As we break into summer, a lot is concentrating our minds at GBN.
Creative people and entrepreneurship trap
Creativity is amazing when it comes to building a business.
Some entrepreneurs have made a conscious choice to stay in their creative flow by choosing to be inspirational and delegating the management or CEO position to someone who has the skills and the motivation for the long run.
Many creative people can lose their spark when managing a company. For some, once things are up and running, creativity is taken over by entrapment.
Studies show that many entrepreneurs suffer from stress, which often leads to depression – 35% of them are impacted by depression versus 15% for the general population. For some, stress comes from the fact that pleasure and vitality feed their creativity. Paperwork and team management wear them down as it is not necessarily their strongest asset.
What is your strength? Creation and novelty? Management? Communication and Marketing? Or the daily administration of the business?
The knowledge of where you get your happiness from is a powerful tool to find or build yourself the right job.
Taking the time to match your strengths with your source of joy is an important way to find where you can not only enjoy working but also offer the best of your professional self to an employer.
If you struggle to find how to find your passion, hire a coach, you will be amazed by what you can discover about yourself.
