If you’re standing on the precipice of making the decision to become an entrepreneur, it’s time to jump in. There are too many opportunities to wait any longer. And the longer you wait, the harder it is to make that leap of faith.
First, there are a number of experts out there who will tell you about the “shared attributes” of the best entrepreneurs. Characteristics like dedicated, persistent, positive attitude, and self-confident are often used to describe them. However, one of the most important traits that entrepreneurs routinely demonstrate is the willingness to commit.
As the BusinessDay.com article, “Entrepreneurs see what others do not see,” suggests, “If you waste time pondering whether to give it a go they could beat you to market. Many more entrepreneurs regret not starting sooner than wish they had waited longer.”
And if that’s not enough to get you moving in the right direction, here is more sage advice:
- Start early before you have anything to lose: career, house, savings, or family commitments.
- Learn entrepreneurship in business school.
- If the economy still scares you, check out the article, “Becoming an Entrepreneur in a Down Economy.”
- Look to the Internet for support when it comes to useful finance, technical, training, and marketing tools. There are even mentoring programs for women small business owners, entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurial green businesses.
