Improving Your Entreprenurial Impact
Example of a Great "NON-BUSINESS" Card from
our friends Miller and Vee
by Tammy de Leeuw

It's a shame...
Many in the financial services industry don't see themselves as entrepreneurs- and suffer
for it in terms of lost opportunities and missed revenues.
The most successful financial professionals, however, not only see themselves as entrepreneurs- they RELISH that role, and spend MOST of their time in the relentless pursuit of information which will help them become better entrepreneurs.
The dictionary defines an entrepreneur as someone who organizes a business and assumes the risk. But that only scratches the surface. Entrepreneurs are the gin in the vermouth of business; the Mrs. Dash in the bland diet of everyday business existence...
Did you know you are ALL THAT?
In fact, the main reason I started this blog and the ezine was to "incite financial professionals to riotous entrepreneurship." It was not to sell advertising, as some have suggested, because I don't. Instead, I am focused on networking for you so you can be exposed to some of the most innovative marketers, sales trainers, and thinkers on the planet.
Not all of these solutions will fit who you are- you need to trust your instincts and choose what feels right to you. But at least you have a starting point. I hope you continue reading the blog and continue growing in knowledge and wisdom, like the great entrepreneur you are.
Knowledge and action are essential to a successful business and I hope that I can give you the knowledge you need in order to take the actions you must.
Information -- having it and knowing how to use it -- is the key to business strength. Information is the great equalizer. It has no bias -- not toward gender, race nor religion. In its simplest form, information is a single fact. It is anything you see, hear, read, touch, talk about, sniff, observe or question. It's also any idea. It can be a word, a symbol, number, color or comparison.
