The main tasks of an entrepreneur, or what and how to do if you are an entrepreneur
Being an entrepreneur, or at least a successful entrepreneur, is not just about quitting your job and starting your own business. A successful entrepreneur (or someone who wants to become one) has much more serious tasks. Today we are going to talk about what the main tasks of an entrepreneur are.
7 main tasks that an entrepreneur must solve
It’s not easy writing a business plan, much less one based on a template downloaded from the web. Anyone can write a business plan (from a template, moreover). Another thing is how competent and effective such a plan is. But not everyone can actually plan their business, choose the right direction and build a strategic development plan, unfortunately. Simply because there is no understanding of the value of it. All right, I will not go deeper, the topic is a little different.
Organizing your business so that the business grows and develops is not that the main task, but the real duty of the entrepreneur. Well, if he wants to develop, of course. If not, he doesn’t have to. To organize your business means to bring order, to introduce competent schemes of work, to ensure a high enough level of business operation. To put it simply, to set up business processes so that the director or the owner is not called on every detail.
This is to some extent part of the previous point. To delegate tasks and responsibilities, and to do it competently and effectively, is the main task of an entrepreneur. If you know how to do it, success is almost guaranteed. I believe in this. Just don’t think it’s so easy, you find someone to do it, you give the order, and that’s it. It’s not really like that.
Motivating your staff is the most important task of an entrepreneur. It’s not easy to do business on your own. Again, doing business, not working for yourself. These are different things. That’s why you need employees. But how they will work for you depends more on you than on them. They have to get a good wage, so that everything is organized officially and with tax deductions, and you have to work on that.

In business, you must control everything, things like money management and time management too. Must measure and control absolutely everything. Control of all business processes without exception is also quite reasonable in our list.
6. Team building
Already said that you have to motivate your employees. But you still have to bring them together, create a team that will work towards a common goal, i.e. your business, oddly enough. If you manage to unite your employees and create a team, the work will be much easier and more efficient.
You’ve motivated your employees, you’ve brought them together, but they still need to be trained. And in the classical sense to teach sales, negotiations, etc. (except, of course, if you have hired super specialists), and in the corporate sense, let’s call it that – to teach the values of your firm, your approaches, rules, etc.
