I have a lot of value for you in this post so please read till the end. Whether we are employers or employees, developing an entrepreneurial mindset can be very profitable and can increase our value rapidly. What I personally find most interesting about the entrepreneurial journey is that we get to learn a lot about life, people and money which mostly lead to an all round experiential growth. Even if you are a professional and not an entrepreneur, developing an entrepreneurial mindset can set you apart from your peers and give you an advantage. Harvard Business Review has shared on several articles on the importance of employees developing entrepreneurial mindset and that innovative companies find employees with this mindset more attractive.
That been said, full-time entrepreneurship sometimes can be fun until we realize that we actually are not as experienced as we need to be. Our knowledge might not be at the same level as those who’ve been in business for longer years, this is where mentorship becomes useful. However, finding a mentor that will give you that needed attention can be almost unrealistic in today’s busy world. No need to worry though, if we develop a teachable and studious personality, we should be fine! Thank God for the advent of the internet and information digitization, there are tons of information online to up-skill ourselves in any area of business and career.
One of many very useful habit is reading some of the most informative books on business written by peak performers and top business leaders in the world. However, reading books may not be feasible for many of us because of the busy, fast-paced world we live in. But with the advent of audio book platforms like Audibles which is owned by Amazon. We can now listen to books on the go anytime, even more fantastic is that most of these audio books were narrated by the actual author. It’s like having these amazing people mentor you on-demand for free.

Psycho-Cybernetics bridges the gap between our mechanistic models of the brain’s functioning (clichés like “your brain is a wonderful computer”) and the knowledge of ourselves as being a lot more than a machine.
