“Entrepreneur” has been a craze for youngster nowadays. More than the passion, it has become a popular theme.
You are hardly 21yrs old, how will you plan your future at this age? What is your source of income? What is the guarantee that you will succeed? Why don’t you settle for something that gives a stable income? On top of it, if the founder is a woman, then there is a lot of chaos.
Why is it so, experience matters?
All the experienced personalities out there have at least a dozen of advice for each one of you. But before getting the title “experienced,” down the lane, they were once “freshman, ” just like you.
Where do we go wrong?
In spite of all the planning, updates on all the emerging as well future technologies and being connected with the big giants in the firm. Still, we go wrong…
1. Meet the death
Being positive drives you forward in all circumstances, at the same time have the guts to be negative. Be prepared for the worst. Ask yourself what if this doesn’t work? What if the investor withdraws? What if we go empty?
Consider 360-degree possibilities, before you plan for the success.
2. Be scared
If you are scared to fail, you won’t fail, have that lump of fear in the throat but stay confident of winning. Make sure you consult people-experienced ones in your firm or even related to, friends and well-wishers. Note: Only sensible pieces of advice are acceptable. Stay away from dangerous de-motivators.
3. Make your way
Feel comfortable with trial & errors. Remember, you are an entrepreneur, and entrepreneurship is all about uniqueness. Don’t expect the strategy your friend tried in his business to work for you as well; it might not be successful at all time. Don’t feel silly to try out new ideas, at times those might seem stupid- what if it works!
4. Make it simple
There is only 24hrs a day, which is insufficient for blooming entrepreneurs. Plan your work and manage your team with simple tasks and then collaborate.
5. Stay focused
Be stern on your decisions, while think loads before you arrive at one. Set your goal short; you feel satisfied and encouraged with easy accomplishment. Never stop for a break.
Be your own motivator.
