When you are a successful entrepreneur, what will you have?
– A lot of money
– Doing whatever you want, whenever you like
– Choosing by yourself who you want to work with
– Living on your own
But it’s not easy to become a successful entrepreneur. You have to work hard and it doesn’t always pay well. You have to wake up early, you can not extremely take a rest even when you come back home. You have to pay so much to get success.
So why do you want to be an entrepreneur? Is entrepreneurship right for you?
The answer is not clear. Maybe because you are crazy, or because you love this job, even though it’s always competitive, makes you exhausted most of the time.
So if you are still unsure about your future, try this simple five-question quiz to determine if entrepreneurship is right for you.
Please answer each question on a scale of 1–10 (one being the lowest, ten being the highest):
- How badly do you want to be your own boss and the person who can control the situation?
- How willing are you to get laughed at, criticized, and questioned for your life choices?
- How much responsibility are you willing to take for your life, success, and money?
- How much of your time, money, and energy are you willing to invest in yourself?
- How resilient are you in the face of discouragement, uncertainty, and defeat?
These questions are not about your ability, but about your character, like patience, resilience, stamina. You may not be the best startup with big funding, but if you love your job, you will not give up easily.
