Do I Have The Intention To Be An Entrepreneur?

Do I Have The Intention To Be An Entrepreneur?

One of the most controversial questions – not to say that something that sounds silly on surface for that matter – that one can ask an entrepreneur wannabe is, “do you really have the intention to be entrepreneur?” Unfortunately, this question is not going to get a positive reception in a lot of places because it could sound rude to a business aspirant. However, the truth is that intention is a heavily clouded state of emotion and you’ll never know if a lot of them are actually true.

“I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.”
– Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder and CEO

Here is a good example that comes to my mind: a few years back, an automobile forum started the discussion about a specific vehicle that wasn’t available for purchase yet. Many people that ‘seriously wanted to buy one’ never bought one when it was launched. Your intentions to start a new business are as cloudy as this in many situations.

What Is An Entrepreneur Exactly?

An entrepreneur is someone that sees an opportunity and form a company to take advantage of it. There are two factors called:

  • Perceived desirability and
  • Perceived feasibility

That determines the final formation of a business. Perceived desirability and feasibility is not something that one could achieve overnight. Sometimes you may not realize that you have a comprehensive action plan to start and run a business because many things are unclear inside your head.

What happens if you venture into something without true intentions?

Foggy chain of thoughts about professional advancement in life and business ideas can confuse many individuals and make them believe that they have what it takes to be an entrepreneur or at least the intention to learn and be one. However, this assumption is not just enough to start a business because;

  • You will make many mistakes and these mistakes can turn out to be costly
  • You will lose interest because you never had intention to start a business except that you thought you did
  • You will fail, lose money and respect. Worst of all, you will lose time.
  • How do I know if I have the intention to be an entrepreneur?

    There is no straightforward answer to this question: only someone with previous experience in running a business, preferably a mentor with a lot of experience, is the kind of person hat can judge your abilities. However, finding such a person in real life to ask advice is difficult, if not impossible.
