Being an Entrepreneur Is Harder Than You May Think

See, this is precisely why I should not be left to my own devices. I overthink entirely too much. I enlist critical thinking in more areas than I probably should be allowed to. However, that is how I come up with some awesome ideas too! So it is a win-win situation.

Sitting here I am just thinking about the word entrepreneur. What is the life of an entrepreneur like? Is it all vacations and cruises to foreign destinations? I'm here to tell you, hell no it is not! Being an entrepreneur means that you are just a person like anyone else. However, you have learned how to organize the gears and movements of business while at the same time taking huge financial risks in order to make things happen. Chances are, you are not worried about making things happen for yourself either. It is the people that are working for you that you are concerned with.

Since I have a writing business that I solely operate online, am I considered a social entrepreneur? Is there even such a thing as a social entrepreneur? See that is what I should be looking up. Because if I have a fancy title like that I would have that engraved on my business cards stat! Just kidding, I just got business cards made and I think that they are pretty awesome.

If you consider yourself an entrepreneur; whether a social entrepreneur or not; I have just a few things for you to keep in mind when you are going through your day-to-day activities. These key points are not just for you though, they are for everyone. It is important to understand that when you are an entrepreneur it is crucial for you to share with your team. One thing you want is for your entire team to be on the same page, not in different chapters of entirely different books.

First and foremost, ignore the naysayers. Get in the habit of ignoring each and every single person who has anything negative to say about you or your company's growth. Even by allowing one grain of negative rice into your bag of positive rice, can cause an infection. If you have to go back and reread that sentence to fully understand it, please do so. I want you to understand and comprehend every single word in this blog.

Next, make sure you get out of your head and get into the gym. I'm not kidding here. Exercise is crucial for an entrepreneur to continue to have a singular daily habit besides working on their brain. When you walk into a gym your focal point should be exercise and nothing else. Wipe away the finances, the team, the workload, and anything else having to do with your business.

Lastly, and this is probably one of the most important things that should be a staple within the life of an entrepreneur; ask questions until they are all answered. This is critical to not only the improvement of yourself and your team but the improvement of your business and your goals. It is optimal to have a mentor that you are comfortable with. A mentor that you can go to with any question, big or small. And a mentor that will be honest with you whether it is good news or bad news.

I cannot guarantee you that your business is going to be successful and becoming an entrepreneur was the best thing for you to do. In all actuality, there is no one that can do that. Social entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. Hell, generalized entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. Regardless of the business that you have chosen to go into, there are going to be financial risks. You just have to ensure that you and your team are strong enough to handle them without buckling.

Until Next Time,
