An entrepreneur owns a system and hires competent people to operate the system.
Thus, if you cannot go on vacation while your system runs uninterrupted, then, you have a job, not a business.
There are Ten (10) Facts About ENTREPRENEURSHIP You Need To Know About.
# 1: Entrepreneurship is a major means through which the saints can successfully control the wealth of nations so that the world would not control God’s people (Isaiah 61:1-5):
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
#2: Entrepreneurship is a major way TO LIVE in freedom
Entrepreneurship is a major way to live in freedom so as to be in total control of your time, finance (Money), family, ministry, business, career, etc. (This is because whosoever that controls your time invariably has full or major control over your life)
#3: Entrepreneurship is a way TO LOVE. (See: John 3: 16):
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If you love the people of the world, what are you giving to them? If you love God, what are you giving to Him?
#4: Entrepreneurship is a way TO LEARN
You do not know anything, if you think you know. Knowledge is not to be assumed but to be consciously acquired and applied. Those who think that they know too much to learn are too small to earn. The worst case in life is when you do not know that you do not know. This is the reason why many people are struggling through business and life generally. Do you want to consistently learn? Then, be an entrepreneur!
#5: Entrepreneurship is a major way TO EARN
No matter what your employer pays you as salary or wage, you cannot be richer than your employer in the same system. You make a lot of money for him/her. At the end of the business period, you would only receive a little fraction of the same money you made as your salary/wage.
#6: Entrepreneurship creates jobs
Are you not bothered about the unemployment rate of this country? Then, create jobs! Build businesses! Employ the unemployed! That will bring great joy to God because you are really fulfilling His mandate upon your life, here on earth. This also qualifies you for eternal reward and promotions.
#7: Entrepreneurship is also a major tool for terminating poverty in any nation
No nation is rich until it is productive. Any nation that is not productive will end up as a product-thief. The difference between what you produce and/or sale, and what you consume or purchase is a major determinant of your prosperity or poverty level. When what you are consuming is higher than what you are producing, you must end in poverty. But, when the reverse is the case, you must surely prosper at the long run.
#8: Entrepreneurship reduces crime and evil in the land
When the youths and the active aged populace of a country is not gainfully employed, chances are that a high percentage of them will take to crime, perpetuating evil and engaging in other social ills in other to make ends meet. This is because HUNGER stirs action, either positively or negatively. Check statistics!
#9: Entrepreneurship Adds To National Income
Any nation whose populace are productive must end up prosperous. This is because as the people make money from the land, they give back to the system that made them via tithes, offerings, taxes, grants, subsidies, rates, donations to the less privileged, among other giving and social responsibilities. How do you expect your members to bring in tithes into the church when you have not consciously taught them how to engage into productive and profitable activities in other to make money and make impact? Any church where the majority of her members are unemployed should first of all teach her members how to engage them into productive use in the society before asking them to give to the church, otherwise, the member would soon mistake the church as a deceiving and exploiting place instead of transformative church. Any nation whose populaces are majorly unemployed should concentrate on building her human capital, and not asking the citizens to pay taxes. Where would they get the tax money from?
#10: Entrepreneurship helps you TO LEAVE A LEGACY
No matter the amount of money you have stacked in your bank account, within or outside your country, if it is not adding value to the needy’s life, it has no real value. It has no reward. It can hinder you from making Heaven.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Matt. 6:24)
Hear me: When money is your major focus in life, you end up as a mockery to your generation. But, when serving God and the interest of His kingdom is your focus, you end up as a LIVING LEGEND, even years after you have gone to be with the Lord. Ask the Israelites why they celebrated David 3000 years after his departure from earth! And you will understand what I mean.
