Let The Entrepreneur Journey Begin
Money makes the world go round, as the song says. Except it doesn’t, of course, that’s something to do with gravity and happens completely free of charge. However, money does have an impact on just about everything else, so it is worth doing everything you can – within certain legal and moral boundaries of course – to bring in a little bit more. If you can make money in a few different ways, in a few different places, it is amazing how this will make things a lot more bearable. Instead of waiting for a monthly pay check, money comes in all the time like little gifts. The entrepreneur has this experience more often than most.
George W Bush once said “The problem with the French is that they have no word for entrepreneur”. Except he didn’t. But the old story brings to mind the fact that entrepreneurs are widely admired and sought out in most societies. People with the capability to raise cash quickly and frequently will never cease to be a source of awe for people who will tend to wonder where the next dollar is coming from. The Internet has made the world an even more cash-filled place for entrepreneurs to operate – now you don’t even need to be in the same country as the money to earn it. All you need is an idea, the ability – and the drive – to sell it, and the resources to make it into a reality.
Internet entrepreneurship is a beautiful thing. Say you love creating websites. There are hundreds upon thousands of companies out there who have either no website, a really bad website, or a decent website that is out of date because the guy who designed it does not work there any more. Having a good website can make a huge difference to a company’s – or an individual’s – profitability, and they are prepared to pay for this. You, the Internet genius that you are, can be the one to profit from their desire to harness the power of the web. Business is something that to the outsider can often seem like a foreign language, but once you’re in there you will find that it is actually pretty easy to pick up.
Of course, entrepreneurs exist in places outside of the Internet. Entrepreneurs exist wherever there is a gap in the market, because they spend their lives looking for a gap in the market. And if there is no gap, they will create one. Hell, a good entrepreneur can even create a market. Money can be made in so many different places, in many different ways, and an entrepreneur – I should say a good entrepreneur, will see opportunities to make money and drum up business where other people see problems and dead ends. An entrepreneur needs to be unafraid of risks, and certain that they will succeed. Does this sound like you? If so, then this blog could be the place for you!
