I have a confession to make. I might have spend an entire afternoon online stalking successful, young entrepreneurs around the world, feeling incredible jealousy, but at the same time just trying to pick up as much useful information as possible. After all, I think it’s about time I became rich.
In the particular afternoon, I must have read at least thirty interviews and articles on young entrepreneurs. Having read that many, a pattern started to appear before my eyes, and here it is - an average young entrepreneur’s path to success.
First of all, contrary to what I have previously believed, almost none of these entrepreneurs were some kind of crazy geniuses. The majority of them had taken classes, got their education and even picked up vocational skills before actually starting. They’d attended conferences and taken part in different trainings before they felt ready to begin. Even then, it took a few years to actually start their business. There is brainstorming, planning and much more that goes into just starting. And when you have all that ready, you have to think of a way to get funds, which just might be the biggest problem young entrepreneurs face. However, the funds are not a big enough problem to stop these impressive people. Most of their businesses have actually been started to create new opportunities in their communities. And they have succeeded. You might, too!
This is to serve as encouragement to you. Work on yourself, broaden your knowledge, and if they could do it, why couldn’t you?
P.S. If you go reading their stories, be prepared that it could get a tad depressing when you see that people knew they wanted to be an entrepreneur at age 12 and were a success by age 17, meanwhile you greatest worry was if Britney was going to be okay.
