Entrepreneurship is Different for Each of Us

Entrepreneurship isn’t a formula. It’s not a checklist written by the culture that you, the business professional, must follow. It has less to do with a prescribed procedure or skill than it has to do with a mindset. It has more in common with muscle than your current ability, because you can always exercise the muscle to gain the abilities you so desire.

It’s a process from “start to finish.” It’s asking yourself, “What do I want to experience next?” then pursuing it until it’s completed. And the experience leads to a reward. You end with something you didn’t have at the start. It could be monetary, or the reward could be a simple token of wisdom like, “That venture performed in that way is not profitable.” Either way, you’re rewarded.

And it looks completely different for each entrepreneur. You, the designer, have different muscles to flex than the code developer. You are detailing the intangibles.

So what does entrepreneurship look like to you? And how will you exercise it?
