Entrepreneureship Archives


Regardless of what  anyone believe or say, there are always those people who see only the “down” side of every situation. They constantly complain about the rain, and completely miss the rainbow that follows with the sun. 


Being an entrepreneur, starting your own business is not for the faint-hearted!  If you don’t go into it with your eyes wide open, expecting some bumps along the road, then don’t leave your comfort zone, that salaried job with its Perks.  I’ve heard so many people say, “I can’t leave my job now – I need the benefits.  They completely forget the benefits of having a dream, and working hard to make it a reality. 


There’s been much “hype” and “blather” that if you want to start your own business and you’re a woman, you are “Shoo-in” for loans etc.  Don’t you believe it!  A bank, is a bank and everybody seeking a loan must answer the bank’s 3 most burning questions.    


1- How much of your own money are you investing in yourself?


2- What are your assets?


3- How do you plan on repaying the loan? 


If you can’t satisfy the banker, then it doesn’t much matter whether you’re woman, minority, or vegetable! the loan won’t be forthcoming.  But don’t even think about getting a loan unless you can really afford it.


The thing is that you don’t really need a loan to start an internet business.  You can actually do it with very little money.


Now I said all that to say, don’t let that derail your dream.  Just keep on keeping on, and you’ll find out how it can be done. 


There are a lot of people out there ready and waiting to rain on your parade – don’t give them the chance.  Let them rain all they want, you just keep on marching toward your goal.  You write that business plan, your goals for the first year – and the second- and the third.  If you can get over these first bumps in the road, then you’re on your way, as Dorothy said “Down the yellow brick road”.


It seems that I’ve heard more “You can’t” than “Go ahead – give it a try” lately, and I just can’t understand why so many people are so anxious to shoot you down than help you along.


I’m here to tell you that if you have an entrepreneurial dream there are only two questions you have to ask yourself.  They are:


1- If I try it and fail, what’s the worst that can happen? 

2- Is that really any worse than if I don’t try at all? 





A step by step course on becoming a successful entrepreneur


How many times have you heard that phrase, pitch, advertisement, or whatever? Lots, I’m sure. It is used so much because marketers know that staying home and making money is the fondest dream of millions of people.


And why not?

Did you know that the majority of fatal heart attacks happen at 9 a.m. Monday morning? It’s true. It seems a lot of people would rather die than get back to the old grind after a weekend of freedom.


So when someone offers an opportunity or plan for you to take your job and shove it, yet still make enough money to live and pay all your bills, it sounds blissfully irresistible.


Of course, bliss and reality are always two different things.

Is it really possible to run a business from your own home that is more than a hobby or source of part-time income? Can you get rich working out of your own home? Can you really trade your cubical and necktie for blue jeans and the comfort of your own den?


Well, for your information, home-based businesses are one of the fastest growing kinds of enterprises in the world today. As I am writing this, millions of Americans are doing at least some form of work out of their homes, and the numbers are rising rapidly.

According to the U.S. Department of Labour, as many as 70 million people were working out of their homes by the year 2005. Government studies have indicated that as much as 75% of all work done could eventually be moved home.

The overwhelming majority of home workers, however, are not exactly getting rich. The average work-at-home American earns less than $15,000 per year.

That may not be bad as a supplement to a spouse’s full-time income, but let’s face it, fifteen grand is not much better than poverty.
As master marketer and author Dr. Jeffrey Lant said: “Frankly, I never saw any benefit to staying home and being poor.”

Lant, without so much as a business card, became a work at home  millionaire, and is a perfect example of what truly can be achieved if you are serious about chucking your day job, staying home, and not settling for peanuts in exchange for your freedom. You can have it all — you can stay home and make as much – and more – money than your current job provides you.

If you really want to know the ins and outs of becoming an entrepreneur, you need solid basis on which to build. You need determination and you need to develop the entrepreneurial attitude.
