My definition of success is constantly changing & evolving. I care more about making meaning than making money — Natalie MacNeil

What’s The Difference Between Normal Success & Entrepreneurial Success?

Success is a difficult thing to be measured. When it comes to business, what matters most is the quantitative success. Getting high numbers counts for the business to prosper. In reality, no one can define success in definitive terms.

The question arises; how can one understand the difference between a regular success and the success of the entrepreneur.

In different kinds of business lines, you have different ways of measuring success. For example, in sports you have the stars with their records in numbers, the stock market measures a listing with its stock value and so on. In business, it is undoubtedly the profits generated. Defining the success of a job is relatively an easier task than measuring the success of the business.

What you do and how you do it

Owning up the ship

The kind of choices you make

The journey is all yours

The kind of attention you give

Expect a windfall

A simple quote by Tony Gaskins says it all “If you don’t build your dreams someone will hire you to build theirs”. The choice is whether you want to do it for yourself and others or just want to be known to work for others. If you are raring to go, make your mark by creating your own business identity.
