Hey Fam welcome back,
In this series, we want to shake the table labelled “Entrepreneurship” 😉
These days, every Tom, Dick, Harry and their dog Billy is an “Entrepreneur”. 🙄
The term “Entrepreneur” is gradually becoming the alias for “I have searched and searched for a Job, I did not get, so now I am selling stuffs on Social Networking Sites like FB, IG and Twitter”.
I am an Entrepreneur now fam! 🙂
Is the above description wrong? Not entirely
The major issue is that 80% of these “Hustlepreneurs” will gladly dump their “entrepreneurship” if they got a job offer.
Matter of fact, if You take a survey and ask them what “Entrepreneurship” means, if they will be truthful to You, most of them do not know the meaning of Entrepreneurship.
“Entrepreneur” has just become a cliche and everybody can now append it to their titles just like “Coach” has become a cliche too.
It is the same way majority of us became Christians because our parents were Christians and we attended “Redeemed” or “Winners” or “Catholic” because that was the denomination our parents attended.
What is the purpose of this table shaking You ask?
Well, I am not like one popular Aunty we know in Nigeria that likes shaking tables that does not concern her to the extent that she was busy shaking other people’s table and she wasn’t looking until she FELL Pregnant on her way to Lekki from Banana Island.
Maybe She slipped on Banana peels and Fell sha, You know there are many Bananas in Banana Island 😛
I did not mention anybody’s name o.
Here is the purpose of this series;
- We want to shake and if possible break this Pseudo Entrepreneurship table?
- We want to burst some of the Entrepreneurship myths and finally
- We will build another Entrepreneurship Table that is based on FACT, FIGURES and Insights.
Follow me in this series, lend a hand as we shake this goddamn table!
Let me give You a major take away before the next post…
In your own words, Who is an Entrepreneur?
