What Do I Need to Become an Entrepreneur?

Being an entrepreneur is not one for the faint hearted; it’s generally very risky and very difficult at times but with great risk comes great reward. Managing risk is the name of the game. Here are some of the things I learnt being an entrepreneur thus far.

Keep your head down work and keep focused.

.Risk taker

Taking risk is fundamental to being an entrepreneur. A lot of ppl think risk is a bad thing but once managed can be a very useful.


Visionary- dream big and reach for the stars, you must always think big and think nothing is impossible; that mentality will assist and help you achieve the biggest goals.


. Quintessential in anything you do in business and furthermore in life.

Making notes are important for future planning or doumenting ideas.


Every business or entrepreneur must have personal and business goals. You must be clear, strong minded and focused to achieve both.

.Team work

it requires a team to get things done, no one ever did anything or achieved anything great on their own. Always surround yourself with a great team.

Team work makes the dream work.

. New Trends

always stay on top of new trends in the industry that you are in, it can exponentially increase your business and guide to make the right decisions.

. Strong Mentality and Grit

Your mind is one of the the strongest muscle in your body and to be in any business you need to have a strong mentality, you are going to have a lot of doubters, naysayers you need to keep your mind bullet proof and stay focused to achieve any goal you set for your self as an entrepreneur.

. Support system

Things don’t always go the way you want it to go and you will need people to vent, cry and just bounce off ideas with, a strong support system whether friends, family or even business colleagues are important to keep going when the going gets tough.

Everyone needs support in order to reach to the top.

. Strong work ethic

To reach to the pinnacle of any career hard work is always what is required. It is said 90 % hard work and 10% talent, you must work on your craft everyday and all the time it’s the only way to become the best, it’s easier when you are doing what you are passionate about.
