Are You Opportunistic or Strategic?
Opportunity seekers think opportunistically and entrepreneurs think strategically.
An opportunity seeker is always looking for the ‘next big thing’ to make lots of money from the hot opportunity of the moment. Their only criteria “Can I make money from this?” So, yesterday it was Instagram, today it’s Adsense, tomorrow it’s Solo Ads. Opportunity seekers buy lots of products, and they use only a few of them, and the ones they do use get abandoned when the next so-called “easy” way to make money comes by. The question they ask themselves is, “What’s the easiest way for me to make money right now?”
Opportunity seekers buy a lot of different products, use only a few of them, and those they do use get abandoned when the next so-called “easy” way to make money comes by.
The question they ask themselves is, “What’s the easiest way for me to make money right now?”
The entrepreneur, on the other hand, is a completely different person altogether.
An entrepreneur has a clear vision of what they want the business to become.
Because they have a vision they can analyze their own strengths, their competitor strengths, the marketplace preferences and devise different strategies for achieving their vision. After reviewing the pros and cons of each strategic alternative, they pick the one strategy most certain to successfully achieve their vision.
The entrepreneur knows that their biggest opportunity is always inside their business, following their ideal strategy and not the hot product that everyone is emailing about this week.
