Fool’s Day – The entrepreneur’s day?

7 Comments

April Fools’ Day, sometimes called All Fools’ Day, is one of the most light-hearted days of the year. Its origins are uncertain.

My view it is entrepreneur’s day? why?

Simple. Rest of the world think Entrepreneur is either a “Fool” or keeps on fooling the rest of the world.

Look at the below vertical wise thought process:

Family/Relatives:

This guy is a fool. The job was good with safely and security in life. Unnecessary he puts himself and family into trouble (if left job and started a venture to realize the idea).

This guy is useless. He could have opted for a job was good with safely and security in life. Unnecessary he puts his career into stake.  (If started a venture after completion of study).

Friends:

He has grown big now. But he neither spends money in treating us not help us to grow in his company. He forgot our past friendship. We are only Fools since still thinking on him.

Ex-Office Friends:

Clever guy. Saved lot of money during job. Now enjoying life with independence as he is not answerable to anyone. But he wants to make us Fool keeping himself low in profile.

Business man:

Nonsense person. Keeps on venturing into ideas. No sense of business, ROI and profit. He cannot be successful in life.

Fellow Business Partner:

Always talks big beyond reality. No idea how to make it successful. No control on situations. Always freaks out. Wasting my time spending time with this Fool.

Employees/Subordinates:

Boss always exploits us. Business is in full swing. But he always keeps on crying and deprive us. We are not Fools even though he tries hard to prove us so.

Neighbors:

He is big shot now. Earns lot of money in business. But do not like to spend social causes in the locality. He forgot his past and root. No point fooling us.

Customers:

Now he is a big business man and sucks us by premium. He keeps on talking of competitive prices, but never extended any benefit in terms of discounts or free services. We are not fools. Next time we need to see alternatives beyond him.

** Here he can be she also – Nothing gender specific. All comments are not always true. There are exceptions. But generally these are the inner thoughts against Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneur is alone in his journey. Only an entrepreneur can understand him/her.

Lets celebrate Entrepreneurship.

  5. I came to know about this post through wordsmith university. I must say I have not yet read anything like this in my life. While I pride myself being an entreprenuer(really an inconsequential one), I have always lived these comments in my life, so I can relate to them and testify that all these are quite true…………..
