If you’re reading this article, then most probably you got fed up with working under someone, or you want to be your boss. Or if you just started your journey in entrepreneurship in India, then you must have been on a rollercoaster ride. A ride is full of adventure, dreams, vision, and fallback.
Being an entrepreneur requires a lot of effort and time. If you think that you can’t be an entrepreneur if you’re already in a 9-5 job, then your thinking is wrong. You can be an entrepreneur by starting a side business. It requires only 2-3 extra hours that you can get from your Netflix and chill time. Starting Entrepreneurship in India maybe not profitable, or you may face losses. But trust me, if you’re consistent throughout your entrepreneurship journey, then after a couple of years, you will achieve success in your start-up. That may give you the authority to leave your 9-5 job and be your boss.
Starting a business can be easy but what matters the most is consistency. Entrepreneurship in India is not everyone’s cup of tea, and it cannot make you wealthy overnight. There are some obstacles if you cross can result in hog heaven.
Motivation plays a key role in everyone’s life. If you want to be an entrepreneur, you are going to take a road which most people won’t suggest, and you may lack motivation. From day 1 in school to the day last in hospital, if you’re motivated you can cross any hurdle in life.
Now, the actual question arises, what is the meaning of entrepreneurs?
An entrepreneur is a person who is willing to give everything. Who has guts to take the risk, has an aim to build a company, and make money by increasing the brand value? In easy words, someone who’s starting a business is an entrepreneur.
An Entrepreneur is a person who is willing to do new things without fear. People think Entrepreneurship in India is difficult, but the actual difficulty is to carry your job lifelong. For an Entrepreneur, the difficult road is the simplest road that is difficult for people who don’t dare to start or think even.
“The thing most people don’t pick up when they become an entrepreneur is that it ever ends. It’s a 24×7.” – ROBERT KIYOSAKI
WHY PEOPLE WANT TO BE AN ENTREPRENEURS?
For an entrepreneur, freedom is the topmost thing. They do work like hell till they don’t get free time. For them, it may take a 2year or 5years, but they stick with it. But once their entrepreneurship starts working they become free. But people who are doing a job from 9-5 are bound with time. You must stay on the premises either you are enjoying working or not.
Be your boss
Everybody wants to be their boss, but it’s not an easy task to accomplish. To be your boss first you have to start from ground zero and as a leader, you take your team with you to new heights.
People live for money; they get up early in the morning, get ready in hurry for the office, and spend time in a stressful environment. Spend most of the timing in gossips and negativity. That is their daily routine, which makes them trapped in a rat race. But entrepreneurship can give you ample time to get up. You can get enough time and work till you want or love.
Don't fit in the corporate world
People who don’t want to work under someone can’t fit for 9-5 working hours. Who wants to hustle constantly in their life becomes an entrepreneur. The corporate world can’t complete your dreams rather they taught you politics for how to save your job.
New Version of Yourself
Entrepreneurship allows you to meet new peoples, tackle new situations, and learn how to deal with them. These things make changes in one’s personality and taking out a new version of a person which you are never before.
IMPORTANCE OF AN ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Like our new education system, they’re more focusing on job creators rather than job seekers. It is a big step in the Indian education system. An entrepreneur always wants to create a job for others.
Famous entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, or Larry Page has the vision to change the world. Not even our world, Space X is all about other planets. This type of vision is one of the most important characteristics of an entrepreneur. For example, when Steve Jobs started Apple, they introduced the iPod with 2000 songs approx. And now as the world is changing, you can store 20B+ songs on your iPod.
That is a huge contribution to technology by entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs.
Contributing to the Economy
The successful entrepreneur plays a vital role in contributing to the country’s GDP. Entrepreneurship produces new products, the product creates new jobs, new jobs create consumptions, and consumption drives entrepreneurship. People getting jobs are giving their part of the tax to a government that makes the country’s economy stronger.

If you start the journey of entrepreneurship in India and become an entrepreneur you never know what this can give you. The most important thing entrepreneurship can give is a valuable “TIME”. People are so much busy in their job they can’t even think out of their job box. With this valuable time, we can think about new things which turnaround our life.
The 1st author of The True Investment entered into entrepreneurship while doing a job but failed. According to him, he learns a lot of big things which he may never learn in a job. The major change he feels in his life is his transformation while dealing with new people.
In the end, I will only add if you wanted to improve your way of living there is no choice other than to become an entrepreneur.
