5 signs you're an entrepreneur !

I'm currently amazed (and a bit obsessed !) by entrepreneurship so I did some reading.  These are some interesting things that I've picked up.  I think it's so interesting to see how entrepreneurs have a completely mindset compared to the rest of the people (apparently called "consumers" ).

Here are 5 signs that make you an entrepreneur:

1. You know your time is valuable

you outsource whenever you can and get other people to carry out mundane tasks for you.

2. You didn't just buy yourself a job

being an entrepreneur doesn't mean that you are working 24/7- you work smart but hard.  When you're spending all your time running the business you maybe be spreading yourself thin, with little to show for.

3. You are a big picture person

you are not bogged down by the details.  You know how to bring resources together to work for you.

4. You're not a nice person... least some of the time.  You can't be a push over if you want to achieve your goal.  You know your limits and know when to put your foot down.

5. You always think "what's in it for me ?"

you are always interested in your return on investment.  Even if you're running on Passion, you can only do so much based on that.  If you don't start making any return on investment, your business will be a flop.

 What do you think? Do you have any other characteristics you can think of ?

10 things to remember to keep you motivated !

It's the end of January and maybe you've already ran out of fuel from your New Year's Resolution hype.  If you need an extra boost of motivation, here is my go-to list for getting things done !

10 things to remember to keep you motivated:

  1.  Everybody has 24 hours !

    Just because someone is more successful than you doesn't mean they have more time ! They just know how to use their time more wisely to get sh*t done !

  2. Talking about doing something is not a plan

    “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

  3. Don't be discouraged...great minds think differently!

    “Beware of your critics. Mediocre minds are the greatest enemy of innovation.” – Robert Sofia

  4. Get help when you need it

    "You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” – Nancy D. Solomon

  5. Don't let fear hold you back

    “If you push through that feeling of being scared, that feeling of taking risk, really amazing things can happen.” – Marissa Mayer

  6. Take mistakes as lesson learned

    "Show me a person who never made a mistake, and I will show you a person who never did anything.” – William Rosenberg

  7. Don't turn down opportunities

    1. “If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!” – Richard Branson

  8. Be present.  No more excuses for missing those events you wanted to go to

    "Eighty percent of success is showing up." Woody Allen

  9. Take the risk

    "Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." Anais Nin

  10. and most importantly....Stay positive !

Go out there and do great things!
