 “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” 
– Steve Jobs, Co-founder, CEO, Chairman Apple Inc.

  1. Andres,

    Being an entrepreneur is definitely a desire for many, but many never act upon that desire. What if Steve Jobs stopped at desire? Or Bill Gates, what if he let his journey stop at his desire and didn’t do anything to achieve his desire?

    The ability to turn an idea into a reality is so important. Reading over your list was refreshing. Turning an idea into reality takes hard work, as I’m sure you know. This post was very helpful and encouraging.



    1. Thanks Bryan. We look at companies like Apple and Microsoft and the millions they make, thinking there’s no way we could ever do that and that’s not true at all. People tend to forget that these two companies were started in a garage.

  2. Andy, thanks for this insightful list on what it takes to be an entrepreneur. To be honest, I wish I would have developed the right mindset while I was growing up, instead of just “do what you’re told, conform, follow the process, etc.”. Over the last few months I’ve realized that I’m willing to do what it takes to be financially secure, free and independent. I will check out your getting started page. Thanks again.

    1. Thanks Paul, I too wish I would of developed it at a younger age too. I just ignored it. Best of luck to you. Let me know if I can help.

    Nice post, I like your comprehensive list about, whether you could be an entrepreneur or not. It has some interesting points. I like the point of being willing to learn. and willing to ask for help.
    I may add that you may realise that it is a long-term activity.
    Thanks, good luck

  6. I must agree with you being a business owner takes a vision working hard and being deadicated and discipline, many person just want to jump in without proper planning and they have this belief that everything will be so easy when at times it is not, in order to get something out you must first put something in that is how it works. Your website is well detailed and filled with good information.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Norman. Sometimes I feel like it’s all the so called gurus out there that make it sound easy with the get rich quick claims.
