We're all entrepreneurs but some of us don't know it
A lot of us are entrepreneurs and we don't even know it, we're business owners and haven't taken a stab at it, and we could be successful but haven't thought about trying something new. If you've ever had a dream of making money from your own business, you're an entrepreneur and can likely build yourself up to success if you do everything right. It doesn't cost a lot of money to start up a website and optimize it to see what type of traffic you can start to bring in. It does cost a lot of money to get something custom coded and have a team optimize it, and that's why people get so confused about working online lol.
An entrepreneur is someone that wants to make money on their own and not work for a boss. Do you hate your boss and want to start your own thing? You're an entrepreneur that just hasn't busted out of his or her shell yet, but it should happen and hopefully sooner rather than later!
In this discussion, I'll be going over a few things to ask yourself and think of if you aren't sure if you're an entrepreneur, and those things are:
Is there out there you know you can fix with a product?
The birth of most entrepreneurs is when they come across a problem and they decide to make something that fixes this problem. Most of the people on the show Shark Tank who get instant deals are the ones who are solving a problem no one ever thought about solving because it could be a little thing. Problem solvers are entrepreneurs in training, mainly because they see the best way of doing something without taking action right away, and that means they can likely get a product or service that fills a void in an industry and it will turn a profit.
Think about it, before there was SEOclerks we would have to post SEO and marketing services on forums and hope they would get accepted. Jordan saw a void in the industry and wanted to bring everyone in one place, now SEOclerks is the best SEO marketplace in the world after just a handful of years in business! Solve a problem and you will likely make money from it.
Do you have little things you do to make something easier?
There are so many things out there that took the easy route to make an action or operation easy but stopped evolving when the sales started to flood in. If you see this as a cash cow, you're right, and that's because you can make something similar and evolve the idea of a different business that stalled out because they got complacent.
If you do something like put a rubber band around your cigarettes so they don't fall out of your shirt pocket when you bend over or put a paper towel down over your coaster when setting a drink on it, you're an entrepreneur and you don't even know it! You can make a cigarette band that can be marketed to people who always drop their packs and you can make a coaster that absorbs condensation so it doesn't get on your table! Little things like these are what turn people from hourly employees into CEOs overnight.
A simple thing can make you a millionaire
Some of the littlest things in the world have made people millions of dollars in sales and profits. I saw a guy making magnetic eyeglasses clip in his garage get $900,000 in funding and then made $5,000,000 over the next few years simply because he solved the simplest problem people have when it comes to putting your glasses in your shirt pocket or in your neckband. The glasses stopped falling out, hundreds of millions of people wear glasses and sunglasses (maybe billions), and it was successful because of low price points and high demand.
Get a prototype, talk to a manufacturer, and get your product made
If you're past the point of thinking "Am I an entrepreneur?" and you know you are but don't know what to do, make sure you have an idea and turn it into a prototype. After that, you'll need to contact manufacturers, if you can't produce it yourself, and see how much they would charge to produce your product. Get your products made, market them just right, and rake in the profits then come back and let me know how successful you've been
Everyone can be an entrepreneur and make money online, but the few who figure out how to find the voids will be the ones making millions. You don't need to reinvent the wheel, you just need to make it work a lot better, and people will gravitate towards you and likely sign up or make a purchase right there on their first visit You'll never know unless you try
