9 Types of Entrepreneurs — Which are you?
If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur you might think of an entrepreneur as someone who is a well balanced individual, seeking to change the world.
Here are 9 types of entrepreneurs that throw a spin on this image.
Personally, I’ve been 5 of these throughout my life
- Is working to make a Snapchat for cats
- Watched all of HubSpot’s videos and attends every “startup” talk.
- Follows Tim Ferris on Twitter and wants to retire on an island in 2 years
- Thinks they’re top dog and that everyone should try to be like them
- Probably is too cool to hang out with you unless you have a C level role
- Works at a large corporate that has a start up like culture in their “ideas hub”
- Enjoys job stability, good pay and the freedom to do anything as long as it aligns with the corporate strategy
- Uses cool tech to do something everyone understands but no one really understands
- Servers running some code you probably never heard of
- Probably uses Machine Learning/Visual Recognition/Block Chain
- Runs a flower store down the road or sells ties online, or something similar
- Earns enough to live a happy life.
- Not someone that fits the stereotypical image of an entrepreneur, but is one in their own right
- A kindapreneur that aimed big but failed.
- Discourages everyone from daring and recommends safe things like being a trusted mahogany reseller
- Made a business because they’re really really professional at something.
- Everyone from a retired accountant running their own firm to a former pro athlete selling their own brand of shoes
- Moon lights and probably sleeps 3 hours a night
- Has boxes of takeaway stacked in their kitchen
- Always has a newer/better idea to work on but never starts on any of them
- Enters every possible hackathon
