Entrepreneurs are natural wayfinders. They puzzle through mazes to emerge with new answers to old problems and pursue their dreams of achieving impact wherever they are. They might be in a job, self-employed, working in their own or someone else’s business, or volunteering to expertly serve their communities.
We like to believe that entrepreneurs possess Superman-like speed, vision, strength, and ability to keep getting back up when knocked down by forces (or fears?) that keep many of us doing the same-old thing far too long.
Entrepreneurial super-powers might be debatable, but one thing isn’t. In this digitally networked era, the most successful wayfinders will connect to ideas and people on the internet to learn; find their way; apply learning; and draw maps for others to follow. Net-savvy entrepreneurs recognize that working must involve learning in order to improve performance and succeed in the long-term. And they realize that most learning opportunities online are free.
