The ART of Entrepreneurship
by Jason Torres,
This month’s column will serve as my final piece for The Art of Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneur Mind World. I want to sincerely thank Dianne Shaver for the opportunity to share my ideas, stories and thoughts with those who visit the site each month to read the different columns from the contributing writers. If you haven’t had the chance to connect with Dianne, consider sending her an email and introducing yourself because she is someone worth meeting! What she is doing in Charleston for the world of entrepreneurship is truly spectacular; her Entrepreneur Mind World platform is remarkable and helping so many current and aspiring entrepreneurs.
This column was dedicated to inspire those who are in the arts space with a desire to turn your art into a business. We talked about many topics that I hope you will revisit, I provided you all examples of people who are actually building successful businesses with their respective craft, and I’ve given you my personal thoughts as it relates to things that hold people back from pursuing entrepreneurship such as fear, doubt, and limiting beliefs.
I’d like to connect with those that still may be on the fence about making the shift to entrepreneurship. Now, I do realize that entrepreneurship may not be for everyone and that is okay. For many, their art serves as an outlet; it’s something that allows for them to disconnect from their everyday life and they don’t really care to turn it into a business. If that is you, that’s great! What’s important is that you continue to do your art and that it serves a purpose in your life.
Now, for those who are ready to make that shift, but for some reason there is hesitation, then here’s my question for you:
If not now, then when would be a good time for you to start?
Don’t wait. If you have any desire to get started, get started NOW. In fact, you probably should have started yesterday, but I’ll give you a pass.
I can’t even begin to share how entrepreneurship can provide so much for you! I know it has changed my life and I know it can do the same for you. Dianne Shaver and her platform have so many resources for you to get started, but it will require a decision from YOU to actually get things going.
Take a look at your watch. Do you see the time? Yes, that’s right. It’s NOW: O’Clock. The time is now to go after your dreams as an entrepreneur. Like I have said many times, not only is it possible, it’s possible for YOU. Now, go make it happen.
All the best to you all!
