Am I an Entrepreneur? (7 Signs You Are!)

Am I an entrepreneur

Maybe you’ve entertained the idea of working for yourself or maybe you catch yourself daydreaming about it or maybe you are already working for yourself! If you’ve asked yourself the question “Am I an entrepreneur??” It’s possible you are!!! 

I’m Micah and I am an Entrepreneur!

Did you know that before I was a health & fitness coach, I was a photographer?!?! I was so nervous and had no idea what I was doing when I first started my photography business over 10 years ago, but I couldn’t deny my desire for purpose, a sense of identity outside of motherhood, and extra income for our family.

My desire to change was stronger than my desire to stay the same. So I went for it, building my photography business from the ground up for 3 ½ years before pivoting to go all in with coaching 7 years ago. And now, I’m grateful every single day that I took the leap of faith and listened to those little nudges that told me to go for it.

I know I am an entrepreneur at heart, but what about you?!? 

Here’s 7 signs that deep down, you really wanna be an entrepreneur….

You want to have the freedom to work from anywhere. 

Maybe you’d like to live in a more remote place that has very little work opportunities, if you had your own business, you could! Or maybe you’ve fantasized about traveling the country and working on the road, if your business is online, you can do that!! Or maybe you just don’t want to have to dress a certain way or be put together all the time. Yeahhhhh that’s me. I love the workout clothes and sweats life. 😉

You want to work with people you actually like. 

Yep, when you’re in charge, you get to decide who you work with! What a relief, right?? 

You want to do work you actually enjoy! 

This is the whole point of being your own boss… you get to decide what you do to make money! What lights you up? What is a skill you have that you love doing that you could also make money doing? Even if it doesn’t feel like you could make money – I know you could! With today’s opportunities, anything is possible!! 

You are sick of waiting for the annual raise or bonus. 

Look, when you’re in charge, you get to decide how much money you make. Literally, there are no limits…only the limits you put on yourself.

You are craving growth and transformation. 

In my experience, entrepreneurship is the fastest way to work on your internal stuff… because it all comes to the surface! It’s the carpool lane to becoming a really awesome human and an incredible growth journey!

You just wanna do what you want, when you want. 

Time freedom is the best perk of being your own boss. No more time clocks, requests for vacation time or asking permission to leave early. Can you imagine??? It’s the BEST!

You have a deep sense of purpose to serve and help others. 

Entrepreneurs inherently do what they do because they want to help others. Living your purpose makes you feel alive and that energy is contagious!


Let’s Rock Entrepreneurship TOGETHER!!!

Part of my purpose is to share my business knowledge and experiences with other women like you, helping you take the leap, soaring into a new life for yourself and your family AND giving you a community to be a part of!

Are you feeling called to work with me more intimately?? I mentor women to build a business online, partnering with Team Beachbody and working on your own health and wellness goals along the way. Learn more about my Business Mentorship here.

Becoming an entrepreneur is not an ‘easy’ road… it takes a lot of self discipline, motivation and willingness to sacrifice some things. That’s why it’s better to do this with a community that empowers and supports you!!
