If you are an entrepreneur start feeling good about your place in the universe because you are a superhero. Entrepreneurs provide jobs, opportunities and make the world a better place.
I was speaking with a friend today about a business she wants to start. As of today, the business has no sales, no employees and no debt. She was feeling a little doubtful about her ability to run the business. Of course, she thought that running the business was a Herculean task. She should, it because it is. At the same time, if you can never forget that if your mind can conceive it and your heart can believe it, you can achieve it. If you have it in your heart and mind that you can be an entrepreneur, stand up straight, straighten your imaginary superhero cape and recognize the superhero inside you.
Anyone who wants to be one can be an entrepreneur. It doesn’t matter if you are a solopreneur or you run a huge business. No matter what kind of entrepreneur you are, you are making the world better and contributing to the economy in your own way. Never look at your business and say it is “just a small business.” When you refer to your business talk about it like the great, fantastic awe-inspiring thing you know it is. When you talk about your business like it is a thing to be admired and respected, you will encourage others to see and refer to your business in the same way.
Entrepreneurs provide jobs, contribute to the economy and make it possible for others to do the same. Think about it this way. Let’s start with one small entrepreneur who hires her first employee. That employee needs lunch each day. This means she must shop for a meal and things to carry the meal home in. In addition, she has to travel to get to the job. This means she must pay for local mass transit or drive her own vehicle. If she uses mass transit that helps guarantee a job for those driving the mass transit vehicle. If she drives her own car she must buy gas, keep her tires up and pay to maintain her car. In all these ways, this one entrepreneur and her one employee are contributing a lot to the economy. It’s called being a superhero.
Now stand up tall and proud and say it with me, “I am Janeane Davis and I am an entrepreneur, that means I am a superhero!
It is terrific to learn that life will get better even though it may take…
