The Skills of your Trade are not the same as the Talents of Running a Business

Posted by Kevin Ahearn on June 20, 2013 at 12:20 AM

The skills of a particular trade help you develop the technician within; if you spend 3 years at a technical school learning the trade of becoming an Electrician, then you hope to get a job working for a business that offers those skills – that schooling does not prepare you to run a business that offers electric repairs and installation.

 

Entrepreneurs start facing challenges when they confuse their Technical Skill with the Running of a Business that offers those Technical Skills. Being a good Real Estate Agent with the skills of helping Buyers and Sellers does not automatically graduate one to running a Real Estate Brokerage. You must bring a Business Mindset to your Business and expand your skills past your trade technical skills.

 

Michael Gerber, in his book the E-Myth Revisited, calls this confusion a Fatal Assumption; and he writes it this way: ‘The Fatal Assumption that many Small Business Owners commit is: if you understand the technical work of a business, you understand a business that does that technical work.’
