5 Myths About Entrepreneurship

business entrepreneur instincts strengths Sep 01, 2020

Myth 1: Entrepreneurs don't quit.

Reality: Quitting is what makes an entrepreneur an entrepreneur. Successful entrepreneurs need to quit sometimes and there's 100% nothing wrong with quitting something that's not working. Let go of it. True success is knowing what to quit, when to quit, and doing it fast.


Myth 2: Entrepreneurs do exactly what they want to do.

Reality: As an entrepreneur, especially a solo one, you have to do a lot of stuff you don't really feel like doing, and maybe even hate doing. Our goal is to get you to a place where you're living 80% of the time in your zone of genius and 20% doing the shit that's just gotta get done.


Myth 3: Entrepreneurs know exactly what they want, and how to get it. 

Reality: Sister, I spend so much stinking time, just like you, figuring out what I want. Many entrepreneurs have no clue how to achieve their entrepreneurial passions, which is why I always recommend hiring a coach at some point in your journey.


Myth 4: Entrepreneurs are usually rich. 

Reality: Nope. Some entrepreneurs might become rich, but most don't start out that way. You don't need to be rich to start (I wasn't) and I strongly suggest you look into starting without going into massive debt.


Myth 5: Entrepreneurs take huge risks. 

Entrepreneurship is hard. And you are capable of hard things. Step into your spotlight, solopreneur.

“You’re so lucky, I wish I could dictate my schedule how I want.”

“You probably just work in your pjs and go on vacation whenever you want, right?”

“You must make a killing since you only have to pay yourself!”

“You must be so motivated, like, all the time!”


I know some of you may have heard some of these! I know I have. There’s a lot of myths around entrepreneurship. The reality is, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows and in the beginning when you’re working solo, it’s a TON of work. But like my biz bestie says, the alternative is shit. 😂
