Entrepreneur Greg Rollett explains the only way to leave your cubicle behind and become an entrepreneur.
About ten years ago I was working a day job in this cubicle and was wondering how much more I could accomplish out there. I just felt trapped and so I started doing some side hustles but I was still doubling with foot in corporate and foot in entrepreneurship.
Real entrepreneurs don’t learn from a course, they learn from being an entrepreneur. The day that I put in my resignation is the day that my life changed forever. I had to build that parachute on the way down.
His tip? Become an entrepreneur.
There’s no typo there. The only way to learn everything you’re going to need to know to run a successful business is by doing — by committing with everything you have and taking the leap. You can build the parachute as you fall.
Don’t talk about the entrepreneur you want to become or daydream about what it will be like when you have your own business. Start building toward something today.
