Are you a servant leader, entrepreneur, and business owner feeling exhausted?

Being a servant leader, entrepreneur, and business owner isn’t just about going to work, earning money, and going home. It’s about working smarter, not harder, and fostering humanity, leadership, and the empowerment of people. Life is not about who earns the most money by the time they die; it’s about much more. As a servant leader, entrepreneur, and business owner, you choose a lifestyle with a purpose that benefits your local community, your family, and your business.

Remember, your work is not your life; it is a part of your life. #WorkSmarterNotHarder and avoid pressuring people with emails and work after office hours. Business and life are not short sprints; they are marathons.

You may not be the most important person in the world—perhaps your ego thinks otherwise—but you are certainly the most important person in your own life. However, do not despair. As Albert Einstein wisely said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”


Feeling the imposter syndrome?

You have 86,400 seconds each day as an entrepreneur and business owner to improve by 1% to reach your personal goals and your business goals. Work smarter, not harder by appreciating the present moment. When you fail, learn from it, grow, and take action. When feeling lost ask questions from a mentor. Become a mentor and pass on your experience as a servant leader giving service to your local community and the next generation. Write down your goals each day. Use these two rules to guide you:

Rule 1: “We should have started yesterday at dinner time being kind to other humans and AI because today it may be too late for dessert.” – Anders K.S. Ahl

Rule 2: “You take people as far as you would like them to go.” – Jeanette Rankin

Remember, every second is an opportunity for growth and improvement in your life.

Do you want to Work smarter, not harder as a Servant leader and entrepreneur?

A Servant leader and entrepreneur isn’t just someone who commands, but one who empathizes, serves, and inspires. In entrepreneurship, like in this vivid depiction of sacrifice and guidance, true leadership means knowing the path, walking it yourself, and then lighting the way for others to follow. John C. Maxwell once said, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” Let this artwork be a reminder of the profound impact our actions have on those we lead.


“There is no failure. Only feedback” – Robert Allen

As obstacles and rejections in life close doors and opportunities disappear or are postponed, it is easy for a servant leader to become emotional and feel disappointed, especially when a lot of effort, energy, prestige, and time have been invested both professionally and personally. One perspective to handle and deal with these thoughts and feelings regarding disappointment and self-pity is to change perspective: “There is no failure. Only feedback,” as stated by Robert Allen. Once you have landed on and accepted this new perspective, it is time to take action and stop feeling sorry for yourself regarding feelings of rejection and defeat by obstacles that you have not yet overcome to achieve your goals. One piece of advice I have personally used and highly recommend is “Mistakes should be examined, learned from, and discarded; not dwelled upon and stored.”This quote is attributed to Robert Allen. It is not easy to do, but it works.


“A leader is a dealer in hope.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

7 things that affect the result for your business as an entrepreneur and small business owner

1. Customer focus
2. Attitude

4. Being honest
5. Being prepared
6. Being a Servant leader
7. Take action


As Maya Angelou famously said, “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” As a Servant leader, you control how you lead, how you inspire, and how you communicate. You can also control your energy level to a certain point. Just remember, leadership is not about you; it’s about being present, truth-seeking, and serving others to strive for and achieve excellence. If you fail, learn from it and change. If you succeed with your Servant leadership, learn from it and share the tacit knowledge and experience with the next generation, and transform your understanding of success into kindness and humility. Or, as George Bernard Shaw stated, “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

From a servant leadership point of view I always try to understand and acknowledge the people I have the priviliege to serve. Every second in life both personal and professional should be a second of taking on step towards their goals. If they strive at work. Our organisation will so too. Or as C.S. Lewis wisley said it: “It is easy to acknowledge, but almost impossible to realize for long, that we are mirrors whose brightness, if we are bright, is wholly derived from the sun that shines upon us.”


Do you agree? Why? Why not?

“It’s not the situation, but whether we react (negative) or respond (positive) to the situation that’s important.” – Zig Ziglar
