    Based on a survey what I did, here are the primary reasons why people choose to be an entrepreneur 1. I became an entrepreneur because of a life crisis 2. Did not want to take orders from someone, so became an entrepreneur 3. Became entrepreneur because of passion 4. To make profits and when I dug deeper I realized these guys did not even know the difference between being an entrepreneur and businessmen and self-employed.... because if you are speaking of being lonely you are primarily in the space of self-employed and not entrepreneurship. Because entrepreneurship starts with a bigger WHY and is inclusive of end-users from the very first day of inception, there is no question of feeling lonely If someone is sitting in a dark-corner coding what he thinks without the inclusion of the people he is trying to resolve the problem of, he is just a person having a passion for coding in the dark corner Entrepreneurship is about creating a new market, a new-eco system, not struggling to get a bite in the existing, so purpose, pain point, passion, and people matter And the reason why few people feel lonely here is that they are not honest with themselves nor with their eco-system.

    I agree with this. Also I believe entrepreneurship has become so mainstream, entrepreneurs can profit off of entrepreneurship itself. Everyone is given a false impression that you will make it as an entrepreneur going to programs..programs for what? You’re stuck in training. Have you actually started selling something yet or have you been paying for courses. This is just like college except what you pay for now is going to someone’s business and not the government. If there’s anything I learned from school, don’t have people tell you to do your homework. You have to do your own research or else you’ll be paying someone to read books for you..something a majority of us can’t afford but is really convenient for the already rich. But of course you aren’t already rich if you’re looking into entrepreneurship.

    I know you must get this a lot Mark, but seriously this is one of the best videos about entrepreneurship on the web, I keep watching it over and over again when in need of answers and each time a get a different message, it never gets old. It takes a lot of self awareness to realize that it's a complicated journey and not only realize, but also embracing it. Congratulations on this excellent Talk, a lot of people talk about the DOs and DON'Ts but not everyone talks about what you actually have to go through and the feels. The first step for solving a problem, is recognizing there is one..

    Hey everyone, I’m currently trying to find out how one could make the lives of entrepreneurs a lot easier ;) Which is why I have two very simple questions: 1. As an entrepreneur, what are the 2 biggest issues you’re dealing with when it comes to building a social life or social circle besides the business? 2. Regarding your social circle, what would you wish for more than anything else? Thanks so much in advance - looking forward to reading your answers!

    I've worked in varied places. What I advise to everyone is simple. DO NOT go into a business stream if you don't understand, some of you might be okay and understand that you need to listen to others. I have quit two jobs after trying to explain the the owner that what they are doing is committing fraud. Listen to staff who you hired for that purpose and don't assume you know everything.

    It is easier to hire people when government gets out of the way. You are from the UK, known for it's nanny state regulations. In the US it is similar, people are afraid to hire people because of all the red tape and potential penalties (health insurance, lawsuits, taxes). I lived in Asia for a while, no shortage of entrepreneurship there, and also not a lot of loneliness either. It is easy to set up shop in the market place and engage with others. It is easy to hire people. It could be like that here too.

    I am an entrepreneur. I run a somewhat unsuccessful music business (I can't live off it) and also (with a biz partner) a semi-successful Retail Store in Los Angeles that I will be able to live off if I stick to the plan another 2-3 years. I don't need to be recognized, I don't post anything regarding success or being in biz for myself on social media. I can't yet afford to take any fancy vacations or trips. I can't afford new clothes. I'm not rich and I may never be, but I am self sufficient, I have vastly more confidence than most as a result of what I've done, and I have learned a different way of looking at the world than most. Anytime I see something new or unusual, my mind immediately asks "Is there a way I can utilize that to make money?" And I am often willing to try things that most others think are sure to fail. I have learned enough valuable lessons in under ten years that I could probably write a book on how to launch a business. Its the hardest thing I've ever done, the most work, the most stress, and the most difficulty...and I would rather spend my life doing this than ever working for anybody else again.

    He has a good point. There is a barbecue restaurant in town that started out as a food truck. They had some good recipes. They were going to barbecue contests with this food truck and the biggest problem they had when they were open was having enough food to sell. They would open around 11 and some days they were closed by 1 or 2 because everything they had been able to cook had been sold. With the truck they were just to limited in space for storage and cooking. Now that they have opened up in the building they don't run out to the point of having to close early even if they have to stop selling some dishes for an hour or so while more is cooked. It is a perfect example of a business that started small and grew.

    I’ve been an entrepreneur since 2016. It was so lonely..... the second year. I didn’t realize it the first year because I was too busy with the initial start up. I actually took a job as an overnight pet sitter the second year bc I wasn’t sleeping anyway and I loved being around animals. It definitely wasn’t for the money lol Now, I have my support group; two CLOSE friends who I meet up with regularly and we feed off each other’s ideas and refresh and encourage each other with ideas, possibilities and comradery .
