Later this morning, I have a meeting with a group of faculty who teach entrepreneurship outside the School of Business; we’re all part of the Entrepreneurship Cross-Disciplinary Program here at UNCG. One of our topics is to talk about how we can continue to spread the word about entrepreneurship across campus without funding from the Coleman Foundation.
Funny, in our Life Design Catalyst Program, we ALWAYS talk to the students about creating two paths in life – one path that leads to a job upon graduation, one path that has you creating your job when you graduate. If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I’m a big proponent of purpose/meaning exploration. In this context, I would argue it’s important to either get or create a job that matters to you and serves the world in a positive way.
I’m sharing today’s article because there’s a set of reflective questions that might be helpful in identifying what it is that you might want to do with your life. However, I was REALLY inspired by this article because of the following quote: “Entrepreneurship is not about building a great business, it’s about building a great life.”
Without further delay, here’s the article:
- “Why Do So Many Entrepreneurs Hate Their Lives?” – http://www.jonathanfields.com/entrepreneurs-hate-lives/
If you have time, take a few minutes to answer the 11 reflective questions in the article.
Once done, how will you build your great life, whether as an employee, an intrapreneur, or an entrepreneur?
