2008- Courage under Fire! Everybody wants to be an Entrepreneur.

2 06 2008

Everybody wants to be an Entrepreneur. The idea of owning the title of ENTREPRENEUR fascinates everybody and equally excites and fires the courage within us all but very few who wish to have the title of ENTREPRENEUR actually know what to do let alone handle the pain the Entrepreneur’s are confronted with every day!

Million Impossible was created to help Entrepreneurs initially in the UK to network together and share ideas, increase sales, decrease purchasing costs and above all to promote themselves and their businesses.

What we have found is that there are very few people that actually come to the table fighting for that piece of the sales pie or indeed wish to save 5% on the bottom line! Astounding isn’t it to think that we all class ourselves as Entrepreneurs, however, many of us do not actually know the first thing about Entrepreneurialism and that’s why so many fall at the first sign of pressure..

When you finally take the step to becoming an Entrepreneur ,did you really think and plan out your operation and even make some kind of contingency plan? – we’ll you are not alone most of us are the same as we march into our start ups like something resembling a scene from the film “The Charge of the Light Brigade”.

If your thinking about becoming an Entrepreneur then think again, think again and then think again and then ask your self the following question

ARE YOU PREPARED TO GIVE UP YOUR LIFESTYLE, YOUR ASSETS, YOUR TIME, YOUR ENERGY AND YOUR HEART MIND AND SOUL TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS? ARE YOU PREPARED TO GO TO HELL AND BACK – BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE.

If the answer is no to any of the above then choose another path as being an Entrepreneur is not for you!

During your journey, unless you are very lucky and have heaps of money at least 90% of budding Entrepreneurs will reach a point where they either have to sell everything they own to continue to support their dream or you may indeed have already sold everything in order to continue or close down.

If your product is not working and there has been little or no take up in the market, then it may well be time to hang up your boots and look for a new idea (which a lot of entrepreneurs do) . Now if your product is working and you need a cash injection to bring your business into profitability then of course you should consider consider selling some of the equity in your business and bring in a partner as 70% of something is far better than 100% of nothing.

There are so many business meeting clubs, networking events and websites that entrepreneurs do not know which way to turn……. My point is this.. The courage required to stay the distance as an Entrepreneur, that we should have all considered some pre schooling, especially if you from a young age have not been exposed to either a family or Friend who runs a business.

I grew up working for my father in the London street markets and this gave me the tough exterior and implanted survival instincts into me, which has helped me navigate the at times perilous path that i have chosen to take.

Are there days when i just feel i would like to go back into a normal job – Yes of course, I think about all the time and more so when i have had a tough day, which seems to be every day at the moment.

Are there days when i just feel that i want to give in? Yes and i guess the thing that keeps driving me is that i still believe that i am here for a reason and that is what i have been searching for my whole life – My reason!

So if you can handle your mind being tortured and your heart being ripped out and you think that you will have courage under fire then you just might make it as an Entrepreneur!
