An entrepreneur is a fighter





A lot of people are throwing around the term entrepreneur but don't really know what it means. 


I get it. Entrepreneurs seem to have amazing lives. No boss, lots of money, freedom, autonomy, big spirits, and pretty much get to do what they want to do all day and get paid for it.You get to be in charge and make the most important decisions. It costs to be the boss and it sounds good to say you've paid it...



That's just the glamorous side of it. The reality of it is, an entrepreneur has to build anything they want to call their dream. If you've ever tried to start and run a businesses, or even just one business you'll know there's an ugly side.The side that most people can't endure or deal with. The side that will make you quit and run home to mommy corporate America faster than you can spell BOSS! 

Entrepreneurship comes with its share of ups and definitely with it's share of downs. The actual working and growing of the business. The competition. The loneliness. The irregular salaries and work schedule. Your business is like a living organism. It's your baby. You can't just drop it when things don't go your way. You can't put it on the back burner. You can't just quit if things get difficult. You can make a lot of money, you can also lose a lot of money. You'll have to be self reliant. You'll have to work harder for yourself and your family than you ever worked for a job. You'll have to focus harder than you ever have before. 

An entrepreneur is a fighter. If you're not ready to grit your teeth and dig in, don't take the plunge into entrepreneurship. It's not for the faint at heart. Go get a job. Build someone else's dream if you're not ready to fight for yours. There are much easier ways to make money. 


Am I saying you can't do it or telling you not to? No way!

 I'm just telling you to get on your guard and prepare for battle if you want in! 

To your your freedom..

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
