Everyone craves for power, fame, recognition and most importantly ownership of something meaningful. Today we are using softwares, infrastructures, technologies because many individuals broke the box of their comfort zone and established the vast empire which we are seeing at present, they pushed their limits beyond the boundaries. Entrepreneurs are those thinkers who could convert a brick into a mansion.

Entrepreneurs are the one who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk. They give birth to an idea, lead the team for its growth with the well-educated plan.

In last 2 decades’ new entrepreneurial term is in trend that is "Edupreneurs", those educational entrepreneurs who work as a bridge to fill the gap between what is being taught and what is industry's demand. So its very important for any individual who hanks to defeat the hunger of illiteracy, old ideas and those hurdles which comes under an educationist's way.

It's time to take a ride, to fit into an Edupreneur's shoes

1- Be ready to fall

The one who is scared of falling would never be able to fly. Be it an entrepreneur or any other professional, if someone is afraid of failure, they will never taste the success.The best one can do if they have failed in building blocks of their dreams, they should start it all over again. Instead of giving up, learn from the past mistakes, try to understand that whats went wrong and then come up with a new plan which will help you take your business to a next level without minimum flaws or no faults.

So, it's better to do wrong than doing nothing, and learning is an everyday ritual for an entrepreneur - learn from past mistakes correct it in the present and just keep moving forward, nobody can stop you from reaching on the top.

2- Listen, Learn then Lead

Listen: it simply means to hear attentively to everything which goes around you, related to you, beneficial for your business and knowledge. Never miss the flow, the more you listen the greater you learn. Learning comes from the listening, learning is necessary for any individual because then only you will be able to balance the situation, do the research and then implement your ideas for the successful career ahead.

Learned individual has the power to lead, an entrepreneur should possess the quality of a leader, only the leader can run an enterprise with a balanced mind and perfect attitude.

3- Be the Jack of all but master in one

We are never aware of the upcoming situation in our life. It can be good; it can be worse. It's good to be prepared for that, now the question is how you can be prepared about something you are not aware of. It is possible if you have enough knowledge of everything related to your business, so try to acquire the skills of all that which is relatable to your business. But never forget to be the master in one, you can be the jack of all but then you cannot survive if you don't have mastery in one particular job. So, have command in all but be the perfectionist of one.

4- Don't be afraid of questions, instead ask questions

Questions are not the problems they are the problem solver, but only then when you know how to utilize it according to the problems you are in. Well, if anyone is asking you the questions related to your business, your subject, your field, answer them with the confidence. The moment you will lose your confidence in answering or get scared of questions that only moment you will lose it all. If you are not aware of the answers then clearly say no or say I'll let you know soon, but never run away from the questions.The more the questions, the more it will help you in learning and building your business best.

5- Don't follow the trend, but establish the new one

Today's world scenario is like, everyone is following the one who is in front, so instead of following someone, make your own followers. To become an edupreneur, innovate something which is not popular.

Lots of students around us want to do something unique but due to the peer pressure or family pressure they follow the same path others are following, target those students convince them and their parents that what you are saying is best for their child's life. So always think something out of the box, extraordinary but which is relevant for others as well as for you.

These are the paths which should be followed by any individual to become the best edupreneur, but never forget to follow these '3Ps' which is applicable on all the other steps that are "Plan, Prepare and Produce".
