So You Think You Are An Entrepreneur?

As I sat at the restaurant the other day with some business associates a question was posed. Are you born an entrepreneur? My attempt here is to outline a few observations. First, something inside you begins to become restless, as though you have awakened a giant within you. It may start as a little stirring in your soul until one day you are ready to explode.

Many of us walk through life with dreams, goals and aspirations of success, either to work for ourselves, work from home, make money online or create a business from scratch and be involved with all aspects of this development. This voice or stirring to be great and do great things is either welcomed or has the door slammed. I have witnessed many who slam the door as opportunity for greatness is waiting to be welcomed. My take is we are all born with greatness and all born to be an entrepreneur. I believe God has instilled in us, the very being of creating and managing. Many of our fellow would be entrepreneurs are told they can't, they won't, why bother, who do you think you are, you don't deserve to have success and the list goes on.

Eventually they believe the voices of the others rather than the voice inside. Where do you find yourself today? Are you living the dream that you had just a few short years ago? Or have you found yourself slamming the door on the voice that is aching for greatness. An observation made is that it is never to late to be that entrepreneur you so desire. Until the next time.
