they want to change but will force themselves into a long pros & cons analysis on just about everything and unable to draw a conclusion.

Scorpion

Secretive, passionate, resolute, insensitive, steadfast, painstaking and stubborn. Steadfast and insensitive are 2 good natures, insensitive is a double-edged sword, they don’t care about what others think, and able to focus on what they are passionate about. Stubbornness does mix up with their steadfast, and they can be very uncompromising when a business is stuck, and unable to respond or accept the changes.

Sagittarius

Magnanimous, honest, expansive, generous, reckless, extroverted, proud, larger than life, free. My brother in law is a Sagittarius, his motto is “I don’t want to be same as others”, he never worked for anybody, and he worked very hard and exceptionally extroverted, and able to work his way through the social elite at expensive exhibitions and events even though he just works from home. I marvel his skills as he is fearless in front of all kinds of people. “larger than life” is the best term to describe it.

6 Personalities of an Entrepreneur

You can always spot an entrepreneur from a crowd, they can always draw attention, they are always energetic and have the leadership.

Here are 6 personalities we have compiled from various business founders

I don’t know what failure is

Almost all entrepreneurs had failed before, most had failed by more than 5 or 6 times, but they never gave up. Most of them started their business because they lost their job including myself, and forced to make a dramatic change. If you do not take the first step, you will never know what the outcome will be.

Many entrepreneurs left their home country and trying their new adventure in another place particularly United States which accept entrepreneurs more than other places.

Stay Confident

There is always a better tomorrow is my motto, and this is shared by many entrepreneurs. No matter what is happening to the business today, there is always a better tomorrow, a new client can come up unexpectedly, a new investor could be just around the corner. You have to remain confident all the time.

For entrepreneurs, life can be a roller-coaster a lot of times, the road can be long and frustrating, you need to stay confident all the time.

Stop Second Guessing

I used to say “I believe” a lot, but since I started my first business, I changed my saying to “I will”. Stop second guessing and just do it. There will be times where you will have self-doubts, but just ignore them, and be assertive, there is no such thing as second guessing, you won’t know anything until you try it out.

We had an interesting lesson last week, we were selling our furniture, and took us 2 weeks to “second guess” what would happen, in the end, we just posted it and we sold our furniture within 2 hours. I know, we should had done this long ago!

Flexibility

Stubbiness and determination are 2 different terms. Being determined means you are highly focused to achieve, being stubborn means you are unwilling to make a change. Many entrepreneurs do have this mixed up. As a business owner, you need to adapt, and have a flexible approach in everything you do.

This could be as simple as changing a brochure, or you may need to change your business direction completely.

Sensitive to surroundings

You can always discover new opportunities, while drinking your coffee (or tea) at a local coffee shop, you can discover opportunities and new business ideas. “If I am the owner of this, I will…” will come into your mind.

Sensitivity and curiosity are 2 natures of an entrepreneur, they are always looking for ways to improve business, whether it’s profitability or productivity.

Risk Taker

Risk taking is what sets entrepreneurs apart – they take “reasonable” risks, not gambling. Each risk is a calculated risk with considerable analysis behind it. What can be a risk? It could be investing into a franchise, it could be setting up a new website, it could be hiring a new employee. It could be venturing into a new market. Each opportunity will be assessed according to the reward vs cost analysis.

These are the 6 personalities we believe are important for entrepreneurs, I have been there and still doing it. It takes a lot of nerves to start initially, but if you do have the above personalities, then entrepreneurism is the way to go.

6 Ideas to start your first business

There are lots of entrepreneurs, but the most critical question is what business should they start? You can come up with hundreds of good ideas, but what’s the point if you can’t implement them and turn into a real business?

Here are 6 ideas for you to start your first business – you can test the water first and eventually find out what you are really good at and change your business eventually.

Idea 1: Buy a small franchise

Franchises can start from as low as $5000, even less, some good franchises are also available between $10,000 to $20,000. Many franchising opportunities are designed to be work-from-home businesses as well.

The good thing about franchising is you are tapping into an existing system, therefore, you can save significant time in product development, as well as sales & marketing activities. You can lear a lot being a franchisee, you can learn about sales & marketing strategies, you can learn from training, and most importantly, you can also build up your customer base as well.

Idea 2: Kids related activities business

Summer camps, sports camps, winter camps..you name them. The kids activities industry is the fast growing industry and it was hardly impacted during the recession as well. Most parents will cut spending on everything but on kids’ activities.

This is a good way to build your first business – this can include tutoring, summer camps, activities camps, education & entertainment, dancing, football and lots of choices.

The best thing about this is building a business around your hobbies and interests – for example, my hobby is in sharemarket and business creations – I had been running summer camps teaching kids about finance and business innovations.

You can also establish great networks through these activities with their parents, this is a great way to get to know clients from different industries.

Idea 3: E-Store

Anybody can set up a e-commerce store these days. eBay and Amazon are good starting points, but essentially, you should also build a site that can send customers directly to your site. The choice is yours – you probably need to try different products or services on web. Avoid businesses that require inventory as the first business as that can eat-up your capital very fast, if possible, have some digital products such as eBooks or reports as starting point, and promote useful information such as How To Guides.

Idea 4: Blogging Website

Blogging can make you become an expert – by writing informative articles, you can create many followers and larger audiences. Blogging is not everyone, you must enjoy writing, or you can have a team of writers, that you can manage.

Blogging can create significant advertising revenues, one good example is Examiner.com – who shares revenue with other writers.

However, to make it successful, you must own your own blog and builds up traffic consistently, and interact with your readers by offering them incentives, downloads and communicate tem regularly with newsletters.

It is very common for bloggers to make $2000 to $3000 a month these days as a starting point, and they can go into $10,000+ a month once you have 50,000 or more members and readers.

Idea 5: Mobile Marketing Company

This is quite a fast growing trend thanks to smart-phones and devices. Mobile marketing is surging and businesses are adopting this rapidly. Mobile marketing is a simple-to-use and simple to understand concept for most businesses.

You do not need to be an IT expert, but rather – is to have a good idea and user of different applications that can integrate with social media tools and web marketing platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest or Twitter.

This is an exceptional popular business for young entrepreneurs, who are always on the lookout of the latest new gadgets or mobile applications that can be utilizes for businesses.

5 Strategies to use LinkedIn for Capital Raising

In my view, LinkedIn is one of the most revolutionary inventions in the finance industry, it has opened up enormous opportunities that were previous unavailable.

However, most still think LinkedIn simply as a social media platform, and unsure what to do with it, in this article, we have outlined 6 strategies that you can use & integrate using LinkedIn effectively for capital raising.

Strategy 1: Start with your own contacts 

The first strategy is look at what you have outside LinkedIn – do you have e-mail database, business cards, your personal contacts, and business associates? The first thing is to use LinkedIn to connect or reconnect with them.

People change jobs all the time, you will be surprised how much networks you can expand simply by connecting with your old friends, colleagues or associates.

I did this recently and reconnected with my elementary school friend, and before I know it, she connected me to her realtor, who then connected me to a commercial real estate group, and we are working on a large deal because of this quick introduction.

Strategy 2: Use InMail

Most LinkedIn users want to save money and do not want to upgrade to paid memberships. I was one of them for many years. We upgraded to business level and we were allocated with many InMail credits.

LinkedIn InMail has the best response rate – our response rate is as high as 80% to 100%, and if they do not reply to you, LinkedIn will actually return the InMail credits back to your account, it is a worthwhile investment.

Strategy 3: Research Company Information

Before you start using LinkedIn, come up with a list of companies you wish to contact first, do some initial research, then use LinkedIn to identify the decision makers and appropriate contacts.

We are in the real estate industry helping clients in finding joint venture partners – so started with our own in-house analysis on REITs, private equity groups and hedge funds. We then use LinkedIn to connect with the CEOs and COOs of these groups, and this has helped us to build up relationships rapidly.

Strategy 4: Integrate LinkedIn with CRM

LinkedIn is essentially a huge ever-growing database, and it can get out of control pretty quickly if you are managing properly, and you will be end up with “contacts overflow” – you will have lots of contacts, but you have no idea how to use them.

This is when CRM becomes handy, you should integrate contacts with CRM system and have a systematic search methodology in the CRM on contacts from your LinkedIn contacts, this will make the process much easier.

Strategy 5: Use Keywords and Search Terms

One challenge for LinkedIn is everyone is inputting their bio / resume into LinkedIn themselves, the range of keywords can be very different. Similar to search engine, you need to come up with a range of keywords to ensure you can find the relevant contacts.

For example: JV, Joint Venture, Preferred Equity, Equity Participation, Structured Investment.

Also for companies – many have subsidiaries and divisions, so you can use those as keywords. These will help you to identify investors for your opportunities.

Entrepreneur’s 5 important personalities

Why some entrepreneurs succeed, and they seem to have all the success while the rest just keep failing? Is it simply because of the luck, or is it something that anyone can master?
In most cases,  it is more important to identify these personalities than the actual business. Business plans can be written to perfect, but it is the people who are driving it.

Personality check is a key criteria to attract investments, and it is often something most entrepreneurs have ignored the importance – investors will not tell you that they do not invest in you because of your personalities, but they will make up some other excuses.

So take a look of 6 personalities that are being assessed by investors

Personalities of a good Entrepreneur

1. Visionary realist

Yes, they have to co-exist – you need to have a long-term vision but also a realist. Too many entrepreneurs only have vision and nothing else, that is probably 90% of chance why they fail or could not attract investment.

Realist means you will accept the best offer presented to you, they maybe far off from what you are hoping for, but you are able to work on the plan according to the realistic plan and investment.

2. Flexibility & Adaptability

It is important to have flexibility as entrepreneurs – we can probably say “most things will not work according to the plan”. Many have failed simply because they do not have back up plans when something happens such as competitor, disruption in supply or loss of a key employee.

Able to adapt and survive in adverse conditions is the most important ingredient, able to be flexible in your sales, marketing and product offering, as market changes all the time.

3. A Survivor

These types of entrepreneurs can usually survive, business world is about innovation, creativity but also fittest survives.

We have seen many successful entrepreneurs have succeeded because they have learnt from their mistakes from previous ventures but persist and change into another business.

You don’t need to hide that you had failed before – most importantly, it’s what you had learnt.

4. A Negotiator

We are currently assisting several companies to source capital for their expansion capital – we have 2 clients who have received Term Sheet from investors, but they simply do not want to negotiate.

“Waiting for a better offer” is what they believe in – instead of negotiating with offers from investors, they simply ignore them and burn the bridge. One of them finally realizes that he can not get any alternative offer and now going back to the original investor, but “the money has gone cold” and he is unable to find an alternative investment.

Business is all about negotiating, do not turn away an offer completely, see if you can work around your own circumstances and make changes.

5. Not a control freak

Delegation is important, too many entrepreneurs always say “I wish I can clone myself”, I am one such like that. Then I realize, I am simply wasting my time, there are many talented people out there, and most importantly, there are many tasks where you don’t need to do yourself.

Do not control everything yourself – set yourself a good working schedule and delegate out – delegate out tasks such as sales contacts, CRM updates, research, analysis, marketing campaigns to others and focus on most important matters – such as client negotiation and product development.

6.Calculated Risk Taker

Many entrepreneurs are not risk takers – and yet – they contradict this outside business. I know business owners who refuse to take the risk and expand their operations or putting their own capital into business for expansion, yet – they trade FX or even worse, they go to casinos regularly.

What’s a risk taker? Well, you have to take calculated risks:

1) Able to risk your capital for business expansion such as payrolls or equipment

2) Able to use your collateral or assets to apply for expansion loan or capital

3) Able to share with your clients and other joint venture partners

I have seen too many cases where entrepreneurs have shown no skin in the game.
