Is it a Passion or Desire
Each and everyday day I get my friends requesting advice and guidance on how they can start Businesses. Going by the current state of the economy, everyone wants to enjoy the financial freedom that associated with being your boss.
Masses of person’s desire to start a business. Nevertheless, not every person has what it takes. The percentage of persons who only wish to be businesspersons has continuously been higher compared to those who implement the act and start a business the reason is that not everybody is blue-penciled ready for the inflexibility of entrepreneurship. Before running into entrepreneurship and may be letting go of what you can do best, be sure business is what you can do best. Are you a devotee or a ground-breaker? In life, we have people who feel they got a thing in making decisions as well as giving some orders. On the contrary, we have those who find comfort in just order taking and can never figure out anything on their own. I tend to think entrepreneurship is not for you at all.
Business skills to Entrepreneurship
Not forgetting due to the current matters affecting the world there has been a culture that has pissed me off. That habit where entrepreneurs day by day are praised and while the employed, educated elites being looked down upon. More often than ever I come across severally posts e.g. You will never be that billionaire if you work for someone etc. Due to this people, there are those that all they can do best is work for others so let them be. Again, the fascinating stories of Zero to Hero, Roughs to dollars and we forget that not all are blessed on this path. Well let’s know that those who made it are credited to provide jobs to others.
In other cases, having a degree or Masters in business Administration or management is not guarantee that you qualify to be an entrepreneur.Back to my campus days I know people who would be having so much pocket money equivalent to entry-level job salary. The surprising thing they were complaining about being broke. This means that if you cannot manage the little amount of cash that you got, it will require maximum discipline and practice to make an entrepreneur. The seal and the willingness to be that boss will make you one.
The social media is full of individuals desiring to start a business and asking for business ideas. The question is: IS IT IN YOU? Do you have the WILLINGNESS to do it? Do not invest your money in an area just because your friend made it there. Self-search, discovery and evaluation will help you know if you can be one.
All in all, we have few entrepreneurs who have been trained and have become great entrepreneurs. There are aspects which can be inborn while others you learn while growing. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals is also a key to making it in business.
I am an entrepreneur, it is my passion and drive, and I would advise anyone passionate and patience enough to watch it grow to go for it anytime. All in all, you need to know if it is what you want. If employment is what you can do best go for it. Risk oriented individual can be a great entrepreneur as business is all about risk.
“You can’t outwit fate by standing on the sidelines placing little sidebets about the outcome of life. either you wade in and risk everything you have to play the game or you don’t play at all. and if u don’t play u can’t win.”
