How to Find Your Place as an Entrepreneur – Identifying Your Passion

Innovation and passion go hand in hand. You may wonder how you can find your place as an entrepreneur in a world where everything is right at your fingertips and there seems to be a solution to every problem. Start by trying out this simple exercise to help you narrow your focus:

Entrepreneur Exercise #1

1.  Close your eyes. 2.  Think about the top five things you are most passionate about. 3.  Take a piece of paper and fold it in half and write those five things down on the left side of the paper. 4.  Write down any problems you face with your passions on the right side of the same piece of paper. 5.  Look at each problem one by one, can you think of a solution?

Entrepreneur Exercise #2

Once you have completed exercise #1, try and finish this sentence for each problem that you’ve listed to see if it helps you to clarify what the solution may be: If only I could do _____ with ____ that would no longer be a problem.

If you weren’t too specific with your top five list, such as using your spouse or children, at least one of your top five should fit into the sentence relatively easily. Are the ideas going through your entrepreneurial mind of how you could fix the problem? If not, don’t worry, sometimes it takes more time and thought or the solution may come to you later.

What Does It Take?

It takes time, determination, energy, and money to get a business up and running, not to mention the headaches of licenses, government forms, and compliance with federal and local regulations. Imagine all that fun bundled up in a business you simply have lukewarm excitement for. What do you think the chances of success are for that business as an entrepreneur?

Being an entrepreneur may take more work for some than it does for others! Sometimes it just isn’t a good fit. If you’re struggling to come up with a brand-new idea find something you are passionate about and put a new spin on it. Whether it is a brand-spanking-new idea or a version of an already existing idea, the number one consideration should be “am I passionate about this”. If you aren’t passionate about it then abandon the idea now.

Pulling It All Together

Now think about all that work being put towards something you love. If it something that makes you excited to wake up every morning to see what the day brings then all that hard work and the possible obstacles you will have to overcome don’t seem like such a big deal. Or, at least you should feel that the end result will outweigh the struggle to get there.

In the end, it all boils down to passion. I can’t think of one tech start-up that has been successful without a CEO that is passionate about technology, can you? Do what you know, love what you do, and build from there. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel, but if your passion is wheeled go for it!
