How many of today’s mainstream brands are offering products and services that would have been considered impossible not all that long ago? Of course, Amazon immediately comes to mind…
Amazon rapidly grew from an unproven concept to one of the most valuable companies in the world within a relatively short period of time.
How many times do you think Bezos heard someone tell him what he was trying to achieve was impossible? Thinking back, how about Jobs, Gates, Walton, Dell, Disney, Ford, Branson? All were entrepreneurs!
Nothing is impossible provided there’s a plan and an unwavering commitment to excellence.
Want to be an entrepreneur? It’s impossible without these 3 characteristics
They go by many names: self-employed, 1099 Contractor, Side Hustle, CEO, Business Owner, or Agency Owner, but our favorite term is Entrepreneur. No more working for the “man!” Be your own boss, set your own hours, answer to no one is the cry of everyone that has ever had to punch a clock, ask to take a bathroom break or be elated with a 5% raise. Why would anyone want to work for someone else for 40 years when they can work for themselves and make millions?
If you could only will things into existence by belief, we’d all be the boss. With over 300 million people living in America today, only 15 million of those are self-employed full time.
We’ve all heard of the Pareto Principle, right? The 80/20 rule? In sales, business ownership, and entrepreneurship that means only 20% have the right skills, masteries and characteristics to succeed. The author of this article, Joshua Jones has personal experience in observing thousands of other entrepreneurs that makes him think Pareto might have under-promised and over-delivered. Seems as if only 5% have what it takes.
So what does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? Jones believes all the books, podcasts, blogs, webinars, and self-help seminars on this subject could be summed up in three simple characteristics found HERE.
