6 Things That Only Entrepreneurs Will Understand
Every entrepreneur has a different story about why he or she decided to start a business. Some have known from day one that they wanted to work for themselves and others come up with ideas while working for someone else and decide to take the entrepreneurial leap.
Most business owners will agree on one thing — being an entrepreneur is great. There are endless reasons for this, and every entrepreneur will have his or her own personal reasons as well. Here are 6 reasons, why I think entrepreneurship is amazing.
1. You have full control over your business destiny.
When I left my job in 2016 and started Seo Souq, I was worried. I had a family that depended upon me and was not sure if I would be able to make enough money to survive in the UAE.
It was a scary situation. But I had a plan.
I knew the power of digital marketing and I had experience of running large ad campaigns for clients like Samsung, LG, DTCM and Al Rawabi. I knew that if you advertise strategically online, you can get a huge ROI.
So, the very first month, I spent AED 25,000 advertising our digital services and got 50 B2B enquiries. Each of this enquiry was a person who was interested in using our services, not someone that came from a database or the result of a cold call.
I met each of these 50 prospects personally and converted 5 into paying clients. We were in business.
Once you are able to use digital advertising to bring in business, you are in control of your business destiny. You can decide how much you want to make every month. If you need to know more about how we do this for our clients, visit www.seosouq.com
2. Entrepreneurs are innovators.
Think of all the new technology and ideas that have come to life over the past few years. Those were all once just an idea — but amazing entrepreneurs brought those ideas to life.
3. You become part of a family.
The entrepreneurial culture is almost like a big family — and you won’t find a better group of people willing to offer advice and help than fellow entrepreneurs.
4. You control who represents your brand.
The team you surround yourself with plays a major role in your success — you can assemble a team of like-minded individuals that share your same drive and passion.
5. No dress code.
CEO and Founder of Facebook, was recently on the Bloomberg and stated that he wears a grey t-shirt every day to work (which everyone knows) because he does not want to make wardrobe decisions so early in the morning. He is the boss — he can wear whatever he wants.
6. You have the opportunity to change lives.
Have an idea for a product or service that has the potential to make a huge impact? Go for it — nothing is stopping you!
