5 Signs You’re an Entrepreneur
Have you considered starting your own business? Are you still debating if you’re ready and have the skills to be a Small Business owner? Here are 5 signs you’re ready to take a step forward in entrepreneurship:
You dream big
If you’ve often been called the idea-man/ woman, then you’re probably ready to start your own business. Starting any business requires a vision or a dream. Once you have the big picture goal in mind, you can build your business from bottom up.
You sweat the small things
A successful entrepreneur knows that it’s the little pieces that complete any puzzle. They’re not afraid to work on little things, even if it means late nights. If you have a ‘Nothing I do is beneath me, everything is work’ attitude, you will be just fine on your business venture.
You work hard
Understand this, for the first few years of your business, it will only be you running it. This means, you’re your own boss. So you need to be able to hold yourself accountable and work hard until your business has taken off. You will work late, you will work all the time and your business will be the only thing you will think about 90% of the time. Be sure you’re ready to make that commitment before you start a business.
You have ideas and opinions
Having an opinion about where you see your business headed is good. Having ideas to improve your business is even better. The best thing about being an entrepreneur is that you set the direction and goals for your business. You can then focus all your ideas on achieving
You work SMART
When it comes to running your own business, not only do you have to work efficiently and effectively, you have to be very good at time management. Which is why, you must have the ability to work SMART. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.
