Do You Know Your Entrepreneur Archetype?

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Humans are a diverse bunch, and entrepreneurs are no exception. We all have our own blend of strengths, challenges, and life experiences. Yet, amidst this diversity, there are common patterns and characteristics that many entrepreneurs share. Like brands do; entrepreneurs often fall into one of 5 main archetypes — sort of like personality types, for business leaders. 

So, why should you care? Archetypes can help us understand ourselves better and play to our strengths as we navigate the ups and downs of the business landscape, regardless of industry.

So let’s kick off, with the expert archetype. Pretty self explanatory, experts are masters of their craft, often spending more time honing their skills to perfection before diving into business. They excel at solving complex problems, drawing on both theoretical knowledge and practical experience. However, experts may struggle with the more typically ‘business’ side of things, like marketing, or their finances. For experts, freeing up time on monotonous tasks is usually crucial to keep things moving.

Next, we have the innovator. These are the trailblazers, the ones who thrive on risk and creativity. Your friend who started a business out of the blue with no experience, but is somehow kicking goals? Likely an innovator. They're always pushing the boundaries, coming up with new solutions to old problems. But their willingness to take risks can sometimes lead them to financial troubles if they don't bring their products to market fast enough, or can’t reach the right audience.

Third is the visionary archetype, driven by big ideas, bold stances and charisma. These leaders have a clear vision of the future and the ability to inspire others to follow them. They’re naturally popular people with networking one of their strongest suits. But, they may struggle with focus and realism, sometimes chasing after dreams that are beyond their reach. For visionaries, business development strategies can help to keep progress moving forward towards those dreams; with milestones being completed along the way to build confidence and focus. 

Opposite to visionaries, we have builders. All about creation and growth, they're ambitious, resourceful, and highly organised. Think of them as the architects of business empires. The problem for a lot of builder archetypes is that they can sometimes become overly controlling, micromanaging their teams instead of trusting them to get the job done. Focusing on employee value is often a key focus for builders trying to recruit and retain strong teams. 

Finally, we have the delegator, who has already built their empire, and now focuses on passing the torch to others. For a lot of entrepreneurs, becoming this archetype is often seen as the end-goal. Delegators are skilled at assigning tasks and authority, which allows them to focus on the big picture (often, building more business empires). Delegators often find they may need to learn to let go of control and trust their team more fully.

So where do you fall? Maybe, you’re somewhere between two. And that’s likely to evolve even more, over time. The point being, each entrepreneur archetype has its own strengths and weaknesses; so the key is to be aware of these traits and learn to manage them effectively. Whether you're a dreamer or a strategist, there are ways to cultivate the skills you need to succeed. It might mean seeking out certain services, networking opportunities or collaborations; it might mean investing in training for yourself and your team.

Whatever your archetype is, success as an entrepreneur is about self-awareness and continuous growth. By understanding your own strengths and weaknesses, you can chart a course for success and become the hero of your own story.
