Barabara Corcoran on the Traits of an Entrepreneur


This is a short and to-the-point video with a great message and I could not agree more. to be an entrepreneur, you need to be able to "take a hit and keep getting up," be great with people and be a natural salesman. Without those traits, you probably need to think of another career.

Ty Rhame - Tyson Rhame Bio

Tyson Allen Rhame, or “Ty Rhame” always had an interest in aviation. His passion for leadership paired with his fondness for aviation led him to graduate from the US Air Force Academy in 1988 and then pursue a career in the United States Air Force Reserves. Ty Rhame has since become a highly decorated Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force. In addition to his military service, Ty Rhame has served as a commercial pilot for a major United States airline for over 15 years, and enjoys aerobatic aviation in his free time.



 Education has always been a priority to Ty Rhame, having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. Ty Rhame’s air force experience paired with his business savvy and drive has fueled his business portfolio and philanthropy. Tyson Rhame has been the voice of strategic advice behind SterlingFunder.com, an online instrument used to connect entrepreneurs who need capital with investors, and the Recleim Group, an appliance de-manufacturing company.



Ty Rhame has also realized success from his real estate investment company, Trinvest, LLC. Tyson Rhame has offered his business expertise in the area of strategic planning as well as financially invested in several companies’ success. For example, the unique and practical hat company JBREM that manufactures hats that cater to consumers such as truck drivers and athletes who wear baseball caps and sunglasses and often place their sunglasses on their head when not in use. The JBREM hats have pockets built in the sides to place the arms of sunglasses in to prevent them from falling off the head. Ty Rhame also has investments in the crowd funding industry, the automotive industry, the personal security industry, and the aviation industry among others. With all of these endeavors in his portfolio, Tyson Rhame is still open to new investment opportunities. Tyson Rhame uses every tool given to him in order to share his entrepreneurial expertise with others. One of the resources that Ty Rhame uses to educate others in entrepreneurship are his various writing series’ on his blog (www.tyrhame.com).


Tyson Rhame makes an easy to understand correlation to business and his military experience in order to illustrate his drive to succeed in both areas, but more importantly to inspire others by his own personal journey. Ty Rhame states on his blog,
“Being successful at anything is rarely easy in any competitive environment. A good work ethic is one quality that is missing in many people because they have never truly had to work hard. Believe me when I say that the military taught me what hard work is. I’m not just talking about the physical part of it, I’m also talking about the mental fortitude it takes to persevere when everything seems to be going wrong, nothing is working, you are mentally and emotionally exhausted, and the work seems never ending.”
Ty Rhame stresses the fact that, whether it is related to military battle or training for a job or business, continuously working hard is required in order to be consistently successful.


Tyson Rhame has so much to offer with his business background, entrepreneurship, and strategic planning advice. However, Ty Rhame’s philanthropy is the most valued by the Atlanta community. The Rhame Family Foundation is a charity with a focus on education. The Rhame Family Foundation has made several much needed donations, such as computers and sports equipment like wrestling mats and tennis racquets to K-12 schools in Atlanta in an attempt to enhance the overall learning experience and aid in the reward of extracurricular activities to students. In addition to this, Tyson Rhame is extremely passionate about environmental issues, as well as land preservation and uses this passion to invest in projects that will make a difference by making conscious plans to maintain land.


Ty Rhame has donated over 1,000 acres of land totaling over $20 million dollars to the state of Georgia, and also South Carolina and Tennessee for conservation purposes. The majority of the donations made by Ty Rhame were directed to areas like Union City, GA and Graniteville, SC. The plan of the conservation project was to voluntarily restrict landowner’s rights to build, mine, or remove trees in the areas mentioned. Tyson Rhame also has a passion for health issues and has donated over $40,000 to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in order to assist with research studies and various other needs. Ty Rhame has also made substantial contributions to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and Save the Children. Ty Rhame is involved in community resources as well, such as Meals on Wheels, and numerous military affiliated projects such as Hire Heroes, the Wounded Warriors Project, all of which cater to our recently discharged servicemen and women who need assistance once they have left the military.

Expect respect


Keep in mind that even if you were once the employee, now you are the boss and as such you should expect respect from your own employees. If you do not have the respect of your employees, you can hardly expect to build a successful business.

    From Henry to Rhame Family Foundation


    I love seeing what teachers are using the grant money for. In this case, the money was used to provide music education opportunities at GLOBE Academy. The grant money enabled the music teacher to get the school's two pianos tuned and to purchase new barred instruments like the ones in Henry's drawing.


    One step


    One of my favorites – the first step is the hardest one, but there is no reward without it.

    The Entrepreneurial Spirit and Success by Tyson Rhame

    Before becoming a successful entrepreneur, there are many things you need to learn along the way. You will face a lot of adversity - will you give up? That’s a part of any businesses, especially a startup, which faces many challenges. This is what differentiates the successful entrepreneurs who are able to make their businesses profitable.

    There is an entrepreneurial spirit that inspires a person to become the best he or she can be. This includes passion, great leadership, positive thinking, adaptability and ambition. Here are some of the traits of entrepreneurs who have this spirit.

    Passion

    This is the number one reason why many successful business owners are able to reach their goals: strong passion for what they are doing. This is a critical trait needed by anyone trying to make their dreams come true as a business owner. Passion is also the reason why entrepreneurs achieve their best and continue to strive for more and better outcomes. 

    Positive Thinking

    One of the keys to becoming a successful entrepreneur in your chosen market is having a positive attitude. Keep focused on how you will benefit from your business and not on the difficulties you will face. Basically, you need to look at the brighter side to prevent yourself from losing hope when things get tough. 

    Ability to Adapt

    Another great strength that an entrepreneur should have is the ability to adapt to different situations. Every entrepreneur needs to have a willingness to improve, refine and customize their products or services. This way, you as the business owner can provide your customers with the satisfaction they want. Bear in mind that you must not only react to the changes, but also be willing to lead the way. This way, you will have a better spot in your chosen market since people will be drawn to your innovative ideas that other business owners are not providing.

    Great Leadership

    A good leader must possess certain things in order to build success within an organization. A deep sense of integrity and the power to persuade others. Enthusiasm.  Team-oriented and a good teacher. You as the business owner will always be the leader of your company and it’s up to you to set the tone and goals of your company.

    Ambition

    It is important for any entrepreneur to have ambition before creating up a new business. There are many large companies today that started small but had big ambitions that took them to their current position.

    You need to be ambitious and have a plan to achieve your goals even if they aren’t profitable right away. Think big and keep your dreams in mind as you progress. This is when hard work pays off. Keep your mind focused on your goal.

    If you possess these traits, you will be on your way to becoming a successful business owner. We all know that running a business is not that easy, but with determination and the spirit to create a positive outcome success is within your grasp.


    Do you agree? What traits do you think a successful entrepreneur needs to have?
