When does it make sense?
Two important values that highly driven people commonly share are freedom and autonomy. It’s not surprising given the fact high achievers tend to be self-starters, ambitious and visionary. This is why so many high achievers are entrepreneurs.
TriplePNation, we often refer to the entrepreneurs among us by discussing such topics as the common challenges entrepreneurs face when starting, building and scaling their business. We also speak about the many benefits being an entrepreneur has, such as more freedom of time, the autonomy of following your own path and deciding what the best direction is for your business. Plus don’t forget the financial rewards that come from seeing your dream come to life while creating great value for your customers.
What If You’re Not?
What if you’re not an entrepreneur? What if owning your own business has never entered into your realm of possibility? or perhaps you have considered becoming your own boss but lack the know how therefore causing mental paralysis?
Here are a few interesting facts. By 2022, just two short years away 42% of the workforce will be self-employed. More people are leaving the safety of the corporate umbrella and the golden hand cuffs to become their own boss. A recent trend has shown more woman 58% to men, 42% are starting businesses.
So what gives?
It really is simple, after the great economic crash of 2009 where the unemployment rate went from sub 4% to almost 10% nationally, people realized if the corporate world no longer offered the safety enjoyed by past work generations, they might as well bank on themselves where at least you have control of your future income and success. The next and perhaps most important reason is the ease in which it is to start a business nowadays. If you have a smart phone, and who doesn’t, you’re literally 10 minutes away from starting an online business. I didn’t say it is easy but there has never been more opportunities then now.
Do I Have What It Takes?
Perhaps now you’re asking yourself, “do I have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? My response to you is YES! I believe almost anyone can be an entrepreneur. Why not invest in yourself, your dreams and throw caution to the wind? Maybe it is a side hustle you want to create that affords you the opportunity to create an additional $3-5 thousand dollars per month of income. What would that do for your quality of life? I see stay at home Mom’s and Dad’s making $10k/month and more with only a computer and cell phone. It can be done, in fact millions are doing it everyday.
Do I have your entrepreneurial juices flowing? Here’s some important things to know. I would never suggest leaving your current job until your new business can replace your other income. This might take longer in time but it does help minimize the stress. To be an effective entrepreneur there are some qualities you should possess. You need to be a dreamer, passionate, willing to hustle your butt off and surround yourself with people who are smarter then you who will help guide and support you. You also need to be a bit of a risk taker and perhaps most of all, is to believe with all your heart and mind in your product and service.
So, what business should you consider, well I can’t tell you specifically but I can say, find a business that will excite you each day you get out of bed. A business that you’re so passionate about that no matter how many hours you work a day, it never seems like work at all because you love what you are doing. I will tell you that an internet business affords you the opportunity to take your business to market fast and grow your business even faster by reaching a high volume of potential customers for the least amount of investment.
The next question I’m usually asked is, when does it make sense for me to start? The simple but important response is when you decide. Nothing happens until you make a commitment to get started. Please understand there is never a perfect time…EVER! Believe me, as someone who has been involved in starting more then 8 companies. We can always find a reason not to start, an entrepreneur looks at why the time IS right to start.
As we are rapidly approaching the end of the year, why not consider becoming an entrepreneur as your one big goal in 2020. As I mentioned above, what sets successful entrepreneurs apart from the ones who struggle and eventually fail, is their willingness to seek help and counsel. Don’t reinvent the wheel. There are solutions to every problem. Don’t wait until you are in the struggle, like most unsuccessful entrepreneurs do. Reach out as you are beginning your entrepreneurial journey so you can 10x your results.
