The Ambitious Entrepreneur


  1. 1.
    a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.

    Entrepreneurs are driven by boundless ambition and "an elemental life force".
    You do not need to give up the day job, at least not initially; start by working on your business in the evenings.
    Age need not be a barrier either. “Colonel” Sanders was 65 and broke, when he founded Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    A good entrepreneur is driven to make something of themselves. One knows what he or she wants, and sets a course to get it. One's motivation to achieve something can sometimes be overwhelming, and the urge to establish themselves can be quite consuming. An entrepreneur's ambition is often the key ingredient that gets one off of their chair and puts one into action, turning one's daydreams into reality.

    When problems do arise, you can count on creativity to bail you out. Creativity is probably what led you to envision your company in the first place, and it'll be creativity that will help you realize the possible solutions to any hitches that might come your way. Successful entrepreneurs find inspiration throughout the entire process, and often discover ways to turn roadblocks into opportunities.

    Entrepreneurs have the ability to withstand the troubles that come with starting a business. Beginning a new business is an immensely difficult task, and as an entrepreneur, you'll have to stick through the storms and stress if you want your venture to be a success.
