Corporate job's are risk averse and but less fun as we don't get to do "What We Feel Like", unlike doing a Business!! From "Rags to Riches" stories comes from Entrepreneurs and not regular 9-5 job seekers. I also come to understand all can't become "Entrepreneurs" but have to go thru the below life cycle, either thru our - day today job as Head of XYZ or as Entrepreneur. "Theoreneurial Life Cycle" is must know for all who are doing/will do business or Lead/leading a company !!
"Business Planning, Economic Environment, Business Economics, Industry Analysis,Business Strategy, Product Development, Marketing, Sales,After Sales & Services Marketing, Product Management(Version/Upgrades), Operations & Supply Chain Management, Accounting, Costing, Working Capital Management, Pricing,Finance, Banking, Budgeting, Managing People, Law, Taxation, Communication, Negotiation and Networking "
Practicals Learnings from the above life cycle will be experienced early by real guys out there doing "Entrepreneurial Work" and those who learn these concepts thru' "Theoreneurial Learnings" llike MBA's/Managers who lead/will lead a company will make use of it to grow the organisations they work by acquiring the "Entrepreneur's - Start Up's".
Winning companies do also these four things right,
"They slim down to a few key simple goals with Clear Targets and CarefulFollow-Through; they maintain High levels of Trust with their Customers, Employees, and Suppliers; they do more of what matters to their consumers and lastly they Channel the Anxiety of their People into Results."
