3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Jumping into Entrepreneurship

Why Entrepreneurship?

1. They Embrace Having a Path of Their Own

2. They Crave Flexibility

3. They Want More Stability

4. They Know They Can Make a Difference

Are You Doing What You Love?

  • I still wasn’t the person in charge — meaning I had the ability to influence decisions, but the larger strategic decisions were left to the CEO.
  • While I was building out someone else’s passion and dream, I wanted to build out my own.
  • I felt stifled by growth and oftentimes when working for someone else, they want you to be more invested in their vision than aligning that with your professional/personal goals.
  • No flexibility. Working from home (when I was in the workforce) was frowned upon, and it was difficult to do what I loved wherever I wanted.
  • No salary cap. I knew that my earning potential was beyond what anyone would be able to offer me and if I wasn’t getting the growth support, the decision-making power, and the flexibility, the money I was being paid wasn’t worth it long-term.

Are You Okay Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone?

  • Change up your daily routines and try doing one thing a week that scares you or is new to you. This will help change your perspective and build resilience.
  • Push yourself to learn something new every single day. This means reading for at least 30 minutes a day to stay on top of industry news, and anything that can help you navigate the world of entrepreneurship relevant to your niche.
  • Take action and make progress over trying to perfect everything. Nothing hinders growth more than trying to chase perfection. Instead, make execution a daily practice.

What Is Your Purpose?

  • Creating more jobs.
  • Be a solution to a problem that exists in the marketplace.
  • Be a solution that will provide tangible results and incredible value.
  • You want to create change.
  • You want a better life for yourself and for your family. This isn’t just about financials, but being able to have quality time for self-care and for your family. These things can’t be bought.
