Entrepreneurship – It Ain’t for Everybody!
Hustle, hustle, hustle, HARD! – We all know those lyrics, but is hustling right for you?
Gone are the days of hustlers being only drug dealers and pimps. This is 2017 and just about anyone can be a hustler. All you have to do is understand where there is a need, build trust, and start a business.
See that section where all the bubbles intersect? That is what you should focus on. When you find something you are passionate about, you’re actually pretty good at it, and people will pay you for doing it – you have found your purpose!! I have two passions: helping people and writing. The point where these two passions meet is where success happens!
You also need to understand that being an entrepreneur is not for the lazy or uninspired slacker! It takes work! You will work when no one else is working.
Unlike many hustlers, I do believe that hustlers do sleep and we need our sleep. However, you will catch me working until it’s time to go to sleep. You will find me working on a Saturday, while my son is napping (which is when I wrote this) and you will see me working between 5:00 a.m. – 7:00 a.m. before he wakes up. Even when we’re sleeping, we’re working, thinking, evaluating, contemplating, and worrying. We work even when there is not an immediate payment to be received. We do it because it is our passion.
Now you know what it takes to be a hustler/entrepreneuer but are you ready???
You already know what I’m going to say! What do you actually know about this hustle? Have you conducted any RESEARCH? What is the average pay in your area? Are there jobs currently available? What are the educational and basic qualifications? Do you meet them? Do you need to gain experience, education, job specific skills, certifications, or licensure? What is the hustle's expected career forecast? Is this a growing industry or a dying one? Are there organizations you should join for exposure and gain insight? Don't just jump into something because it is exciting right now. Make sure it is worth the time, energy, and resources you will invest in it.
