Getting rich and famous are almost taboo these days.
Like a lot of busy solopreneurs these days, I have a few tools that are in auto-pilot on my Twitter feed @michael_neely. Yesterday, I saw the article “5 Wrong Reasons for Becoming an Entrepreneur” by Jayson Demers on my feed from Entrepreneur magazine and I had to read it. I don’t keep it a secret that I am a big fan of Grant Cardone and his various works on entrepreneurship and sales training.
To be fair to Jayson, it seems to me that he is writing about primary motivations to starting a business and becoming an entrepreneur. I agree with him that starting a business for the sole purpose of getting rich probably won’t work. If you want to get famous, I would turn to Hollywood (or another film-making city like Atlanta), dropping a CD, devoting your time to become a “reality TV” star, or even social media. Even then, it won’t happen overnight.
