Entreprenuers and “Lobbying”

The political climate in recent years has made “lobbying” a dirty word. While the ugly side of lobbying is well known, the true intent behind lobbying needs to be better understood.

Entrepreneurs have a lot of control over their businesses. However, the external environment they operate in is not always under their influence. That does not mean that Entrepreneurs are helpless.

Entrepreneurs need to band together with their common interest groups, such as their industry or local community, to make their concerns and issues known to external decision-makers. Entrepreneurs can exercise their collective influence to make persuasive arguments for specific courses of action beneficial to their industry or local community.

Are you taking leadership roles in your industry or community organizations to influence or “lobby” for your common cause? If not, why don’t you?
