Topic: SEVEN(7) REASONS PEOPLE BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR comment by Emmanuel at 26-12-2018 04:26

Have you ever asked people or even yourself why you became an entrepreneur?

You have gotten several reasons or replies from people what exactly prompted them to become one. Entrepreneurship is a path less travelled but arguably one of the most rewarding and tactical route anyone can take to succeed. Been an entrepreneur has several advantages and disadvantages. Most people love to become one but are mostly scared of failing. An entrepreneur is a risk taker and that is why you will always see only few people with the guts walk on that lane.

Over the years, I have met with several entrepreneurs, today I will be sharing some of the cogent reasons given by them to become one.

1. They want to give orders not to be given

Would you rather be commanded or give commands?

For me, I love to do things I want, when I want it because I want to do it and not because a boss thinks I should do it. As an entrepreneur you create jobs for people, you make them do want you want.

As an entrepreneur you are not bound to a ‘9am to 5pm’ job schedule.

To be frank with you, been an entrepreneur at the beginning can be tedious, challenging and very demanding. That is why they think say; an entrepreneur is someone who lives a few years of their live doing what most people won’t so has to spend the rest of their live like most people cant.

As an entrepreneur, you are the architect of your own destiny.

2. Their lifestyle is not fit into the white collar job environment

 An entrepreneur once told me when he was working in the bank, he finds it so frustrating that he doesn’t enjoy whatever he is done at all, but immediately he made the bold decision of crossing the line, everything started to fall in place again. If you have ever find yourself in this type of situation, there Is a higher probability that you are not cut for the cooperate lifestyle

3. Their Ideas are rare and defies conventionality

Entrepreneurship takes imagination and perhaps even a dash of insanity. Entrepreneurs are world changers. They see the world as they want it to be, not how it is. From the genius idea that drove the Wright Brothers to create a flying machine to the madness that drove Steve Jobs and Bill Gates to develop personal computers, entrepreneurs pursue the ideas that others deem crazy.

Albert Einstein said, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”


4. To have time for themselves

Entrepreneurship gives you opportunity to have time do somethings you might not be able to do as a salary earner. There is a higher chance that you might even be able to work right from your house as an entrepreneur.

5. More work means more profit

As a salary, more work does not guarantee an increase in salary, you might be compensated one way of the other, but you will agree with me that as an entrepreneur and a master of your own business, you decide to put more effort in a task, you will definitely be rewarded for this.

6. They want to change the world

Entrepreneurs do not just want to make changes to their personal lives, they want to make changes to the world at larger. They are solution providers, where others see problems, they see opportunity.


7. To give back to the society

Most entrepreneurs you will see out there are philanthropist, they love to give most likely not because they have enough but know what it means to have nothing. When you finally become an entrepreneur, do not forget to help people. You should always remember that no one has ever become poor by giving.
