    You can find hundreds, possibly thousands, of guides and posts about what to do (or not to do) for becoming an entrepreneur but the truth is entrepreneurship is like jumping into a sea without knowing how to swim. 

    Doesn't matter how much you read or prepare yourself, it would never be enough. In fact, you would be learning a thing or two everyday during your journey as an entrepreneur and this is one of the things which makes entrepreneurship so special.

    If you would like to become an entrepreneur then just do it and learn as you move forward. As for the lessons, embrace these 3 Ps - Patience, Persistence and Perspiration (hard work). Rest is easy :-)

    Leadership isn't easy. Neither is entrepreneurship. And yet, sometimes the latter gives you incredible insights into the former.

    1. Embrace finance
    2. Maintain an even keel
    3. Balance openness and self-trust
    4. Do what you love
    5. Get out there
    6. Address a pain point
    7. Teach that failure is OK
