5 Myths About Being an Entrepreneur

Posted by Mark Hess


If you’re looking for a feel good post about why you should quit your secure 9 to 5 job and become an entrepreneur, this is not the post for you. But if you are starting a business you have some amazing ways to help your success.

Being an entrepreneur is great and I wouldn’t trade it for a desk job, but there are some things aspiring (or existing) entrepreneurs should know.
  • Myth #1 You’re going to be insanely successful. Maybe, maybe not; only time and your ambition will tell. Am I saying it’s not good to dream big? No. I’m just saying there is only one Facebook and only one Mark Zuckerberg in this world. But go for it!
  • Myth #2 Entrepreneurs have a very flexible work schedules. They can work three to four hours a day and have plenty of time to goof off. I know I’m not alone when I say that entrepreneurs don’t have the luxury of ending our workday abruptly at 5pm. When you own your own company or work for someone who does, you have to put in the extra hours and the extra effort to make things happen.
  • Myth #3 Entrepreneurs can take off when they want -- after all, you’re the boss, right? But most entrepreneurs live, eat and breathe their businesses and a lot of times down time gets pushed to the wayside. What’s more important: Hanging out or generating income so you can pay bills the next couple months?
  • Myth #4 Working for yourself means you’ll have more time for your relationship, your pets, taking care of your home, etc. Not likely. Instead of taking your significant other out to a nice meal, you ask to get drive thru so you can get back to work quicker. Start ups require time and dedication. 
  • Myth #5 Everyone wants to have your job. They only think they do. I’m guessing it’s because people genuinely don’t love their jobs, but most will think you have this perfect setup where you get to be your own boss and play all day long. Ha! Do you want to trade the last three days I worked 18 hours and had to go above and beyond to appease clients? No, no you don’t. But it'll be worth it if you persist.

For all of you out there starting your own business, keep fighting the good fight. We’re all doing things we love and enjoy, and that’s what matters. I may not be building the next Facebook, but I am excited about controlling my own destiny and knowing the harder I work, the more results I see.
