It takes a unique person to have the correct mindset to be a true entrepreneur. There is a big difference between being an entrepreneur and being self employed. Over 70% of small business owners today are nothing more then self employed meaning they work for themselves but could not step away from their business and have it continue to run efficiently and effectively. A true entrepreneur mindset is letting go of your created business and putting it in others capable hands allow you to step away from your company and still have it run as if you where there every day.
Now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with people that completely run their own business and go there every single day to help run the company. In fact it’s people like that that create small businesses that fuel America and help build it better and stronger every day.
