You might well wonder whether entrepreneur simply means “a person who starts a business and is willing to risk loss in order to make money” or whether it carries an additional connotation of far-sightedness and innovation. The answer, perhaps unsatisfyingly, is that it can go in either direction.
Entrepreneur has been used in English to refer to a kind of businessman since at least the middle of the 18th century, when it appeared in translation of the King of Prussia’s instructions for his generals (“. . . if the country happens not to abound in forage, you must agree with some Entrepreneur for the quantity required.”). During the 19th century, it was also used of a go-between or a person who undertakes any kind of activity (as opposed to just a business).
By the early 20th century entrepreneur appears to have taken on the connotation of go-getter when applied to an independent business owner, a quality that may also be found in the phrase entrepreneurial spirit, which began being used at about the same time.
These are some habits that are must haves for an Entrepreneur.
- Daily Self-Improvement — Daily Growth can be accomplished through daily reading for information, attending night school, attending a conference, webinar, or listening to a podcast. Daily progress may also include the acquisition of a new skill or the refinement of an old one.
- Daily Habit-Goals – These are tasks that you repeat on a daily basis in order to accomplish a Monthly Goal.
- Taking Action — Put an end to your over-analysis and over-thinking and take prompt action. What you don’t know, you’ll discover through your blunders. You will never be able to know everything, so take a leap of faith and learn as you go.
- Finding Apostolic Support – Every successful entrepreneur seeks for Apostolic Support for their cause. These are people who believe in you and your aspirations. Establish an aim of locating a single apostle. Others will join you as you grow in achievement. The more apostles you surround yourself with, the easier it will be to pull the cart and the more quickly you will achieve success.
- Don’t Follow the Herd – Entrepreneurs who succeed are leaders. They disperse from other herds and establish their own. At first, they are all alone. However, as they learn what to do and what not to do, they finally achieve success and others take note, becoming followers, consumers, and/or clients. Millionaires are in the hundreds, deca-millionaires number in the thousands, and billionaires number in the millions.
- Establish Valuable Relationships with Other Successful Individuals – Successful entrepreneurs surround themselves with other industry leaders. They share information, key contacts, and serve as mentors for one another.
