Entrepreneurship as Your Passion

Entrepreneurship has been my passion for as long as I can commit to memory to learning how to type, and that started in 5th grade! Strangely enough, I wasn't raised around lots of business owners growing up in New Jersey nor surrounded by many business-minded individuals.

Initially, my passion was expressed through the notion that extra money can be made while working a corporate job. There are several reasons why people become entrepreneurs: to be able to save up for their children's college education, pay off bills, buy a house, to have the flexibility of setting their own hours, and more importantly to become the boss of their destiny.

Entrepreneurship as your passion truly opens doors to numerous areas of interests. In my mind, being an entrepreneur is like flying a plane without a destination; meaning, it's endless in terms of what you accomplish, how successful you become, and what truly makes you blissful on a day-to-day basis.

Whether your passion is crocheting sweaters, selling ice cream from a truck to running a corporation, it's all about feeling great at what you're doing and reaching your personal success. Your passion is something that you feel comfortable, secure and knowledgeable with and it's the excitement that keeps you working a 50-hour workweek with a smile on your face. It's the fulfillment of dodging all the office drama that comes with working the traditional 9 to 5.

If you've had thoughts of becoming your own boss, but nervous with taking steps towards entrepreneurship, research your passion first by logging on the Internet or go directly to your local library or Barnes & Noble. Don't quit your day job just yet; however, never allow the unknown to intimidate your dreams. Hire a coach to guide you through the process. It's worth your time, money and energy.
