Note: Irrespective of your maturity and life's

experiential learning, you may find it beneficial

capture notes with your writing hand, in your note book,

as they assimilate in your subconscious, resulting in

your entrepreneurial character analysis, which you then

use in your decision making process.



1. Freedom.
Having complete freedom means having complete control of your life.  Controlled by a time card is unacceptable.  Freedom is one of the many reasons why you absolutely love being an entrepreneur.

2. Self Improvement and Personal Growth.
Personal growth plays a huge role in your development while you continue to improve upon your business. Deciding to become an Entrepreneur is more than just running your own business.  It is about evolving to be of more value to yourself and others; it is about being a better person, and continuous personal growth education.

Napoleon Hill writes: “If you’re not learning while you’re earning, you’re cheating yourself out of the better portion of your compensation”.

3. Fulfilling Work.  Be Proud Of What You Are Doing.
As an entrepreneur, you can claim your accomplishments with pride.  If it is an information product that you created or a team that you built by the dozens, hundreds, or thousands, it’s your accomplishment.

When it is a failure, it is your failure that you, as an entrepreneur, ultimately grows from.

A sure way to double your rate of success, is to double your rate of failure. ~ Tom Watson.

4. Building Your Own Asset
Starting your own business is a very smart thing to do.

As an employee, you choose to exchange your time for money.  Most of the time, it’s just barely to get you through your living.

As an entrepreneur, you choose to exchange your time for building an asset, your asset that usually pays you for a lifetime.  This asset also increases your net worth rather than your employers net worth.

An important point to remember is this, because you decide to start your own business it becoming an asset depends entirely on you learning, applying, developing and growing your business; however, with dedication and implementation, there is no limit to what you achieve.

5. To Make a Difference.
Art, inventions and business are some of the things that you can create that will outlast you.

Building your own organization or business, increases your self-worth, helps you provide a product, a service, and an opportunity for people to do the same, with your tutelage.  When you do it right, your business and organizations continue to thrive, helping others long after you are gone, creating your legacy.


Financial Security.
Financial Security has more to do with how you feel as a person.  It is different for every one.
Practically, it is having in a separate bank account in which you contribute to create and maintain a balance equal to the total of two years of your monthly expenses.

Example: Total ‘Monthly Expenses’ equal $4,000.00 x 24 = $96,000.00.
If you loose your job, statistics show that in the current economic environment, it takes two years to find a job of equal income replacement.  Statistics also show you’ll need two jobs to replace your past income, therefore a drastic change in your lifestyle.
You need an appropriate financial plan and enough financial resources, to adequately fulfill you and your family’s individual or business needs and most wants.
Financial security often refers to individual and family money management and savings.  It is an admirable goal for which you strive; however, it is important to define your financial security so that it is achievable for you.  Debt-free, controlling your expenses, increasing your savings every month and doing what you love can lead to a happy, fulfilling and prosperous life for you.

Shift Your Retirement Saving Into High Gear.
Pay yourself by contribution to your retirement account, before you pay any bills.

Map Out Your Bill-Paying Priorities.

Financial Independence.

1. Keep your life as simple as possible.
How do you do that?  Take a lot of time on the big decisions.  Who you marry, buying a house, and where you work.  The biggest obstacles to the good life are complications from divorce, a house you can't sell or a job you hate.  The #1 decision in your life is who you marry.

2. Learning what is most valuable.  What brings happiness?
Most people don't learn this one until they are 65 years old.  If you figure this out when you are 30, the good life is a guarantee.

The most valuable and enjoyable things in life are your health, time with family and friends, and a job that you enjoy. 

Buying expensive things brings less and less satisfaction. Buying an expensive car, vacation home, or latest large-screen TV will bring fleeting moments of happiness.  

Skip the expensive stuff when you are young, build your savings, and later in life you will have the financial freedom to spend time with your friends and family and a job you enjoy.

Related point; keep your life and your possessions in balance.  Here is how you do it.

Every time you acquire something new, take the time to give something away. 
Buy a new car, think about selling your old car, at a below market price, to a relative or neighbor that needs a good used car at a low price.  Buy a new TV or computer; give your old one away free through web sites.

3. Buying a home.
One of your biggest decisions is buying a home.  Take a lot of time.  Never rush. Rent and save money until you can afford a nice, new construction home in a new and growing neighborhood.  Sell this house in 5 years and buy a home in the best neighborhood you can afford and stay in this house for many years.

Take a lot of time.  Look at a lot of houses and when you narrow it down to one house, walk around the neighborhood on a Saturday morning before you make any decision.  

4. Buying a car.
Buy a new car take care of it and own it for 8 years.  Then sell it and buy a new one. Never lease a car.

If you need a second car, buy a new one and keep it for 10 years and then buy a new one.

5. Vacation home.
Never buy a vacation home, but spend money on nice vacations each year.  Never buy a time-share of any kind.

Hobbies and sports; take an interest in the low-cost hobbies
Low-Cost Hobbies / Sports
Collecting old stereo equipment

Expensive Hobbies / Sports
Sports Cars
Latest Electronic Gadget.

6. Monthly Services: cell phones, cable TV, internet access and lawn service.
Never buy anything from a phone solicitation or someone that knocks at your door, a TV infomercial or a street salesman when on vacation.  Be careful buying anything with a monthly service fee.  Sweat the details to keep these costs as low as possible.  Never sign long term contracts.

7. Debt.
Never carry a balance on a credit card when you are over 30 years of age and no debt other than the mortgage on your house, by the time you reach 40 years.  When you are 50 years of age no mortgage, no car payments.

Cost of Sending Kids to College:
It may not be realistic to pay for college and be debt-free by the time you are 50.  So if you have big college costs in your late 40's or 50's you should try to be free of all debt by the age of 60.
The most important thing about paying for college is selecting the college for your children.  You decide where your children go to college.  If you let the kids decide, you may compromise your financial security for your retirement. 

You, the parent, must select the school you can afford.  This is a huge financial decision.

Additionally, attending a community college the first two years of college and a state university for the junior and senior years, result in huge savings for the cost of a good college education. 

8. Save, save, save.
Save a lot of money in your 30's and 40's.  Invest your savings in low-cost stock index mutual funds, about 50 to 60 percent and in US Government bonds, agency bonds or high quality tax-exempt bonds 40 to 50 percent.

At about age 50 shift about 80 percent of your savings into safe, income producing bonds.

9. Job downshifting / Fun up-shifting.
Now you are in your early 50's, you have no debt, you have a large nest egg that generates good interest income and you have a lot of flexibility.

Find that job that you really enjoy - something low-pressure and rewarding. 

Spend more time with your family and friends.  Pick up tennis or swimming.  Continue to work at this fun job into your early 60's.  Retire if you like and continue to live utilizing the interest generated from your income producing nest egg.

10. How to avoid the complications of divorce.

Divorce is one of the main causes of financial instability.

Don't rush any decision.  Have a long engagement period (at least one year).  Many people have a "dating personality" and a "real personality".  You need enough time to get to know the "real personality".

The real personality becomes visible through their actions and reactions to something that goes wrong when interacting with a stranger, waiter in a restaurant or driver on the road.  If someone is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, you’ll receive treatment like the waiter after you are married.  In addition, if someone has a poor long-term relationship with more than one parent or brother or sister, this is a clear warning sign.

Financial freedom.
Financial freedom describes a well-planned lifestyle free of debt.  It describes having sufficient personal wealth to live, without having to actively work for necessities.  
For financially independent people, their assets generate income that is greater than their expenses.
A person's assets and liabilities are an important factor in determining if they have achieved financial independence.  
An asset is anything of value that liquidates for cash when a person needs money.  
A liability relates to debt and is the responsibility of the owner to pay for it.  Homes and automobiles without liens or mortgages are common assets.

It does not matter how old or young you are or how much money you have or earn, when you generate enough money to meet and exceed your needs, then you have achieved financial independence.

Nine Steps you can take to Financial Freedom.

Step 1: Seeing how your past holds the key to your financial future
Almost everyone has some key memory related to money in their past that is particularly vibrant.   Unearthing these very strong short accounts of a particular incident or event, can give ideas for teasing out that key memory.

Why would you want to tease out that memory?   Childhood memories, particularly strong ones, are layered in feelings of all kinds.  Those memories are of the moments that defined who you are as a person, and true understanding of those memories can bring about significant insight into your adult life, which is what the second step deals with.

Example: I remembered the time when my father lost his job and he began selling cosmetics, pharmaceutics and vitamins door to door with poor results.  It is truly a painful memory to recall seeing the frustration he endured after a day’s work having made one sale.

Step 2: Facing your fears and creating new truths.
This second step is really just an extension of the first one.  Once you’ve teased out that memory in detail, you can dig through it to see what exactly it says about your current views on personal finance.

Make a list of your current fears.  What are you afraid of?  When you’re able to actually be honest with yourself and list them, comparing these insights to your memory can be very insightful.  Often, the memory explains the root cause of your fear.  When you understand what exactly the fear is, you can begin to tackle it in various ways.  Suggestion: A mantra that you repeat for comfort and confidence.

The first two steps are like “self help” concepts, but they do work.  Affirmations you create work good.  I discovered a key money memory that reflects clearly on my behavior with money.  I do agree with the need to conquer fear.  Abundance affirmations are part of my method of conquering my fear of personal finance.

Step 3: Being honest with you.
This is definitely the meatiest step, and it provides the first non-psychological steps you can take to get your financial house in order, though this one is also a psychological trick at its core.

The basic idea is this, most people do not have a real grasp on what they’re spending or what they’re bringing in, and quite often people are spending more than they’re bringing in without really realizing it, thus creating severe financial problems over time.  This is typical given the consumerist lifestyle that so many of us live.

Practical Solution: Take two years worth of records and make a list of everything you spent by category, then make a monthly average for each category. Next, do the same thing for your income and compare the two. 

This provides the background for a truly realistic budget; you can see from this data whether you’re overspending and you have actual numbers to work with when determining where to cut to improve your finances.

You can use this information to trim away from your budget; however, the real asset here is psychological; activity can really make you see where that money is going.

Step 4: Being responsible to those you love.
Assurance planning; in other words, insurance, wills, and trusts.  The succinct  point is that you focus first on the people that are truly important to you and make sure that insurance, wills and beneficiaries are set up to take care of everything in the way you truly want.

This allows you to feel more confident about your position in the world.

Contact experts for handling these intricate details. Trust a person you know well to provide the answers to these areas of the law.

Step 5: Being respectful of yourself and your money.
Set your own basic financial house in order; contributing to retirement, shedding any high-interest debt.  In essence, ensure that you are on a level playing field with your long term future covered.  This makes you feel better about you and your money.

Pay off your credit cards as soon as you can, take advantage of every dime of employee matching in your optional retirement plans 401k, 403b, and contribute maximally what you put into your Roth IRA.

Step 6: Trusting yourself more than you trust others.
Building your wealth means trusting yourself in terms of where to go next once your financial house is in order.

Consult a financial planner and use your gut feeling to guide your investing.  You should become as comfortable as you can with your money so that you can follow your pure gut instinct about what’s right for you.


Step 7: Be open and receptive all that you are meant to have.
It is an illusion to believe money brings happiness; however, happiness can bring money into your life.  Therefore understand this; money is merely a tool to bring about happiness.

There is a therapeutic effect in giving to charities; however, never let cash gifting interfere with your family and friends.  Balance your financial life and accumulate wealth.

Step 8: Understanding the ebb and flow of the money cycle.
Much good can come from the bad times in your life, whether it is new opportunity or merely personal growth.  Very often, the mistakes you make in life end up being the foundation for much greater things.

Step 9: Recognizing true wealth
The simple recognition is this, the truly valuable things in life are not monetary.  This appears simple; however, many people overlook this fact.

The most valuable thing in your life could be the smile on the face of your love one.  It has no real financial value; however, no amount of money can ever replicate what you feel when you see that smile.

The true path to wealth comes from having inner peace.  It is nice having enough money; however, happiness is up to you.

If you choose to build your own business as an entrepreneur, it is important that you discover and understand your “Why” for doing so.

Put simply, your personal values outline what is most important to you in your life.  The better you define your personal values, the more capable you are of finding your “why” and a career that is in harmony with those values.

Creating a statement that represents your personal values, can also help define your moral fiber, potential partners and set a standard by which to define your own success.

Here are some questions and statements, written in the first person singular, that help me focus in a good direction allowing me to discover and identify my values.

What is important to me?

Is Loyalty and objectivity very important to me?  
Loyalty increases the longevity of my relationship, and objectivity allows me to make decisions based on facts rather than politics and emotion.

What do I value?
I value loyalty, honesty, open mindedness, self-discipline, creativity, innovation and the willingness to continue learning.

Am I Creative and Innovative?
Being creative and innovative is thinking outside the box on a lot of issues.  Its challenging authority, figuring out why I do things a certain way, being proactive about fixing problems and finding solutions.

Am I Intelligent?
Intelligence is my willing to learn and continue learning new things each and every day. It’s not afraid to ask questions and figure out the “nuts and bolts” details.

Am I Loyal?
Loyalty is staying on the ship no matter how violent the storm.  When I am loyal, I never leave and never question the integrity of my higher source.

Am I Open Minded, Independent and objective?
When I am open minded and independent it helps me to be objective becoming a better decision maker.  It is realizing why I am making decisions and having the capacity to see a broader picture.

Am I Self Disciplined?
Self-discipline is running in the 100-degree heat when no one else is out there with me. It is quitting the filthy habit that consumes me.  It is getting up for work when there is no one to hold me accountable.  It is being true to my God who I never see.  It is doing things right the first time every time.

Am I Self Aware?
To analyze my decisions and beliefs helps me to know why I made the decision and why I believe what I believe.

What are my personal goals?
Pay off my loans, become fluent in a second language, become a voice in online marketing and improve my online business, etc.
What are my strengths and talents?
I am very technical.  I do a lot of programming, designing and development.  I have an eye for color and love doing graphic design.  I am a master handiman.  I am proficient with the english language and I write very well.  I speak proper English, and I positively communicate my thoughts and concerns.  I’m opinionated; however, politics and emotion never get in my way of making a decision.  This paragraph is an example.  You can write your own.

At the end of my life, what do I want my legacy to be?
I am a good man, a good citizen, a good husband, a good brother who loves and support my community. I learne a second language, help my heritage and help others to learn something new and different.  I am a writer and a man who loves unconditionally. 

Now is a great time to begin writing your legacy.

What is my personal mission statement?
I focused on my faith, belief, spirituality, my family, my contributions to country and my heritage.  I am continually striving to excel personally, technically and academically.

Do I have what it takes?  Is it worth all my effort and sacrifice?
There is no way to eliminate all the risks associated with starting my business as an entrepreneur.
However, I can improve my chances of success with good planning and preparation.  A good starting place is to evaluate my strengths, weaknesses and carefully consider each of the following questions.
Am I a self-starter?
It will be up to me, not someone else telling me­ to develop projects, organize my time and follow through on details.
How well do I get along with different personalities?
As A business owner I develop working relationships with a variety of people including customers, vendors, staff, and professionals such as lawyers, accountants or consultants.

Can I deal with a demanding client, an unreliable vendor or cranky staff person in the best interest of my business?
Developing and cultivating a calm demeanor, personal control, a positive mental attitude and a physical exercise program, all help me to remain calm in these situations.
How good am I at making decisions?
As a person, entrepreneur and small business owner I make decisions constantly, often quickly, under pressure, and independently.
Do I have the physical and emotional stamina to run my business?
Owning my business can be challenging, fun and exciting; however, it is also a lot of work. Can I face 12 ­hour or longer work days six or seven days a week?

How well do I plan and organize?
Research indicates that many business fail because of poor planning.  Good organization of financials, inventory, schedules and production ­ help me avoid pitfalls.

Is my ambition strong enough to maintain my motivation?
Operating a business can wear me down.  As a business owner I can feel burned out because of having to carry all the responsibility on my shoulders.  Sharing and delegation are tools I embrace.  Strong motivation makes my business succeed and help me survive slowdowns as well as periods of burnout.

How will the business affect my family?
The first few years of business start­up are difficult and hard on family life.  The strain of an unsupportive spouse may be hard to balance against the demands of starting my business. 

There also may be financial difficulties until the business becomes profitable, which could take months or years.  I may have to adjust to a lower standard of living or put my family assets at risk.

What are your thoughts?
It's true; there are a lot of reasons to start my own business.

Identify some of your reasons reasons.
Since I am the right person, the advantages of business ownership far outweigh the risks.  Why?
I get to be my own boss.

How do you feel when you repeat this statement?
Hard work and long hours directly benefit me, rather than increasing profits for someone.
Do you believe this?
Earning and growth potential are less limited.
Do you believe this?
A new business venture is exciting.
What is exciting for you?
Operating my business provide endless variety, challenge and opportunities for me to learn.
What do you become?  What will I learn?

List of Values
The following list of values help you develop a clearer sense of what is most important to you in your life.

As you peruse the values list below, you may find that while most values have little or no significance to you and some may even seem negative to you, there are those values that just jump out at you, like a slap against your head and you feel, "Yes, this value is part of me".

This list is a guide.  It is lengthy; however, it is certainly not exhaustive, so feel free to add unlisted values as you create your own list.

Suggestion:  Do not print this list or check what you believe to be your values; instead, create your own list on a separate page using a pen in your writing hand. 

There is a distinct psychological connection between your subconscious and your writing hand.  Additionally, when you complete the list in this manner, it becomes your list; you accept complete and full responsibility for your list of values.  You can add or subtract from your list at any time making it especially personal to only you.

Do You Have What It Takes to Be an Entrepreneur? 

Before you make a big change and quit your nine-to-five job, or if you’ve already made that giant step into entrepreneurship, conduct this careful self-assessment.

Do you feel you have these entrepreneurial qualities to fulfill your goals and accomplish your Dreams ?

Contemplating all this information, can you cognitively reframe your mindset and feel confident enough within you, to develop these attributes and characteristics of an entrepreneur? 

Here are some thoughts to ponder, and questions for which you must find the answers.

  • Can I work without a playbook?  When you run your own business, you call the shots.  This can be both a blessing and a curse.  To thrive in this entrepreneurial environment, you need to feel comfortable navigating some uncharted and often rocky and rough waters, without guidance.  If these are not your strengths right now, you have to know that you need to learn them, quickly.  It is like sailing a boat alone.  To really enjoy the sail you have to manage the wailing.
  • Can I work long hours with no end in sight?  Never quit your day job with the assumption that, as a business owner, you’ll work fewer hours.  In very few cases that “four-hour work week” actually exists.  Rather, the first few years as a business owner can be excruciatingly tough.  The bottom line?  When running a business, you’ve got to love and believe in what you do, in your self, and your product unconditionally.
  • Can I sacrifice a steady lifestyle? Accounting for your current stage in life, assess the importance of the following: a steady paycheck, two weeks paid vacation and employer-sponsored health insurance, to name a few.  Most entrepreneurs will need to forfeit such perks for the first few years, or more, of running their businesses.  You need to account and plan for uncertainty and lean times; both financially and mentally.
  • Can I look at my failures as lessons of encouragement?  I must constantly remind myself that the greatest barrier to success is my fear of failure.  As an entrepreneur, it’s easy to get stressed or downright panicked at times, but don’t allow fear to paralyze you or prevent your business from accelerating. Know that even the most successful entrepreneurs fail more than they succeed.  On the bright side, if you learn from each failure, it’s not really a failure.  Is it?
  • Can I feel satisfied and grateful without external recognition?  When you own a business, there’s no boss to pat you on the back or give you a raise, and no teacher to give you an "A".  This means you’ll need to rely on yourself to stay appreciated, motivated and inspired.
  • Can I live without attempting to be perfect, fully aware that aiming for perfection leads to procrastination?  Too often, perfection can be the enemy. As an entrepreneur, your livelihood is launching a product, service, website, blog, application, etc.  You can’t wait for “perfect”.  As an entrepreneur, you’ve got to be able to let go of that unattainable ideal.  Shake off mistakes, correct minor glitches and move on. Go with what you have and build on what you learn.  In other words, you have to be nimble like a ninja, and hit the ground running.
  • Can I get past temporary disappointment and failure?  When you’re passionate about what you do, it’s hard not to take rejection personally.  As an entrepreneur, you’re going to receive your fair share; rejection from investors or an incubator program, a lost sale, a lackluster blog review, etc. To dwell on the rejection or feel bitter is a waste of time. Take each rejection as an opportunity to learn and work harder next time.
  • Can I be open-minded always?  Committed to an idea is important, but the ability to pivot, and be nimble, is equally essential.  For instance, you may tackle an initial project only to encounter a change in customer behavior or market conditions.  Therefore, that original idea, you need to tweak.  Recognize that the customer and market are not wrong. You’ll need to listen to customers, watch the market, learn from each failure and make adjustments on a regular basis.

    I challenge you to re-write each one of these as an affirmation in the first person, hang them in a prominent place and repeat them every day paying attention to the changes in your lifestyle.
Below, I completed the first one for you as an example.

I can work without a playbook.  I operate my your own business, I call all the shots. This is a blessing for me because I am in control.  I thrive in this entrepreneurial environment, and I feel comfortable navigating the uncharted rocky business waters, with guidance.  These are my strengths; I learn them, quickly.  I am sailing my entrepreneurial boat all alone, and I am enjoying the thrilling ride.
