Entrepreneur! (11/5/18)

 

 

That pretty much sums what being an entrepreneur feels like๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

Being an entrepreneur IS a way of life.

To me, it’s like a constant 24/7 hustle.

And the hustle is REAL!

Sincerely, it is most definitely not for everyone!

If you happen to be one of those people that need regularity in your life, a schedule and a paycheck every week, the entrepreneur life is definitely NOT FOR YOUโœ”โœ”โœ”

Yes, that’s the reality of being an entrepreneur, you are ALWAYS working! 

In one way, shape or form.

You don’t really understand that when you start. 

At least I didn’t. 

My first couple of years, I’m sure like other entrepreneurs, I was kind of stumbling along, trying to figure it all out. 

Trying to figure out works and what doesn’t. 

What you want to do vs what you don’t!

And here’s another thing, there is no one to ask?  Since YOU are the BOSS. 

It’s all on you to figure that shit out.๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

And all the self-doubt that comes with it๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

Questions, such as: am I doing it right? 

Should I be doing something else? 

How come I’m not making lots of money?  (LOL, that one comes up often).

Trust me, you will go through many emotions…

LIKE:   you will cry (alot), you will be broke, you will have self-doubt, you will want to give up, you will lose friends and relationships, you will work many hours and not get paid, you will be giving up much of your life for it. 

Then wonder if it’s worth it, HINT:  It is!๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ

What do you get from all this work?

Freedom.

The opportunity to make a living doing something you absolutely love๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

You get to follow your passion.

Do things you never thought possible, and so much more!

In the beginning, I wasn’t even sure it was for me. 

Only by year three (I am now in year six), I decided this was it.  No plan B, no exit strategy, it was all or nothing.

I’m pretty sure that’s how you have to be.  Total commitment. 

Pure desire.  Steel-focused vision.

There is something about having a vision, and waking up everyday to get yourself one step closer to it.

That’s what it’s all about!

 

 FACT: An entrepreneur would rather work 80 hours and make a dollar, than work 40 hours for someone else. 

You really do have to be half mad, and be totally fine with it!๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡

That’s why they say it’s not for everyone!

I talk to so many people who tell me they want to start a business, only they can’t because of ______ fill in the blank. 

Hello, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I first started.

Only, that didn’t stop me.

I knew one thing, I was going to make it work, one way or another.

Fierce determination and daily persistence got me a whole lot further than smarts!

When you have that kind of determination, you are UNSTOPPABLE๐Ÿ›‘๐Ÿ›‘๐Ÿ›‘

 

Like I said, when you are in alignment with your thoughts AND actions, no one can stop you, except you!

You really have to have total faith in what you are doingโ˜โ˜โ˜

An iron-clad decision you make with yourself that you CAN do this. 

Even on the days that you might be doubting yourself!

 

Kermit the Frog๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ

That is most definitely true. 

Everyone, and I mean everyone, will try to talk you out of whatever it is you are trying to do. 

Don’t listen to them!

 

 

Henry Ford got it right. โ˜โ˜โ˜

It’s all comes down to your attitude. 

If you think you can, you will keep thinking of new ways to make it happen. 

And, if you think you can’t, you’ll think of all the reasons why ๐Ÿ™  

Your attitude determines your future!

 

The great thing about being an entrepreneur is you have no boss. 

Also. the bad thing about being an entrepreneur, you have no boss. 

YOU are the boss! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

So if there is a problem, YOU have to solve it. 

And there is no one telling you what has to get done today, you have to decide. 

Have a deadline?

Guess what?  It’s YOUR responsibility. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ™„

Kermit the Frog๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ

Oh, and you are always tired (see my picture), always tired…

Hopefully, you have to have a lot of determination and will-power to succeed. 

You’re going to need it! 

Otherwise, you’ll be sitting on the couch watching Jerry Springer and eating Doritos. 

No one wants to see that ;-(๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

 

My philosophy all the way!

 

I tell people all the time, I am building my empire. 

And I mean it!

Ride or die, my motto!

That’s a wrap!

Iff you are considering the entrepreneur life, I hope you go for it!

Life is too short not to follow your passion <3

Talk soon,

Patricia <3
