If you’re ready to take the next step and start working on your entrepreneurial mindset, here are some practical tips to help you get there:
- Surround yourself with entrepreneurial people: They say we are the average of the 5 people we spend time with the most, so make sure you are surrounded by people who inspire and challenge you.
- Lee: Reading is like having conversations with people from whom you can learn a lot of interesting things.
- I also recommend “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferris; “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki; “Think and Get Rich” by Napoleon Hill; and “Passion for Entrepreneurship” by Andy Freire. They are very good readings to break paradigms and change the way you think and work. If you know of another interesting book on the subject, feel free to recommend it in the comments.
- Go out and sell: A great way to develop various skills of great importance to entrepreneurs is to start selling. Suppose you have a product of your own, great. If you don’t have it, find someone else’s product and make an agreement to receive a commission for each sale. The better your sales skills, the more business you will be.
- Take action: The best entrepreneurship course you can take is to take your idea and start executing it. It doesn’t matter how many books you read or how many courses you take; if you don’t take action, you are wasting valuable time. No matter how much advice they give you, there are lessons that you will only learn through falls and blows.
Even if you start a business, there may still be paradigms in your head that prevent you from becoming a successful entrepreneur you want to be. It is important that you work on developing an entrepreneurial mindset that allows you to successfully meet the challenges posed by the business world.
On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with having a job; the wrong thing is depending on it and developing a mentality of conformity that prevents us from reinventing ourselves and constantly growing. Remember: Look for clients, not bosses. Even as an employee, you can build an entrepreneurial mindset and add greater value to the companies you work with.
