The grand initiative I have recently thought of for Entrepreneurial Ambitions is The Entrepreneur Warehouse. The concept behind The Entrepreneur Warehouse is to create business ownership and job creation in disadvantaged communities. What are disadvantaged communities? These are communities which have negative reputations, have limited economic productivity and are usually ignored by those who don’t live within those neighborhoods. This ongoing limitation in productivity is a major problem in not only the disadvantaged community but also to those which surround it. How so? Because, as these communities suffer, the suffering spreads and frustration and anger are directed towards those who do not identify with the ongoing struggles.

Knowledge and education; are they not one in the same? Many will say yes; I on the other hand say no. Lets reference to dictionary.com in order to establish the definition of the two words. Education is defined as: the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgement, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life. Knowledge is defined as: acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation; general erudition: knowledge of many things. Just by reading over the two definitions it is clear that knowledge goes beyond education. This would then explain as to why so many educated people seem so unknowledgeable about the “real” world.

From the previous post, Can I Become an Entrepreneur, we came to the conclusion that entrepreneurship involves putting together various pieces in order to produce the predetermined vision. It is important to highlight the fact about putting various pieces together because many aspiring entrepreneurs believe you can produce a vision in its entirety immediately. This wild belief is what helps create the high rate of failure many entrepreneurs endure along their start-up journey. An important rule to follow for aspiring entrepreneurs is patience, without it you will have a hard time moving forward in a rational manner. Patience is vital in regards to your putting together of the pieces because it allows for you to strategically prioritize or better yet analyze what fits into your given puzzle. Understand that this is a very complex puzzle and every piece is not made to fit and sometimes the puzzle will not turn out how you once imagined so it is a continual work in progress that is never truly finished.
