Building Trust as an Entrepreneur


How to Build Trust as an Entrepreneur

As an Entrepreneur it is imperative that we build trust. We need team members, clients, investors and colleagues to believe in us. Trust is more than a soft, unknown, feel good, fuzzy thing. It is a measurable and quantifiable asset that is one of the most important to you the Entrepreneur regarding the speed of your business and the overall success of your enterprise. In this Success U Podcast we discuss how taking the time to build trust actually saves time and in the end increases profit.

We started discussing this topic thanks to Steven Covey's Book "The Speed of Trust". This is a must read book for an Entrepreneur. It is not a topic I would normally have sought out, but it came recommended highly from those I trust... So I read it, and now I think every entrepreneur, manager, marketer or sales professional should also read it.

If You are an Entrepreneur You Should Read These Books:

The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything

Trust Agents: Using the Web to Build Influence, Improve Reputation, and Earn Trust

Tell us your story as an Entrepreneur in the comments and maybe we will have you on a future podcast!

With this information how will you keep your business on track? or more importantly, how will you the Entrepreneur make the next big thing, knowing that you cannot predict what tomorrow brings.
