What Drives an Entrepreneur Part 2

What Drives an Entrepreneur P.2

What drives an entrepreneur part 2

Hey there, my name is Rick Morsovillo and this is the second installment in my series on what motivates an entrepreneur to do what they do. Is it money? Success? Autonomy? Or do entrepreneurs just have big egos? In this blog, I discuss what I found when I asked a number of my entrepreneurial friends. Click here, to read part 1.

6. Family

So many entrepreneurs enjoy the simple fact that their family can be an integral part of their business. Many more enjoy the luxury to be as involved in their family as they want. I love that I get to be a coach to my son and his friends. I love that I can pick up the phone whenever I want to talk with my wife, and I don’t have to worry about my boss getting upset with me. My family knows that my work is important, and they support me in that. In turn, I feel a strong desire to support them in the things that matter most to them.

7. Change

Several entrepreneurs enjoy the ability to be an active proponent of change and efficiency. As a consultant, I work hard to help my clients increase proficiency and maximize their businesses’ potentials. With certainty, I can say that what I do makes a change for the better of my clients. So many other entrepreneurs enjoy this truth too.

8. Legacy

Most entrepreneurs are building their legacies every single day. This is the freedom of opportunity available to any entrepreneur. The legacy I gladly leave to my children is this: hard work and perseverance lead to financial success. I am a big proponent of people being able to pursue their dreams. I would highly encourage all entrepreneurially minded individuals to identify the legacy that they want to leave. Then, find a business solution that will assist them in obtaining that legacy.

9. Achievement

Entrepreneurs are no strangers to achievement. Every bit of success is related to a good business decision on their part. I love the personal sense of accomplishment that comes every day as I pursue my dreams and achieve the reality that I seek.

10. Control

Many entrepreneurs are driven by the security that comes with having full control of what they do. Every individual gets to determine how hard they work. As an entrepreneur, I am empowered to set my own schedule, accomplish my own tasks, and be in control of everything I do.

I’m a major believer that cash is not what drives individuals to work hard. On the off chance that you need effective, and successful employees, think of what drives you to be successful. Is it opportunity, adaptability, social obligation, or the capacity to do incredible work? Give your workforce chances to flourish in these regions, and you won’t need to manage employees who are spurred just by cash. In the same light, discover what motivates you, and pursue that with the utmost dedication.

Fun Friday 4

Fun Friday 4 release

Hey there, I started writing this blog series as a way for you to get to know a bit more about me and the things that inspire me. For that reason, this blog series is focused on the same three questions every week:

  1. What song has been my jam this week, and why?

  2. What is a lesson that you have learned this week?

  3. What is something that you have been thankful for this week?

Now, on to the reason we are here!

1- This week I am feeling mesmerized by this flashback from the 70’s called Wild World by Cat Stevens. I am a huge fan of the simple, melodic, reverb tunes of old. They just don’t make good quality music like that nowadays

2- This week I learned that kids cannot grow unless you give them freedom. I tend to be more on the strict side of parenting, however, this week I took a chance with one of my sons and gave him more freedom than I usually do.  I watched him take that freedom responsibly. Had I sheltered him, he would not have had the chance to learn on his own.

3- Lastly, I am very thankful for my Green Egg. This is absolutely the best grill ever invented! In case you have not heard of one, a Green Egg is essentially an over-sized, egg-shaped grill/smoker/oven that thoroughly cooks food while keeping it nice and moist. I spend a lot of time grilling so I can taste the Big Green Egg difference.

Well, that is it for this week. Stay tuned for next week’s Fun Friday! Again, my name is Rick Morsovillo and thanks for stopping by.

What Drives an Entrepreneur Part 1

What Drives an Entrepreneur P.1

What drives an entrepreneur part 1

Hey there, my name is Rick Morsovillo and in my time as an entrepreneur, I have had the opportunity to discuss the many motivational factors and reasons as to why an individual would embrace the risks associated with becoming an entrepreneur. Is it money? Success? Autonomy? Or do entrepreneurs just have big egos?

Being a business person myself, I needed to know why others work with tireless devotion. For me, I’ve realized it’s not just about the cash, although cash is a great benefit. So is it the same for others? What I found was that there are many motivators behind business persons and their drive for entrepreneurial success.

If not cash, what are business visionaries driven by? This article discusses the 10 most common reasons that I have identified.

1. Opportunity

To many entrepreneurs, opportunity is king. Many entrepreneurs love the opportunities they have to set their own schedule, pursue their passions, hire staff to handle the aspects of their business they want to avoid, and love the lives they lead. I absolutely love the ability I have to be a father to my children and to be a part of their lives. I love the fact that I can support my family and be a provider for my wife in all of the ways that she looks to me to sustain our family. Additionally, I love that I get to work through my strengths in helping businesses succeed to meet my family’s financial needs. Most importantly, I can spend as much time with my family as I want.

2. Self-Rule

A few business people just need to keep away from the everyday routine. As an entrepreneur, I get to be independent and take the job opportunities that I want. I do not have to fulfill the traditional 8-5 job while working for someone else. Essentially, I get to be my own boss.

3. Freedom

Many entrepreneurs enjoy the freedom that comes with choosing their own daily tasks, and they get to pick when to fulfill their “office” time. Through my company, E&M Management, I have the flexibility to choose which companies I consult and to which companies I provide services. Additionally, many entrepreneurs enjoy being able to service companies with similar values.

4. Obligation to society

So many entrepreneurs enjoy their ability to service and assist other companies in making the world a better place. Many entrepreneurs incorporate this driving force into the mission and vision of their companies; quite a few of the most profitable businesses got their starts from driven entrepreneurs. I would highly encourage any business-minded person that wants to impact the world: review personal skill sets; start a company that will allow fulfillment of this drive; allow the experience of empowerment that can come from this success.

5. Impact

Who doesn’t enjoy the feeling that what they do matters? Who doesn’t appreciate knowing that they are making a difference in the world? As an entrepreneur, I know that every decision I make has an impact on my business and my life. I get to enjoy the success and fruit of my decisions every single day, and that fact is significant to me.

Fun Friday 3

Fun Friday 3: Hot Off the Press!

Hello again. My hope is that through this blog series, you will get to know a bit more about me and the things that inspire me. This blog series is focused on the same three questions every week:

  1. What song has been my jam this week, and why?

  2. What is a lesson that you have learned this week?

  3. What is something that you have been thankful for this week?

Here we go with this week’s answers!

  1. This week I just cannot get enough of She’s a Bad Mama Jama by Carl Carlton. I am a big believer in funky vibes and rhythms that just make you want to dance. That is why I just cannot get enough of this song this week!
  2. This week I learned a hard lesson… Sometimes, being right is not always a good thing. I always thought it was funny when someone whips back in movies that they are not happy they were right about something. But, not all things in life a great, and there are times when you have to pay consequences for being right.
  3. This week I am so thankful that the sun rises and sets everyday. Every morning there is a new sun rise that brings new opportunities for me and for you. I would like to encourage you to keep this in mind as you wake up in the morning. Regardless of what yesterday brought, you have the opportunity to shape your today.

Well, that is it for this week. Feel free to enjoy some of my other blogs in the mean time. Until next week, my name is Rick Morsovillo.

Hello again. My hope is that through this blog series, you will get to know a bit more about me and the things that inspire me. This blog series is focused on the same three questions every week:

  1. What song has been my jam this week, and why?

  2. What is a lesson that you have learned this week?

  3. What is something that you have been thankful for this week?

I have a rather unique set of answers for this week’s post and I am excited to share them with you!

  1. This week I have been captivated by Sideways by Citizen Cope and I just love the slowly building cascade of musical and lyrical rhythm.
  2. This week I learned what a “handler” is. A handler is somebody who supports a politician so that they can focus on their campaign. As it turns out, I was once a handler for Carly Fiorina even though I didn’t know it at the time.
  3. Rick Mosovillo with Carly FiorinaLastly, this week I am thankful for all the friends that I have met around the world. I think technology is pretty sweet and I love that it helps me stay in contact with people that I have met around the world.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s installment. I look forward to sharing more of my inspirations with you next week. Until then, my name is Rick Morsovillo and welcome again to my personal blog.

Fun Friday 1

Fun Friday Introduction

Hey all,

So, I have decided to begin a weekly blog series posted on Friday’s that shares a little bit more about me and my inspirations. I have noticed this growing trend among us entrepreneurs as we seek to share more about ourselves with those that follow us. Through this blog series, you will get to know a bit more about me and the fun quirks that move me. This basic blog is centered around the same three questions every week:

  1. What song has been my jam this week, and why?

  2. What is a lesson that you have learned this week?

  3. What is something that you have been thankful for this week?

Now, on to the good stuff!

  1. This week my main jam is Inner City Blues by Marvin Gaye. I just love that cool funky vibe!
  2. This week I learned how to set up iCal so I can view my calendar on my phone. It might seem simple, but this has really saved me time, and was a lot easier than I had thought! If you have not done this yet on your iPhone, I would highly recommend it!
  3. This week I am so thankful for my family. I think I have the greatest family in the world, and I think it is just fine to be biased about that. I just love watching my boys grow up and become men.

And that’s it for this week’s Fun Friday! I hope you enjoyed my post and I look forward to sharing more in the future. Stay tuned for more weekly updates from me. Until then, my name is Rick Morsovillo.
