If you asked some entrepreneurs today, they would readily tell you that they were born as an entrepreneur and not just made one.
The way of entrepreneurship can sometimes start at a very early age in life. Such characteristics are genetically inherent in the basic culture and foundation of an individual's personality.
Over the years, my own experiences as being independent and having my own small business endeavors have been always my passion and the key to my own personal success, fulfillment and happiness.
Have tried working full time and part time questioning if entrepreneurship is the real way to go for my life's purpose.
In spite the odds, trial and errors, with ot without mentors it always boils down to having that independence of working for myself and accomplishing ideals for the betterment of my family and community.
Recently, because of the challenging times in our economic crisis, people will say that having mutliple streams of income is perhaps the way to survive. However, we must always acknowledge what goes on in our personal lives, family, relationships and health.
Sometimes, having other challenges might not be as easy as some might think as the key is not to lost focus on your primary niche or business idea. It might not make sense right now but when you have studied it over and over through the years, we just have to stick to what we believe will work for us.
Money is a consequence need to stay in business but also does not drive the entrepreneur in achieving his or her dream alone. The problem with our society is that we use entrepreneurism to inform and educate so that it can help create jobs, booze the economy, give credibility to government and at the same time be a business money making venture in itself for us.
We need to realize that our goals will be really successful if there is a continuity in our efforts. We might be able to teach the best business classes, show entrepreneurs how to make creative plans but how many in the end do really make it and how many fail after all the time we have spent in helping educate emergeing entrepreneurs?
These days, it is such hard to find an entrepreneur that will be ready to lost everything he has in order for his business to succeeed. This spirit is the ultimate key to great leadership that we have to look for. This people go into their dream businesses to achieve greater things not just for them but also for the community and society.
The challenge is how do we really support such individuals? Perhaps, they might just need a certian ingredient, financial liquidity, support and reinforcements so they can really achieve their dreams.
Today's entrepreneurial environment has change. It is no longer about having a high credit rating, collateral or financial capabilities, it is more about perseverance, the dare to risk everything and focusing to succeed in their dream.
