What does it mean to be an ‘entrepreneur’?

I am an entrepreneur.

I’m not a rich entrepreneur. You won’t see me driving around in a luxury car, hanging out in my mansion or ‘instagramming’ from some exotic location in the south of France.

What you will see though are original thoughts that may well go against the grain of conservative society. I love to challenge the status quo and come up with different and unique solutions to a range of different problems.

I love to walk around with my eyes and mind wide open while observing the masses of people that appear to be shuffling through life with their heads down – and shaking my head in the process.

Don’t ask me to come and work 9 to 5, or any set hours for that matter, as I know that great ideas for great solutions rarely fit within rigid timeframes.

What I am doing is working things through on my terms, in ways that I believe in, and what I whole heartedly believe to be the right way of going about it.

I’ve worked in too many businesses in the past where I knew things could have been done so much better if only management were more open to different ideas, instead of allowing politics to dictate their direction.

That’s why I jumped into the entrepreneurial world, and this is where I belong. It’s not glamourous. I’m not going to pretend that it is. What it is though is real, true, honest, uncluttered, and very exciting.

Where will things go next week, next month or next year? I don’t really know.

I’ve accepted the fact that many people will never get this, but I know the ones who do are the ones that matter.

To me, that’s what it’s really all about.
