Think about it. The first creature to strike out on his own – to decide that working for someone else wasn’t an option – was the devil. He decided that working in hell for himself was a much better option than working in paradise for someone else.
Considering a jump into the wild? Let me recommend that you first consider two tips on becoming an entrepreneur:
- The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Working for yourself can sound like an ideal situation but many entrepreneurs will attest to the fact that despite its many positives it can easily become hell.
- Pride comes before the fall. Seize it, and especially as an entrepreneur, you will face the fire.
Luckily, as entrepreneurs, we are not bound to follow the same path as the first to market. Go in with your eyes wide open; don’t expect the course to be sunshine and roses. Stay humble; realize that you work for those whom you serve — God, your clients, your employees, and the greater good.
