Why you have what it takes to be a great entrepreneur

By Neil Patrick

The last few days I have been guilty of doing what I criticise others in the media for doing i.e. focussing too much on all the bad news (well there has been a lot of it to cover!)

So by way of restoring the balance, here’s a great video featuring Phil Poje of Tech Orchard. He’s a very calm character, but don’t let the measured delivery fool you. He’s got real passion under that cool façade.

Here he talks about why our generation has what it takes to succeed in business and how you can go about organising yourself to create a business you absolutely love... and which rewards you not just financially, but emotionally too.

His thoughts mirror my own almost exactly. If you feel that your mid-life years are a time to re-assess your future, then you will take inspiration from his comments about why you already have so much potential to succeed.

In my view, if we can’t expect the economy, our investments or our employers to look after us, it is time to take matters into our own hands. Creating our own independent income streams for ourselves is the best possible way to do this.


  1. Hi Neil, I cant hear anything from the video

    1. Hi Gary. I've checked and it seems fine on my PC. Try checking you've not got something in your device or browsewr set to mute. :-)
