Por qué no deberías comenzar tu propio negocio o emprendimiento

del blog sturtup spark, espero que les sea útil.

I wanted to share with you what I think it takes to be an entrepreneur.

* You need to understand being an entrepreneur does not equal a steady paycheck at first (or in some cases ever). I’ve interviewed tons of successfuldo you have what it takes people who have created major companies. All have on thing in common… they had a bog dream, but realized it would be tough at first. Some actually lived in their offices, eating ramen noodles and barely scraping by. Others started their businesses while working for someone else. In any case, it ‘ain’t’ easy or fast.
* You need to be a risk taker. Most businesses fail within the first 5 years. You need to know that going in. And you need to know how you are going to deal with it, learn from it and move on.
* It’s lonely. Being an entrepreneur won’t help your social status. Let’s face it, working in a bigger businesses than you own affords you a social outlet. You may hate your co-workers, but working in a team setting has some benefits (even if it gives you someone to complain about).
* You need to be extremely organized. Ok, not extremely, but when you are you’re own boss (especially if you are working from home, which many do), you’ll find a lot to distract you from the task at hand. How you handle those distractions can make or break your business.
