Can an Employee be an Entrepreneur?
Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking. It doesn’t mean that if you have a business you are already a 100% entrepreneur. Because even if you started a business and you still think like an employee, then there will be a problem for sure. But even if you are employed but think like an entrepreneur, it will not be as hard for you overcome your financial problems. “You should not put all your eggs in one basket” so to speak. Businessmen doesn’t just rely on one kind of business, they replicate success. If they have built a successful enterprise they duplicate it by offering franchise or to venture on other kinds of business. Likewise as an employee, we should build safety nets and not totally depend on employment.
Yes, engaging in entrepreneurship is not easy and no one really knows if the venture that you are going to take will succeed or not but true entrepreneurs have equipped themselves with discipline that enable them to manage and survive.
Since the arrival of the internet technology, many entrepreneurs became successful because they have harnessed power of it which decades ago were not possible. Now with just making a website and promoting it, any business minded individual can easily market their idea or venture which before requires thousands or millions of marketing budget just to advertise a business or a product like for example placing your ads on magazines, newspapers and media.
