Oh My, is that a tongue twister or what?!
But you gotta’ give me credit for creativity! I mean seriously, how many more rockin’ T’s could I have used lol?
Since I subtly skipped Bring IT! this week, I’m gonna’ ask you to Bring IT! all the same over at my friend Troy Claus’s house where he just published my latest guest post, “The Entrepreneur’s Journey – A Lifestyle Entrepreneur”.
Troy, who is also a Bonsai Boy and Danny Brown’s partner in crime over at Bonsai Interactive, has a series called The Entrepreneur’s Journey, where he invites different folks to share their stories and tell us what made them who they are today and the trials and errors they went through to get there.
This series is a definite must read for pretty much anyone looking to become self-employed or who is already. Trust me when I tell you that there are some exceptional journeys and loads of insight that we can all learn from.
When Troy Came Knockin’
I’ll be honest in telling you that when Troy first asked me to guest post for him and share bits and pieces of my entrepreneurial journey, I was honored and thrilled at the opportunity. But I was also hesitant in that although I’m self-employed, I had never really thought of myself as an entrepreneur. I had read the stories by amazing people such as Gini Dietrich and Neil Shepherd and was in awe by what they had achieved.
Like many – I associated the term with canny business sense and self-made riches. And believe me – I am everything but self-made…not just yet anyways!
But hey, if Troy thinks I qualify as an entrepreneur – then who the heck am I to argue with a smart man like that lol?! And believe me, this highly intuitive Marketing and Business Development Pro is nothing short of brilliant; not to mention courteous and kind.
So I went back and read Troy’s definition of an entrepreneur and realized that I did in fact possess several of the traits he explained. I may not have achieved what I’ve set out to (yet), but I have the determination, attitude and instincts that you need to get there.
Now there are several types of entrepreneurs and the one’s you’ll hear about most often are the Wealth Creation, Serial and Social one’s. And although I wouldn’t quite fit into any of those groups, there is another one – the most popular kind actually – that I do fit into quite well.
The Lifestyle Entrepreneur.
Yep, I’m a Trep!
And according to my dear Aunt Gini and a few others, I’m also a trip ;).
But enough about all that here.
How about you head over to Troy’s blog and see for yourself what I had to say about being a Trep? You never know, I may just captivate you and there could be a little party going on over there.
Oh, and make sure to leave your thoughts as well. You know how I love to hear them :D. Need I tell you that I’ll reply in kind?
Now Bring IT! to the Claus House!
