Difference Between Entrepreneurs and Employees

Are some people born entrepreneurs or are they trained to be entrepreneurs?

The answer is simple.

People are trainable and we can be trained to be either employees or entrepreneurs.

The reason why there are more employees than entrepreneurs in the world is simply because most of our education trains us to become employees.

We’re trained to specialize in school subjects so that you can be useful and work for someone else.

Examples of this are doctors and lawyers. While these careers make sense to go to school for, most other careers don’t.

If you are studying for a business degree, it won’t mean you’ll know how to create a business.

Professors are usually not entrepreneurs but employees. They’ve rarely built businesses from scratch and experience the challenges of creating one. Instead, they teach you theories and facts.

As a result, when you are in the real world, you are not equipped with the knowledge of knowing how to start a business so you go the 9-5 route instead.

While many people dream of having more freedom, leaving their job and starting their own business, only a few are able to go through with it.

Because the transition from employee to entrepreneur is more than about changing jobs.

It’s about going thorough a complete metamorphosis.

You have to leave your limiting beliefs and everything you grew up learning about making money behind.

What got you to your safe and secure job won’t give you the freedom of an entrepreneur.

The more security you seek, the less freedom you have.

If you want freedom, you need to let go of security.

Anyone can train and develop themselves to become an entrepreneur but it starts with a mindset shift.

Employees desire security and entrepreneurs pursue freedom.

I’m curious to know, do you desire more security or freedom in your life? 👇
