Seth's Blog: The four elements of entrepreneurship
Are successful entrepreneurs made or born?

We’d need to start with an understanding of what an entrepreneur is. They’re all over the map, which makes the question particularly difficult to navigate.

Since entrepreneurship is a verb, an action, a posture… then of course, it’s a choice. You might not want to act like one, but if you can model behavior, you can act like one.

And what do people do when they’re acting like entrepreneurs?

1. They make decisions.

2. They invest in activities and assets that aren’t a sure thing.

3. They persuade others to support a mission with a non-guaranteed outcome.

4. This one is the most amorphous, the most difficult to pin down and thus the juiciest: They embrace (instead of run from) the work of doing things that might not work.

As far as I can tell, that’s it. Everything else you can hire.

All four of these elements are unnatural to most folks. Particularly if you were good at school, you're not good at this. No right answers, no multiple choice, no findable bounds.

It's easy to get hung up on the "risk taking" part of it, but if you’re acting like an entrepreneur, you don’t feel like you’re taking a huge risk. Risks are what happens at a casino, where you have little control over the outcome. People acting like entrepreneurs, however, feel as though the four most important elements of their work (see above) are well within their control.

If you’re hoping someone can hand you a Dummies guide, giving you the quick steps, the guaranteed method, the way to turn this process into a job--well, you’ve just announced that you don’t feel like acting like an entrepreneur.

But before you walk away from it, give it a try. Entrepreneurial behavior isn't about scale, it's about a desire for a certain kind of journey.

LILLY GHALICHI The Epitome of Beauty and Brains - Millennium Magazine
“I started my first company with about $10,000 in my bank account and zero experience. What I did have, however, was an unstoppable desire to succeed and the belief in myself that I could,” said Lilly.

Through hard work, failure, and sheer determination, Lilly has succeeded in the development of the Ghalichi Glam label and created an umbrella of products that include: Lilly Lashes, Lilly Hair Extensions, WantMyLook Clothing, and the Ghalichi Glam Hair and Makeup Tutorials.

Being an entrepreneur and female, Lilly faced many challenges.

“You will make mistakes, perhaps even big ones, and there is no way around it.  When you become an entrepreneur, you need to go in with the mindset that failure is often a part of success.  You can still succeed, even when you “fail,” as long as you never stop learning, and you never give up.  I’ve faced many obstacles, and I’ve made many mistakes, but I’ve never given up trying, and I never stop working for my dreams.”
