The Age of the Entrepreneur - 10
1. Entrepreneurs are not concerned about credentialism. They know that most innovations come from people with no formal education or training in the industry they play.
2. Entrepreneurs get out of their brains. They get out of themselves and into the world so they can see problems from a total different point of view.
3. Entrepreneurs create revolutionary new approaches to problem solving. They use the skepticism of experts as a proof they are doing the right things.
4. Entrepreneurs don’t need to try to “think outside the box.” They “live outside the box.” They live in a world of their own as they create a new world for others to see.
5. Entrepreneurs don’t know it cannot be done. They thrive in the presence of insurmountable obstacles to create valuable solutions. They keep going until they find what they are and even what they aren't looking for.
6. Entrepreneurs aren't blinded by their expertise. They love chasing what seems absurd and impossible to the experts.
7. Entrepreneurs are fascinated with observation. They are always curious and they don’t refuse to see the reality presented to them.
Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Share them with others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
