THE GRANDFATHER WARRIOR

As we move deeper into the new normal of our current pandemic-driven lives, we’re starting to see precisely how people are pivoting their careers and choices to provide as best as they can for themselves and their families. With that, we’re seeing a surge in the entrepreneurial spirit, and many are investing their time into realizing their self-employment dreams.

Although it might seem like these are uncertain times, entrepreneurship is alive and well. RIght now entrepreneurship is bright and lively and increasingly inspired. So, it’s important to be clear about what it means to be an entrepreneur, how that is different from being self-employed, and to bust the myths that might cloud the entrepreneurial image. What “freedom” do entrepreneurs truly have? What are the rising groups and how can they best be supported? What age is the most successful? 

To lay out these entrepreneurship myths I’ve brought on journalist, writer, and speaker, David Sax. 

David Sax is the author of The Soul of an Entrepreneur: Work and Life Beyond the Startup Myth. David focuses on the intersection of business and culture, topics that he has covered in his previous books The Revenge of Analog, The Tastemakers, and Save the Deli as well as in articles for publications like Businessweek, The New Yorker, and the New York Times. 

To understand how the soul of an entrepreneur runs deeper than what you’ve seen on Silicon Valley, download this episode now.

THE GRANDFATHER WARRIOR

“From humble beginnings can begin the seeds of a good solid life in a new land.” – David Sax

Highlights –

    • The biggest myth about entrepreneurship is that it is a game you play and if you do it right, you win.
    • The reality is that It is a life choice of “freedom” over security that never has an end. 
    • Entrepreneurship is self-help on steroids. 
    • African-American, Latina, Asian-American, and Native American women are the fastest growing groups of entrepreneurs in the US. 
    • The reason these groups don’t have as much growth as their male counterparts is because they don’t have the support they need. 
    • Most entrepreneurs are lifestyle entrepreneurs.
    • Failure is not always necessary for success. It can be very personally devastating.
    • Entrepreneurship is a spirit.
