018 Risking It | My views on Entrepreneurship & Small Business Owners/Self Employed People
Hi there fellow aspiring Entrepreneur   Thank you for viewing/listening to my content.  In this episode, I discuss entrepreneurship and the difference between entrepreneurs and small business owners or self-employed people. They are similar yet different. I have always aspired to become an entrepreneur and feel deep in my bones I am one (in the making). I am building, hustling, and grinding to build a business that can flourish without my presence. If that is something you are aspiring to as well, please consider following me on this journey, and hopefully, we can connect :)    Recommended Books :   How to win at the sport of business by Mark Cuban   The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris   My links:   stephandre.com/links Facebook - Stephandre.com  Twitter - stephandrep  Tiktok - stephandrep  Website - www.stephandre.com Podcast - Risking It (Available on Spotify, Apple & Google Podcast)

In this episode, I discuss the idea of trading for freedom or for money. What challenges traders face and how difficult this profession really is. I have been trading the financial markets for a decade, and let me tell you it's like Golf. There are periods that you can hit a Hole in One and really win big, and then periods can hit where you really struggle to trade and lose a lot of money.  If you enjoy my content, please get in contact with me here - stephandre.com/links

In this episode I share what my strategy is during this recession and what I am doing for a better future. If you have any questions, please send me a DM on Twitter or Instagram.

It's a great App filled with amazing features and it's very easy to use.  Link - https://www.22seven.com/  2. Become Disciplined    There is no app that I can think of that will take away the responsibility of becoming disciplined. I suggest you start off small and work yourself to the point that you don't break the rules.    Remember    – The budget is the rules    – Discipline is the game    3. Save up Cash    This is the one that will probably take the most time but it will be worth it at the end.    4. Invest Wisely    This step isn't an 'open a book today - know everything tomorrow' type of step. This will take time, energy and dedication but at the end of the day, no one can take away your knowledge of investments over a period of time.    Social Media   Twitter - @stephandrep  Instagram - @stephandrep
