In our workplace or in our lives we have seen lots of bosses and leaders. But who is an entrepreneur and how to become an entrepreneur?
If you run a business such as a supermarket or a company, you are somehow an entrepreneur. But if you are not, you should read this very article. Being an entrepreneur is high risk and also high rewarded position. It’s full of stressful situations, but it’s also full of sense of accomplishment.
Becoming an entrepreneur
Becoming an entrepreneur is not as hard as it seems, as long as you have some patience and for sure a good idea. This is how you will be your own boss.
If you want to become an entrepreneur, first you should gain your knowledge by reading books and following entrepreneurship way.
We all know the advantages of being an entrepreneur, but less we heard about the risks and responsibilities.
As an entrepreneur, you have the full responsibility for your failure and success in your business. You should always be able to react and solve the problems that come up asap.
If you want to become an entrepreneur, you should teach yourself to accept your failures. The most important thing is how to react to them. All of the entrepreneurs have failed at least once in their life. Great people such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Elon Musk and… have failed once.
But the main difference between regular people to entrepreneurs is learning from the failures. There is no one who knows the first failure of the Right brothers (they burnt their garage to build the first plane).
List your strengths. Be honest with yourself as you consider your strengths and weaknesses. Every man/woman have got some strengths and weaknesses and you got to find them in yourself.
For becoming an entrepreneur you should keep your strengths and work on your weaknesses to turn them to strength.
Determine to succeed
Energy and determination will get you through many of the hurdles you will face as a beginning entrepreneur. Be idealistic enough to believe in yourself, but pragmatic enough to examine the realities of your situation.
If you believe that you would succeed, you would do your best. So, always determine your success in order to plan your jobs.
Understand the idea of “acceptable loss.” According to ‘’Forbes’’, “acceptable loss” is the idea that you should first determine the possible downside of your business venture and then invest only what you can actually afford to lose should your business turn out differently than you’d hoped.
This limits the scale of failure if your venture doesn’t work out. As you determine your success, you should consider the acceptable loss.
Determine what you can risk
Entrepreneurship is always a game of risk and reward, but often the risk is greater (especially in the beginning). Take stock of all your assets and figure out how much money (and time and energy) you actually have to invest.
In addition to considering your savings, credit, and other sources, consider how long you can afford to go without making a profit.
Small businesses are rarely profitable immediately; can you afford to not draw a salary for perhaps several months or even a few years?
One of the most important things in becoming an entrepreneur is flexibility. You can’t control everything about your business. If you’re overly committed to a plan, you may sabotage yourself.
Prepare your market analysis
If you have done good market research, you should be able to talk in specifics about your chosen industry or field, your target consumer market, and your projected market share.
This section should be as detailed as possible, as it needs to convince investors that you know what you’re doing.
One of the mistakes many beginning entrepreneurs make is failing to narrow their target market and trying to sell to too wide an audience. While it’s tempting to believe that everyone needs and will love your product or service, the reality is that they won’t. It’s okay to start small.
Determine your entrepreneurship way
Much of the advice for entrepreneurs is centered on finding ways to make time for themselves between their businesses. Do it the other way around and find a business structure that fits into your life.
Evaluate if your personal goals are still compatible with your business goals. If yes, and you are motivated, then keep going! If not, try to find ways to make your business fit into your life better.
Starting your business while you have another stream of income can be less stressful.
Try to obtain a part-time position, where you can learn valuable lessons for your own business in a related industry, where you could network in your business area.
Don’t expect to build your empire overnight, it is totally normal to start out small.
