  • I have a question,
    It made me think of the right mindset toward someone's goals.
    Should it be, I want to do XYZ and I don't care if it will be done by building my own company or working within someone else's company?
    Or sould it be, I want to make it in my way. Building my own company.
    I just think that your pation should lead you to the right choice and I want to know what you guys think of it.
    Thank you for another great one Valuetainment team!

  • I've learnt so much about leadership from this channel thankyou Pat. God bless you. You've inspired me to not give up on my dreams even when other people think it's not possible or too lofty to achieve. I was once in a very bad place and it's true that hard work, dedication and persistence is the key to success. I feel like everyone knows this to be true on a subconscious level but aren't prepared to do what it takes to reach it. I am one of those people that loves people more than money. Your video on the 1% and how you can't measure someones heart in regards to Tom Brady resonated with me on a profound level. This is something I have suspected to be true for a while and it's encouraging to know other people think the same thing.

  • Great Video, love that you made this video I can share with my friends, that don't want to become Entrepreneurs.
    Love the story from Germany, your entrepreneurial journey started because of a girl, CLASSIC πŸ˜€

  • 1 BEST TIP/ADVICE for Pat is that he may want to do 'brain dump' or random writing of thoughts upon rising in morning and before falling asleep. He has an ever-running mind, many thoughts that keep his energy going, going, and going! Give him a mic and he can speak about every aspect of business, products, finance, success, psychology etc. πŸ™‚

  • /Intrapreneurship/: "It's not just about seeing the connections and opportunities, it is also the act of weaving possibilities together to create something new and exciting." – Dylan Sherlock! Thank you for all these advice! Such a motivating video! If we're not entrepreneurs, we could probably be intrapreneurs! πŸ˜€ Maybe you guys might have seen me on other videos but anytime I write a comment, I always tell my story with it so people know why I am saying what I am saying πŸ™‚ – also to keep inspiring other people because for me, reading other people's success journey is so motivating. πŸ™‚ We own a cookie shop business in our college town. When we first started it, we were living in our car with very little direction, just a huge passion to be successful. We just graduated college as well. We started a cookie shop out of a local bagel shop in their off hours at night. We were living in our car in the parking lot of the shop at the time with my boyfriend, Bran. It was a crazy experience but it worked! We became a success! And how we have our first storefront location (a second launching soon!) We started it to fund a year long backpacking trip around the world and to be successful while living the life of our dreams.

  • Was also an intrapreneur who was pushed to become an entrepreneur! I can't thank the CEO who rejected my ideas enough! Im now selling my services to my old company and the horizons are wide open. Business is where its at guys.

  • This video describes me. The CEO of a company that I worked for told the HR Director, who then told me that the CEO said about me: "That guy will be running his own company some day.". However, with my family obligations, I didn't feel I could dedicate the resources. On the side, I created software inside the company to help manage their insane workflow of the projects and communicate amongst teams. This software ended up being the life blood of how the company ran. To their credit, the company gave me stock in the company, and when it sold, I made a lot of money. I now seek out companies with the properties you listed. However, most big companies have their compensation models wrapped up in red tape and tradition and it can take years or never to be compensated for helping the company tremendously. It's hard to find a company with all of those characteristics. However, I'll often settle for the first three, because I am not happy if I'm not building something and making the company better. Great video. I am going to show it to my son.

  • Pat, you have to make sure people read the 48 Laws of Power when you suggest intrapreneurship. My career was spent as one, and I often came away bewildered at how poorly I was treated after doing great things for the company and watching low contributors get promoted above me until I read that book. It's super easy to "outshine the master" as an intrapreneur and hurt yourself and usually it happens without warning because the management is responding poorly to the "threat" of your intrapreneur behavior.

  • True, my bf doesn't really want the entrepreneurship, but he totally fits the intrapreneur description and has been for as long as I've known him. I'm the opposite lol I like building stuff from the ground up.

  • I think another alternative of the intrapreneur is when you are working in a company and you get commission on your sales on top of your salary. So you have the motivation to go for more, produce more, and eventually get more back

  • Most of entrepreneurship is a mindset more than a rule that you have to do this one thing. Being an entrepreneur is all about creating something that others need/want. It doesn't matter where you do it or how you do it!

  • Best channel ever! This channel has really shown me the importance of the skills needed to become an entrepreneur, thank you so much and keep the videos coming, die hard fan here from Thailand!

  • A video for new entrepreneurs. Different ways to become a entrepreneur, ways to find ideas πŸ’‘ tools for both new entrepreneurs and current entrepreneurs and different ways to validate and experiment your ideas πŸ’‘

  • The ultimate wingman for any CEO.

    "Right behind ya Shepard”

    So hype!
    I'm in a weird spot, as I'm a very risk aversive person with a shitty upbringing, essentially noting to fall back to, ye still motivated to become an entrepreneur. But never was a good leader… can rally people for an idea or task… but not really leading the charge, more of a top lieutenant type… and you just made me realise how to make the most of it.
    This might get me the base capita and skillset to go all out with my wildest visions… or fall in love and stay loyal to a company till the very end.

  • Hi Patrick, and Hi all, I loved this episode and the way you put the Alternative to Entrepreneurship in perspective, I would like to add to this subject something we could take in to consideration regarding the "Intrapreneur". The matter of fact is that the "Intrapreneur" can always choose his environment. And to be more specific, I believe that the best "Entrapreneur" must use all his "Entrapreneur" abilities to build the team he needs. The "Intrapreneur" can always join the best team that needs him. Much love to all.

  • Thanks Patt!! You just told me all I need to foster intrapreneurship. This is a great video for entrepreneurs to know what type of company culture they need to foster in order to attract amazing talent, and grow the company beyond the initial growth spurt.

  • Heads up, there are a lot of companies out there who DONT like intraprenuers, people who want the company to grow and be a part of the growth are almost immediately seen as a threat or someone who is too controlling. Mark Cuban had the same issue when he started working for someone as well. Sometimes you just have to go out and risk it to be an entrepreneur.
