When people ask me how long have I been an entrepreneur, I tell them I have been an “entrepreneur” for the last 8 years. Notice I put quotation marks around entrepreneur. I will explain the reason for this later in the post.

I graduated from high school in 2007. I had been working at Wendy’s since 2005 and left there after I graduated to go work at UPS. UPS only lasted a couple of months. I just couldn’t see myself continuing down the path of being a highly praised but underpaid worker.

While at UPS I created my entertainment company. Man was that an eye-opening experience. The creation of this entertainment company was my main reason for leaving UPS. I was going to take the entertainment industry by storm. So I thought.

When I left UPS I needed another job asap. My plan was to go apply at Family Dollar. Instead my mom asked me to come work with her since she was opening a new office in downtown Atlanta.

So I was going into 2008 set and ready to make things happen, so I thought again. I had my new entertainment company and I was the “COO” of my mom’s tax business.

To cut a long story short, things started off “great” and ended terribly. My attempt at creating a studio for my entertainment company drained my pockets and my role as COO did not go as I envisioned.

The reason this occurred is because I didn’t truly understand entrepreneurship nor business ownership. Entrepreneurship is turning an idea into a product/service that has demand in the marketplace. Business ownership is taking that product/service, scaling it for growth and employing others to manage your business operations. Read More What 8 Years of “Entrepreneurship” Taught Me

Let’s face it, entrepreneurship can be a challenging/ daunting process of thoughts and actions. You have this grand vision in your mind of what you want to accomplish but you are not quite sure of how exactly you are supposed to bring every thing together. You read blogs, magazines and constantly seek the advice of others but it all only seems to distract your ability to think and do; rather than progressing forward. You inevitably block your ability to do by constantly trying to find out how you are supposed to be an entrepreneur, rather than just assuming risk by taking action as a real entrepreneur does.
