Everyone an Entrepreneur

There are some age-old arguments about what the word Entrepreneur means and those qualified to be called Entrepreneurs. There is endless debate on whether everybody can become an Entrepreneur; Some experts have even gone ahead to suggest that Entrepreneur can be considered to be a job title.

I want to steer clear of all that and simply state that: everybody needs entrepreneurial training.

Learning to think and work as an Entrepreneur is incredibly empowering and it gives you an edge in any position you find yourself. One of the best things that happened to me was that I was able to (accidentally) learn entrepreneurship as a student in the university trying to convince people to sign up for the social media site I had built.

My entrepreneurial skills really transformed everything I do, even outside conventional business settings.

Entrepreneurial thinking forces you to take the initiative and get things done. Deciding on a bigger picture and getting the resources needed to make it all happen.

The global trend is that jobs are disappearing as software is becoming smarter, in that job-less future, the Entrepreneurs and their business systems will be one model that will continue to work.

Yes, in the future, everyone will have to be an Entrepreneur.

REFLECTION

ACTION

Learn and practice entrepreneurial skills, develop yourself to become an Entrepreneur.
