difference between employees and entrepreneurs


Do you know the main difference between employees and entrepreneurs?

In this blog/video, I am sharing with you 11 differences between being an employee and being an entrepreneur.

But before that, let’s make sure the definition for both is clear:

An entrepreneur is someone who starts, owns, and/or runs a business

On the other hand, an employee is someone who works for either a company or an individual.

Now that it’s clear, let’s get to the differences…

Is hired for specific tasks/duties Performs general tasks
Receives orders and instructions from the boss Is the boss
Has fixed hours and days/ location of work Can work anytime, anywhere
Works on the execution part of the business Works on strategy and business development of the company
Is judged by the completion of tasks Is judged by the company performance and turnover
Waits for their employer to train them Always learning from books, workshops etc
Gets a salary Gets a salary + dividends from the company
Values money Values time more
Does the work themselves Knows how to delegate
Identifies problems Solves the problems
Looks for security Looks for freedom

I have been both an employee and an entrepreneur and I can say the difference between employees and entrepreneurs is the energy. One is about submission and execution. The other is about creativity and leadership.

However, I cannot say that one is better than the other.

Should you become an employee or an entrepreneur? I would say it all depends on the type of personality you have and above all your goals in life. If you want to know more, check out this video I did about the 5 questions you need to ask yourself to know if you can be an entrepreneur.
