Have you ever wondered what it takes to make the leap from employee to entrepreneur?
What it would take to be your own boss, nurturing your own idea?
Well, they say one can never be an entrepreneur without the courage, the guts, the mindset to be one.
The generalization being that employees are followers, and entrepreneur are leaders!
But there are also entrepreneurial employees, ones who know when it’s time to follow someone else’s lead.
However, when it comes to a worker’s mindset.
There are only two types of mindset:
First, workers with employee mindset, the followers.
Second, workers with entrepreneur mindset, the leader.
Let’s dig into it deeper,
Employee vs Entrepreneur mindset is something can be put to perspective by following ;
1.) When things go wrong, or the economy goes down. I will either blame myself or I will blame economy or government.
2.) I try to grab things all by my own.
3.) For me, most important is job guarantee. I always look forward to a job that provides me a secure platform.
4.) I fear failures.

3.) I don’t have any work schedule I work 24*7.
4.) I choose freedom over working for money.
5.) I focus on the solution, not problems.
