Entrepreneurship is not for you if one of the following is true for you.
- Career growth means a greater-than-10% salary hike and a more impressive job title
- Life settlement means owning a house, having a beautiful wife (or rich husband) and two smart kids
- Startups are a hot topic during lunch and weekend parties only, but no one does anything to make them a reality.
- You know how to make quick bucks by fooling people, and you think the same tactic can be applied to a startup
- The value (financial) of one month of your life is not more than one month of your salary, in your opinion.
Do you remember the last time you took a risk — something like taking leave for two weeks for vacation without your boss’ approval? Entrepreneurship is about confronting brutal realities of life where you have to take the risk on a daily basis.
- You seek an expert’s help to move forward in an unfamiliar work situation, and are afraid of challenges.
- You don’t try new things because statistics say that the probability of failure is 90%.
- You dream of becoming Steve Jobs but compromise on your ideologies (often because your boss want things another way)
- Last one — you know everything and you don’t like learning from juniors or peers. You only learn from CEOs because that is your primary goal of doing a startup.
