It is evident that entrepreneurship is not for everyone as much as most of us want to be our own bosses. There are a couple of ways to know if entrepreneurship is meant for you or not. Some compelling questions that can make you aware of your stand include what it takes to be a leader and whether you can lead yourself to be able to conduct your business and employees in the future. Many traits have been associated with successful entrepreneurs among them being hard work, passion, perseverance, high self-motivation, willingness to fail and a whole bunch of other attributes.
But today, I would like to talk about something different that is more or less associated with the qualities of successful entrepreneurs. Starting a business takes a lot and requires a solid plan to push through but that’s not all. It takes more than this to keep a business afloat. The trick is to establish a business with a soul and not just build it for the sake of it. It might be challenging to define entrepreneurial soul, but once you go through it, you get a vivid picture of what I’m talking about. In some articles, they describe it as passion or inner drive. Entrepreneurial soul necessarily means the things that give you purpose. This is a principal factor for every flourishing business-those with an internal drive and for sure most customers will be die hard clients of such businesses. A business without a soul is as good as chocolate without sugar.
Having a soul does not actually have a long-term impact on the economy or the culture as a whole. The soul is an essential factor, insipid is not.
A perfect example is Marc Sparks, the Chairman, Director and Chief Executive Officer of Unistar Financial Service Corp. who through his comprehensive and distinctive experience in the insurance, investment banking, surety bonding and premium finance sectors, Sparks has sparked the world with various ventures in these areas. His inner drive and passion for these fields have made him successful in establishing and managing different companies. Focusing on the soul again, Marc Sparks has gone in-depth by founding Great Southern General Agency, International Surety & Casualty Company, Advanced Underwriters, Eagle Underwriters, Eagle Premium Finance Company among others.
He is also certified by the Texas Department of Insurance as a Managing General Agent (MGA), Surplus Lines Agent and has a Texas Premium Finance license
