A month ago or so, I met Ronen Gafni, the author of The New Entrepreneurz, in New York. He shared some of his insights on the new entrepreneurial mindset and I confess, my Dear Readers, I played the devil’s advocate (I can’t help! Sometimes the lawyer I have inside comes out.), even though I felt we were sharing the same approach on how to play the business game, and perhaps also the life game. He did it quite well because he left me wanting to learn more about the Win-to-the-Winth-Power thinking of the New Entrepreneurz.
So who are the New Entrepreneurz or FreshBizers?
(1) They are multidimensional.
FreshBiz, like Life, is a multidimension game. Constantly I returned to the guiding principle that life is not a one-dimensional game. It’s a multidimensional, just as people are: Each of us plays multiple roles and has multiple talents. FreshBiz was founded as a multidimensional game where you, the player, get to play any or all of them at any given time as a way of expressing yourself; limited only by your creativity.
(2) They play life with a Win-to-the-Winth-Power mindset.
These are the ones who flick their magic wands to expand life, innovate seamlessly, create quantum leaps, and even have an air of serious playfulness as they do it. They make running organizations, businesses, and charities look and play fun!
(3) They design a life framework with their desired lifestyle already built in
This group sees business and productivity itself as a lifestyle, where every day of the journey is challenging, fulfilling, and fun, just like the lifestyle they thrive on.
This new breed of entrepreneurs are game changers. What makes them different is their attitude about who they are and why they’re doing what they do.
The New Entrepreneurz are purpose driven, strong believers in smart work, and great collaborators.
(4) They play in a team.
New Entrepreneurz also understand that playing and winning works better in a team than alone. Teaming up used to work only if you were in a company or part of a college system. All those Lone Worker entrepreneurs walked a lonely path, knowing they had to make it on their own with no one helping them with the game.
Nowadays you can be part of a team even when you’re the only employee in your business. You can join Facebook and LinkedIn groups, go to Meetups, log in to forums, and plug in to coworking spaces as an entrepreneur to play as a team.
(5) They understand the power of sharing
New Entrepreneurz understand the power of sharing: They share information, knowledge, experiences, connections, opportunities, and Action Cards.
