Wanting to be an entrepreneur and being an entrepreneur are two very different things. If I were a young and aspiring entrepreneur I would go out an hustle my face off in any which way possible. The best way to become something is to first act like something. Sell, sell, sell. Understand what it takes to provide value to somebody. Learn how to communicate your value proposition enough so that it registers with your ‘customer’ allowing for you to accomplish what you’ve set out to do.

Go out and find mentors. Go work for free and under people that can show you the ropes and serve as that point of contact when you need it. Learn the hustle and taste the game. Put yourself in the position to win. You can read as many books as you’d like, but they’re not going to make you an entrepreneur. The only way to become something is through doing.

And so, start hustling. Start doing whatever it takes. Even if that means selling the very shirt off your back.
