Take a Chance

Tara Joyce @ Venture Capital IT 2009 from Gesventure on Vimeo.



Na sequência da sua intervenção no Venture Capital IT 2009 em Portugal, Tara Joyce preparou o seguinte artigo que fez questão de partilhar connosco neste blog.

 

On the anniversary of my first year as an entrepreneur, I was overjoyed and shocked to receive an invitation from Francisco and his passionate team at Gesventure to speak at their VCIT 2009 congress on the topic of  Innerpreneurs.

  

Just a year before I had made the terrifying but empowering decision to start my own business. It was a monumental decision for me as I was admitting my passions - writing and the web - and developing a plan to pursue them absolutely. I was determined to create a career that had meaning to my life and others lives.

 

 

 

The Leap... into Entrepreneurship

 

The decision to become an entrepreneur is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions. You are deciding to take a chance at creating your own destiny and this requires authentic confidence in your abilities, your ideas and the world.

 

But to gain this confidence you first need the opportunity to exercise your talents and test your abilities. Francisco and his Gesventure and GesEntrepreneur teams create opportunities for people to educate and empower themselves and discover their inner entrepreneur.

 

Francisco provided me with my first professional speaking opportunity and a platform to spread my ideas on meaningful capitalism. As a new entrepreneur, only one year young, it was a powerful affirmation to be invited, and to be supported and promoted by  a congress focused on what is possible in business.

 

The Rise of the Innerpreneur

 

I was invited to speak on the idealistic new breed of entrepreneur, the Innerpreneur. Motivated by our values, our businesses are built on authenticity, meaning, and conscious action. We understand that a truly sustainable business focuses on the triple bottom line - people, plant and profit.

 

Creative and holistic, in a culture and industry where profit is often the only measure of ‘success’, Innerpreneurs, unaware that there are others like them, feel alone in their business practices. But there’s a whole lot of us so it’s critical we become aware of a larger us in order for us to grow and to encourage the change needed. VCIT 2009 provided the first offline avenue for the Innerpreneur truth to spread.

 

Society is evolving and Business must evolve with it. The stronger the voice to empower this necessary change, the quicker it will happen. We need more enterprises like Gesentrepreneur educating and promoting Business as a means to create a sane, sustainable, value-based economy. It’s the truth we all need to hear.

Entrevista de Tara Joyce

Hoje deixo-vos a entrevista dada por Tara Joyce - Consultora Web Independente e Escritora / Innerpreneur ao Diário Económico durante a sua presença no 9º VCIT.

O que é um Innerpreneur?
Um Innerpreneur é alguém que vê os seus negócios como um modo de realização pessoal (criativamente, espiritualmente, emocionalmente) e criação de mudança social.
Acreditam que um negócio pode trazer realização pessoal. Que a criatividade e a consciência podem mudar o mundo. Que devemos fazer coisas nas quais nos revemos e que gostamos.
Que devemos aprender e evoluir continuamente. É alguém que descobriu qual é o seu propósito de vida e trabalho e iniciou um negócio ligado a esse propósito e que tem criatividade para ver o mundo de formas únicas e um impulso para fazer as coisas diferentes.

Entrevista
Tara Joyce é uma escritora e consultora web que é apaixonada e defensora acérrima de um mundo de negócios como um meio de desenvolvimento pessoal.

Sabe o que é um Innerpreneur?


 

An innerpreneur is an entrepreneur who use their business to find personal fulfillment (creatively, spiritually, emotionally) and create social change.
 

You may have heard the terms ‘creative class‘, ‘creative capitalism‘, or ‘cultural creative‘ used to describe us as well. Basically, we want to use business to improve the world and ourselves.

We have the defining entrepreneurial traits. We have a(n):

  • high need for achievement
  • high need for independence
  • low need for conformity
  • internal locus of control
  • love of ambiguity
  • propensity for risk-taking
  • obsession with opportunity

But innerpreneurs are characteristically different as we start businesses to aid in our personal growth rather than that of a company’s. We start our businesses so we can find personal fulfillment and satisfaction through our work.

We are driven by our need to realize our full potential, to make a difference and to constantly learn and evolve.

Further Characteristics of an Innerpreneur

  • you believe you should do what you are and what you love
  • you see the world in a different way than most
  • you let your values and passion for exploration guide your life
  • you have an innate need to be creative and honest, to follow your own unique path
  • you want to make things different; you are attracted to industries that improve the world
  • you may alternate periods of career focus with periods of reflection and/or adventure
