5 Steps To Become An Entrepreneur

January 5, 2013

January 25, 2012 will be my 1-year anniversary as an entrepreneur. Yay! The 3 years prior I had spent so much time using Twitter for fun that people started asking me for advice. Eventually they offered money for that advice, and Ruugy Media was born. Later in the year I started HappiLabs, still in development but coming to a science lab near you!

Scientists as entrepreneursIt’s been an extremely fun and informative year. I’ve learned a lot about myself and life. So I encourage everyone to try to become an entrepreneur; our planet needs more innovators. If you’re thinking about it, here are 5 steps you can take to become your own boss, live your own dreams, and change the world:

  1. Read The Lean Startup. It’s a book that walks you through the idea of using the scientific method to develop your idea.
  2. Follow these people on Twitter for more tips & advice: @EntUnpluggd, @SecondCityCEO, @JamesBlute, @Technori, @LeanCircle, @EricReis. To follow everyone at once, follow my list of Entrepreneur Resources.
  3. Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. It won’t happen. Read more about this in a blog post by @EthanAustin: Stealth is for Bombers, not Startups.
  4. Subscribe to Entrepreneur magazine, only $1 an issue.
  5. Always believe in yourself, and have something or someone remind you of this. Often.

Go out and make it happen!
