Learning How to Think Like an Entrepreneur

Learning How to Think Like an Entrepreneur



“THERE’S ALMOST NOTHING you can’t accomplish if you set your mind to it.”


This was said by Ray Kroc, founder of McDonald’s Corporation, to a group of graduate students at Dartmouth College in March of 1976, as written in his book, “Grinding It Out: The Making of McDonald’s” of 1977.


These students had asked Mr. Kroc to address them on the art of entrepreneurshiphow to pioneer a business venture.


The rest of the quote by Ray Kroc goes on to state,


“You’re not going to get it free, and you have to take risks.  I don’t mean to be a daredevil, that’s crazy.  But you have to take risks, and in some cases, you must go for broke.  If you believe in something, you’ve got to be in it to the ends of your toes.  Taking reasonable risks is part of the challenge. Its the fun.”


This particular quote strikes me as it breaks down the very things that most people don’t do.


Case in point: When I told someone about a potential way to make some money online, which this person desperately needed, her response was that she doesn’t “get involved in anything that requires money upfront!” (I was only talking about $50, mind you!)


Risk-taking? Forget about it!


To her, needing money upfront for anything constituted a scam.  


WHAT?!  Right away, I knew this person was not business minded and was not worth talking to anymore.  Moreover, this person is what they call a straight up freebie-seeker.


Freebie seekers are NOT business people and are always looking for something for nothing.  It made perfect sense why this person is always broke!


That’s why I refused to waste anymore time on this person after that ridiculous statement she made, which she believes is true.  These kinds of statements are consistently made by broke people. It’s how they were conditioned to think!


This person does not need more money right now.  What she needs is a reprogramming of the mind – of the way she thinks!


The truth is, McDonald’s won’t even talk to you without $250,000 free and clear in the bank.  You think they’d ever give away a franchise, something they get 7-figures for, for free?  Its enough to make you laugh out loud.


But, according to my misinformed friend, owning a McDonald’s franchise would be a scam to her, because they want $2.5 MILLION upfront.  Yet she obviously knows how profitable McDonald’s is since I know shes taken her children there to eat.


These kind of things don’t make any sense to broke-minded people and they can’t help it.


If you re-read Ray Kroc’s statement above, you will probably realize that most people you know probably think like this as well, no matter how ridiculous that line of thinking may be.


Ray Kroc definitely narrowed down the percent of people willing to do what he said to about 2%.  But aren’t the 2% the ones who make all the money? They sure are – and that’s the reason why.  Because they believe and accept the things Ray Kroc mentioned. They simply do not think like broke job-minded people!


My point of all this is that if you are not looking for something for nothing, and you understand that nothing is free, that you must take risks, and would like to see how you could own your own franchise online and think like an entrepreneur, then go here:


If you’d like to go from the 98%, who are always broke, to the 2% who live according to their own terms and not someone else’s, click below for more information:
