  1. The power is within us to do whatever we want. I think because we get into the “four wall” mentality, we think we can’t live our dreams. I wake up everyday living my dream now. I’m an entrepreneur now. But, I’ve always been one. 
    Be great, do great, live great!
    Thanks for the continued inspiration!

    • I agree – to an extent. In its purest forms, entrepreneurs take a financial risk, right? But, there are many examples of entrepreneurial activity (starting a book club) that are valuable, but don’t create jobs in a literal sense.

      Can that person say they’re a book club entrepreneur? Sure. HBR won’t write a case study on them and they won’t headline a big convention, but there’s something about the personal risk and leap they took just to try to start something.

      I chose to read Matt’s image sort of in reverse. As in, because you’re an entrepreneur, you do the things above that – as opposed to because you do all those things, you’re an entrepreneur. It was more art than prose – at least that’s how I saw it.

  2. “If you’re contributing to something bigger than yourself, you’re an entrepreneur.” DEF MY FAVORITE!  It’s crazy how my days in the cubicle gave absolutely NOTHING back to the world. 

        • “Working on designing a poster”….???  WT_…? You’ve already done that!  Print the dang thing already!  Thanx for the inspiration, Matt … ;-)

        • The best way to find out is to try!! However, you need to take into consideration how acvite your flea/farmer’s market is. The one near me is constantly crowded!! So, ideally I would say YES it’s a great idea. But if yours doesn’t get much business then I wouldn’t recommend it. GOOD LUCK

  3. Am reading this hand picked awesome blog about eight months after it’s release! Definitely what anyone who is a dreamer and a doer would need to refuel…
