Wait a minute.
I just sat through a one hour webinar learning the “5 Step System to Enroll High-Paying Clients” and that is the third webinar I will be attending this week. Thousands were present on this webinar, mostly entrepreneurs who wanted to build a thriving business around their life’s purpose.
Despite the efforts of entrepreneurship:
- Watching webinars at midnight because of difference in time zones
- Working a “9-5” while building a business on the side
- Buying high-priced courses
- Hiring the best web designer and slaving away on your computer to produce a fine copy
- Reading every single post on duct tape marketing to stay on trend…
Despite all of this, you still think “it’s normal.” No, it’s not!
It’s because you are a die-hard Rockefeller who is not scared to burn the bridges
A die-hard entrepreneur in the context of this post is a business owner who is not afraid to support his dreams, and passion to make a difference in spite of opposition and in the face of challenges.
The Brain of a Die-Hard Entrepreneur
Entrepreneurs take an insane amount of risk to build their business, and they are unrelenting because the brain of a die-hard entrepreneur:
Is wired to see problems as a spring board
Just as a writer sees every situation as a blog post, a die-hard entrepreneur sees problems, no matter how difficult, as a springboard to success unprecedented. Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon, wasn’t inspired to create Amazon Web Services until it was having problems scaling its eCommerce infrastructure. Today, Amazon Web Services has become a platform that enables any developer or business to build scalable applications, as desired.
What fuels a die-hard entrepreneur is not money, fame or getting a full spread in Forbes. It is the ability to crack tough nuts and create a trend that others follow.
CRACK THE NUTS = GET THE CELEBRITY STATUS
Is wired to embrace followership and mentorship
Contrary to popular opinion, an entrepreneur doesn’t jump on the leadership train. In most cases, successful entrepreneurs are first of all, followers of their mirror image (person they look up to) and end up with their leadership style and level of success.
If you ever follow Ramit Sethi’s blog, you’d think that he never had a mentor. But Ramits mentor is Jay Abraham, and Ramit credits much of his success to him. He is a die-hard follower that he claims he would pay 10x the price to be in Jay’s program.
To be wired as a die-hard entrepreneur is to have a mentor who will never let you be anything less than the best, and if you belong to the duct tape community, you are already accessing some high-level mentorship every time you read a post because what this platform does is allow you pick on experts brain without paying a dime.
Is wired to stick to the plan
Charlie Page as been an entrepreneur for over two decades and was a member of the Directory of Ezines in 2001. Less than 18 months later, he bought the company.
On June 1 2015, thirteen years later, Charlie’s got a single piece of advice to share with his mailing list:
“Find something that works and KEEP ON DOING IT until it stops working.”
Charlie, like other die-hard entrepreneurs are wired to:
STICK TO THE PLAN
With the statistics that three out of four businesses will fail, you must be twisted to think that your ideas will generate a six-figure income. The good news is, there are many twisted folks out there whom we greatly admire.
The most successful entrepreneurs from Marie Forleo, Yaro Starak, John Jantsch to Ryan Levesque and Jeanna Gabellini, all must be twisted to plan million dollar launches with unattractive budgets, live a laptop lifestyle, launch bestselling books and build a list from scratch. Yikes
TWISTED FOLKS = DIE-HARD ENTREPRENEURS
So the next time people call you weird because you refuse to give up on your ideas, know that they are not far from the truth.
It’s because you are wired differently.
