What does it take to be an Entrepreneur?

Being an Entrepreneur is simple, but certainly not easy. There are many obstacles and challenges to building any type of business. So what does it take to be an Entrepreneur? What does it take to not quit when things get tough?

It takes many things. The first thing to BE is someone with Character. Good character with a strong sense of responsibility - now that is building on a solid foundation. Just like building a house - one built on sand will fall when storms and winds hit. But one built on solid ground will stand and be of great value to its inhabitants.

As Entrepreneurs, we invest into developing and growing as human beings - and build that CHARACTER and possess that VALUE to give to people. We are not in business only for the money. Money is a byproduct of who we ARE and what we DO on a daily basis. Money is basically the seed we have to invest into the lives of others - and we want to invest well and invest fully. Quoting Hans Johnson, "When we become a good 'farmer', our seed grows and our crops are very fruitful, yielding 30, 60 and 100 fold returns."
