What made you want to become an Entrepreneur?
Post by Jean-Pierre Ras
Hi, I’d like to start by asking a very important question, one that every entrepreneur should ask themselves, before starting any business.
That question is, WHY?
Why are you doing this, why have you decided to take on this tough business journey. Even when you know, 95% of people would have taken the easier road to a normal, 9 to 5 job?
Whether you are new to this journey or familiar with it, this will always be the road less travelled.
Welcome to the grind, where you turn your back on what’s comfortable, safe, and away from what some people would call “common sense”. This road is the difference between making your dreams a reality or not. Each day is a series of conflicts between the right way and the easy way.
On this road, you’re headed up stream, against everything that is normal.
I would like to tell you about my experience on this road…
My journey on this road, started at a very young age, when I decided to turn a hobby into a business. Little did I know about the painfully dark and lonely road which lay ahead. It’s funny how people don’t tell you these things until you’re six-foot-deep into the ground, trying to dig yourself out of your own grave.
I am going to try something here, and ask you to give me a short write up below, in the comment section, about your journey, the things you’re battling with. I’d also like to know what made you choose this entrepreneurial lifestyle? I know a lot of people who got thrown into the deep end, forced to take on the entrepreneurial road due to different setbacks, such as being retrenched or going on pension, needing more money just to purely survive.
I’d like to hear more about your journey… share it with me in a comment if you wish.
I will then comment below your comment, with some advice on how I might have had the same challenges, and how I found ways to overcome them.
I look forward to your comment.
