Do You Have The Entrepreneur Mindset?
March 4, 2013

It takes a unique person to have the correct mindset to be a true entrepreneur. There is a big difference between being an entrepreneur and being self employed. Over 70% of small business owners today are nothing more then self employed meaning they work for themselves but could not step away from their business and have it continue to run efficiently and effectively. A true entrepreneur mindset is letting go of your created business and putting it in others capable hands allow you to step away from your company and still have it run as if you where there every day.

Now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with people that completely run their own business and go there every single day to help run the company. In fact it’s people like that that create small businesses that fuel America and help build it better and stronger every day.

The question here is are you looking to be self employed? or are you ready to take the next step and be a true entrepreneur?

These next few question will help build a complete new mindset you need to take that plunge and get you ready to become an entrepreneur.

  •  Are you a self promoter?
  • Do you plan and create goals for yours (the big picture, then small goals leading up to that big picture) ?
  • Are you good under pressure?
  • Are you comfortable with risk?
  • Are you self motivated?
  • Are you competitive?
  • Are you optimistic?
  • Are you patient?
All of the questions above are musts and are all about you as a person.

    Hi Sean,

    You make a very interesting distinction which, I must admit, I hadn’t really thought of.

    It’s true that some people swap a full-time job working for someone else for a full-time job working for themselves.

    I suppose that the difference is that people who work for themselves don’t mind the hours quite so much because they know that everything they do is for their business; not someone else’s.

    Quite often, however, would-be entrepreneurs resist the idea of starting their own businesses because they mistakenly believe that the risks outweigh the benefits.

    I’ve written an article that I think will allay those fears.

    Cheers, Bruce
