Most people go to college, then get an internship. After that they go to a low paying job without a day off for the first whole year. That is the traditional path that most people take.
If you want to do something for the world and for the people around you, you have to take a different path – the path of entrepreneurship. The possibilities in that field are limitless and you can achieve a lot more than from having a job and hoping that you will get a slight raise soon.
The world needs more entrepreneurs, more people who are making shit happen as opposed to people who hope the society will take care of them. Entrepreneurship is a different way of looking at the world and how you lead your life.
Start reading books about entrepreneurship and business and implement what you have read in the real life. That is what entrepreneurs do and that is why they can make an actual change in the world. It feels great to be around entrepreneurs and successful people all the time.
In the beginning I had a lot of struggles and obstacles that I had to go through. Most of my friends did not approve what I have been trying to achieve in my life. They did not believe in me at all.
I and my friend tried to start a business and we failed miserably in our first 2 years in business. We did not make any kind of profit. That is why he quit, but I decided that I should follow my dream life.
If you want to become successful, surround yourself with successful people, who know what they are talking about, who know how businesses run, who know what kind of models, ideas work.
I decided to leave my parents, move to a brand new country and rely only on myself. At that point my business started succeeding. I started traveling the world and building my business.
I stopped listening to what other people are saying about me. I listen only people like my mentors and people who have the same interests as me. I put myself in a situation where I had to make my business work. Otherwise, there would not have been any money even for food.
I started getting more and more clients and my business started growing faster. When my business become really successful, all those hater behind me started asking me questions like: “How is that possible to build a business while traveling the world?”
I started an YouTube channel where I talk about marketing, entrepreneurship and how to start a business. All of a sudden, people started contacting me and all of them wanted me to teach them how to build a business.
In the beginning I did not intend to teach them, but there were a lot of people contacting me, so I decided that I should give it a try. I created a business where I teach people how to start and run a business while traveling the world. I do that based on my experience and based on what I have learnt from being in business for 6 years. That is how I became a business coach.
You do not need an idea to start a business. Look for people who are already in business and have achieved success with their idea. Talk to them, ask them questions and use their business model, because it is proven to work.
