An entrepreneur is a person who puts together his own & team’s time, talents, and money to make a vision real. He is a coordinator, on which his team believes because earning money is not his only mission. For entrepreneurs, creating something valuable is the first target.  

Entrepreneurs don’t fear to take risks for his business or organization. Instead, he organizes and manages the company.

The Rule of Thumb for Entrepreneurs

The first need of entrepreneurs is not fearing the outcome and trying to build something out of his decision or action. Before having the ability, he must have the confidence to tackle the upcoming challenges, since talent beats hard work when talent doesn’t work hard.

However, it doesn’t matter where he is in, and he can always be an entrepreneur. The company, office, or team should be a group of entrepreneurs, for guaranteed success.

In addition, an entrepreneur must be fear-less. His only intention must be the advantage and outcome of his project. He must remember that every problem has a solution and must find it, whether in a short or long time. In addition, he must be open to new thoughts and ideas, literally. Also, he has to choose the future of his company and job, over the past and present. It is the formula for a long- term impact.

An entrepreneur must have the following qualities, almost right from his birth

By birth, I mean his professional delivery, on his journey of being an entrepreneur. 

 1. Passion  

One must always think about a business’s ideas in whatever situation it is. He must have a passion to fulfill them. His ultimate destination should be invention and problem-solving.

 2. Adapting to the Situations 

Like a liquid takes the shape of the container it is in, an entrepreneur must be active in whatever condition and situation he is in. In other words, he should be open to changes and be ready for the challenges. 

He must think about solving the problem and understand the problem rather than complain about it, which most people do. Moreover, entrepreneurs do not lose out on opportunities, just like Uber and Pathao in Bangladesh.

3. Self-Invention 

An entrepreneur must first know his own capabilities and trust me; Above all, it’s the toughest job to identify in which field he is best at. The word “all-rounder” sounds only useful in the cricket field, but in real life, he is not always expected to be an all-rounder. 

Teamwork is excellent because his team already supports his vision. In addition, he should use all his talent for the sake of this particular work and team without showing any laziness. And that is only possible when he chooses his interest as his job. After all, what is more enjoyable than getting paid or earning for doing what u love?

4. Confidence

If an entrepreneur lacks confidence even by a percent mentally, then he has a big obstacle on his way of being an entrepreneur. In simple words, a confident person means who owns his own ideas and talent.  

Ownership can only be shown after applying and proving them in real life. After that, “No Risk, No Gain” must be his favorite proverb. If he has confidence, then it can easily be said that he has half of all the qualities which are needed to be an entrepreneur.

5. Positivity 

Sometimes, positivity becomes the backbone of confidence. Similarly, he should face them as a real challenge. Rejection should be like an invitation to search for another opportunity for him.

6. Fearlessness 

An entrepreneur must be fearless. Therefore, people around might ask why entrepreneurship, startup, and not corporate jobs. Including education, wit, and team, he must refuse to give up. However, his future biography is filled with phrases like “A shot in the dark,” “Fighting against the odds,” “Exploring uncharted territories.” 

He must not be scared to fail. Nobody invented an engine for the first time; nobody discovered an island their first time but kept working and trying. They refused to give up, that’s why we remember them today. 

If the room is dark and you want to switch on the bulb, you should try all the switches while others will definitely do the job. In conclusion, if you face any problem, u should just grind your feet and work for it. External factors are not in his hands; he has only control over his work. So he should seize every opportunity and work hard.

Job or startup?– Where should entrepreneurs start?

Even if you may technically become an employee in a corporate company (if not a startup), it’s always good to be an entrepreneur first in your mind. That’s when you will be able to enjoy your work, selflessly, and for your own vision, plan, and team
