Brandon Frere: If You Need to Choose, Be an Effective Entrepreneur Instead of an Efficient Entrepreneur

Team Effort

Many entrepreneurs are willing to come up with a product and go straight to work, but that work may not be the most effective thing that they can do. There are a lot of efficient entrepreneurs who measure their workload based on how many tasks they accomplish on a given day instead of measuring whether they accomplished something important. If they started the day by deciding which tasks are the most important, they might get more done. Brandon Frere, successful entrepreneur and CEO of Frere Enterprises, notes that these entrepreneurs should probably measure their day in how close they are to accomplishing their goals instead of in how many tasks they completed.

“While it is great to take pride in your work and have the willpower to work long hours, it is often more effective to take a second to think ‘What is the best thing I can do right now?’” said Brandon Frere. “Deciding what is the most essential thing to do with your time is the most important part towards your success.”

Information gathering is a necessary part of the entrepreneur’s workflow, and listening to the right information flow is often the best way to learn where to focus one’s efforts. It is likely that an effective entrepreneur is already doing this, and is probably listening to too much or is too involved with information searching. To be effective, entrepreneurs will need to decide the best ideas or tasks to focus on with the limited time that they have. The ability to decide which product or service is worth their attention and finding out the best way to deliver that product promptly may be one of the best intuitive traits that they can develop to increase their chances of success.

Deciding what is the most essential thing to do with your time is the most important part towards your success.

Once an entrepreneur decides which conversations are giving the best results, the job is half done. From there, the entrepreneurs can create the minimum viable product by discovering what their clients want. Wherever their customers gather, entrepreneurs want to be tuned in to their wants and needs. Often, entrepreneurs can develop a large portion of their product by listening to what the customer wants, then delivering exactly that.

While this advice is there to help use time more effectively, it is still necessary to commit to an idea to succeed. Jumping onto four separate products or working on five separate tasks simultaneously is sometimes a problem of focus, not a problem of efficiency.

“Being ambitious and hardworking is a great trait that so many effective entrepreneurs share,” said Frere. “If they can incorporate the right sort of listening with that hard-working attitude, they’ll probably do better. The kinds of conversations where you listen to and learn from the client are often the most important kinds of conversations to have.”
