Besides a salary job, Entrepreneurship is another way of getting employed. In fact it’s confirmed the best way of being employed, all around the world; it is the easiest way of becoming rich/wealthy and several employment creation.  

It is said that you can never be rich working for someone or an organization. This saying is true to a large extent, due to what entrepreneurship has to offer.

Becoming an entrepreneur means becoming your own boss. You take full charge of a business venture.

Of a truth, entrepreneurship is not for ‘boys’. It isn’t necessarily for everyone, but specifically for those who really do know what to do with it. It’s for those who dare: Those who are ready to take the bull by the horn.

Having more than enough knowledge about entrepreneurship is just a tip off the ice berg. If it were to be just being knowledgeable, professors would have been the most successful in life.

You may be very knowledgeable about entrepreneurship, but being successful in it is what really matters. Success in entrepreneurship is beyond knowledge.

Don’t get forced into it; make up your mind. One of the major things you’ll face at the beginning is loneliness- where no one seems to see what you’re seeing; it can be traumatic.   Perseverance is the key word in entrepreneurship.

Wishing you all the best!
