I am not an Entrepreneur, but I like to learn from the tribe of risk-takers who have the ‘audacity of hope’. The zest for life, the killer instincts to close the deal and make things happen are attitudinal traits that every professional should have. Rainmaking and thinking ahead of the curve are pre-requisites for very knowledge worker in todays tumultuous economic climate. Most firms want their employees to bring in ‘work’, create opportunities where there is one.
In Anand Mahindra’s words, Entrepreneurship is a frame of mind. Have a vision and making heaven and earth move to realise it. It is not the scarcity of capital which restricts people to venture out, it is simply that lack of guts, the tenacity of listening to criticism day in and out, but have the audacity to rough it out. It does not have to be your own business, it can be the division you run, the team you lead or simply proving your detractors in your family and colleagues the real world way:
Prove it. Just Do it.
Have the Entrepreneurial Spirit. Make things happen. Be Outstanding. Fulfil your Calling.
