Why Entrepreneurs Are Natural Thought Leaders

In a recent Leveraging Thought Leadership podcast with Bill Sherman,

I talked about Entrepreneurs and thought leadership in practice.

Bill called Entrepreneurship  a “first cousin” of thought leadership.  My position is stronger.  I believe that startup founders and entrepreneurs are natural thought leaders.  Here’s why:

Entrepreneurs and thought leaders both have a talent for envisioning future trends – but entrepreneurs don’t just think about the future.  They typically build their vision into a product, a service and a dynamic organization.  Entrepreneurs want their vision to have a lasting, deep and positive social impact.  So they don’t just talk the future -they are busy bringing it into being.

It was a great conversation!  To listen to the podcast visit Bill’s website.
