The Entreprenuerial Seizure

We Are All Infected

The Entrepreneurial Seizure is the moment where you realize you should… no, you absolutely must… start your own business. It is an unrelenting pressure you cannot resist.

What Is the Entrepreneurial Seizure?

Michael Gerber coined the phrase “Entrepreneurial Seizure” to capture the overwhelming emotions that surface when the decision is first made to start your own business. It is both an exciting and a fearful time. Understand what is happening when the “Entrepreneurial Seizure” hits you.

How the Seizure Happens

You either suddenly realize that you’re not being paid what you are worth, that you can do the job better than anyone around you, or that your boss is a fool. No matter the reason, you are out of there.

Why the Entrepreneurial Seizure Is Dangerous

The emotions inherent in starting your own business can carry you into uncharted waters very quickly. Not knowing what you don’t know is the most dangerous predicament. Stop and take a breath, and think about what you are getting into.

Preparing For The Entrepreneurial Seizure

We’ve all had it happen…that’s why we are where we are. Yesterday I couldn’t even spell “entrepreneur”, and today I am one. Discover how to become the best you can be at running a business that does “the Thing”.
