Music/worship director as entrepreneur
What does it mean to be an entrepreneur? Jeff Stibel in the Harvard Business Review sees it “more of a personality trait” and even calls it “a disease” – Entrepreneurs are all in, all the time. Entrepreneurs love what they do and obsess over it. It is a predisposition; a path that has already been laid for you. It is a character trait, a labor of love, a zeal that cannot be trained, a condition that cannot be treated, an illness that cannot be caught. You’ve either got it or you don’t. Here are some questions to see if you have it: Do you wake up before your alarm goes off, hop out of bed excited to go to work? (good) Do you race to the car, forgetting breakfast, your morning coffee, and the paper? (better) Halfway to work, do you look down, realize you forgot to shower, shave, or get dressed? (great) Do you pause for a second, and then decide–what the hell–and head to work anyways? (diagnosis: entrepreneurialism; cure unknown) Sounds like some pastors and and church music directors I know.
