Craving Success: Is Attitude Really Everything?
Young Female Entrepreneurs The first ever Young Female Entrepreneurs book club started last week! We are reading Melody Biringer’s Craving Success. Find out more about the Club and Melody’s book here: http://books.yfe.me. This is week three of four and you are just in time to jump in the conversation. Another set of discussion questions are below (check out week two set 1 and set 2), prepared by moderator Jessica. You still have time to buy the book (ebook) and jump in.
Week 3: Part 2 of YFE Book Club
We can clearly see that throughout Craving Success, that entrepreneurship runs through Melody’s veins. Part of this is shown in how she goes about her business relationships. It is a thread that runs through each of the ventures she has pursued and while there is most likely not an “Entrepreneurs Gene” per say, there are certain personality and value elements that are shared by those that claim that title.
At the end of Chapter 18, Melody says shares her thoughts on the subject. She states, “It’s really valuable to have someone who is either already connected or demonstrates an ability to establish credible relationships quickly. I used to think attitude was everything and that people can be taught, but now I think differently.” Taking this into consideration, let’s discuss how relationships come into play with running a business.
What can we glean from Melody’s experience as YFEs in terms of what to look for when considering working with others (whether it be hiring employees, purchasing vendor services, or collaborating on joint ventures)?
On the flip-side how can we translate the passion we have for our work into a healthy attitude towards our own client/customer relations?
