The word entrepreneur is an intimidating word. It is scary to think of doing your own thing and blazing trails in the wilderness. So How to become an entrepreneur is a question many ask?
Let’s start with what is an Entrepreneur? It is someone who wants to live their life on their terms to create their dreams. They want to run a business with new innovative ideas and lead the world into change. Or they have developed a product, a new invention and want to market it to the world. Or a person who has new ideas to implement and restructure the world.
In this article, I will break down this big word to help you feel confident and secure that you have what it takes to change the world because you are an entrepreneur.
It has always amazed me how people talk about being an entrepreneur like it is a natural everyday occurrence. Talk and words that elude to entrepreneurship as an easy undertaking made me shy away from becoming an entrepreneur.
For many years I always thought that Iconic, famous people are entrepreneurs, not people like me. WRONG!!!
A Better Understanding Of An Entrepreneur
You and I can accomplish anything we want when we apply ourselves. So, let me give you some quotes as we go along to help bring home a better definition of the daunting word entrepreneur.
“All our dreams can come true if we dare to pursue them.”Walt Disney
To Walt, an entrepreneur was a person who has a dream and keeps going no matter what tries to get in his way. Do you know that Walt Disney failed and filed bankruptcy in 1920 and came close to bankruptcy again in 1937 before he became successful? Also, he was rejected 302 times for financing to make his dream a reality. He had the courage and stood against all the odds to make his dream come true.
“Don’t worry about being successful but work toward being significant, and the success will naturally follow.”Oprah Winfrey
Oprah’s definition of an entrepreneur is a person who wants to make a difference. Not someone whose sole purpose is to be successful. Oprah had a difficult childhood with abuse and periods without supervision. But she had the determination to change the world, and she has made a more than significant impact.
“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.”Mandy Hale
Mandy believes that an entrepreneur is to help others. It isn’t about her but about her readers and who she can help. She wants to make her followers stronger to face the world.
Mandy is the voice that empowers single women through her books, social media platform, and blogs.
With these three quotes, you can easily see that an entrepreneur is not a person who wants to become famous or successful. It is a person who wants to help the world and make positive changes to impact the way people live. Each one of these incredible people has the heart to help guide others to a better life.
How To Become An Entrepreneur
You have a clear understanding of what an entrepreneur is, so let’s talk about why we are here, how to become an entrepreneur. Where do you start?
First, is your heart and soul pumped with an innovative idea that you have to share with the world?
In the world of affiliate marketing, these ideas are called a niche.
One of my niches is to write inspiration through poetry. I have a desire and am pursuing my passion through writing to help others overcome abuse and grow through personal development.
Maybe your niche is global warming or a better life for animals (dogs) or parenting or clothing style, or helping to make the world more comfortable on vacations. See, a niche can be anything at all that you love.
Walt Disney had a passion for showing children wholesome movies. Oprah wanted to inform the public and get more people to read. Mandy wants to empower single women to make their presence in this world. But they all did this because of one passion they wanted. That passion was to change how people see themselves and the world around them.
All three of these entrepreneurs started at the bottom and moved up the ladder. As they grew, their passion became so loud that they couldn’t stop the forward motion.
You Are An Entrepreneur
You are any one of these three people. How do you become an entrepreneur? You don’t become an entrepreneur. You already are one, but you have to tap into yourself and find a solution to the problem others may have. When Walt and Oprah started making their mark to change this world, they didn’t have the internet to reach the world. But Mandy is a different story. She touches the world with her blog, social media platforms, and books.
Where Do You Start?
You are an entrepreneur if you have a passion and a desire to help others and change the world. If you don’t know where to start, you can do as I did and begin with affiliate marketing. You can do as Mandy did and reach those who have a problem that you can solve.
You may be thinking I don’t know anything about blogging or affiliate marketing. Well, I didn’t either, but I searched and researched until I found a platform that taught me everything I need to know.
What About You?
Enough about me. What about you? After reading this article, do you see that you are an entrepreneur if you have a passion and want to change the world?
Do you know that it takes a heart and a desire to help others and the courage to continue on no matter what adversity you encounter?
Don’t give up, and you are on your way.
How Do You Begin?
But remember, you are an entrepreneur, and you have what it takes to change the world and make a positive impact on improving lives. It is ingrained in you, and no one can take it away from you.
Do you believe in your mind that you too are an entrepreneur?
