  2. Hi Darren,
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience about how to become a successful entrepreneur.
    I enjoyed reading it and found it reinvigorating and encouraging.
    As an aspiring entrepreneur myself, I absolutely agree with all the points you have mentioned.
    From personal observation, I have also noted that to become successful, building a wide network and having a role model or mentor also helps in building any business.
    It is very lonely as a small business owner or online entrepreneur, so every little support goes a long way.

    Best regards,

    • You are most welcome Sue,
      Experience goes a long way but never let that be a stop in being an entrepreneur anyone can be an entrepreneur it’s a journey a journey with many challenges but great rewards.
      Traditionally, an entrepreneur is a person who organises and manages an enterprise often that includes the role of owner, manager and worker. And yes you are right and I appreciate your comment about support and the best thing anyone can do is seek out a mentor build or join a support network.
