8 Things Every Entrepreneur Must Have to Be Effective


Joanna Ratur, Negosentro | Being a successful entrepreneur is one of the most difficult things a human being can accomplish. There’s a reason why 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. To say that the deck is stacked against you is an understatement. Despite what we see in the over-hyped Silicon Valley startup culture of business today, entrepreneurship is actually on the decline. With competition growing stronger both online and offline, entrepreneurs need something to keep them going, because oftentimes it’s not the business itself that stops working, it’s the entrepreneur that loses faith and gives up too quickly.

Here are 7 things from I Can Be Society that every entrepreneur must have to be effective:

Motivational Wristband


A motivational wristband is probably the most effective tool an entrepreneur can have in his/her arsenal. It’s waterproof; you can sleep in it; and if you wanted to, you could keep it on forever. Ok, maybe that last one is a bit extreme, but I think you get the point. A rubber wristband with words of encouragement will help you keep going when you’re ready to give up. Unlike anything else, it just sits there staring you in the face every time you have that nagging thought about quitting. It’s right there to remind you to never give up!

You know that look people get when they see someone wearing a funny tshirt? First they squint to read the words and then they grin. Imagine the look you’ll get when you’re wearing a motivational tshirt. Instead of grins, you’ll get head nods of respect. These tees are perfect for business meetings, meetups, biz dev conferences, etc. If you’re an entrepreneur shout it loud and proud with one of these tshirts. You may be surprised when an influencer walks up to you with respect. This just may be what you need to close that next business deal.

Motivational Pillow

“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Throw-Pillows-For-CouchLord my business to keep… going!” Ok, that was a nursery rhyme that was slightly modified, but you get it right? If you need some motivation to keep going, you have to start and end the day in the right frame of mind. What better than a motivational pillow to go to sleep and wake up to that sends you positive vibes and words of encouragement.

Let me guess… You’ve probably got an iPhone case with some lame plain matte back design or maybe your case has some multi-colored geometric shapes. Use that space to brighten your day! With a motivational iPhone case, you can flip over you phone all day and get the surge of success you need to keep going strong. Did you know that the average person checks their phone over 90 times a day! Think about it, that’s 90 times that you can remind yourself to GET SHIT DONE!
