How Not to Become an Entrepreneur

How-not-to-become-an-entreprenurWorking from home sounds like an ideal solution for most of us. I am loving it, how about you?

There are millions of people who know somebody who has quit the ‘get-up-and-go-to-work’ grind and is making a very good living working on their personal computers from the comfort of their own homes.

Becoming an entrepreneur is not just starting a business….

Becoming a business person working from home, doesn’t mean you can simply work when you feel like it and still make a good living. Your business will not run by itself without your constant supervision and hand holding,

  • You do not become an entrepreneur by reading a book.
  • Entrepreneurship isn’t learned in school.

You are already an entrepreneur. And, you are becoming an entrepreneur.

==> All you need to do is perceive the world as a series of opportunities while you select and pursue the ones best for you. Sounds easy, right? 🙂 It can be fun, and more easy with a guide, to be sure.

It’s all about perspective….

The process of becoming an entrepreneur has a lot to do with your internal control. And, I‘ve noticed in myself it causes an examination of ideals, values, practices, and learning more about relationship building .

For people with a growth mindset it’s not about immediate perfection. 

It’s about learning something new, confronting a challenge and moving towards their goal.

–          Are you someone who thrives when you’re stretching yourself?

Entrepreneurs have that growth mindset.

  • Becoming an entrepreneur doesn’t happen because you want security.

A strong desire for greater control over your life, career, and destiny is a driving force.

“Vision without execution is hallucination.” ― Thomas A. Edison

Being a business person who wants to go it alone makes it more difficult to have the hoped for implementation and results. And, only cuts off valuable guidance, feedback, and experience that others could offer in the form of assistance.

Being in business for yourself means that you may need to strike out in a different direction and into unfamiliar territory, putting you into a position of learning, being open-minded, and relying upon others for help. The combination of these ingredients contribute to your own recipe for becoming entrepreneurial.

So how about you? Are you an entrepreneur that is also becoming entrepreneurial?

    When I started my Divorce guidance biz and website two years ago, I had no idea what I was in for!
    I have never worked so hard in all my life to get to where I want to be but slowly it’s been coming together.
    I have learned and benefited so much from joining both online and off-line women entrepreneur groups.
    After my divorce was final in 2008 right before the job market crashed, I spent the next 3 yrs constantly job hunting for a legal job in a totally over-saturated job market.
    I now have found more strength in taking the initiative to start my own biz and take control of my life.

      Thank you Nancy for your comment. And, I can identify with why you started your own business – I had worked pretty much for myself for the 20 plus years before starting my own biz – so went I sent out to look for jobs – I decided I couldn’t work for someone else! 🙂
