How to Be a Real Entrepreneur

For so many aspiring entrepreneurs, the road stops at an idea. Sure, they may build a website, design a logo, maybe even create a comprehensive business plan. But until they make that first sale, they’re still just a wantrapreneur – that is, someone who spends their time and money on everything else except creating a real business.

Real entrepreneurs, on the other hand, care about one thing: building a product or service that people want and making that sale. In this video, Tony talks to appSumo CEO and serial entrepreneur Noah Kagan, who shares his personal tips for building a business.

Noah knows that the cards are stacked against you as an entrepreneur. But the real reason most businesses fail isn’t luck – it’s failure to execute. Failure to take action. As Tony says in the video, “Knowledge is not power, knowledge is potential power. What you have to do is put it to work.” Most people overvalue their ideas in business and undervalue their execution. Everybody has a great business idea, but how many people actually get it done?

Execution trumps knowledge any day of the week, because most people aren’t willing to do the work. They’re not willing to make the tough decisions. These are the traits of great entrepreneurs, not just wantrapreneurs.

What else do real entrepreneurs know? They know that they must focus on their passion, not their product. They know that passion is what keeps you going when you hit roadblocks. They choose to start a business doing something that they would be willing to do for free – because that’s how much they love it.

They know how to feed their minds with the right material and create empowering habits. They know how to focus – and they know how to fail, productively. And they know that the people they surround themselves with make all the difference, including their romantic relationships.
