Should everyone become an entrepreneur?

11 replies
With the growing need to build something, is it really that bad to go on with a corporate job? I am all for a side hustle to fuel your passion but this pressure to start up is insane. How do you deal with it? And if you're a startup owner, do you think it's everyone's cup of tea?

Should everyone become an artist/musician/actor? Of course no=) Only If you want to be an entrepreneur.
@shashcoffe Sure, however, I wish it were that easy. The idea of leaving a corporate job has been glamourized in pop culture. I think what I want to know is, as founders what does it take to see a successful venture and can those skills be learned?

@yeshaswini I think if you really want something you can learn it. I think those skills can be learned if you want to be a successful entrepreneur.

It depends on the person and especially their mindset. For some people working 9-5 is the best solution. Before doing a startup, everyone should be aware of the effort which will be needed for success.

90% of people probably should not become enterpreneurs...

NOPE! I would recommend no one to pursue entrepreneurship unless they have madness inside their minds. Entrepreneurship is a brutal phenomenon of hitting rock bottom 1000 times and then having a few moments of pleasure that last for a negligible duration. Also, entrepreneurship is incomplete without employee contribution. 100% capitalism can never be reached and hence, it's important for people to choose balance if they aim for the same. Entrepreneurship is not for everyone. It's chaotic, imbalanced and lovely!

I think entrepreneurship is a kind of attitude. It is good for someone, but we need a lot of hardworking and enthusiastic coworkers to get things done.

I think you should rephrase your question: "Can everyone become an entrepreneur?" :)

Starting a startup is a life decision, not a side hustle. To start a startup, you must have a clear vision, goal, mission, and problem you're solving for a large audience.

And not everyone can be an entrepreneur because workers play a big role in companies especially startups. When starting a startup, you need a team of problem-solving passionate, and skilled people ready to contribute and deliver to you startup.
