Why I Became An Entrepreneur

Many ask the question “Why did you decide to become an entrepreneur?”   At first I wasn’t sure how to answer that.  Now though when I look back at my experiences, I believe it was all in the making from the start.  Even in school, both high school and college, I never took random classes because they were easy.  Well except for the couple of elective math classes I took in college.  Still, I think that was still molding me to become an entrepreneur.

I don’t have a problem with following instructions from supervisors, I have a problem when supervisors don’t teach and train and rule by threats.  I always strive to be that supervisor that did not rule by threats.  Over the years  I’ve learned a lot about running a business and how to be a leader.  I didn’t become an entrepreneur to boss people around.  I became an entrepreneur to help, teach and train others while providing a service.

Each of my businesses provide at lease one of those factors if not more.  I didn’t become an entrepreneur to boss people around, I did it fill a need, provide a service.  Yes there have been times when I’ve tried some businesses and then thought, this isn’t for me.  However, when I started my current businesses it was meant to be.  I knew right away this was wanted I wanted.  Yes, there have been some rough moments.  There were times when I wondered if I was doing the right thing for all the right reasons.  Sometimes I realized I wasn’t and stopped pursuing that specific avenue.

There’s no doubt that I have challenging moments.  I refuse to allow those moments to define me or what I’m trying to do.  I enjoy what I do and plan to do it full time in the very near future.
