What’s Holding You Back From Taking The Leap Into Entrepreneurship?
It took me over 7 years of working as an employee before I decided it was time to start a business.
I guess you could say I had a major fear of failure.
But what made me finally take the leap was looking at the potential upside of entrepreneurship. I didn’t realize that there was so much more to becoming an entrepreneur besides it being a way to make more money or to be your own boss.
The GenY Success Show (Episode 4): Josh Bauerle – Benefits Of Doing Free Work, The Financial Ins & Outs Of Business
Josh, like many other millennials, has had a lot of second thoughts on what he wanted to do in his career. He grew up in a family of entrepreneurs, but wanted to take a different route and work in law enforcement. After realizing the field was nothing like the TV shows, Josh quickly grew an interest in accounting.
He spent a few years freelancing and working with other CPA’s before starting his own accounting firm, CPA on Fire. Josh does the monthly income reports for John Lee Dumas at Entrepreneur on Fire and he does my taxes as well! This is a great episode if you have any questions about the financial aspects of starting a business, how business taxes work and/or how to save the most money in taxes.
