Written by Shaun Johnson. As a millennial, there’s never been a better time to pursue entrepreneurship. In fact, even if you don’t pursue it, entrepreneurship is chasing you. No matter what role you play in today’s economy, having an entrepreneurial mindset is key for not only your success, but also for your survival. Being entrepreneurial can mean creating a side hustle for additional cash, building the next Facebook from your dorm room, freelancing across multiple clients, or being more “intrapreneurial” by taking risks with new opportunities inside a company. Let’s talk about what the entrepreneurial mindset looks like and how to get into it.
