What’s the difference between entrepreneurs and  being self-employed?

Self-employment is basically the same as a job. Work an hour, get paid an hour. There is no creation of a solution to a problem and therefore, it’s not being an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship creates an ecosystem that starts with wealth creation for yourself, investors in some cases, employees and then your community. This creates a virtuous cycle entrepreneurs become investors, employees become entrepreneurs and so on.

Being an entrepreneur is more than starting a company but rather starting a micro economy that drives a community.

So… You want to be an entrepreneur? Go find a startup CEO, get them to hire  you. Choose to be part of an ecosystem before you create your own.
