“How can I be an entrepreneur?” (11.15.18)

 
When you look into the mirror, Patricia Bokowski, do you look for what you love most? 
 
Do you look for me? 
 
Do you smile? 
 
Did you just ask, “Is there any other reason to look into a mirror?”

What is the entrepreneur lifestyle?

Lets see.

Being an entrepreneur is NOT a job, it’s a way of life!

It is a constant 24/7 hustle.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

And the hustle is REAL!

It is most definitely not for everyone!

If you happen to be one of those people that need regularity in your life.

A regular schedule.

A weekly paycheck every week.

The entrepreneur life is definitely NOT FOR YOUβœ”βœ”βœ”

Yes, that’s the reality of being an entrepreneur.

You are ALWAYS working! 

For me, even going to the gym is for work.

In one way, shape or form, just about everything I do has something to do with business!

The thing is, you don’t really understand that part when you start.

At least I didn’t. 

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I first started.

NONEπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Those first couple of years, I basically stumbled around.

I networked a lot.

Got my name out there.

Went to a whole bunch of seminars, classes, meetings, you name it!

Anything to help me grow my business. 

Trying to figure out works and what doesn’t. πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

What you want to do vs what you don’t!

After all, it is YOUR business.

So, you really only want to do the things that work AND that you like to do!

Here’s a thing you don’t really think about when you start a business.

Never is no boss.

Since YOU are the BOSS. 

That sounds awesome on paper.

Until you have a problem(s) that you don’t know how to fix?

No Help Desk to call.

No one to take the ball and roll with it because you don’t know how to roll the ball you got?

It’s really a whole new ball game having your own business.

And you don’t really get it until you are up to your knees in it!

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to speak with other entrepreneurs.

And one thing we all agree on, you go through many emotions!

Man.

LIKE:   you will cry (alot),

You will be broke,

You will have self-doubt,.

You will want to give up. Don’t!!!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

You will lose friends and relationships.

Yes, that’s something no one talks about, but totally true!

You will work many hours and not get paid one penny.

You will be giving up much of your time and energy for it. 

Then wonder if it’s worth it?

HINT:  It is!

So what’s the payoff of all this work?

No, it’s not money.πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

It’s FREEDOM.πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰

The opportunity to make a living doing something you absolutely love is absolutely worth it!

To have the opportunity to follow your passion.

Do things you never thought possible, and so much more!

In the beginning, I wasn’t even sure it was for me. 

Those first few years were quite rocky. Stop waiting for Friday! (8.15.2020)

Only, I had no plan B, no exit strategy, it was all or nothing.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That’s how you have to be. πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

100% total commitment. 

Pure desire. 

Steel-focused vision.

That’s what it’s all about!

 

 FACT: An entrepreneur would rather work 80 hours and make a dollar, than work 40 hours for someone else. 

You really do have to be half mad, and be totally fine with it!

As I said, it is NOT for everyone!

 

I talk to so many people who tell me they want to start a business,

Only they can’t because of ______ fill in the blank. 

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I first started.

Only, that didn’t stop me.

I knew one thing, I was going to make it work, one way or another.

Fierce determination and daily persistence got me a whole lot further than smarts!

When you have that kind of determination, you are UNSTOPPABLEπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

 

No one can stop you, except you!

You really have to have total faith in what you are doing!

An iron-clad decision you make with yourself that you CAN do this. 

Even on the days that you are doubting yourself!

That is most definitely true. 

Everyone, and I mean everyone, will try to talk you out of whatever it is you are trying to do. 

Don’t listen to them!

 

 

Henry Ford got it right. ☝☝☝

It’s all comes down to your attitude. 

If you think you can, you will keep thinking of new ways to make it happen. 

And, if you think you can’t, you’ll think of all the reasons why πŸ™  

Your attitude determines your future!

Here’s what you need!

And it doesn’t cost a cent.

You need determination, will-power and enthusiasm.

If you have those three things, you can make anything happen. 

Otherwise, you’ll be sitting on the couch watching Jerry Springer and eating Doritos. 

And no one wants to see that.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

 

I tell everybody, I’m going to be working on this until the day I die.

No retirement.

No giving up.

Nope, this is it.

I will just thinking of new ways to market, improve and better my business.

Well, actually, I’m past the building a business stage.

I am well onto building my empire!

I’ve come this far and put in this much work, so that’s where I’m heading!

I tell people all the time, I am building my empire. 

And I mean it!

Ride or die, my motto!
