is Entrepreneurship a cool job?

Today I came across an articles on the web which really inspired me to write this article.

The Next web conference Key note  by  Phil Libin

While I was watching the Video Keynote at The Next web . I was thinking  how is it related to the quote which I posted on my twitter two days back.

Here is the quote by – Former President Harry  S Truman

“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit”

When You are entrepreneur you carry more responsibility than  any one in the organisation for outside world it looks like you are the boss or (CEO), You can work at your flexible time and You dont have to explain/report to any one.

But the truth is different I totally agree with what Evernote CEO said in today’s conference at The Next web.

As an entrepreneur you are reporting to all employees and stake holders of the company including clients,vendors and so on.
As an entrepreneur yes you can work at your flexible time but any 18 to 20 hours of the day you choose.

If you have to make money or work at your flexible time or you are bored don’t start an enterprise.
If you feel there is void some where that can be filled by your service or product then go ahead and start an enterprise.

in my view Entrepreneurship is some thing, one starts with a vision to fill the void with a service or product.
If some one is starting an entreprise with doubts and questions  how they are going to survive .What they have to face while running the business
then they can never start a business . If one thinks about the need of the service or product strongly then his gut feeling says he can do it ,then he should go ahead and start.

As my writing starts is Entrepreneurship a cool job  in my view it is not a cool job at all , Entrepreneurship is a most difficult job I know which comes with lot of responsibilities. But this job will be chosen by high aspirational people to achieve some thing by  sacrificing lot of things.

As this quote say “It is not what we take up, but what we give up , that makes us what we are”  in my view Entrepreneurs give up the time ,money , effort
to build a successful enterprise . Successful Entrepreneurs will work with only one thing in the mind that is  building a great Enterprise every thing else will  fall in right place.

A successful enterprise creates an echo system with employees ,clients and vendors who will depend on this enterprise . This will happen only because the sacrifices which entrepreneur made towards pursuing the dream of his own. I totally agree every thing else also will play a part in building a company like Team,Money,Strategy and leadership and so on. But in my view entrepreneur is the one who took the first step to create all this

If some one is thinking to start business they should choose between the comfort of paycheck vs pursuing their vision of entrepreneurship.
If he is ready to sacrifice almost every thing to build a great enterprise that person will not leave a stone unturned to make that enterprise a Successful one.

I enabled post by email when I first created blog.  There was a secret email address which was generated by wordpress . I never used that email really except once for testing in fact I posted a test blog “Testing from Email” around Feb 27th 2010. That email address was exposed some how some where. If you send to that email it will directly post in the blog. At last after 50 minutes I can relax saying my account was not compromised .

The lesson learned dont enable email posting into your own blog. If you do just make sure it is not exposed any where.

Just now I removed Email Posting Feature from my blog lets see if those guys come back …?

This last 50 minutes reminded my olden days when I was working as Production DBA going through production issues…

Thank you.
