Ali si podjetnik?

Na Žiginem blogu sem prebral, kako je Aleš Lisac na svojemu blogu :) opredelil podjetnika:

Podjetnik je človek, ki:

  1. opravlja delo devetih zaposlenih;
  2. gre lahko na dopust kadar koli, si vzame prost dan, kadar si to zaželi, v službo lahko pride ob kateri koli uri, vendar nobene od naštetih možnosti običajno ne izrabi;
  3. probleme, na katere naleti, reši, še na misel mu ne pride, da bi o vsem le pisal elektronska sporočila sodelavcem;
  4. iz nič naredi milijone, ustvarja delovna mesta, ustvarja izdelke, storitve, trg, ideje, ki spreminjajo svet;
  5. bolj kot v denarju uživa v svojih stvaritvah in delu;
  6. samo skomigne z glavo, ko posluša, kako modrujejo profesorji, politiki, sindikalisti, novinarji in ostali, ki pojma nimajo, kako je, če si podjetnik in moraš skrbeti za celotno gospodarstvo …;
  7. mora priganjati sam sebe. Nihče mu ne teži, če odlaša … odlašanje in neaktivnost vodita v propad podjetja in tega si podjetnik ne more dovoliti;
  8. ima pravico razmišljati o tem, ali se mu bolj splača plačevati leasing obrok za novega jaguarja ali zaposliti še eno tajnico. Jaguar je običajno cenejši in glede na prvo točko si mirno lahko privošči zaposlenega manj. No, običajno se vseeno odloči za tajnico in ne za jaguarja.
  9. v svojem delu uživa in nikoli ne bi zamenjal svoje vloge za kakšno drugo.

Takoj sem se spomnil na blog “The Lazy Way to Success” in objavo blogarja Freda o desetih znakih, da si rojen za podjetnika:

  1. You don’t want to hold a job. And you react to getting a job the same way a cat reacts when you try to give it a bath.
  2. You are anti-authoritarian. You can’t fathom the thought of being anything less than Boss, President, Chairman, Don, and/or Emperor.
  3. You have the uncanny ability to get other people to do all the work.
  4. You are always looking for and/or seeing economic opportunity everywhere and in everything. While at a concert, you occupy yourself by estimating the evening’s take and its gross margins instead of listening to the music.
  5. You spend more time and energy looking for easier, faster, cheaper, more effective ways of accomplishing something than if you just did the task outright.
  6. You would enthusiastically trade a life-time pass to Disneyland for one ride in the Vomit Comet. In other words, you would give up a secure, even-keeled, bland existence for a life that whipsaws uncontrollably between exhilaration and terror.
  7. You don’t see lack of money, lack of knowledge, and lack of experience as barriers to entry. You are also not deterred by the existence of formidable competition.
  8. You favor multiplication over addition and you lull yourself to sleep by calculating price-earnings ratios.
  9. You would happily invest your home’s equity and your life savings (and your mother’s life savings) in your start-up.
  10. And the Number One sign you are made to be an entrepreneur . . . When you project future earnings, your spread sheet shows that by Year 5, you can buy Argentina and sell it to Brazil.

No, če se najdete v kakšni točki in še niste podjetnik, še enkrat premislite… ;)
