Consumers exist to buy things. That's it. Obey the law. Be a good citizen. Buy lots of stuff. Dull, boring, fat, dumb and "happy enough".
If you want more out of life then you need to become a Producer. You need to become someone that creates things. I don't care if it's boxes or brains. You need to create something and then find a way to make money with it.
You must come up with something new, something different. Something that serves a need and does it with style. Then all you need to do is figure out a way to make money with it and you're in business.
Too many people want to mystify it. They want to scare you by saying it's impossible. It's stupid. It can't be done. Go get that safe job. You'll never amount to anything. Be dull, fat and happy enough.
But starting and running a business isn't that hard. Will you need to do some research. Yes. Will you need to fill out forms? Yeah, lot's of forms. So what? It's not rocket science. It's paperwork. You'll only need to do most of it once.
If this already sounds like "too much work" then stop reading now and go find something stupid on YouTube.
There is nothing you cannot achieve. With hard work, determination, passion, a little luck and love, you can do anything. I know I sound like some low rent, day time TV host, but it's true. You can do it. You just have to try.
You can make it happen but only if you work. Only if you go after it. Only if you love it. Only if you are ready to do everything in your power to make your dreams come true. Otherwise, go watch something stupid on YouTube.
Nobody's going to give it to you. No one will walk by one day and decide to just give you your dreams. You need to work hard. But only at first. If you're smart, you'll figure out ways to let it work for you while you're off on a yacht somewhere.
So to all you entrepreneurs who are sitting on the fence -- GET GOING!
What the hell are you waiting for? Get started today. Don't know how to do it? Here's the best guide to help you get started. Don't feel intimidated. It's not really that hard. Mostly a ton of forms. Oh, and here's my thoughts on business plans too.
Stop waiting. Make it all come true. But only if you get started now.
What are you waiting for? Go!
