Why You Need To Become An Entrepreneur

Apr 14, 2008
A lot of people will not tell you about their downfalls and the things they went through before they became successful. Most of the time you will only see the good and not the bad. But how can a person help someone if they do not share their struggles and what they have been through? I'm a firm believer in sharing stories with the world. This will not only help me to give back (in a sense), it will inspire someone else to keep trying and never give up. This is my saying; You never understand the sun until you've been through the rain. In other words, you never understand a person's situation until you go through it or something similar.

With all the things that I have been through over the years when I first started building my business, I will say that it has been a long time coming. What I mean by that is, I've always worked extremely hard trying to wait on that one special ship that would set sail and put me on a trail to success. Look at it this way; it's just like gambling. Everybody knows that the house has an advantage but that does not mean that you will lose every time. All it takes is one luck of the draw! Strategy and perseverance will see you through even the roughest winds and currents in terms of being an entrepreneur.

There are numerous of reasons why you need to become an entrepreneur but some of them should be obvious. Becoming an entrepreneur is not hard. The hardest thing about being a business owner is being a successful business owner. I truly feel in my heart that some people are born to be entrepreneurs. Take Michael Jackson for a second. He was never really taught to be a singer, he was born to be a singer. There's a difference. You have some people that simply have a natural born talent or gift to do something.

For example, back in my early days when I was just a newsier entrepreneur and started to build my company, I would work for someone else (a job) on the side to help supplement my income. Well, in doing this I kept on running into the same tedious situations. Mostly every job that I had worked, I kept on getting laid off. I guess a lot of it was that my work ethic/performance was never what they needed. But the point is, I was forced to start my own business. I was forced to make my own money. I was forced to get in the drivers seat and control my own destiny. I was forced to say to myself, enough is enough. There are two types of incomes that a person makes: dependent income or independent income. Dependent income is when your boss or your job controls your income. Independent income is when you control your income. Under the circumstances, I was forced to have independent income!

You need to become an entrepreneur because I don't care what company or boss you work for, your income from that job could be wiped out at any given moment. They can lay you off at the drop of a dime. Whether you work full time, part time, have been working for over 20-30 years, do not ever think for one second that any job is permanent. Did you know statistics show that over 94 percent of people over 65 are broke? Residual and passive income is the very best incomes anyone can make, hands down. There are thousands of money-making opportunities that we pass up everyday but I guess as they say, if you fish for a man, he will only eat for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, he can eat for a lifetime. Get my drift?
