Your entrepreneurial type

Understand your entrepreneurial type and how to overcome your common pains

Executors excel at transforming founders’ ambitions into reality. They execute well but aren’t as challenging of founders’ decisions.

Some of them are leaders while others are supporters. They’re essential in making a company grow. Since they’re more concrete than conceptual, they believe what they see and may test things out more than others.

Where you can excel

Common mistakes and how to overcome them

As an executor type, you excel at scaling ideas. That’s because you focus on day-to-day tasks while other entrepreneurs styles may think too much long term.
It’s all about finding a balance, you may focus too much on actual tasks and forget the big picture, the vision you have for your company.

  • You may dedicate a lot of time working toward one goal and forget the big picture and use of this specific goal.
  • You may work towards multiple goals at once without thinking about why you’re doing it.
How to overcome it

You’re a concrete person, that’s why having a vision seems strange to you. A vision isn’t a defined thing but more of a blurred idea. You’re not always comfortable with it because you like concrete things, not blurred ones. But you can improve this!

  • Each time you dedicate time to a task, ask yourself how it helps your company be closer to its meaning and vision.
  • For you, it may be easier to think more about the company’s values than vision. What are your brand’s values? This will help you get closer to your vision.

As a designer type (your secondary type), you will love working on the aesthetics and experience your product provides. Which colors, how to speak, the elevator speech, logos, values etc. Thinking about this is great, and even more so when you can balance it with other business aspects.

  • Since you love your brand’s aesthetic, you may always be adding new features to enrich the experience of the product.
  • You may polish details and dedicate too much time to aesthetics and the experience of the product.
How to overcome it

You’re an open minded kind of person, which means you tend to keep your possibilities open. It’s great to experience and try new things. It also means that you may need more energy to stay efficient and focused. Here’s how to help you

  • Dedicate less time for each task and measure it. For example, if you want to add features or work on the brand’s aesthetics, use a stop watch and don’t work too long on it.
  • When working on designing things, ask yourself, “is this nurturing my business?” ; “In which ways will my company grow if I complete this task?”

As an executor type, you focus on day-to-day tasks, which is great when scaling. Since you’re open minded, you keep yourself open to new things and it may trap you into having too many things to try, resulting in a great lack of focus.

  • Anything can stop you from being focused
  • You may even try to find distracting things
How to overcome it
  • Use the pomodoro technique, less time but more focus each time.
  • Take jobs and tasks where you can multitask and jump from one thing to another.
  • Learn to say no, people may ask or offer many things that will distract you. It’s important to ask yourself “is this really worth it?”
