What is needed to be an entrepreneur?

We are going to embark upon a journey through the world of e-myths/BS/Crap and debunk them to help you avoid falling into the limiting trap. Would you like to stay up to date on the business and marketing news of the week visit The Daily Grind.


First, let’s take a minute to talk about what an e-myth is. An entrepreneurial myth, or e-myth, is an assumption that anyone can succeed at business with:

  • Desire

  • Some capital

  • Projected a targeted profit


This sounds great, but it just not realistic. Think of starting a business as a marathon. Sure, everyone starts out of the gate at a record pace, but after a few miles, people start slowing, and some drop out entirely. Building a successful business takes stamina and agility.

The reality is that there are many different facets to a successful business and none of them can be ignored if you plan to find success.


Let’s take a minute to talk about an entrepreneurial seizure. This defines the roller coaster of emotions that comes with starting, nurturing and the potential failure of a business.

The emotions that occur, in order, are:

  • Exhilaration

  • Exhaustion

  • Despair

  • Sense of Self-loss
