REEthink…REEvisualize your entrepreneurial success

By markwehner - 9th December 2013

Have you ever heard the phrase…”visualize your success!”?  Visualization is a common tool used by coaches of all kinds…business…sports…etc.  It is the process of seeing your accomplishments before they happen.  The theory is that when one can actually see…or visualize…themselves actually taking specific actions that bring about the desired result…the result manifests itself to match the visualization.  It is actually seeing something happen…in advance of the happening…thus making the visualized happening a reality. Does visualization work?  Those that discount this...

REEthink…REEaffirm your entrepreneurial spirit daily

By markwehner - 25th July 2013

Every day entrepreneurs encounter that one negative person that criticizes you…and your dream.  Some are subtle statements…some are openly derrogitory.  Each encounter with these naysayers requires the same…unyielding response from the entrepreneur.  This response must be concise…to the point…and crystal clear to REEaffirm the entrepreneurs belief…and passion in their chosen endeavor. Here is the interesting “entrepreneurial” spin…look for a “naysayer-a-day.”  Seek them out!  Put yourself in their negative crosshairs!  Sometimes…if need be…find a way to engage and encourage their negativity towards...

REEthink…REEaligning entrepreneurship

By markwehner - 7th June 2013

Like a car traveling down the road…every now and then it hits a bump in the road.  If it hits enough bumps the wheels are knocked out of  ”alignment”.  This means that the vehicle is not tracking properly.  It also means that the tires wear unevenly…the suspension is weakened…and the overall safety of the vehicle is compromised.  If left uncorrected for a period of time…the cost to repair these “alignment” problems can be staggering. Metaphorically speaking…entrepreneurs are like the car...

REEthink…Entrepreneurship that REEsonates II

By markwehner - 30th April 2013

This is a REElook at REEsonate.  Thus the “II”!  REEsonation plays such a key role in entrepreneurship that it deserves a second look! Entrepreneurship originates from many forms.  It takes on a meaning…then a form…then an impact…and then REEsonates in the marketplace.  REEsonate…to the entrepreneur…is a critical part of the vision.  It defines the venture…the process…the product…and REEsonates to the people. “Resonate”…according to the dictionary…means to reverberate…to vibrate…to echo.   These defining words all play a part in the success...

REEthink…REEmarkable entrepreneurship

By markwehner - 28th April 2013

Entrepreneurs have an knack for being REEmarkable. How many times have you heard…”That’s remarkable!”?  What exactly does that mean?  Most define “remarkable” with words like extraordinary…outstanding…notable…over-the-top achievement.  That may be the case in many instances, but the in the world of the entrepreneur the word “remarkable” has a two step meaning. The first step…and probably the most important to the entrepreneur…is to create an experience, a product, or a connection with a solution that fills a unique void in the...

REEthink…Entrepreneurial REEiteration

By markwehner - 13th January 2013

Have you ever heard someone say…”Let me reiterate…”?  More than likely it was said in a context of  ”wanting to make a strong point”…again…and again.  In the business world these “reiteraed points” can be either positive or negative.  However…within the entrepreneurial context…REEiteration is one of the most powerful and positive action an entrepreneur can employ. According to the Merriman-Webster Dictionary…”reiterate means to state or do over again or repeatedly sometimes with wearying effect.”  According to REEsults Coaching…”REEiterate means to see...

REEthink…Thriving with REEdundant entrepreneurship

By markwehner - 4th January 2013

Entrepreneurs that are actively engaged in the “pride and the process” of entrepreneurship are most often painted as mavericks…unbridled non-conformists…individuals that make and take irrational actions to follow a dream.  Some are…but most successful entrepreneurs are not. Successful entrepreneurs are those visionaries that have the ability to sift and sort through all the clutter to achieve results few believed possible.  In this clutter…there are nuggets.  Nuggets of knowledge…nuggets of enthusiasm…and nuggets of success.  Not all nuggets are found breaking new...

REEthink…REEtest entrepreneurial ideas

By markwehner - 9th December 2012

If there ever is a science tied to entrepreneurship I am sure it would be discounted by the status quo of the business world.  The irony of this statement is that most…if not all…businesses started with “one person…one idea…and an action plan”.  Whoa…isn’t that “entrepreneurship”? Anyway…one key component of success in any entrepreneurial endeavor is the ability to take any idea…theorize the idea…test the idea…and then apply the idea.  Once applied…the idea either stands and works on it’s own…and usually...

REEthink…How Entrepreneurs REEstrategize

By markwehner - 19th November 2012

In “business”…when any word starts with “re”…it usually means a “do over”.  You know…starting over…from scratch…back to basics.   However, in “entrepreneurship”…when the word starts with “REE”…it always uniquely means a mindset…and/or a method…that is based in an “entrepreneurial perspective”. That being stated…how does this apply to a business..better yet…and entrepreneurial strategy?  In essence…once a business is started…it must convert from a business operation to an entrepreneurial venture.  It needs to make a metamorphic shift in thought…word…and deed away from...

REEthink…REEpeat what works!

By markwehner - 9th November 2012

One key component of entrepreneurial success…”Once you find something that works…REEpeat it!” Like an offensive coach of a football team…if you run a play…and it works…keep running the same play until the defense proves it can stop it.  Too many times successful entrepreneurs enter a downward spiral…in energy…resources…and finances when they move away from activities and strategies that produce the desired results.  This typically happens when the entrepreneur gets either bored…or think they need to change for change sake. Entrepreneurs...
