A lot of people have ideas, but not many of those people are motivated enough to get off their butts and do something tangible with those ideas. That’s why entrepreneurs are so important; they show us that dreaming alone is not enough. If you want to make it, you’re gonna have to work for it, period. Nothing in life is free, except salvation. chances are…we all know someone who is an entrepreneur. There’s so many people out here trying to push their dreams forward and be their own boss. They’re quitting their jobs, they’re taking l’s in their love lives, and putting all of their earnings toward making their dreams a reality.
