Tampa Bay, FL – January 1, 2014 – A new year means new possibilities, new goals and fresh starts. A new year is like a book. We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
During this time, we become reflective and ask some deep and poignant questions about what has been, and what is to come. Some of those introspective questions may be: Are you really an Entrepreneur? Are you an Executive Entrepreneur? Not sure?? Well, find out by asking yourself these few questions:
• What hours do you work?
• Are they the same or similar to the hours you worked at your previous job?
• Do you still work through lunch?
• Are you dressed and in your office by 8 am?
• Do you leave your office when it’s dark outside?
• How many sick days do you take?
Did you know that most entrepreneurs are not aware of the true meaning of the word entrepreneur? What does it mean to you to be an entrepreneur?
According to Wikipedia: Entrepreneur (i/??ntr?pr?’n?r/), is a loanword from French. It is defined as an individual who organizes or operates a business or businesses. Wikipedia also states the influences and entrepreneurial behavior as: The entrepreneur is commonly seen as an innovator — a generator of new ideas and business processes.  Management skills and strong team building abilities are often perceived as essential leadership attributes for successful entrepreneurs.

Have you noticed how happy you are when you are doing what you love? That is the true meaning of being an entrepreneur (doing what you are designed to do). We were all born with certain talents and skills, and when we are engaging them, WE ARE HAPPY. When we are doing other tasks that we are not naturally good at, they feel mundane; they seem to take forever to complete; and….we feel exhausted.
Did you become an entrepreneur to enjoy what you’re doing? How long did it take to find out you don’t have a sales & marketing team, an accounting or product development department, or customer service representatives or anyone to trouble shoot for you? You are told you must become responsible for all of these tasks if you want to run a successful business!
You wake up one day and realize all these hats you are wearing day in and day out, don’t give you any company benefits or paid holidays or vacations. Now what do you do? You don’t want to get another job; you probably are no longer employable.
