An entrepreneur is a businessman who manages the risk-reward equation of business very well. Becoming an entrepreneur is not everyone’s cup of tea especially for a middle-class person, because the mindset of middle-class people is different. They see the world from a different angle, they study hard, get a good job & remain happy with a safe and secure job. They don’t want to take any chance, they just want to be a prisoner of visiting card and the logo on it.
For all these people I would like to say: “Please imagine your future if you have joined any company as a manager in the corporate sector. Five years down the line you will be senior product manager if you are too good in 8 years you will become marketing manager …In 25 years you might become CEO somewhere.
Ask yourself: – “Is this what I want in life?”
If your answer is no & If you don’t want to sign any complex agreement to become a prisoner of 9 to 5 jobs.
