Last weekend was quite a busy one with some travelling and other programs, hence the late post. Nevertheless I’m now shooting a quick blog regarding some paradoxes in entrepreneurship. By the fact that you are reading this blog, I assume you know the meaning of the word paradox anyway. However, in case that word has never passed by or near you, simply google it and there you are! Thanks to the technological advances of today, people no longer have to carry along some humongous books called dictionaries to check out meanings and uses of some words. If you don’t have access to the internet, you better pray and also do something about it because if you don’t, the world might leave you forever.
There are paradoxical or contradictory issues in entrepreneurship that sometimes makes people think entrepreneurs are stupid. You know, one thing about this word stupidity is that it defines behaviors, actions, thoughts and words that appear to lack common sense or intelligence. The issue is that common sense itself may not be common. So, there are situations where a layman may judge an entrepreneur as stupid and lacking intelligence, yet the situations make a lot of sense while walking on the entrepreneurial avenue. So, this is a state of wisdom in an entrepreneur’s stupidity, or alternatively an entrepreneur’s apparent stupidity actually being intelligence due to the paradoxical or contrasting circumstances.
So, what are these paradoxes that make entrepreneurs stinkingly rich?
Ok. Didn’t I say at the beginning today that I was going to be brief? I think I have indeed gone beyond brief. Here is the closing then, with a swift ending.
Yours in entrepreneurship,
The Wise Entrepreneur
