Is it the fame? The fortune? The sense of accomplishment? Possibly…
But most likely, entrepreneurs would answer, “The Idea.”
What’s the worst part of a new business? Slogging through all of the stuff to make that idea happen.
The “stuff” frequently isn’t fun and unlike the idea, it brings little glory. But it’s the “stuff” that ultimately turns an idea into a reality.
So if you don’t like:
- Market Research
- Financial Forecasting
- Asking for Money
- Working long hours
- Living on a shoestring
- Maxing out your credit cards
- Asking for favors
- Lack of Sleep
and of course, there’s probably some stress in the mix…
…then you might not be cut out to be an entrepreneur. On the other hand, if you relish a challenge (or hundreds of them), entrepreneurship could be perfect for you.
If you like the thrill of victory and look at defeat as a learning opportunity, you should start your own business, build your own product, turn your idea into reality.
Start it, work it, own it.
It’s the only way you’ll see your IDEA become your BUSINESS.
