Treadmill Entrepreneurs Versus Startup Business Go-Getters

Some people are lazy, some people are not. Some talk big and dream big while others take their dream and turn it into a working plan of action. While most entrepreneurs have the desire to succeed and make the effort to turn their idea into reality, there are those who say they're taking their idea from concept to working product or service in market but aren't executing their plan. They're called Treadmill entrepreneurs, those making moves but going nowhere.

I must admit I laughed incredibly hard when I first heard this phrase. A fellow entrepreneur published the phrase as a direct response to people who persistently claimed they were hustling, making moves, or trying to make things happen, while in reality they were doing nothing entrepreneurial.

The difference between real go-getters and treadmill entrepreneurs is desire. It's the defining starting point for all entrepreneurs, and the stronger the desire the better. Sitting on your dreams and ideas is the equivalent of not dreaming at all. There's no action being taken or decision being made, so there will never be a result. In many cases, treadmill entrepreneurs are indecisive because they抮e afraid of making mistakes, so they avoid healthy risk taking which is a main building block in the traits of successful entrepreneurs.

Mistakes will happen in the beginning, but you can't let that stop your momentum. If making money is your end goal it'll never happen until you make your move!

Consider some of the great discovers and products that make everyday life much better. They never would have happened with the treadmill entrepreneur mentality. * George de Mestral, a Swiss inventor invented velcro after taking his dog for a walk. His pants got covered with cockleburs. He noticed their hook-like shape under a microscope and eight years later took action put together two strips of nylon fabric, one like the cocleburs containing small hooks, and the other like his pants, with soft loops. he pressed the two strips together to form a strong bond material we know today as velcro. Lightweight, durable, and easily separable. * Frank Epperson accidentally invented the popsicle in 1905 after using a stick to mix soda water and powder and accidentally leaving it outside in the cold overnight. Eighteen years later he remembered and made a move to recreate the incident using different fruit flavors. * Spencer Silver invented the Post-it in 1970 after trying to create a string adhesive. What resulted instead was an adhesive that stuck but then unstuck easily. They couldn't use it as superglue but it worked well for keeping his friend's marker stuck to a church hymn book. Because it easily stuck on and easily stuck off, they made moves to use it as the Post-it.
