Let’s discover the type of entrepreneur you are.
1. The One Who Doesn't Want To Work
Welp, if this is you. I want to be clear: You aren’t an entrepreneur at all because IT TAKES WORK. If you can’t work for somebody else, what makes you think you will work for yourself? If your already demonstrating lazy habits, imagine what would happen if you had the freedom to choose when to work?
The only way you could become an entrepreneur with this mindset is if your rolling in dough and plan on investing hundreds of thousands of dollars into something that yields a profit without any work at all like investing.
We all would love to make money without physically working and trust me, IT’S POSSIBLE, but it takes hard work, dedication, vision, execution, and patience. It’s not an overnight process. Most entrepreneurs struggle their first three years in business, so you have to be committed.
2. The Strategist
Awwww how cute, your a nerd :) I mean this is the best way! This is Dre in our business! You prefer to measure twice before cutting once. You take little to no risk and make calculated decisions. If you’re this type of entrepreneur, you take your time to gather information and analyze something before putting it out there. You feel like there’s no room for mistakes.

3. The Hustler
We’re cut from the same fabric you and I. We are motivated by our dreams and are willing to work hard to achieve them. Because of this, we often overwork ourselves and burnout. We tend to work hard and not smart. We are willing to get rid of all distractions to focus on our dream, giving no excuses to getting what we want. Failing isn’t an option no matter what it takes.

Disadvantages of Being A Hustler:
Even though many hustlers never give up, a lot of them are willing to try anything to succeed, which unfortunately means that they have a lot of hits and misses. Achieving their dreams takes a lot longer than most other types of entrepreneurs. If you are this person, you can adapt and learn methods of reaching your goals with less work. For me, I had to learn to work smart, not hard.
4. The Visionary
You have a clear vision of what you want your brand or business to be. You see the big picture and the end goal before even starting. You are the person who has a creative imagination and spends a lot of time thinking of the future. This is Dre in our business! Sometimes I think his ideas can be a little too ambitious, but don't tell him I said that, shhh!

5. The Expert
You are the person who has perfected a skill or craft to the point of being an expert. You are really good at one specific thing. People will easily trust you because of all your years of experience. You can get people results quickly in a particular area, making it easy to market. This is me in our business! Ya girl is a social media and branding expert!
