Entrepreneurs In Search For Support

Many entrepreneurs realise too late through their journey the critical importance of surrounding themselves with a guard of people who believe in their abilities, provide them with support, and are here in tough times. Aside enjoying beautiful moments together as well.

As a founder, you should engage (and renew this effort on a regular basis) with incredibly smart, highly capable and well connected individuals:

Multiply the sources of those interactions through one time events, hiring process, random connections, investors, mentors / advisors, even friends. Cross those abilities with the following personas as well:

Some of those people are or will become close friends, while some others will keep more distance. In any case, make sure that you foster those relationships to take the most & best out of them.

Keep in mind that all relationships go both ways. You choose people as much as they choose you. You must act up to their expectations, level of service and commitment. Be reliable, fast & thorough.

It’s ok to be overwhelmed, to miss the mark or fail, as long as there is progress, people understand. Just don’t fall short in your interactions with them, your attitude is a compass towards the future of your relationships.
