Have you ever laid awake at night thinking about what it would be like to be your own boss, to work for yourself, to have your own business – to be an entrepreneur?
If you are anything like me, I have wondered – why am I doing this, why am I working my ass off to support someone else’s dream? Why do I put in countless hours, filled with stress and frustration just to make someone else rich?
So… Can the Average Person Be a Successful Entrepreneur?
Unfortunately, as we grow up “in the system,” unless you had a business owner parent or family member as a role model, the idea of working for yourself or owning your own business was never really presented as an option.
Think about it… everything we have learned from a small child all the way up to a young adult, has actually worked against us for the dream of starting and running our own business.
We are taught to study for countless hours, get good grades, work hard so we can attend college to get a degree to find a safe, secure job with a big company.
This is what society has taught us – the norm is to work for someone else to earn a living.
