Entrepreneurs Must Be Crazy
You have to be crazy to be an entrepreneur. That’s what a lot of people say.
And many, many more think it; they just don’t say it out loud.
This opinion is expressed in many forms. We’ve grouped them into two ways of thinking: the old school approach and the new edition.

The old school
The old school said that the only people who become entrepreneurs are people who no one else will hire.
They aren’t smart enough.
They don’t have the skills.
They can’t keep a job.
They don’t have a choice.
The new version
The new version of this thought process is a little more subtle.
It says that if you can get a job instead of starting a business, do it. It’s much easier.
But it begs the question: Is easy your goal?
The problem with this way of thinking is that it assumes it is.
What if your goal is personal and professional fulfillment?
What if your goal is to make a difference?
What if your goal is to see how far you can go?
What if your goal is to directly see the results you can create?
If that’s the case, then NOTHING beats entrepreneuring.
But being an entrepreneur is risky. Working for someone else is less risky.
Again, we call BULLoney!
Tell that to all the people who got laid off in the Great Recession who are still looking for work.
Tell that to all the people who have started a part-time business just to feel like they have some control over the lives.
Tough is not crazy
Is it tough? Of course it is.
BIGG success in any endeavor is NOT easy. BIGG goal-getters don’t care.
If you want to do something BIGG with your life, it’s going to be hard. You’re blazing a trail few people dare to go down.
And if you’re a real entrepreneur, you don’t care. It’s just part of the game.
Besides, you’re too busy saving the world – or at least your corner of it!
That’s BIGG success!
Do you have an idea for a full- or part-time business but aren’t sure where to go with it? Maybe we can help.
