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 can you become an entrepreneur and bypass the fear straight to success?
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.
It could also be that person who has 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.
Let’s look at 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 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, with this in mind, I will 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 others rejected his business ideas 302 times. All he wanted was the financing to change the world but that didn’t stop him because he continued to show courage and stand 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, instead of 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, on the contrary it’s not about, rather it’s about her readers and how she can help them. In other words, 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, it is easy to 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, then again so do you.
How To Become An Entrepreneur
Now we have a better understanding of what a real entrepreneur is, so let’s talk about why we are here and that is to become an entrepreneur. Where should we start?
First, if someone has a burning desire and their heart and soul are pumped with an innovative idea they are already an entrepreneur at heart? But is that enough? Probably not, an idea needs an avenue to flow through. I used affiliate marketing as my avenue.
A few years back I had a desire to reach the world with my poetry and inspirational writing. But I had to figure out how to accomplish my dream. So I built a niche website.
Maybe you have a desire to improve global warming or provide better life for animals (dogs) or parenting or clothing style, or helping to make the world more comfortable on vacations. All of these desires to help can become a niche website and as a result you make a difference.
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 they couldn’t stop the noise in their heads.
You Are An Entrepreneur
How do you become an entrepreneur? You don’t become an entrepreneur because your desire and drive make you one but you have to tap into yourself. You have to find a solution to a 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 masses. But Mandy is a different story. She touches the world with her blog, social media platforms, and books, with this in mind we can follow Mandy’s example.
Where Do You Start So You Can Become An Entrepreneur
As I keep saying, you are an entrepreneur, all things considered the passion resides within you. Now, where do your start? 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 and you can help them solve it.
You may be thinking I don’t know anything about blogging or affiliate marketing. Well, I didn’t either, but I learned and taught myself all I know today. I wanted to change the world one word at a time and help others so I set out to do just that.
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 because it is within you?
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, because you are on your way.
Summary On How To Become An Entrepreneur
You are an entrepreneur, and you have what it takes to change the world and make a positive impact. It is ingrained in you, and no one can take it away from you. With this in mind, find a way to make a change in the world around us. I used affiliate marketing and a niche website.
Believe in your mind that you too are an entrepreneur and never give up or quit. After all where would the world be today if Walt, Oprah and Mandy didn’t pursue their dream?
