What it takes to be an Entrepreneur in 2010

To continue with my Seth Godin fanboy’ness¬† I wanted to share an interview with Seth that David Garland conducted today. David who I met and found through twitter runs a cool site called “The Rise To The Top.” It’s worth bookmarking in your RSS reader. David’s got good advice and has some great guests.

Key points I took away from the interview.

  1. The world is changing, are you a dispensable cog? If so, you need to become indispensable.
  2. Are you creating art or conducting “paint by numbers?”
  3. Are you an entrepreneur or a freelancer? For a long time I thought I was an entrepreneur but I’m working more like a freelancer. It’s time to change that.
  4. The lizard brain and why you can’t follow anyone else’s map to defeat it.
