Entrepreneurship Is Not about Money

by Francisco Santolo
November 2018

Embarking on an entrepreneurial journey is not about building companies, making money, nor leasing offices or hiring numerous employees. Consider entrepreneurship as the art of making things possible!

Entrepreneurship implies abandoning your comfort zone and taking an unexplored path to follow your dream, vision, and purpose. It is taking a leap of faith, facing fear and daring to fight in order to make our dreams come true. It means facing ourselves, our limiting beliefs, and others´ voices. It is trying over and over again, falling down and getting back up.

It is transformation, embracing the belief that the world can be different for us and for others. Embarking on an entrepreneurial journey is not a solitary quest, nothing stems from our individual actions, all of our achievements involve the participation of others!

Entrepreneurship is a very comprehensive discipline with intellectual, emotional and relational aspects, and it is something we can all learn. Yes, everyone! Regardless of our experience, training, business knowledge, money or available resources -we do not even need investors or taking risks as we are told. We need to nurture human relations, methodology, and to strengthen our knowledge on a daily basis-

Embarking on an entrepreneurial journey is simply making things possible and, in that sense, we all are entrepreneurs. The world ahead will definitively find more powerful individuals, with transforming capacity and multiplied impact through communities to which they belong. The world will no longer be hierarchical, led by corporations and governments. I see a world of moral authority and legitimate influence. And our actions today will determine the future.

It is time then for everyone to learn the art of making things possible.
