10 Signs That You Might Be an Entrepreneur

Everyone is different, but entrepreneurs also have many over-lapping qualities as well. Only certain characteristics could bring a person to make as crazy of a decision as to become an entrepreneur. Below are 10 signs that you might be an entrepreneur, or a would-be entrepreneur.

10. Wishing

You always wish you had another pot of coffee, a clone of yourself, and a pen that worked! Entrepreneurs can never have enough pens.

9. Sanity

You have momentary lapses in it. Have you ever handed out business cards so robotically that you forgot where you were? Like your kid’s school? No? Yeah- uh- me neither. Entrepreneurs are allowed to lose their minds every once in a while.

8. Offices

You have an office and it gets 30 miles to the gallon! Entrepreneurs have been known to use cars as offices, tents, and recliners!

7. Sleep

You get plenty of sleep between the hours of 2 AM and 3 AM. Sleep when you’re dead? Who has time for that! Grab another pot of coffee!

6. Coffee Mugs

You use coffee mugs- to hold pens. Entrepreneurs are known for their efficiency, and coffee mugs are just middlemen. Time to cut out the middleman because the whole pot is going down!

5. Energy Supplements

5 Hour Energy is useless to you. 5 of those might do something. The day an entrepreneur only needs 5 hours will be the day that I trot up the steps of the White House on a Unicorn and declare “for Narnia!”

4. Phantom Vibrations

More like phantom stillness. There are only two scenarios where an entrepreneur’s phone stops vibrating:

  1. The Battery Dies
  2. The Apocalypse

3. Questions

You’re so used to being bombarded with questions that you’ve seriously considered a “take-a-number” dispenser. Most entrepreneurs have priced out a “take-a-number” dispenser at some point in their journey

2. Patience

You need more of that yesterday! While entrepreneurs can always use more patience, it is hard to slow down that fast paced entrepreneurial spirit. It’s on the to-do list though.

1. Opposition

People think you’re crazy and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Being an entrepreneur is tough, and people recognize that, but true entrepreneurs love what they do. Entrepreneurs, even the most successful, have had to overcome those moments where people didn’t believe they would succeed. It’s OK if people think you’re crazy, you didn’t get this far listening to what everyone else told you.

There you have the 10 signs that you might be an entrepreneur. If you exhibit any of these signs, the most important thing to remember is to not panic! Embrace this epiphany and seize the entrepreneur within you. If this ridiculous but fun spirited article has helped you in an inspiring way, please let us know in the comments.
