The EOTM Awards (www.eotmawards.com), now in its 2nd year, recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and success in areas such as the arts, community relations and philanthropy.
April 23, 2014 (Newswire) - Honoring key individuals demonstrating business excellence, innovation and profitability within their giving industries.
Right now the EOTM's are celebrating small victories from their launch in 2013 and hope to continue inspiring entrepreneurs that are doing their part to change the world.
"Entrepreneurs are synonymous with taking risks and working hard to achieve success, but not all ideas work out," Carla B., EOTM Awards founder said in a statement. "Those with the entrepreneurial resiliency to turn the lessons of experience into opportunities—and come out smarter and stronger—often rise above their counterparts.
These are the very individuals we aim to highlight," she added.
Citing a recent industry report, which states - 80 per cent of entrepreneurs that entered the marketplace in 2010 survived for only one year, and 72 per cent that entered in 2011 survived for two years.
Despite the odds, though, most entrepreneurs remain undeterred, with more than one-third of experienced entrepreneurs going on to successfully start another business or venture after a failure.
"Resiliency is an essential skill for EOTM Award nominees. With the EOTM's, we are aiming to recognize that failing is part of the entrepreneurial process," said Tawanda Cawthon, Marketing Director of EOTM Media Group.
"Yes, being in business is a high risk venture and growing a business is never a linear process. It is inevitable that entrepreneurs will face bumps in the road, some fatal. The important element is to make sure that they can apply what they have learned. This awards program is also aiming to change the mindset ...whereas having scars is a sign of weakness. In fact, it should be a sign of pride," Carla B., says.
