    Hooray! You’re Not Crazy, You’re an Entrepreneur!
    Hooray! You’re Not Crazy, You’re an Entrepreneur!I was once asked this question.“You already do so much, you have a great job, benefits, why on earth would you want to start your own business?” My answer came easy. "I want more."Now that might sound a bit greedy but me wanting more in many ways is...

    Although each one of these entrepreneurs was driven by different motives ,all were able to go against the logic of many others.Most entrepreneurs didn't dream of a business card with nice logo kept in their pockets,but of having the tools that help them deliver their core interests.So,its better for the new generation to own their tools that are stemming of their core skills,not of their business cards.They can also determine their way depending on their core interests.
    For every young entrepreneur I would ask them to focus on what they are passionate about and give them more focus and energy.The perversity of nature would say if you are young you can't carry heavy weights but if you are forced to do that, it will be better to keep the weights very close to your body.The same with the entrepreneurial ideas,keep them close to your mind and heart.When an entrepreneur owns his or her tools they will enjoy more and different degrees of freedom than others and their idea may take them further than they could expect,but keep the load lighter.,two riders of any creative idea is more than enough.Thank you @Katyan Roach for sharing your entrepreneurial spirit through an inspiring post.

    Thank you, Katyan, for this inspirational and motivational read. It certainly strikes me that being an entrepreneur takes guts, faith, 24/7 hard work, perseverance and big risks. But those who have been successful reap the rewards from the seeds they sow. I know that @John White, MBA @Javier 🐝 beBee @Juan Imaz @Candice 🐝 Galek and so many other successful entrepreneurs on beBee and elsewhere can attest to that. I envy you all. Bravo!

    Nice buzz, Katyan. I think a key word in being a successful entrepreneur is "focus". I can imagine it being a great feeling to be successful as an entrepreneur.

    #3 Great insight @Donna-Luisa Eversley - "I'd love to work on this with you, let's meet and discuss how you're progressing in a few days.." This is the hands down best way to motivate a person with a good idea. It's both supportive and adds an air of accountability. The better one can start preparing for that idea in a few days, the more material the mentor has to help (work) with.

    I love the skateboard truck diagram. Gives a lot of perspective on how complicated a good idea can get, and how much the labels peeling off can back your week up. This advice can be applied to any idea I feel. Tangible or not. Excellent article.

    Nice post @Graham🐝 Edwards!

    For me, what stands out is your memorable acronym, "A Time and Event Schedule To Make IT Happen (TESTMITH): This is a detailed calendar of events broken into weekly blocks that outline all the activities needed to progressively build your idea and make something tangible with it."

    I see how this could be used for more than building prototypes. Even simply for putting ideas into action and checking results. It is the discipline after and thought to make it real. Business or personal development.

    @Graham🐝 Edwards.. I'd like to the salesman threw out the idea and would have needed some guiding help or supportive interest via action to make it happen. I can say that there were times when I was a salesperson I had great ideas but was uncertain how to make it happen. I learnt early on to build relationships with people or my managers to stop them from saying "ok, go do it" but rather, "hey, that's a great idea, would you like some pointers on how to get it started, " or even a collaborative offer, "I'd love to work on this with you, let's meet and discuss how you're progressing in a few days.."
    In my career early on, I knew I needed to have more knowledge and desired to learn from others skilled in different areas. Murphy's law was the best thing that happened to me on occasions! Later when I had to lead, I would imagine what I'd like if the roles were reversed and adopted a coach/mentor leadership style.
    Good discussion started with this post!

    There are no guarantees,
    An investor doesn't guarantee success :)

    oh wait , a successful entrepreneur has credibility and plays around with investor money for bad ideas.

    It's an investment and not a loan.

    Comes to the fundamental question...Assuming the same ROI, who would be a better investment, the guy who has his dreams on the line or the guy who is experimenting diversification?

    Maybe the message was, take an informed decision, but he got too emotional :)
