You perform all the basic business functions in your daily life. How you dress, speak, the car you drive, and how you present yourself is marketing. Dreaming, developing goals and planning is strategy. Managing relationships with your family, friends, and lovers, that’s management and communications. Managing your phone, tablet, computer, TV, and other electronic devices, that’s IT. Getting, spending, saving and managing money is finance and accounting.
In many ways running a business engages a set of activities you perform regularly in your private life. How these activities have impacted you and how you react to and interact with them, will provide you with a deep understanding about what is effective and important to you, and what is not.
By taking stock of your personality and predispositions, you can develop a business persona and set of operating habits that are in line with your innate strengths, interests and preferences.
