Business Week Online put together their list of top 25 young entrepreneurs in America.
Reading this article and looking at the types of businesses started by young twentysomethings will either inspire you or frustrate you. I think it does a little bit of both for me. On one hand, I say to myself, “If they can do it, I can do it”. And on the other hand, I say, “Dang, why didn’t I think of that?”. The reason I shared this list with you is to inspire you. Instead of us mourning over the fact that we didn’t think of such a great idea, we should read about these stories of young people starting businesses and use it as inspiration to start our own businesses. You know my philosophy about easily starting your own business. Treat yourself as a business. Focus on the talents and skills that you possess, and use it to build a business around yourself. No, you might not ever go public or have a house in the Hamptons, but you’ll be doing something fulfilling, and your income potential will be limitless.
I am convinced that those who are not content with making a salary the rest of their life will be wealthy when they grow old. Those that makes a salary but continue to find other streams of income will grow wealthy in their older age. Those that are wealthy when they are older, will put themselves in a position to give to others and make a difference in this world.
So, are you ready to start your own business? Are you scared about doing it? Look at these 25 people that have made it a reality, and think to yourself, “If they can do it, I can do it, too”.
