I know this guy, He used to drive lorries and then decided to start his own business. He used to come to me for advice with his business, but then he outgrew me and turned into a proper entrepreneur.
So, you say, what is a proper entrepreneur?
There are as many different definitions of what an entrepreneur is as there are letters in the word “entrepreneur”, but i prefer to answer the question by saying..
“An entrepreneur is someone who invests their own money, resources and effort in their own passion/idea/product” etc
If you are someone who skims off of other people, then you are not an entrepreneur.
You are a scammer.
I’ve met so many people who called themselves entrepreneurs, but I’ve only met a few who were “Proper Entrepreneurs”.
So, if you have the confidence to put your money where your mouth is, then you can definately classify yourself as a “proper entrepreneur”.
I’d forget about watching the BBC Apprentice and start thinking about putting some muscle behind the hussle.
As Tony Montana on Scarface once said “The only thing in this world that gives orders… is balls”.
You won’t get balls working for someone else!
Grow up, or get a job!
