Being your own boss, calling all the shots, hustling to hit your goals… This is the dream for many… to become an entrepreneur.

Running your own business can be incredibly rewarding, exhilarating and full of opportunities. Yet, it can be very very difficult. So difficult in fact, that 75% of startups fail.

So what do we need to become a successful entrepreneur? Can anyone learn to become one?

  • We don’t have to predict the next medium; we just need to properly use the medium we have today. 
  • If you want to be an entrepreneur–don’t listen to a soul. Don’t listen to the positive or negative, listen to your consumer.
