Setting the Record Straight: Debunking the 5 Common Myths of being an Entrepreneur

What are you waiting for? That business idea that's been keeping you up at night isn't going to build itself. Go ahead, tell me why your waiting?... Mhmm, I hear excuses. Now, listen up. Today, I'm giving you the 5 common myths of being an entrepreneur. It's about time someone gave you the truth. 

MYTH 1

There is a set path or formula when building a business.

There is no set way to do any one thing. What works for one business will not always work for another. In fact majority of the time, it doesn't and for several reasons. One reason being different target audiences. When you know your target audience, you are strategic with your marketing. Instagram is a huge resource for businesses with a younger clientele. If my audience is senior citizens, I may want to take a different approach.

Another reason being people can smell authenticity if for whatever reason your audience can't connect with you because you're trying to tell someone else's story or duplicate their model to a tee then step aside. Why wouldn't your audience just get their information from the source? Your business provides the opportunity to leave your mark or share your unique journey. No two paths are the same. In my Interview with Anthony J.R of The Laidback Allure, he gives a fantastic example that debunks this myth perfectly. Check it out here.

MYTH 2

If you build it, they will come.

What good is a business, if no one knows it exists? Sometimes people have a solution or idea but wait forever to put it out or broadcast it because it's not perfect. Good thing that's not you. You have a great idea, product, or business. You have put in the hours setting up the website, building the sales funnel, and executing the perfect newsletter. But where are your clients? You're waiting for your audience to show up. Newsflash: They don't know you exist because you didn't market. You have to go after your target market. Where does your audience live? What are their top social media platforms? In order for a business to function, there must be consumers. Tell your audience you have the solution to their problem. 

MYTH 3

Lack of freedom.

Laugh! Now more than ever before, millions of entrepreneurs are becoming traveling nomads. There are not being limited to just an office space. The world is their backyard, and they're taking advantage. Maybe you don't define freedom as traveling the world. Maybe you would just like a few extra hours to devote to other interests. One word: Systems. Systems allow entrepreneurs to control their time.

MYTH 4

It’s all about me.

Yes, as an entrepreneur your business' success rest on your shoulders. You are the boss. You have the final say when it comes to making all decisions for your business. However, it's not about YOU.

Every great business knows it's about the customer, client, or consumer. Everything you do revolves around your ideal customer. Customer service and brand longevity go hand in hand.

MYTH 5

I need a business degree.

Another one. *DJ Khaled voice* Sigh, yet another excuse. Going to business school is a great accomplishment, however, it is not a requirement. In fact, some of the top business leaders never even finished school. Do a google searchA degree does not guarantee your business success. Only the value given to your customers can determine the longevity of your business not a framed piece of paper.

6 Things You Should Know About Growing Your Brand.

Entrepreneurship is not easy, and being a small business owner can be intimidating. Especially, when the goal is to stand out among a saturated market. Despite your industry, the mission is the same: brand recognition.

There's no doubting the importance of developing your brand. The more awareness or recognition your brand receives correlates with its potential for profits. After all, If no one knows you exist how are you running a business, again? 

The bright side: Despite the large corporations and saturated markets, it's been proven small businesses are the back bone of our economy. You are vital, don't let the numbers stop you from creating your profitable business.

There are between 25 million and 27 million small businesses in the U.S. that account for 60 to 80 percent of all U.S. jobs
— Forbes

I believe there is enough room for everyone and developing your brand does not have to seem like doing the impossible. 

Here, I have complied a list of helpful tips to keep in mind while establishing your brand and finding your unique voice within your particular industry. 


1. It Will Not Happen Instantly

It takes time. Patience is definitely something our society is lacking. With the rapid growth of technology and the ability to have everything within a click of a button the value of Patience has taken a seat on the back burner. What happened to: Patience is a virtue or nothing worth having comes easy.

One of the biggest mistakes I see business owners make is trying to reach their idea of success too soon. I'm all for a good productivity app, but nothing beats putting in the work needed to sustain the level of success desired. If you're not at the level you wish be consistent until your audience is aware. 

2. Create Amazing Valuable Content

This goes for any industry. I'm sure you've heard the saying, "Content is king." There's a reason for this, it's true. When you're giving your audience value, they notice, they pay, and they stay! Think about it. People pay based of their perceived value for a product or service. Luxry retailers are able to charge top dollar, why? The value being offered. We see examples of this everywhere: Ritz Carlton vs. Super 8 or Audi vs. Kia. 

And we have yet to mention the jackpot: Brand loyalty. Brand loyalty causes a member of your audience to opt for you among the competition, every time. This occurs when your audience has consistently been given amazing valuable content. 

 

3. Know Your Target Audience

This is crucial. There's nothing worse than wasting time, energy, and funds marketing to the wrong audience. You don't see many Disney commercials on the Hunting & Shooting Channel. Why? Because Disney knows their target audience is not there. One of the biggest mistakes I see business owners make is either: 

1. Marketing to the wrong audience.

2. Their audience is too broad.  

Many people assume the broader the audience the more people I can potentially capture for sales. When in reality only twenty percent of their intended market is opting in for whatever product or service they're selling. Yikes!

4. Identify Your Audience's Pain Points

It's study time! What are the top three problems facing your audience? +  How are you going to solve those areas? Humans are emotional shoppers, we buy based on the feeling a product provides or the one it claims to solve. As an entrepreneur, it's your job to create solutions for your audience's pain points. For more details, check out the full interview with Skylar Marshai and how she's solving her audience's pain points through her brand, here.

5. Tell Your Story

Your brand is a reflection of you. What's going to separate your business from others in your industry? Your story. And everyone has a unique one. People love to feel connected. Let your audience know your journey towards your business. Express your WHY to your audience, and you'll be surprised how many people will resonate + support you. 

6. Be Consistent! 

In order to build a brand, consistency is key! Everything from the message you share, product you provide, even to the brand's logo and colors. Think of your favorite brands, I'm certain one of the reasons you are a fan is because they never disappoint. They are probably consistently providing you with valuable content, right?  Aim for this, and there's no way you can't create an amazing brand! 


I want you to leave this post knowing you have a unique brand. It can be easy to look at the competition and become frightened. It's easy to see what someone else is producing and what to do the same. Remember, inspiration not duplication. Use your 'WHY' to guide you on your journey.
