Obviously, “own it” is at the core of entrepreneurship, but this value goes much further than registering a business with a particular name. It’s about living your purpose. Taking responsibility for the people, ideas and challenges that are part of your business and community every day. Seeing something through from start to finish and understanding the impact and repercussions that it may present. It’s also about acknowledging your mistakes and learning from them. The only way a business can grow and thrive is if everyone in it feels ownership of their own work and the shared vision of the company. Titles and money don’t give us prestige or respect. People respect people they can believe in and trust. If they know you will deliver on your promise, they will want to be part of your company. Ownership gives people dignity and empowers change.
