The Young Female Entrepreneurs Book Club is reading Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky beginning June 11th for six weeks. Book Club Moderators Jessica Newell and Morgan Hatton are walking you through six weeks of prompts. We are on week 2 (view week 2: prompt 1 prompt 2). The book is available via eBook and in paperback form. Download a .pdf except here.
Part 2 of “Making Ideas Happen” starts out with a section dedicated defining what type of idea maker you are. Dreamers are “someone with real talent who never seems to get his or her act together.” Doers “don’t imagine as much because they are obsessively focused on the logistics of execution.” Incrementalists have “the ability to play the role of bothe Dreamer and Doer.”
The book goes on to to describe each of these in depth and explains why its good to surround yourself with people who are in a different category than you to balance things out. And that brings us to today’s question:
What kind of idea maker are you and who do you have in your life right now that helps balance out your ways?
