An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates a business, and is willing to risk a loss to create the financial independence that they strive to achieve. They will take on greater than normal financial risks to build their business. 

They want to create success for themselves and for others. They fill a need in the community and create value for their customers in an innovative way. 

Entrepreneurship does not require a formal degree or specific professional requirements, but it takes lots of knowledge and passion for achieving your goals.

The entrepreneur's life can be one of risk and uncertainty. Successful business ventures take more than just an idea. They also require the drive to see projects through despite obstacles like rejection or failure when things do not go as planned, making it perfect for people who have persistence and a will-not-quit attitude. 

A successful entrepreneur knows that they must balance the needs of their business, the needs of their customer, and their own needs.

Balancing these three different entities requires a special set of leadership skills.

What does it take to be an entrepreneur? From my experience, being an entrepreneur is all about being creative and fearless. You have to be able to think outside the box and ready to take risks. And most importantly, you need to have a lot of self-confidence.

For women, the journey to becoming an entrepreneur may not always be a smooth one. It can be challenging to find the right resources, information, and support that you need along the way. With determination, persistence, and the right mindset, anything is possible. 

The right mindset can take you far. How you think about yourself and your abilities is one of the essential factors in determining how successful you will be as an entrepreneur.

If you believe in yourself and have a positive outlook, you will likely achieve your goals. Entrepreneurs have the mindset to think without a doubt that it is possible to improve their life, achieve their goals and live life on their terms.

When I started learning about being a real estate investor and a landlord, I didn’t have money or a job. I didn’t have a college education, and I lacked formal business skills. Everything I knew was self-taught. I like to say I was street smart instead of book smart.

“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”
- Jim Rohn

There were many ups and downs along the way that brought me to where I am today. However, what I did have was a natural entrepreneurial spirit. I had passion, drive, and persistence. 

And I might add that a true entrepreneur will understand that you can never get comfortable. Getting too comfortable can be the downfall of your business. Even when you feel you have reached your desired level of success, you need to move that bar and keep pushing. 

So, if you're thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, don't let anyone stop you! Just go for it!
