Startups: Do You Have it in You?

AustrianStartups’ Daniel Cronin on what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

Recently, I’ve noticed that lots of young founders confuse entrepreneurial life with the startup “lifestyle”, as in networking, pitching, parties and the like. Since we want people to keep living the dream and live it well, I’ve put together a primer on what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

Typically,
entrepreneurs can live with high degrees of uncertainty.

They feel responsible for their work’s outcome.

They think for themselves.

They are willing to work really hard.

They learn to effectively manage their emotions.

They can deal with external problems, internal anxiety and increased stress.

They push themselves to keep going despite people turning them down.

They value freedom more than stability.

So, do you feel ready to for an entrepreneurial adventure?
