MBA1091 How to Have More Fun While Running a Business

We all know entrepreneurship is hard work. But if it’s not fun, what’s the point?

In order for your business to be successful, it has to be enjoyable. That’s not some feel-good naivete — it’s a cold, hard fact of business. If it sucks, it isn’t sustainable. You have to take some pleasure in your business, or your motivation will fail. You have to look forward to what you’re doing, because the business depends entirely on your doing it.

Today, we discuss how to create a more fun experience, by actively encouraging good times and inviting positive vibes into your company. We’ve got 7 specific ways you can make fun happen for you and your team, so the work becomes brighter, better, and less of a friggin’ drag.

It won’t eliminate stress, and it won’t make work easier, but it will make running your business more rewarding, more enjoyable, and more likely to succeed. As entrepreneurs, we have to choose fun, not just hope for it. Click Play!
