The world of business is both an art and a science. Entrepreneurship is even more complex because it calls for both innate and learned skills to execute successfully. Some people are better off working for a business organization. They find the experience of daily challenges and the reality of competing with the other staff members for attention and possible promotion, a true turn on. The narrative changes for an entrepreneur, though. The latter individual cannot stand the roadblocks and limits imposed on their way by their supervisor, manager, director or board of management. An entrepreneur is a risk taker. They want to explore something others have not experienced, and own it. In short, an entrepreneur hates being controlled by the mind of another person in the course of their creative genius’ exploration of possibilities beyond vicinity. So, they won’t make great employees.
So, What Does It Take To Be An Entrepreneur?
Well, as mentioned earlier, it is often the combination of factors. It is a nature and nurture collaboration. While it is not easy to control the “nature” aspect of the equation, the nurture part can be molded and remolded. To make a good entrepreneur, one must be open to learning; learning even the seemingly outrageous. There is a need to be ready for disappointment and resistance. Stories suffice of human resistance to things real and things imagined. The natural tendency to maintain the status quo; no matter how costly or painstaking suffices for all living things. One must be prepared to learn from the best and the worst. Either way, you chart your way to entrepreneurial success. Apart from learning from mistakes and the working tricks by those who have succeeded before you, there is the appropriate environment for innovation and creativity. A born entrepreneur fails to fit into the static routine of employment because, usually, there is already a script that must be followed to the letter. Similarly, countries outsmart each other, based on the environment they facilitate to their citizens. According to the global entrepreneurship index released in 2016, the US, Canada, Australia, and Denmark lead in entrepreneurship. A look at the environment in these countries contrasts sharply with what transpires in countries with the lowest entrepreneurship index. But, that is not still enough. Entrepreneurship requires a certain self-drive; a desire to go out of your way and do something for yourself and others in a different, non-conventional way. The world has some outstanding examples of such people.
Jose Hawilla is a Brazilian born business mogul. He once worked as a journalist with radio stations and TV. Mr. Hawilla was an accomplished sports reporter and later an editor with popular media. However, like a true entrepreneur, he saw an opportunity and grabbed it. He is one of the few who decided that sports journalism could be a major income earner. As expected he was resisted and even ridiculed by friends, colleagues, and others around. However, Jose Hawilla went on to establish a newspaper line that focused on sports news. The newspaper grew and spread like wildfire, and evolved into what is now Brazil’s most respected and successful Sports Marketing Company: Traffic; owned by the business mogul; a true example of how an entrepreneur thinks outside the box and achieves the unthinkable. His initiatives have taken him to cover all the major world sporting events; from Olympics to the world cup, to cross-country championships.
Jose Hawilla is a highly influential personality in Brazil. He also owns a network of newspapers penetrating the inner parts of Sao Paulo, among other major ventures. You can follow their Twitter page.
