Entrepreneurship Isn’t for Everyone – and That’s OK | “Love ‘n Business” Podcast

Think it would be great to be your own boss? Think again.

Britt and Mick Arnold explore why entrepreneurship isn’t be for everyone in this episode of their “Love ‘n Business” podcast.

And more importantly, why that’s not a bad thing – regardless of what influencers may say.

Highlights include:

  • In this age of technology, the barriers to starting a business as being lower than ever.
  • Working from home and flexible schedules of Covid have given the standard 9 to 5 job a virtual stigma.
  • Social influencers have contributed to the vilifying of traditional employment – and have perhaps given misleading impressions about what it takes to succeed.
  • The reality is, the risk is real and the failure rate for starting a new business is high.
  • Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone – and that’s OK.
  • The possibility to achieve great success within an organization is real – and of value. The key is autonomy and ownership.
  • The ownership mentality.
  • Finding – and creating – unlimited professional growth in a company.
  • Intrapreneurship.
  • Discovering the value you bring to your business – and leveraging it.
  • Defining and presenting your value proposition.
  • Identifying companies that allow for personal growth.
  • The a la carte experience.
  • You can make a good salary working for others – without the expenses (accounting, insurance, rental, etc.).
  • Work/life balance tends to be more present when you work for others rather than yourself.
  • Owner takeaways.
