Hi everyone!

I'm an entrepreneurial guy (not a full-time self sustaining entrepreneur yet) but I did some fun projects along the way. Most of them failed, some worked out.

My best project thus far was a private camping next to a festival (basically in my garden) which made me 8k in profit over 2 weekends. It were basically one of the best 2 weekends of my life. Not because of the money but because it was f*cking amazing to do something like this.

Right now I'm working in a boring job but my dream is really to become a full-time entrepreneur.
Running a business that I love. Not a type of business where you have to push really hard to sell your product/service (there has to be demand/pull from the market) and one where you can be free of time (so one where there is enough margin to pay someone else to do some work for you).

Is this realistic? Is there a right mindset how successful entrepreneurs look at/think about opportunities in general? Right now I experience a scarcity in projects to pursue/to live off. I can't think of me doing projects and really survive of these but maybe I'm missing something ...

Cheers!

Yes, you need to get good at discovering demand. Adwords keyword planner is good for this. Beware: you can easily spend hours on it. You'll have to create an ad to get access to the detailed numbers, but you can disable the ad after you make it.

Well you are in the right place. This place may not have ALL the answers but it will enlighten you to be a better version of yourself. At the end of the day we all have a different life, live in different locations, have different personalities. So there is no step by step guide to what value you can offer YOUR market. Entrepreneurship is a journey of self actualization. Do not rush it. Start by helping people. Think about the problems you or a friend/relative has. Help them. Is there a market for this service they need? The journey starts by discovering a problem in your market that can scale that needs a service or product.

Check threads by @Andy Black and @IceCreamKid .. Great tips and should get you started
