Stepping out and doing your own thing can be scary.

Most don’t have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Others let fear stand in their way. But then there are those whose pain has become greater than their complacency and others who just know that they were born to do more than just take orders, make money for someone else, and take the illusionary “safe” career route.

It’s time to become an entrepreneur and become your own boss if you:

  • Have pain that has become greater than your complacency
  • Are tired of taking orders from someone else
  • Want to use more of your skills & abilities
  • Have a moderate to high level of risk tolerance
  • Are ready for unlimited upside potential (i.e., don’t fear success)
  • Desire to create a legacy or contribute to the greater good
  • Don’t want to leave this world with your music still left inside
