Passion is the most essential element in business. it ranks top on entrepreneurs check-list Now listen carefully, before you throw your job in your boss’s face, consider next whether you have and enthusiasm for the idea of running a business. Of striking deals like Donald Trump with suppliers. Of handling technology problems,invoicing snags. handling poring spreadsheets and being occasionally slapped by customers who woke up from the wrong side of the bed. And that is just the beginning.
Does these thought excite you or horrify you?
There is more to it than just enjoying the world of business.
Probably of more importance is having an appetite for engaging with other people. This is because entrepreneurship is fundamentally about people and relationships. Its about forging social connections with investors,suppliers, employees, customers, and even competitors.
Even with the best business plan investors are only going to stump up funds if they trust you to deliver on your plan. Suppliers need to understand you vision. Employees need some persuading to join your little start-up outfit rather than some established firms like Apple. It goes without saying that customers will need some more convincing to buy your products or services. In addition it wouldn’t hurt to have a friendly relationship with competitors to keep up with new trends in your industry.
If all of that communicating and negotiating, and influencing and persuading sounds like your idea of hell, then entrepreneurship is not for you. Stay with your boss still or find a more comfortable firm to stay with. No harm. Avoid having to get your hands dirty with horrible responsibility of financial goings-on and business decisions, and dealing with people on daily bases.
