You’ve Got the Mind of An Entrepreneur Whether You Like It or Not

by | Oct 20, 2009 | Cultural Creativity, Innerpreneurship



It’s true

No matter what you’re doing, whether you’re a therapist, coach, or artist, if you’re selling products or services, you’re an entrepreneur. It’s a mindset, not a title.

An entrepreneurial-minded person comes up with creative avenues to generate income. It doesn’t matter how they do it or what they know when they undertake it. All that matters is that they are building a system to make money.

Entrepreneurs aren’t just business geeks

Being educated in business and starting a business, doesn’t make you any more an entrepreneur than the photographer selling his work. You might know a bit more about running a business but you’re still hawking your shit to make a living. You’re still using your creativity to generate income.

It doesn’t matter whether you have an MBA. It matters that you have an idea and you are executing it.

Sustainable entrepreneurs must be marketers

If you want to stay in business, embrace that you are a marketer too. Always be working to understand how you can better connect your work with the people who want it.
