What Is An Entrepreneur?
While there are so many different ways people describe an entrepreneur, I’ve come up with my own definition of what an entrepreneur is. My definition as an entrepreneur is: Entrepreneurship involves an individual who takes massive action to make a change in the world.
Hundred years ago, what options did an entrepreneur have? If you didn’t have the skill to make something and didn’t have the capital to buy something, you were out of luck. Fast forward to today, and there are over 600 million entrepreneurs worldwide.
The options available to entrepreneurs today have exploded, thanks to technology.
Why do people become entrepreneurs?
People don’t want to work for a boss.
A recent survey showed that most people use this as their number one reason to become entrepreneurs.
They often feel restricted with the lack of freedom and just cannot work under someone else’s supervision. As a result, they become attracted to entrepreneurship where they can do things their own way and succeed on their own terms.
They want to work from anywhere with flexible hours.
Going to the same place every single day to work, makes people bored and miserable. Entrepreneurs want the freedom to work from anywhere in the world in their own flexible hours.
It also allows them to have more time with their young children and pick them up from school without feeling guilty about it.
They were fired or just can’t get a job
Getting fired or a lack of job qualifications can prevent people from getting a job. It is then through frustration or feeling defeated that they get into the entrepreneur’s lifestyle and create their own opportunities.
People who were laid off from work might start their own online store or a student studying marketing might start a side career in affiliate marketing.
Entrepreneurs are unstoppable
Since there’s no limit to what they can achieve, entrepreneurs walk to achieve higher levels of greatness. They find a workaround to any obstacle and constantly finding themselves growing and achieving more than they ever can imagine.
