DSM Digital School of Marketing - entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs are a very particular breed of person. This is because they think in a very special way. You’ll likely know when you’re near to one. Their words will give you clues as to how they think. It can be fascinating.

Entrepreneurial life is definitely really exciting however with ditching your boss your 9-5 will almost immediately turn to 24/7. Your customers become your new bosses and the size of your paycheck will be different from month to month. If you carry on with it, work hard enough and innovate, you can join the “club” of successful entrepreneurs.

What Makes A Person An Entrepreneur?

We used to think that individuals became entrepreneurs because of something that they did. Most often, we’d identify entrepreneurs as those individuals who began companies. And while that’s still true, the notion of ‘being an entrepreneur’ has definitely changed.

Now, we tend to see entrepreneurs as individuals who think in a pretty specific way. If there was an entrepreneurial club today, you would more probably get your membership card based on how you think about things as opposed than what you do for a living.

Always Be Solving Problems

Entrepreneurs are always solving problems. Small ones (like where to store something or how to fix something) as well las huge ones such as how to orbit the earth, cure disease or make people truly happy.

Entrepreneurs’ constant curiosity and desire to improve applies to everything that they put their mind to.

Think like an entrepreneur by constantly looking for a better way to do things. An improved way to structure your website, sign up a new client or – alternatively – plan your day. Keep asking “why” and then keep iterating towards perfection. Be unrelenting in your search for answers and then hold yourself to exceptional standards as that’s who you are.

You Are The Master Of Your Own Destiny

Entrepreneurial thinking is all about where we put the responsibility for our experiences. Although it’s not accurate to think that we have full control of all our experiences, it’s an unnecessary sacrifice to think that we have none. An entrepreneur is a person who is deeply engaged in his or her experience of life and willing and able to do the daily work of transforming it.

Extremely successful entrepreneurs take the time in order to analyse their lives as well as to look closely at their vision as well as their purpose in life. They put their lives on paper and take the time in order to construct mental images which guide them on their journey. While most people are winging it, entrepreneurs put their life mission, business vision and goals on paper. Then they go to work with carrying out their plan.
