Questions To Ask To See If You Are In The Wrong Business
These words have a certain magical energy to them. They give every solopreneur, looking to hang out a shingle on the Internet, a sense of being on the same level as a Bill Gates, or a Donald Trump, or a Larry Ellison. The vision of a future business maven who creates an empire and makes a mark in the world.
What’s nice about this dream is that it has a fair chance of coming true… for anyone. Yes, even you and me!
That’s why many call the Internet a “great leveler” that flattens the playing field and gives you a fair shot at massive success.
Still, building a business can be hard work – if you let it.
There’s a way you can take most of the pain and tears, frustration and anxiety, struggle and suffering out of it. And that’s by finding the work you love.
When you are engaged in doing what you like and enjoy, it no longer feels like work. It’s like having fun all day long. Most entrepreneurs who have made it big started out with such a fun idea they were wholeheartedly engaged in, they were able to sustain the enthusiasm and excitement for long enough to cash out – and touch the world.
Facebook started out as a playful coding effort in a college dorm room, seeking to build a network for students to interact online. Google was the brainchild of two nerdy engineers obsessed with refining and perfecting search algorithms, and bent on delivering a better search experience than what they could find already. Amazon.com started out as a creative geek’s concept of creating an inventory and catalog of books on a scale that was simply impossible in a physical offline store.
That these online giants have morphed into something far bigger than their origins might have suggested is in itself proof that the concepts on which they were built are valid and valuable. But more to the point, they are proof that the passions of their founders were deep-rooted and powerful enough to last through phases of extra-ordinary growth, strong enough to scale and adapt to the altered vision of their dreams, and continue to soar ever higher and reach new peaks.
That’s only possible when you love the work you do.
