Go From Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur

Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur

What’s a Wantrepreneur? 

Do you have a friend or family member that’s always talking about their bright idea?  Or talking about their dream of opening a restaurant? Or lawn care business? Or some other business?  They talk and talk about it, but never seem to take any steps to accomplish anything toward their dream. 

A wantrepreneur is someone who really wants to be an entrepreneur, but doesn’t take the steps to reach this goal.

There are some steps you can take to go from wantrepreneur to entrepreneur:  

1.  Keep what you’re doing to yourself. 

Your friends and family aren’t going to be excited as you about your business.  What’s more likely to happen is they may worry you will fail and they’ll voice those concerns.  You should not listen to any negative talk.  Stay focused and stay the course.  Once you’ve accomplished what you set out to do and gotten some momentum then shout it to the world.

“I made a conscious decision not to tell anyone in my life. Now I tell people – don’t tell anyone your idea until you have invested enough of yourself in it that you are not going to turn back. When a person has an idea at that conception moment it is the most vulnerable – one negative comment could knock you off course.” – Sara Blakely

2. Throw out the excuses

Excuses get you nowhere!  Complaining there’s not enough time or money does not create more time or money.  Instead figure it out and keep moving forward. 

3. Be prepared to make sacrifices 

Sacrifices may need to be made.  In the beginning of your business you may put in more time and effort.  Finances may be limited so you may not be able to hire help, meaning you may have to wear many of the hats.  Getting up early or working late to accomplish everything may be a sacrifice that needs to happen.  But don’t worry it’s not forever.  Any money you make can be reinvested and you can begin to outsource and hire help.  Before you know it your business will be profitable.

4. Start with a plan:  If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” 

Sit down and make some decisions.  What are you going to do?  What are some of your goals for the business?  How do you plan to get there?  You don’t need anything complicated but a plan of action will get a long way to realizing your goals and dreams.

5. Do the work: 

You’ve started a plan, now you should take action. Small daily actions build up to big results. 

6.  Finish what you start 

An entrepreneur creates a business they can be proud of, the good and the bad.  

If you have a dream to have your own business, what’s stopping you from being your own boss?  Take the steps to go from wantrepreneur to entrepreneur.  The hardest step is the first step.  I encourage you to go after your dreams and make them a reality.  You’ll be glad you did.
