What type of entrepreneur are you, really!?

A must-read for those who are new to flea market or any other forms of entrepreneurship.

Lately we have been receiving questions by our vendors regarding entrepreneurship.


So we'd thought we'd like to share our points of view on this.

When you google 'What is Entrepreneurship?' this is the first answer:




entrepreneurship
ɒntrəprəˈnəːʃɪp/
noun
  1. the activity of setting up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.

    "the new business opportunities have encouraged entrepreneurship on a grand scale"


There would be other answers that would pop up, from Wikipedia , from Youtube and all, but it is pretty clear that in additional to financial risks entrepreneurship also involves hard work - it could be either mental and/or physical.

And of course, because there are risks, there are therefore no guarantees that your entrepreneurship venture will be profitable.  


This includes the programs and advertisements you see on social media and Whatsapp messages that 'guarantees' you wealth and 4,5,6 figures income (that you sometimes have to pay an arm and a leg to discover their 'secrets', that will also require you to put in your fair share of hard mental and/or keyboard work - of which you may not also achieve the 'guaranteed profits' they sold you into).

Ahem... we'd like to take this opportunity to promote our FREE e-book (no-frills reading nor complicated download processes or sales funneling you would be subject to) that you can purchase at $0.00 here !

Read it. Read it again and again. 


We've written the book and made it easy for you to read and understand what flea market entrepreneurship entails,and what strategies you can use to help improve your business (note : 'helping to improve' doesn't guarantee you profits).
