MIAMI, FL, July 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Forefathers of America have been referred to many a time as the first true entrepreneurs. The declaration of independence itself represents a true embracing of entrepreneurial spirit. Their actions paved the way for budding business minds to put their ideas into motion and created a nation where small enterprises are supported and encouraged. Miami-based sales and marketing agency The Plato Group believe entrepreneurs can learn many lessons from these American heroes that are still very much relevant in today's business world.
Here are 4 pieces of timeless advice inspired by the life and work of John Adams.
Having a strong argument and convictions in one's own beliefs is highly important in any new venture. There are obviously far greater risks in developing a country compared to embarking on a new business venture, however a young entrepreneur's first initial role is to construct a faultless and compelling argument as to why people should support and invest in an idea. Much like developing a country, an entrepreneur needs to provide a solution to a problem that promises to be better than other available options. With this in mind, it's just as important to write with passion and clarity, even if an idea has a lot of potential it won't progress without being communicated correctly. Young entrepreneurs should always have their audience in mind when writing proposals and ensure their argument remains persuasive throughout.
It can be tempting as a young entrepreneur to avoid risks and take a safer path. However without taking the plunge and pushing their ideas at every opportunity entrepreneurs are likely to fade into the background whilst their competitors move ahead.
On the 4th of July 1776, John Hancock signed the declaration of independence and sealed America's name as not only a country but a brand. What they promised to their citizens became the foundations of the country they had dreamed of creating. Every big brand these days follows the same principle by compiling a set of morals which stand to benefit both themselves and their customers. Entrepreneurs should always create a strong set of values and aims for their business to ensure their brand message is heard and that customer needs are met.
Finally, entrepreneurs should embrace their independence, choosing entrepreneurship isn't an easy path and young business minds who have chosen to take the leap should wear their entrepreneur badge with pride. Many customers prefer smaller enterprises to big corporations so being proud and confident about their origins can be a big bonus for many fledgling companies.
The Plato Group believe it is important to support and nurture young entrepreneurs to secure a vibrant and strong economy in the future. By encouraging young people to consider entrepreneurship as a viable career option The Plato Group hope to encourage more diversity and fresh thinking within all industries.
