I want to talk about entrepreneurship today and how crazy we entrepreneurs are. Entrepreneurs are a bread of their own. Strange, weird do things normal people don’t want to do and wouldn’t have the heart to follow through with.
I have a friend called Sticky, now obviously this isn’t his real name this has been his nick name since we were kids. Sticky is actually dating my cousin and has 2 children with her and about a month or so before Christmas he was telling me how much he hates his job. He works nights in a factory on a press machine pressing car panels for new cars.
I actually picture Eminem in the film 8 Mile when I think about Sticky at work because all he does is stand at a machine all night pushing a button pressing door panels into shape and takes the panel and places it on a pallet. Just like they do in 8 Mile.

Anyway before Christmas he was telling me he hates his job, he works all night and is in bed all day. He used to have a job as a landscape gardener and was telling me how he wants to start a business on his own doing this.
His father has a pickup he could use and all the tools to carry out the work but still he works his dead end job that he hates, moaning and whinging about his life. I even told him I would help him out with his marketing.
What Is An Entrepreneur?
There are two types of people in the world entrepreneurs and employees. Entrepreneurs go above and beyond we take risks, we work our ass off to get results and when we don’t get the results we first desire we keep on going no matter what and work harder.
I was in a safe and secure job with all the benefits the company offered and one dinner time I got up and walked out. I never returned to that job instead I perused a life of an entrepreneur and it hasn’t been easy.
I’ve had my struggles and still have struggles but I soldier on. I spend most of my day in my home office playing with capture pages, writing up emails, listening, reading and watching people more advanced than me, that have the results I desire in my business.
We surround ourselves with successful people, we learn, we carry on learning and we learn more because we are passionate and hungry for something better, something different.
We are the odd bods of society that bring new ideas and change the world.
I have to share my favourite quote by the late Steve Jobs
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

If you are an entrepreneur, you are unique and different so don’t ever let anyone steal your dreams.
The only people out there that try to steal your dreams are the ones that don’t have dreams of there own.
Keep being awesome
