How Improv Comedy Can Make You a Better Entrepreneur
How being funny on the fly can make your business stronger.
Would you call yourself funny? Even if your not, giving it a go could do wonders for your business.
Business and Improv Comedy Are A Lot More Similar Than You Think.
In a lot of ways, the comedy world and business world parallel each other. Both can be tricky to navigate and even if you have a clear idea of where you want things to land, getting there might have its share of twists and turns.
Failure Can Be Good
Many comedians have just as many stories about “bombing” on stage and getting no laughs as entrepreneurs do about failing at their first – or first few – business attempts. This can be good for a number of reasons.
- You learn from these experiences
- You allow these experiences to make you better
- You’ll learn how to quickly move on from these mistakes & start fresh with new “material”
So if you never have before, consider some improv comedy exercises to do with friends or flex your chops at a local club if you’re brave enough to try something new – another great trait to have as a leader and entrepreneur!
