LETTER FROM EDITOR – ISSUE 8
In today’s ever-changing workforce landscape, many of us seek stability, good income, and retirement security. So which is the “safe” way to go: entrepreneurship or a corporate job? In this issue we explore differences and similarities between being an Entrepreneur and Intrapreneur. We have interviewed entrepreneurs from local communities and we have a lot of inspirational articles for you as well: You’ve Just Graduated? Entrepreneurship or a Corporate Job?, Top Characteristics/Habits Of Successful Entrepreneurs & Intrapreneurs, How Emotional Intelligence plays a role in Entrepreneurial Orientation, Importance of assembling a good team for your business venture among others.
Whether you are employed by a company or running your own business it is important to know what it takes to “stay in business.” It can be the difference between keeping your job or losing your job and staying in business or shutting down your business. More and more employers are seeking knowledge and researching ways to find or retain skilled workers as part of their sustainability plan. Things are not how they used to be as competition becomes stiffer. It is very important for everyone, including medium- and large-sized businesses, to keep up with the trends as the number of century old companies is decreasing. The average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 index of leading US companies has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century, from 67 years in the 1920s to just 15 years today, according to Professor Richard Foster from Yale University (bbb.com).
On the flip side, more and more Americans are finding ways to supplement their income. According to the 16th article, Surprising Statistics about Small Businesses by Forbes, approximately 543,000 new businesses are launched each month. Those news small businesses have generated over 65% of the net new jobs since 1995.
There is no right or wrong here; however, it is important to become an expert at what you are doing as this will determine your value on the job market. Say NO to mediocrity on any level. Open up your mind and keep on learning every day!
