    Still not sure if entrepreneurship is right for you?

      If you're just getting started and you're not still not 100% convinced that working for yourself is a smart career decision, here's a dose of motivation from a guy who's been there.

       

      Billy Murphy realized quite early on in his career that a traditional job wasn't for him. In his post Betting on Yourself, he talks about why entrepreneurship is the most sensible career choice for anyone who's hungry for more than the traditional 9-5 job.

       

      Main takeaways of the article are:

       

      • Betting on yourself (i.e. becoming an entrepreneur) isn't a gamble. Sometimes you’ll win, other times you learn.
      • When you work for yourself, your upside is uncapped. When you work for someone else there’s always a limit on the amount you can earn and do.
      • Your success in business is the result of the sum of your decisions or lack thereof over the course of your career. The more you’re willing to risk, the more you stand to gain.
      • Opportunities are never hard to find, it’s just that you see a lot more of them when you’ve played the game before.
