The accidental entrepreneur?

I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to be an entrepreneur or not, coming into this class. I still don’t.

What I know is, I don’t think I want to endure the mindless drudgery of work life, so I guess that puts me on the “I do” side of the fence.

Initially I joined the class with the “investor” mindset in mind, as there was some mention of it in previous TE classes. Had a surprise when Prof Pamela told me that she had pulled that section of the class and was focusing solely on entrepreneurship.

Well then, no choice right?

So here I am plunging headfirst into something that…I’m honestly not sure what I’m getting into.

Still, I’ve met some very amazing people in this class, people with huge drive and ideas…and it seems like that we may just make something happen, along with Prof’s guidance. Something about them is clearly rubbing off onto me, because as much as I dreamt of being my own boss in the past, I never really knew what I wanted to do.

(And boy did I not know it would involve so much work)

These 13 weeks have equipped me with skills required to start up a business, as well as a lot of additional know-how that’s greatly helpful along the way. Beyond this, it’s all up to us (or me)!
