Entrepreneurship: What It Is And What It Is Not – Episode 1 – What It Is Really Like to Be an Entrepreneur – Part 1
In this episode, Clay Clark (business coach and former US Small Business Administration Entrepreneur of the Year) teaches a group of students what entrepreneurship is, and what entrepreneurship is not. If you are a business owner looking to build your business, then make sure that you tune into this episode. There are a lot of misconceptions about what an entrepreneur is and does on a daily basis. For some people, they believe that all entrepreneurs aren’t merely unemployed people that have not landed at their next job yet. What this means is that somebody had a half-baked idea to start a business, and then never followed through with it. While this may be true of some business owners and entrepreneurs, it is not true for all. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world have grown to achieve some of the highest levels of wealth in the world. This is not because they have inherited a large sum of money. He’s because that they have been driven by a vision that Is great for themselves and for their company. If you are wanting to grow a company, you must be driven by great ambition and have a definite chief aim. Napoleon Hill, one of the best-selling self-help authors, has a quote that identifies that without a definite chief aim, you will drift toward certain failure. This is usually important for entrepreneurs that are looking to motivate themselves on a daily basis. Motivating yourself is one of the hardest things that you will learn to do as an entrepreneur. In this episode, Clay breaks down the different definitions of what it means to be an entrepreneur, and the levels of risk that are associated with being a business owner. When you work for yourself, the buck stops at you. You are responsible for paying yourself, for firing yourself, for training yourself, and everything else.
