For those who are fed up with the bureaucratic nature of the life of an employee I invite you to the life of entrepreneurship. The life of being your own boss and making your own decisions, not having to answer to anyone else and being fearful of job security. Working by your own rules and dictating your own work schedule. Sounds great right? Think again.
Entrepreneurship is just as difficult as it is rewarding, if not more. People mistakenly associate freedom and being your own boss with easy work and instant success. This assumption is what sets people up for failure from the beginning. As an entrepreneur you are your business which means you get out of it what you put into it. I constantly preach this but I want to make it clear: HARD WORK, DEDICATION and AMBITION have to be your driving factors in securing entrepreneurial success. With so many advances and changes being produced within the marketplace there is absolutely no room to be lackadaisical. As our world continues to shift in terms of connectivity, thought processes and economic development; opportunities to create will both increase and become more complexing. Being an entrepreneur in today’s world will require not only hard work but also a constant consumption of education about how the world operates. Why the world? Because we now operate within a global economy that reacts to the actions of multiple countries economic performances. This means you have to look beyond working in a local mindset and think how you can provide a global business. Competition is increasing rapidly and now mandates that today’s entrepreneur is able to think beyond the present day issues. This never-ending process of staying ahead rather than staying in pace requires someone who is motivated to be a game changer rather than a supporting cast member. Are you up for the challenge?
Now take a look at yourself and really analyze your capability of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Trust me it is a demanding, non-stop life choice to make. You are constantly trying to improve your skills, prove your worth to others and stay educated about the latest developments and happenings. It is a lot to process and digest while actively working in and working on your business. I find that it is important to possess the two P’s in your entrepreneurial pursuits: Patience and Perseverance. Time consuming hard work met with the initial resistance to your business will be difficult to accept but will ultimately help you value your eventual success upon its arrival. So if you are ready to work hard to become successful I welcome you to entrepreneurship but if you expect mediocrity to get you ahead please stick to the 9-5 schedule and do not waste your time.
