Leaning Into Entrepreneurship

25 Aug

Are you looking for a change from your 9-5? Are you debating about following your passion? Thinking about taking that leap into entrepreneurship? Last week I came across a very interesting video on this topic. The video was created by Caren Magill, the Founder & Chief Media Strategist of Digital Pink Media. Digital Pink is a website portal and consultancy dedicated to helping women entrepreneurs build brands and promote their small business online using affordable, repeatable strategies.

Here is what I learned: when starting out here are 4 tips you should keep in mind.

1. Consider what you’re good at and what you enjoy doing. If you don’t enjoy being in the kitchen cooking, then becoming a top chef might not be the right fit for you. Figure out another way to work your passion.

2. Brainstorm without restrictions. Don’t eliminate any ideas in the beginning. Your best ideas will stick while the other will fall to the side.

3. Explore your ideas exhaustively. Research! Research! Research! Talk to people already in that profession. Find out as much as you can: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

4. Surround yourself with like-minded people. Network both OFFLINE and ONLINE.

So don’t forget to learn about entrepreneurship. You can view the video here on the Digital Pink Media website.
