The 3 Headed Monster
I pointed out within my publish a couple of days ago which i spent the weekend studying a magazine about beginning your company. It discusses the truth that all business proprietors (especially small, one-person companies) need to consider running their company in the outlook during three various kinds of people.
I refer to this as the 3 Headed Monster.
The Specialist (Or Videographer/Editor)
This is when the majority of us are whenever we start our video production companies. We’re either fed up with employed by “the person” and believe we are able to make use of this skill to embark on our very own or we simply think it might be awesome to create videos as a living. This really is great initially if we are looking forward to the options of the items the long run may hold but as we obtain a couple of several weeks or perhaps a couple of years in it, we understand that it requires much more to become effective running a business rather than just cover the cost of an excellent video.
It’s difficult to operate a company should you only operate inside this “mind.”
The Manager (Or Video Producer, Production Manager, Director)
This is actually the a part of our business where we must furthermore the job, but we must manage others helping us perform the work – Scheduling, managing quality, making deadlines, collecting materials from clients, etc. Generally, this is actually the section of our business that triggers the dreaded “burn up” and why lots of very gifted videographers/editors fail.
If you realise how you can better manage the position inside this “mind” that you can do well within this business, although not in addition to if you’re able to master the following “mind” as well as the previous two.
The Entrepreneur (Or Visionary, Systems Maker, Rainmaker)
This is actually the a part of our way of life which makes the company grow to some extent where we make greater than $100,000 annually doing what we should love. However , the “Specialist” and “Manager” in us obstruct constantly which holds us back. The Entrepreneur creates building systems therefore the previous two responsibilities become simpler as time passes even if you’re the main one doing everything. It’s very important this “mind” constantly improves regarding overall business skills, settlement tactics, networking, etc. so the other two “heads” have a need to exist.
