Attend the 2nd Disciplines of Breakthrough Entrepreneurs with the country’s #1 speaker Francis J. Kong, himself a highly successful entrepreneur, who will share insights on how you can achieve a breakthrough in your business. This is happening on June 18, 2011, 1:00-6:00pm, at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.

Why are some entrepreneurs successful when so many others fail?

Attention: Business Owners, Startups, and Aspiring Entrepreneurs…The best-selling seminar for entrepreneurs is back! Whether you’re a fledgling entrepreneur or a seasoned business owner — or still thinking of becoming your own boss — you need to know what differentiates the 5% of successful entrepreneurs from the 95% that fail!

Learn how to become one of the 5% of entrepreneurs who succeed!

Close to 9 out of 10 start-ups fail in their first year. Of those that survive, only half make it past five years. That’s just 5% that breaks through the odds. The rest break up too soon.

What makes some entrepreneurs more successful than others? What disciplines do they do that let them achieve a breakthrough and take their business to the next level?

What does it mean to be a breakthrough entrepreneur? First let’s define what “breakthrough” means, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Pronunciation: ’brāk-‘thrü
Function: noun
1: an offensive thrust that penetrates and carries beyond a defensive line in warfare
2: an act or instance of breaking through an obstacle <a breakthrough agreement>
3a: a sudden advance especially in knowledge or technique <a medical breakthrough> b: a person’s first notable success <a breakthrough novel>

So in other words, a breakthrough entrepreneur is one who has penetrated or overcome an obstacle – in this case overwhelming odds of failure! – and has achieved a sudden advance or a notable success in his or her business. Do you want to be a breakthrough entrepreneur?

Francis J. Kong will share 10 disciplines – practices and habits – that separate successful entrepreneurs from the struggling ones. He will teach not just the WHAT but the WHY and the HOW. These are the 10 Disciplines of Breakthrough Entrepreneurs:

  • Discipline #1: Breakthrough Entrepreneurs have a junkyard dog mentality. Are you persistent with your business? Or are you easily shaken and give up quickly? Breakthrough entrepreneurs are like junkyard dogs — they are tenacious and hang on no matter what because they are focused on their goals.
  • Discipline # 2: Breakthrough Entrepreneurs are committed to devote their time and energy on their idea. Do you make time in your day or week threshing out your ideas that have potential? Breakthrough entrepreneurs put in time and effort into bringing your ideas to fruition.
  • Discipline #3: Breakthrough entrepreneurs like working with people. Do you enjoy working with other people or would you rather work alone? Breakthrough entrepreneurs like working with people and dealing with all sorts of personalities.
  • Discipline #4: Breakthrough entrepreneurs focus on the solution, not on the problem. If there’s a problem, do you spend time finger pointing or fault finding? Breakthrough entrepreneurs acknowledge the problem, quickly identity the cause, and move on to finding a solution.
  • Discipline #5: Breakthrough entrepreneurs are willing to share the pie with others. Are you a believer in winner-take-all and zero-sum games? Or do you believe in win-win and are willing share the pie with others? Breakthrough entrepreneurs  are big on having strategic partners and generous incentives to employees.
  • Discipline #6: Breakthrough entrepreneurs are always itching for something new. Are you content with what you’ve accomplished? Or do you keep trying to shake things up? Breakthrough entrepreneurs are always experimenting and trying new things.
  • Discipline #7: Breakthrough entrepreneurs are innovators. Do you believe in the adage “don’t fix it if it ain’t broken?” Or do you enjoy experimenting and doing something different? Breakthrough entrepreneurs are creative and innovative in their business approach.
  • Discipline #8: Breakthrough entrepreneurs have adequate backup resources. When you start a business or launch a new product or project, do you go “all in?” Or do you have adequate resources in case something goes wrong? Breakthrough entrepreneurs always make sure they have a Plan B.
  • Discipline #9: Breakthrough entrepreneurs are lifetime learners. Do you think training and investing in learning is a waste of time and money? Are are you always learning new things? Breakthrough entrepreneurs are open to new ideas, knowledge, and information — and are willing to invest in learning.
  • Discipline #10: Breakthrough entrepreneurs know and live out their winning business philosophy. Is money all there is to it for your business? Or do you consider your business also in terms of your purpose? Breakthrough entrepreneurs serve a cause higher than themselves.
