E is for Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur: A bad ass business hustler.

They find opportunities in the market to make money. Whether it’s poultry, real estate, or computers, they will find the missing piece and capitalize on it.

This is what I find to be so intriguing. An entrepreneur is extremely creative because they see things that no one else has. Or they combine two different things and create a novelty product/service.

It’s a gift. But the best thing about an entrepreneur is that they will act on their idea. They’re do-ers. They GSD (Get Shit Done). They don’t make excuses. Instead of looking at what they don’t have, they make do with what they got.

I love hearing stories of start ups that started in basements, garages, in a bloody treehouse if that’s what it took. (Haven’t heard of a treehouse, but that’d be dope!) Back in the days, you needed a fat loan and corporations to support you blah blah blah. But now, a great idea, the Internet, and an unfaltering spirit does wonders.

I don’t like it when people call themselves entrepreneurs. It’s like someone introducing themselves as, “Grand Master of Kung-Fu.” Nah man. That’s something that other people call you, not a title you make for yourself. An entrepreneur isn’t concerned with what other people think of him/her. They just want to make their idea a reality.

In today’s world, skills are huge. That’s what resumes are essentially. A list of things that you can do and proof of where you’ve done it. But when I look at entrepreneurs, not all of them are computer scientists or rocket engineers. Most of the time they have a childhood curiosity or a deep passion for something that they then incorporate into whatever business. It’s awesome.

Cool, I got this block out of my brain. Time to continue forward and do some other writing. YUP.
