Simply Entrepreneurs We Are Not

by | Sep 11, 2008 | Innerpreneurship


Saying we are entrepreneurs is not giving us enough credit. We are more than that. We are innerpreneurs and we are a whole other tribe.

We Aren’t All Business.

We do what we are. Our businesses have been started for our personal fulfillment. They are our means for expression and our avenue to make a difference. They were not started to for monetary reasons.

Life experience and exploration energize and inspire us. We do not want our businesses to consume our lives. We want to travel, learn and grow.

We are Idealists, Psychologically.

Our temperament, I believe, is what really makes us innerpreneurs. We are idealists naturally.

Dr. Keirsey defines idealists as people who:

  • are enthusiastic, trust our intuition, yearn for romance, seek our true selves, prize meaningful relationships, and dream of attaining wisdom.
  • pride ourself on being loving, kindhearted, and authentic.
  • are giving, trusting, spiritual, and focused on our personal journey and human potential.

Idealists have the iNtuative Feelers (or NF) aspects of their personality type.

I doubt that is true of every ‘entrepreneur’ you meet. We are unique and we are going to change the world.

The idealist temperment is just a theory. Let me know if it describes you.
