What It Takes To Become An Entrepreneur [Infographic]


We have written so many articles on Bit Rebels about becoming an entrepreneur, and you can probably tell that both Richard and I have a real passion for it. Entrepreneurs just view the world differently, and they wake up each day excited to face the challenges that arise because if it wasn’t for following their dreams, those challenges wouldn’t exist in the first place.

I often listen to Gary Vaynerchuk‘s videos because they are so inspirational, and I remember he once said that every entrepreneur in the United States should be thankful. We should be grateful that we live in a country where we can stay up all night long if we want, working on our passion, and then go to our day jobs in the morning feeling like we are about to collapse from exhaustion. There are many countries where people aren’t allowed to do that. They aren’t allowed to follow their dreams, and we happen to live in a country where we can. That always stuck with me because it’s so true, and I’m thankful everyday for that privilege. If you live in a country where you can do the same, I hope you are thankful too.

If you have your own dream of becoming an entrepreneur, and if you haven’t taken that first leap of faith to start pursuing it, I just want to tell you that you can do it! You really can. I’m not saying to quit your day job today and venture out on your own path with no plan, but I’m just saying that there is no better day than today to get started. Just put one foot in front of the other and start making progress. I promise, you will be so happy you did.

Like I said, if you do a search on this site, you’ll see tons of information about starting a business (even a startup). I want to add a little something to that today. This is a very small yet very motivational little infographic created by Funders and Founders called Becoming An Entrepreneur. Although it’s important to work on your mindset, being an entrepreneur is mostly about taking action. Remember to keep things as simple as possible. As Leonardo da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Being an entrepreneur is like anything else in life, you get out of it what you put into it. Can you learn WordPress? If so, there is your prototype, right there. See, there is nothing stopping you!

I’ve got a question. When I read these blogs I can definitely relate to what you are saying. But we are doing skills training in a third world country where people can not take risks, don’t have an entrepreneurial mindset etc but need to survive and eat. How on earth can I help them to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and actually go from skills training to owning a business and making money with the skill they get from us. We find we teach them in a skill, do personal development and give them a great entrepreneurs course but they can still not get to the point of starting their own business.
