Wanna Start Something?
You’ve had it up to your eyeballs with the conventional. Dread the prospect of slipping into a run-of-the-mill position at a run-of-the-mill company. Shiver at the thought of channeling your energies into routine tasks designed to make the powers-that-be fatter in the wealth department — while you struggle to cover basic living expenses.
This could mean one of two things. Either you’re imbued with the entrepreneurial spirit. Or you’re just plain lazy. If it’s the former, you won’t rest until you strike out on your own and create a startup enterprise that satisfies on every possible personal level. You should feel good about this! Thousands of independent thinkers discover ultimate fulfillment by launching their own company or service. With hard work and luck, many even take their personal enterprise to places undreamed of. Case in point: Bill Gates. Yes, as mind-bogglingly hard as it is to believe, Microsoft once was a little startup humming along inconspicuously in Redmond, Washington.
But before you leap headlong into your startup adventure, it’s a good idea to make certain your personal qualities align with those deemed necessary for entrepreneurial success. And just what are those all-important indicators? This Forbes article lays them out nicely. Not surprisingly, first on the list is ‘dissatisfaction with the present’. See? All your grumbling and bellyaching can be the start of something really big. So don’t waste another precious moment. Check out this marvelously insightful article and let me know what you think.
