Mitch Behm: Do You Want to Become an Entrepreneur •

Mitch Behm has more than thirty years of experience and passion for helping business owners succeed and spends his time running a private consulting firm in the Denver metro area. If you are interested in being an entrepreneur, here are some questions to ask yourself.


Are you passionate?

• Do you have an idea that no one can talk you out of? Getting honest, objective advice about your start-up idea can be difficult because the people you are likely to ask care about you and may be afraid to tell you what they really think. Mitch Behm tells potential entrepreneurs that it is crucial to get feedback from objective parties (e.g., advisors, experts, prospective investors who you do not have a personal relationship).


Do you have a business partner? • Starting your own company can be a lonely venture. Having a partner who you trust and has a skillset and experience complimentary to yours can be a huge benefit.


Can you afford to be unprofitable for a few years?

• Mitch Behm understands that starting your own company often means making personal sacrifices and below-market cash compensation. The truth is, even the most successful entrepreneurs had to spend their last penny they had before their company began to be profitable.


Are you unsatisfied with your current work/life situation? • Mitch Behm knows there is nothing more exhilarating and nerve-racking than being an entrepreneur. If you are tired of feeling like your current work is a bit dull and meaningless and if every day feels like a chore, then entrepreneurship might be right for you. Sometimes the intrinsic motivation behind an aspiring entrepreneur is simply because it is fun and seeking out fun can transcend everything else.
