The very foundations upon which free and independent people are built upon are crumbling. Each of us now faces a unique set of dependencies which, if left unchecked, leave us dependence and vulnerable. The very freedoms we enjoy and provide us with the framework for entrepreneurial expression in the past may be eroding and jeopardizing our independence.
Below is a mind map for this post.

Over the last 150+ years, working in a job and attending school to prepare for a job have taken their toll on the entrepreneur psyche.
You’ve probably even seen it first hand. I now see it has deeply affected my ability to jump fully into many a GOOD Enterprise.
The challenges to becoming an entrepreneur are many.
- Where you were born
- Formal Education
- The Expert Imperative
Ways to overcome the challenges.
- Realize you don’t have a clue.
- Attach learning in a different way
- Go out and do what you need to make it happen.
Enjoy this episode of The Teach Jim Show as we discuss in detail the challenges of becoming an entrepreneur and what you and I can do to overcome them.
Best of success,
