Since I was a teenager, I have dreamed of being a business owner. Through all of my career dreams, one thing was at the center- I wanted to be my own boss. I think this boils down to the fact that I like to be in charge and if I need something done, I would rather do it myself.
As I grew older, I realized the other benefits of entrepreneurship. Business owners are the bread and butter of the country and give communities their sense of self. They keep jobs and profits within the community which trickles to other business owners and start the cycle all over again.
When I learned of A Billion Entrepreneurs, I knew I had to learn more.
A Billion Entrepreneurs is a movement with the objective to plant the seed of entrepreneurship into multiple generations and re-define the word, “entrepreneurship” to mean, “Taking responsibility for outcomes,” which ultimately means taking responsibility for one’s life and current situation. A major catalyst was needed to jump start this movement, and spark people to get inspired to find their purpose in life, with the end result of living happier and more fulfilling lives. Therefore “A Billion Entrepreneurs” the film was created.Their vision is to have an entrepreneur in every home. The group has decided to make a movie to launch themselves further into this mission, that will reach international dreamers. The movement stresses the need for entrepreneurs and the lifestyle they live. The freedom, security, and success they experience is something every family in the world should see first hand.
Filmmaker Jimmy Newson has a message for us all. “I want people to understand how invigorating it is to be an entrepreneur,” explains Newson. “I want to plant the seed of entrepreneurship into multiple generations and re-define the word ‘entrepreneurship’ to mean ‘taking responsibility for outcomes in all areas of life.The making of the movie needs further funds, so they have started an Indigogo campaign. Every one of us can help this group meet their goal. Even if you can't help financially (pledges range from $10 to $7000), I urge you to read about the project and share the message with everyone you know. Use your influence.
Maybe this will even give you the push to start your own business. I did and couldn't be happier. I wish you all the luck if you decide to jump for it. If you wait- be sure to sign up for their newsletter to help you get started.
I cannot wait for this movie to come out!
