There’s always the age old chicken and the egg question about whether entrepreneurs are born or made, but the bottom line is that entrepreneurs are those who develop innovation after innovation to improve our world. The ability to take “nothing” and build it into a business that helps employ thousands and generate millions in revenue should be celebrated.

Entrepreneurship is alive and well and here are 16 reasons why you should consider taking the plunge too.

This is a stylization of an article by Gresham Harkless, "16 Awesome Reasons Why You Should Be an Entrepreneur" on under30ceo.com

This presentation is designed to stand alone, without having to be presented in person. Enjoy

  • I don't 'disagree' with anything you've written in your slides, but I think people 'thinking about being an entrepreneur' should think about a lot more than just the 16 points listed herein. You might say, 'well of course', but I bring this up because I have met countless people who justify 'being an entrepreneur' based on the naive notion that they'll 'strike it rich' with minimal effort and because they're 'just so talented' or 'they'll find a programmer' or whatever... People who actually know what go into starting a business are consistently successful...those who do not, are not.

    Consider the author's statement: 'The ability to take “nothing” and build it into a business that helps employ thousands and generate millions in revenue should be celebrated.' I know lots of people who take this to heart. I know people who quit their jobs because of this. They think that because they have an idea and they 'want to be an entrepreneur', that the world is at their fingertips. And what happened?

    Basically none of them are making any money, and their startups have almost zero traction (this includes programmers who actually had the ability to make their product).

    I'm not trying to say you shouldn't be an entrepreneur. In fact, I highly support entrepreneurship, and it's worked for me, and it can work for you too. What I don't support, though, is making a decision based on romanticism.

    My final conclusion is this: if you want to 'be an entrepreneur', that's great. Just realize that reading more articles and watching more presentations and going to more Meetups and reading 'The Lean Startup' are basically getting you no closer to that goal. Save up some money, jump in, actually do something, start learning the hard way, and don't pursue some'pie in the sky' startup idea because all of your other friends look down on 'lifestyle businesses' that 'aren't innovative' (even though these friends probably have not themselves been successful at starting their own business). Build a stream of income that you can use as a foundation to support yourself, and then move onto something more exciting if that's what you want to do. This is what has worked for me, and is probably what will work for you as well.

  • @hudali15 Agreed! I think that's one of the fascinating parts of entrepreneurship that organizations and companies that employ thousands of individuals was once started by a person with an idea.
