Employee to Entrepreneur

Getting laid off is not always a bad sign. As a matter of fact, it gives you ample scope for redefining yourself and conceptualizing the American dream. If you fall under the category of unemployed or laid off, there is nothing to worry. You have the admirable option of becoming an entrepreneur.

You have two ways to become an entrepreneur - Start a business or Buy an existing business. The options will work according to your convenience and the nature of the business you are going to indulge in. Initially, the idea of becoming an entrepreneur will be vague. To assist you, we have provided a few success stories where there is a visible transition of an individual from an employee to an entrepreneur.

  1. Amos Winbush III
    Amos Winbush was a musician before he became an entrepreneur. While he was going strong with recording and writing strong, he decided to step aside and start a mobile technology firm called CyberSynchs.com.
    The company's service is universal mobile synching. It allows the users to synch their mobile applications to the web without USB chord. The users have to sign up and have an account. The requested applications are sent to the user's secure account. Users can manage this by using the web only.

    The idea for such a company sprung forth when Amos's mobile crashed and there was no wireless carrier to assist him. From then on, he decided to help people who go through the same situation by starting the mobile technology firm. The business was challenging and he loved to face it. Amos also states that starting a business and developing the company was a great move. It gives a good reason for someone to focus on issues and a determination to resolve them.

  2. Amos Winbush III's Quotes -
    "There are things you cannot change, but how you operate your company is not one of them."
    "Make your own choices and listen to that small voice inside. Remember, it does not have to be perfect -- just do it and get it on the market. Don't waste time."

  3. Andrew Cronk
    Andrew Cronk has made his mark as an entrepreneur by quitting a company he worked for and starting a new business. He is the CEO of Cameesa, a company that facilitates the connectivity of clothing designers with their patrons. Cameesa is a DBA for the parent corporation called Digital Stampede Inc.

    Previously, Andrew worked for a major US electronic company as an embedded software engineer. He states that it was tough to work in a company that did not permit creative thoughts and new ideas. Hence, he decided to quit and start a business on his own. Cameesa was built from the scratch as he had no interest in buying a business. Andrew faced challenges in his new business as he did not know the aftermath of his decisions. There was an initial fear of doing something wrong. However, he states that failing to act is worse than acting wrongly. Through sheer dedication and passion for creativity, Andrew Cronk has carved a niche in the entrepreneurial grounds.

    Andrew Cronk's Quotes -

    "You don't learn anything when you make no decision, but when you make a wrong decision you know what not to do next time."
    "There are no precedents; you have to create them."

  4. Bryan Heathman
    Bryan Heathman is the founder of Made for Success, an audio recording company, which he started after losing his job at a manufacturing company. He has also written a book that assists entrepreneurs to make the most of e-commerce websites.

    Bryan was working at a manufacturing company which supplied high speed digital printers to the photographic industry. Eventually, there was aa downward slide in the photo business. Annual sales kept declining. Though Bryan was the VP of Sales and Marketing, he feared that he might lose his job. Without wasting time, he started making plans for an own business. This led to the birth of Made for Success.

    The company is based in Seattle, Washington. It distributes audio recordings from professional and successful people. With a high tolerance for risk and apt for skills combined, Bryan has managed to turn the company into a profitable venture. The company has 3 revenue streams -

    1. Physical retail distribution into mass merchants
    2. Digital distribution network of audio downloads in the form of MP3 audios.
    3. Direct to consumer website operated at www.MadeForSuccess.net

    Bryan Heathman has the opportunity to work from home, which has given him an additional benefit of writing a book and start a consulting practice, assisting companies in building e-commerce websites. The book is based on conversion marketing and provides an insight into the techniques of converting visitors into buyers.

    Bryan Heathman's Quotes -

    "One challenge in starting a company is the isolation associated with not being in an office environment."
    "I have a high tolerance for risk, combined with the skills associated with integrating small companies into large companies."
