Is your goal to become an entrepreneur?

If the answer is yes, then I hope you will pay attention to this article and take notes because I am going to reveal to you what the academic research says about how to be a successful entrepreneur, even if it’s your first time out of the gate.

What Does an Entrepreneur Do?

If this is your first time being an entrepreneur, you might be wondering, what does an entrepreneur actually do all day?

And the answer depends on what type of entrepreneur you want to be. There are several types of entrepreneurs:

  • there are solopreneurs
  • there are side hustle preneurs
  • and there are traditional entrepreneurs

The answer also depends on your goals, such as:

  • do you want to create a job for yourself?
  • do you want to create a company that employs others?
  • do you want to build a company to go public?
  • do you want to build a company to stay private?

Once you answer these questions first, then you’re ready to dive into being the entrepreneur you want to be.
