Becoming an Entrepreneur
Here’s a glimpse into the mindset of an entrepreneur, and the first actions you would need to take to become one. It’s a rewarding ride. Don’t follow the herd. Don’t reach the later years in your life full of regret. It’s the most common regret I have heard. The regret of not acting, not having at least tried.
To do a startup, you need to think in very simple terms. Many a startup founder is often that person that keeps “hungry and foolish,” as Steve Jobs once said. If you are able to find a solution to a problem people have, it’s the precursor to building a business out of it. To see something that others don’t see is just the start. Foolish thinking can be the most simplistic and focused of all. The more complicated a problem becomes, the more unsolvable it gets. However “too simple” this idea is, one life lesson always holds true, you get what you put in.
Entrepreneurship is the decision to act as well as the actions you taken. It’s not the person you are. You are not only your job. Taking action puts you ahead of the vast majority of people who talk about having a small business, but never build anything. How many times have you heard someone say, “I have always had that idea. ‘They’ copied it from me…?”
I hope this inspires people to just do. Build. It doesn’t matter if you are an engineer, housewife or a creative. Making sense of WordPress is not that difficult. It will put your idea into the Internet. That can be your prototype or sample. Entrepreneurs manage to find funding even when they speak poor English, have no degree, and no money for a business suit.
I hope you become less scared and self-doubting, and do a startup. Nobody can really stop you but yourself.
