I was on a podcast y’day and the host asked me why I got into entrepreneurship. And it reminded me of how I used to get fascinated by manufacturing factories and used to think – one day, I want to build a “factory”. 🏭
Well, that dream never came true 🙁 as I got into Software 😊. And that got me thinking – that’s a new reality.
Today, if you need to start a Software or Internet-enabled business, all you need is – a creative mind and a laptop.
You don’t need a fancy office or expensive machinery. Almost anyone can be in business.
You don’t need unions and departments. One person can do the job of many.
It’s probably easier to start a Software and Internet-enabled business as tools are accessible a click away.
You don’t have to work 9-5. You can work on your own schedule.
You don’t have to take huge debt and a big risk. You can have little savings to get started.
You don’t have to go door to door or trade-shows to sell your stuff. You can sell to anyone in the world by sitting in your home.
It’s a new way of working.
And it is very relevant and important in today’s unemployment situation.
Don’t think you’re starting a “business”. For some people, that is daunting.
Think it like – you are going to work for yourself.
