Either your an Entrepreneur or you aren't. the only way to know if it's in your DNA or not is to give it a try and see if you love it and if it works more often than not. I love it just as much as food, cooking and education.

Brian Tracy says that only about 1% of people have the ability to really take risks, real entrepreneurial risks. That's about 1.2 million Filipinos. The other 99% can work on or for a business once it's established. Only 1% have the ability to make those entrepreneurial breakthroughs that create 99% of those jobs.

  1. You love, love, love creating new things   - Airplane, iPhone, Starbucks, AirB&B, Uber, PayPal, Google, purification water tablets, self cleaning toilets - i made that one up ;) - if you like inventing new things, REAL innovation, not the innovation people through around just because they created a new product with an extra ingredient in it, then my friend, you are 20% an entrepreneur.
  2. You're obsessed with changing the world   - for most entrepreneurs I know or have read about, it aint just about the money. It's about making the world more awesome. If you make your money illegally, your a thief. If you can make your money doing something that does good to this world. That! Is a true sign of an awesome entrepreneur.
  3. You can handle failure   - When close to dying, it has been studied that most old people regret not taking risks. When asked why they answered because they were afraid of failure. Success is the tree of a lot of failed seeds. Fail fast, fail often, fail forward. Those who have never failed big time probably have not achieved anything of note either.
  4. You have an insatiable appetite for learning   - you surround yourself with smarter and better people, you go through books like it was an addictive and illegal substance. Entrepreneurs love to learn because not just because they have to, but because they love to.
  5. You work hard and play hard   - well, thats what they say... :)

I love this topic. It's how I got started. I was 21 and broke when i started my first business. I had failed in about 4 different business ideas in 3 years. My fourth idea was the one that worked. Today, that forth idea turned out to be one of the largest and most respected culinary institutions in the country ( www.globalacademyph.com) . I have since opened, closed and sold about 5 businesses since then. Lost some and made some and am at the point in my life when passive income is at it's strongest. Here is what i learned:

JUST GET STARTED - Just get started already. I'm not syang quit your job. Do it on the side. Start small, profit right away, do not scale too fast, instead focus on growing the profit. It is better to have a small business that makes more profit with less effort than to have a big business that gets you on the spotlight but earns so little.

DO NOT MIND THE NAY SAYERS - People will always doubt the entrepreneur. Naturally you are making something unique. Do not argue with them, listen to them, they also have wisdom to give. Take it with a grain of salt. Use the information you think leads to higher productivity, toss out the garbage.

REALIZE YOUR WORTH - So you don have money, that's cool, it forces you to be more creative. You can raise equity by being the proponent of business idea. You can raise it further by assuming and quantifying the risk on your time, current job / salary displacement and even reputation. You can defer a portion of an agreed salarty to buy you more shares. You can also pay back your shares through paying for them with dividends should you get any.

THERE IS ALWAYS FUNDING OUT THERE - Remember, ideas and people who try to make it work are WORTH something. People with money in the bank only earn 0.25% interest a year, bonds give about 3.5 - 5%. If investors are willing to take a risk and you return more than that, dude that's awesome. learn to chill.

DO NOT BE GREEDY - For heaven's sake don't try to own every business idea 100%, while it is ideal, you'll have a hard time doing anything without partners. Just make sure you get the right partners. Some can screw you over. Others can demotivate you by not being supportive. Get well intentioned people. This is an art in itself.

Goodluck! for questions, comments and suggestions you can reach me at integra.sch@gmail.com
