Michael Milnes started his own company in Rochester, Minnesota. He works as a physical therapist in this community to help people gain strength and recover from serious injuries. He is extremely well qualified and trained in many different physical therapy techniques and equipment so that all of his clients can benefit from their time in his office. Milnes is constantly learning new ways to help please his clients, but he also has to run his business. Here are three tools all entrepreneurs need to keep their doors open to continue to offer their services to their communities:
- Good management. All entrepreneurs need to have their management teams fully on deck and ready to drive the company. Michael Milnes made sure to hire the best and brightest office managers and assistants so that all of his clients would feel comfortable and to help him with the task of running his business.
- Passion. It sounds simple, but all entrepreneurs need to be passionate about their products and services. Of course the goal of all businesses is to make money, but at the end of a very long day, entrepreneurs need to have the drive to get up early and do it all again. The odds are overwhelmingly against them at all times. The only way to survive is to want it more than their competitors.
- Funding. Entrepreneurs need enough capital to keep their businesses running for at least six months into the future so that even if their businesses don’t make enough money at all times to be self-sufficient—which is common in the first six months to a year or more—they can continue to operate.
