5 Ways Future Entrepreneurs Can Turn Vision into Reality

When I was young, I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Most of my school friends wanted to be doctors, lawyers or firefighters. Not me: I was driven from childhood toward entrepreneurship. I sold lollipops from my backpack when I was in grade school; being a serial entrepreneur was a gift from an early age.
In spite of trying to find a ‘traditional’ field for my future career, I can recall sitting in an Accounting 101 class and tuning out because I imagined that someday, I would just hire an accountant. I wanted to use my vision and strengths to do what I was good at; then I would hire people who were more passionate about those subjects that didn’t interest me.
I’ve spent the past 20 years building multiple SEO businesses, and I still think of myself as more an entrepreneur than SEO strategist. I’ve learned a few things along the way (I’m still learning new things every day), and I’ve certainly made my fair share of mistakes over the years. So I’d like to encourage future entrepreneurs with wisdom I wish someone had shared with me when I was considering this journey of bringing my vision to reality.
