April Team Tip | Develop The Entrepreneurial Mindset

So many of us have the wrong definition of “entrepreneur”. Here’s the one you’re probably most familiar with:

But this doesn’t paint the full picture. In fact, there are actually TWO types of entrepreneurs.

The definition above more accurately describes a macropreneur. These are people like Steve Jobs (Apple Computers), Bill Andreoli (Youngevity), Ray Kroc (McDonald’s), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Sir Richard Branson (Virgin Group), Michael Jordan (multiple enterprises), Jack Welch (GE), and Dr. Joel Wallach.

What I want you to better understand, though, is the category of micropreneurs. Because you just might be one.

Let’s look at the key differences in the macro vs. micro MINDSET:

  • a-winning-mindsetWhile a Macropreneur is FEARLESS, all a micropreneur needs is COURAGE.
  • Macropreneurs are RISK-TAKERS, but micropreneurs are WILLING TO TAKE A RISK, when it’s calculated.
  • Macropreneurs are LOUD VISIONARIES, but micropreneurs have a QUIET DESIRE TO BE THEIR BEST.

Does any of this sound familiar? Because if you possess some courage, if you’re willing to take calculated risks, and if you have a quiet desire to be your best, then you, my friend, are a micropreneur.

You have the heart of an entrepreneur beating inside of you. And that entrepreneurial mindset needs to be fed — just like our bodies need 90 for Life.

So what does it take to possess the Entrepreneurial Mindset?

I’m glad you asked. And even more glad I answered… right here in this Daily Dose.
