There is something wrong with entrepreneur’s minds
I will start from the basic assumption that entrepreneurs start a business from one of these reasons:
- bigger income,
- more free time,
- being your own boss.
Ok, nothing wrong so far. Just that in order to obtain these 3 things as an entrepreneur, first you have to go in the opposite direction: smaller income, less free time, and more than one boss (as every customer is your boss). So there must be something wrong with the entrepreneurs mind! In the pursue of their dreams, the start by doing exactly the opposite and just hope they will make an 180 grades shift later!
First, at least in the first year, chances are that you will have less money than at your current job. Chances are that you are even going to invest your savings into it. And there is no telling if you are ever going to be able to make the U-turn!
Having more free time is an absolute non-sense, at least in the beginning. If you start small and probably without any significant outside investment, then, here we go, you will have long working hours, working weekends, and no holidays! Because entrepreneurs have more tasks and duties than any other employee! And even if you get to hire, then you will have sleepless night because you will have to provide the necessary income to be able to pay the employees! And there is no telling if you are ever going to be able to make the U-turn!
Being your own boss. Sure, you always get this one. You will be your own boss from day one, if… you make enough money to pay the bills, grow the business, tackle legal stuff, find customer, deliver products or services, have quality, make profit, hire the right person, invest wisely, cash in money, repay the loans, have an office, buy supplies, deal with upset customers, deal with leaving customers, deal with unfaithful suppliers and …. And still, even if you get to do all this, every customer will still be your boss. Till the day you are out! And there is no telling if you are ever going to be able to make the U-turn!
Now tell me. What would you call people that in order to follow their dreams are able to ignore the exact same dreams that pushed them going? They are entrepreneurs!
