New Video Inspires Aspiring Entrepreneurs to Reach Their Goals

Are you an aspiring home-based or other small business owner who is still struggling with whether or not to make that business opportunity investment or franchise opportunity investment? If so, serially successful entrepreneur Geoffrey Clapp has a message of inspiration for you.

As the narrator of the newest addition to the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation’s sketchbook video series, “Go Be an Entrepreneur,” Clapp’s core message is clear…

Beware! It’s far too easy to get caught up in the process and alluring culture of entrepreneurship and lose sight of what really matters, and that’s actually getting something done.

While theory and talking about the future of your startup entrepreneurial endeavor is nice and even necessary, according to Clapp, what’s most important if you want to be successful is action. “Go build something,” he impugns. “Go do something. Make something happen.”

And, he says, you don’t need to go it alone. In fact, having the right mentor is critical. So much so that trading the one you’ve got for one that is even more effective when you’re going it alone isn’t just a nice idea, it’s a necessity.

Recognizing that much of Clapp’s message pertains to entirely new startups, a lot of what he has to say also very much supports the idea of buying into a business opportunity or franchise, especially where the idea of finding a great mentor is concerned.

The best mentors, he says, should guide you in establishing four key things at startup—your business model, your distribution model, the recruitment of your team and assessing your product-market fit.

In the case of most business opportunities, distributorships, licensee opportunities and franchises, that’s exactly what they’re selling and what you’re buying into—a proven business and distribution model with a track record of success and all the training, tools and guidance you need to get started and ultimately be successful.

So, if you’re searching for just the right business opportunity investment or franchise opportunity investment, we encourage you to start here at BusinessOpportunity.com.
