“Entrepreneurism is creativity applied to the field of business.”
This particular quote never leaves my mind. It was stated on the MetroStew blog titled Business Philosophy: Can Entrepreneurism Be Taught? The reason it sticks with me is because I love the arts and believe so much in creativity, that it is genius to relate it to business.
As aspiring online marketers search through the millions of pages on the internet, more than likely they face multiple frustrations. In regards to future business ventures, discouragement, angst, and doubt are all possible emotions felt by prospective entrepreneurs. However, there are also many positive emotions that surround entrepreneurs, because if there wasn’t, they would find themselves in a continual downward spiral.
Entrepreneurs exude confidence, dedication, and devotion when first starting out and maintain that enthusiasm throughout. Even though it can be scary and nerve-racking being in charge of your own business. You have to worry about your investors, keeping profits up, and getting payroll done on time in order to pay your employees. One way to stay positive, and to not go in a downward spiral, is to tell give yourself positive reinforcement. “[R]esearch supports the fact that entrepreneurs are stubbornly optimistic.” In order to do so, tell yourself, “I am going to be the best”, “I am going to be successful”, “If I stutter or fall, I will get back up and try harder each time”, and “I will not fail, I will get to the top and if I need to change anything along the way to achieve that, I will.”
Based on these facts and my opinion, it doesn’t really matter whether or not someone has formal education supporting their endeavors. I believe if you have enough faith and conviction, you can do anything you set your mind too.
