Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.
The only guarantees in life are the ones you create for yourself. My wish is for everyone to take steps out of their comfort zone and build something their future self will thank them for.
Let’s really face it- the world in which we live is not the same as our parents’ or their parents’. We’re finding less truth in the “go to a good college, get a good job so you can retire at 65 and play golf all day with money in the bank” story. Today, it is “arguably riskier to depend on your job”, as Under30CEO would agree.
Being an entrepreneur helps grow the economy, says the Bureau of Labor.
Understand leverage and you won’t sleep tonight. Understand that you can create something that reaps 100% of the efforts of masses, rather than 100% of your own efforts.
Entrepreneurs explore multiple streams of income. Do your reading and researching. Study and follow the trends of the economy, then position yourself in front of it.
Entrepreneurs seek to create residual income. Residual income is defined as “income that continues to be generated after the initial effort has been expended.” Build something once and have it make money for a lifetime and beyond.
Sometimes you have to say “yes” to opportunities then learn how to do it later. You’ll never regret saying “yes” to life.
