Entrepreneurship may be what you want instead of a career . Or maybe starting your own business is what you want to began as soon as possible, even as you start your new career. Many people have what it takes to become a business owner but they just never entertain the thought to go that route. Other people simply dismiss the thought assuming that they don’t have what it takes to become a business owner. After all entrepreneurship is for people willing to take huge risk. You must have thick skin, good work ethic and discipline to be an entrepreneur.
Most of all you should love people and love to deal with people. Despite what many think, being self employed is actually harder work than working a traditional 9 to 5, in most cases especially in the first few years. Does this sound like you? Is this the journey your ready to embark upon? If you find yourself full of ideas, solutions to problems, and seeing alternate ways of how things can be done, you probably have the creativity and vision useful for making a current business more successful or for developing a business of your own addressing the needs of other businesses or people.
You need is the right attitude which is centered around wanting to help or serve others. If your are one of these, me me me, I I I, self entitled feeling, somebody give me, attitude people, you can go ahead and skip this page. Sorry. These are the businesses that you see tunnel vision focused on profit at all cost. Nickel and diming their customers and employers who struggle to exist and pay dearly with having to advertise for customers and employers because their reputation and quality is strong enough for word of mouth to do the work. You need the right mindset but you also need the right knowledge to handle the business. You could be smart enough to realize that you need to involve others who do have knowledge where yours fall short to handle the business aspect of things. Business skills of course can be acquired thought research and/or training but if you simply despise handling business again, it’s possible to bring aboard someone who compliments you.
Maybe you just want to exercise your creativity and passion and willing to share the profit. Just be very careful about partnerships. They are prone to drama. Get all agreements in writing from how tasks and responsibility will divided and how compensation will be handle to what happens in the event that the business dissolves. Anyway, if all of this sounds like an adventure to you, you definitely have the to look into becoming an entrepreneur because despite all the hesitation and debate you hear from others about is now the right time. If are a person who is ready, you realize that now is a perfect time. All you need to do is identify your passions and purpose and see how you can use it to address the needs of others.
Since we are where we are with a poor economy still and many people and businesses still need various types of help in varies ways, there will never be a better time than now to be creative and figure out how you can make life better and get compensated for doing so. They people who can’t figure that out mostly have that I, me attitude, are pessimistic, or have very little creativity. But what that means it more opportunity for you. Don’t dismiss this possibility for your future. Explore it, keep an open mind. Need an idea? Start an online business.
