Becoming an entrepreneur in an industry you are passionate about.

Updated: Nov 4, 2020

For many years I felt like I was just surviving, kind of just getting by but not living a life I was passionate about.

I felt like I was just watching others live life, but because of money I couldn't do the things I wanted to do. If you are reading this and you feel like that describes you, send me a message, I can now tell you how to live a life you will be passionate about without money.

(note I still struggle with finances, but you don't have to be rich you just have to figure out what you are passionate about)

Now days in this digital world we live in we often get a glimpse into how others live, also we hear about things a lot more quickly much more often than ever before, Often its a lot of bad things because bad things make for good news, well not good news but are good for the news uhh well you know what I mean.

Now days we hear stories about something that happened in a little tiny town in the middle of nowhere that we probably never would have heard about even 20 years ago,

it makes you wonder sometimes are certain things happening more often or are we just hearing about things more often. We will file that in the Things that make you go hmmm category, and go back to the entrepreneurial story, in the digital age we live in it's easy to get depressed there is lots of bad news (I've turned the news off) and besides the bad news often when looking on social media sites we see people that seem to be living the perfect life, they are going all the places we wish to go, they have all the things we wish we had and live this awesome lifestyle, everyone has the perfect partner and it goes on and on. we can spend hours and hours scrolling aimlessly and just reading stories.

But this digital age we live in can also be used for positive things, once you get past meaningless scrolling, and past drooling over the pictures of everyone's perfect wife and life, and after you stop watching the news and purposely stop reading negative things. You will find that the internet, social media, and especially YouTube, can be very educational, in fact so much so that people are starting to question if it's worth it to go to college because we can learn so much so fast with the tool in our hand.

If you are very deliberate in what you are looking for, and spend your time deliberately learning a specific thing you can learn darn near anything now between Google and YouTube. anything from auto repair to video editing to whatever else you can imagine, including things that you had to go to college for just a few short years ago.

Personally I started studying entrepreneurs, guru's and just all around successful people and what I've learned has been a little bit shocking, and very eye opening, they all say a lot of the same things over and over. (fundamentals) like, work ethic, get role models, get mentors.

Believe, you must believe in yourself and believe that you are capable.

Steve jobs says

"Life is made up of people no smarter than you, you can change it, you can influence it. once you learn that you will never be the same again, you are capable of more than you think."

  • The ones that did something big are the ones that just put themselves out there and go for it

  • if you want to make a million dollars solve a million dollar problem.

  • let it be known what you are working on and work on it everyday.

  • make plans

  • set goals

  • make a morning routine

  • learn what gives you energy, and what makes you feel more confident.


I've also learned that when it comes to business these are the 5 most important factors in order:

1. Timing

2. Team

3. Idea

4. Business model

5. Funding

And that one of the biggest things holding most people back from success is fear of judgement.

Relationships come into play a lot, and are far more important than I ever realized. I'm sure you have heard the saying "it's not what you know but who you know".

This falls along those lines, a lot of successful people say to start a mastermind group. which is a small group usually 2-5 people that meet up once or twice per week and discuss ideas, plans, goals, do brainstorming and hold each other accountable, help each other encourage each other and share contacts and sometimes resources.
