Become an entrepreneur
Have you reached mid-life and just realized you are missing something, especially about the way you spend your time working for others. For most of us this realization hits Mid-life! You are no longer happy with our job, you feel less rewarded. Many a times you think you want to be your own boss and so on and so forth. For many quitting a job to start business is far too scary than risky. Can you really make your dream – a reality?
The answer is YES YOU CAN! Here’s how you can get started.
Define your purpose
There are two basic types of entrepreneurs; one is the ‘leader’ and the other the ‘non follower’. The difference is simple; the leaders are optimistic individuals who lead business with shear optimism, doing what they believe in. The non followers are trend setters who define new solutions and believe in improvisation.
The first step to be an entrepreneur is to have an understanding of your type and quickly get over the dilemma of what kind of business you need to be in; it takes longer than you think to figure out your type than starting a business.
Clarity is the keyword here. Any individual who wants to venture into business must have a great deal of clarity.
Have a better understanding
Many think they have to be an expert in everything and do everything themselves to succeed in business. The truth is most successful people find other people to help them achieve their goals.
Having a good network of people who can help and advise you is important. If you have clarity of what you’re trying to do, many people are happy to help you.
The key is don’t wait too long to get or ask for help.
Away from a corporate mindset
Working for corporations can set you up in a habit of a routine mindset. Take some time to ask yourself, the reasons you are in business and create a vision statement.
It’s about asking yourself some of the bigger questions in life and then defining what your business is going to look like? What will your clients look like? How will you be spending your time?
Realizing you don’t necessarily need to handle everything as you did before is the solution.
It’s better late than never
Living your most passionate dream is the true essence of living your life. Whatever may be your dream; if your dream is to be an entrepreneur then it’s easier than ever before. Many of us wait for the right time without knowing when the right time is.
The key is to apply time to your advantage by having a basic understanding of a step by step approach; one step at a time.

a) Existing business to associate or partner
Based on your business goals identify an existing business to associate or partner with. Remember the key is to get started. Have a pre defined exit plan to get started in business.
Let me explain this better. All entrepreneurs and business owners need enterprising resources and support. Based on your area of interest and appetite to take risk, chose the business you would like to associate with.
