Entrepreneurship is not a job

You don’t apply. You don’t get a salary. No one picks you.

Bragging about how much money you’ve raised or what your valuation is a form of job thinking.

Entrepreneurship is a chance to trade a solution to someone who has a problem that needs solving.

Solve more problems, solve bigger problems, solve problems more widely and you’re an entrepreneur.

It’s tempting to industrialize this work, to make it something with rules and bosses and processes. But that’s not the heart of it.

The work is to solve problems in a way that you’re proud of.

” Are you trying to sell me something? “

For a culture that spends so much time and money buying things, you’d think we’d be more excited when someone tries to sell us something.

But we’re not.

The semantics are important here. What we really mean is, “are you trying to selfishly persuade me to buy something that will benefit you more than it benefits me?”

We’re goal-directed, risk-averse and self-focused. We don’t care about the salesperson’s commission, of course. We care about our own resources.

The magic happens when the goals are aligned, when the service component of sales kicks in, when long-term satisfaction exceeds short-term urgency.

When someone acts in a way that says, “can I help you buy something?” or, “can I help you achieve your goals?” then we’re on our way. And of course, it’s the doing, not the saying that matters the most.

I knew it

Sometimes, news comes along that confirms something we’ve wanted to believe all along.

It usually amplifies our skepticism.

But sometimes, it reinforces our trust.

The goal is to build a brand with a story that, when you do the work you most want to do, people say, “I knew it.” And when something untoward happens, people say, “that must have been an accident, they’ll fix it.”

Calling your finding

Many people are trying to find their calling.

But that doesn’t explain Marianne Money, bank manager, or Jim Kardwell, who owns a card company. Or Thomas Duck who started Ugly Duckling rent-a-car and Tito Beveridge who makes vodka. It doesn’t explain why people named Dennis are more likely to become dentists…

I’m not sure that anyone has a calling. I think, instead, our culture creates situations where passionate people find a place where they can make an impact. When what you do is something that you make important, it doesn’t matter so much what you do.

It’s not that important where. It matters a lot how. With passion and care.

Hiding

Your customers are hiding.

Your prospects are hiding.

You are hiding.

All of us are.

Hiding from change. Hiding from responsibility. Hiding from the prospect of feeling foolish.

We hide by avoiding things that will change us. We hide by asking for reassurance. We hide by letting someone else speak up and lead.

We live in fear of feelings.

We’re lucky enough that the things we used to fear don’t happen so often any more, so now we fear feelings.

We will rationalize in extraordinary ways to avoid coming out of hiding.

When in doubt, look in the hiding places.

Olly, olly, oxen free.
