Today, I will tell you about a fine line between entrepreneurship and decency.
I have great respect for those who are entrepreneurial from a visionary perspective. However, in recent years, I have witnessed very different strategies and sometimes ideas about entrepreneurship that do not step on the ground.
Many entrepreneurs I know are looking for “an extraordinary idea that will change their lives.” I think it’s because they want to make money quickly and easily.
But unfortunately, very few jobs start this way and achieve success. Because it may be very classic, but “free cheese, only in a mousetrap!”
DO YOU WANT TO BE A SUCCESS STORY?
Making a lot of money, being loved, respected, feeling valued and similar gains… Many people are exploring ways to be applauded by others rather than being applauded. It’s also a bitter fact that they sometimes lack foresight in doing so.
I always tell my students that I support mentoring, especially in the field of work and accumulation:
“TO BE A REAL SUCCESS STORY FOR A BUSINESS, IT MUST BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE ENTREPRENEUR’S LIFE STORY.”
Well, what does this mean?
A person who has not been interested in “tennis” in his life, has not played tennis, has not watched a tennis match, his interest is not tennis, the probability that his attempt to establish a firm that sells tennis shoes will fail is almost 100%.
DREAMS MUST ALSO HAVE A LIMIT
Dreaming is an important stage that leads you to success and allows you to persevere in following your goals. However, the idea that your life can change direction in an instant, that you can give up everything you have done until that day, work and time, work that you specialize in, and achieve great success in an area that you are never familiar with is also a big but empty dream for this reason…
So, in short, it is necessary to recognize the fine line between entrepreneurship and decency. In other words, it is important to remember that when you dream big, you can face the fact that you have nothing left.
For these reasons, I find it strange that very successful bankers, stockbrokers, businesswomen, businessmen give up their 20-30 years of labour, knowledge and experience and care about the coaching profession.
I can even say that I find it a little foolish to think that successful people who leave their specialties will step into different areas of expertise, such as breathing coaching and yoga coaching (you know what I mean☺) and achieve great success…
Do you ask why?
Because years of labour, time spent, knowledge, experience and experience go to waste…
Another problem is that you have failed hundreds of people who can benefit from your efforts, experience, knowledge…
And unfortunately, life doesn’t go that way.
LIFE DOESN’T BRING US TO WHERE WE ARE BY CHANCE
Life is a ladder. Every step we take prepares us for the next step. Ignoring our past, leaving the branch of business in which we specialize and stepping into a completely different sector, chasing empty dreams is not entrepreneurship, it is stupidity.
At this point, I have listed 7 important questions that an entrepreneur should ask to be useful to you. If you don’t want to be disappointed, be sure to ask yourself these questions before starting a job:
1. How much knowledge and experience do I have in my industry? How much experience do I have in this industry?
2. What will happen if I fail? What do I do? When everything goes wrong, if I can’t make money and waste time on it, what’s my plan?
3. Do I like my job enough to continue even when everything goes wrong? Will I be able to endure all kinds of difficulties? Do I have the knowledge and experience to overcome the challenges?
4. When things go wrong, when I’m unresolved, who will support me? Am I going to do this alone, or do I need others?
5. Do I have the savings I need to grow this business or do I have to find one or several investors?
6. Do I have a clear, detailed action plan, future projection? Are my A-B-C-X plans ready to move on?
7. What’s my EXIT plan?
THOSE WHO TRY TO DO WORK THEY DON’T KNOW ARE DOOMED TO FAIL
I advise you to read the above questions over and over again and carefully. As can be seen, if you do not have the enthusiasm, knowledge and experience that you can fight all kinds of difficulties for the job you are thinking of starting, especially if you are not able to do 80% of the job yourself at the initial level, don’t start that job!
For a business to be successful, you need 100% dominance, especially in the first months. So the failure rate of people trying to do work they don’t know is more than 90%. I mean, the number of people who are disappointed is unfortunately high.
STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW
In short, do what you know.
Work on your past story, your origin story.
Understand your origin story, your successes, your failures, what you’ve learned, your experiences, your expertise. Invest in yourself, complete your education and personal development.
