Do you have what it takes to launch a startup?

Miguel sponsors entrepreneurial events called "Startup Global Warrior." Posted in "Meetups," the events have turned into a fabulous hobby.

Are you possessed with an entrepreneurial mindset?

Meetups are held in Hong Kong, San Diego, and Silicon Valley.

Entrepreneurs are extremely disciplined. They should begin the journey at a young age. Yet, anyone coupled with enough imagination and willpower can do it anytime and anywhere in the world.

But first, let's take a field trip back to school!

There are stories to be told about roommates knocking their heads together during college to put together a unicorn. A unicorn is a start-up company valued at over $1 billion. Maybe the talented roommates grew up in the same town. They went to school together, studied the same courses, or acquired teamwork playing together on a sports team. Perhaps they played different musical instruments and formed a band. Online gamers dish it out and take it in all the time. Basically, they acquired the skills to get along.

Through the years, they stayed in touch to share knowledge, discuss advances in their various realms, and explore opportunities.

Perhaps a unicorn consisting of a startup team met at an accelerator or incubator? Maybe they actively participated in Meetups, co-founder groups, and social networking events?

These friendships share many common ingredients. They bonded, learned to trust each other, let go of their egos, and were disciplined enough to put together a great product or service and successfully launch it in a relatively short period of time.

Today is a great day to begin the journey

There are thousands of wild and crazy startups emerging all over the world. Several of them are sponsored by cities, states, and countries - foreign and domestic.

Established competitors are lurking about looking to invest in a startup for their next merger, nasty take-over, or friendly buy-out.

Another option is to get pumped up with huge doses of "galactic warrior spirit" to self-fund a fresh startup.  A deeply embedded 'solopreneur' should acquire an array of valuable skills to survive long enough to get to the next round and become the next great unicorn or cockroach.

There is an increasing number of entrepreneurs that startup a business with no intention of ever adding staff, selling, or merging with another business.

These entrepreneurs may not be the next unicorn and they may not ever conduct business "in the clouds," but they become extremely successful in just one "brick and mortar" endeavor - like a franchise, restaurant, or family retail business.

Qualified entrepreneurial fanatics are willing to sacrifice and risk everything. They are lonely people. Conventional job-dwellers don't understand them. They are a rare breed. It is critical to maintain healthy relationships and balance your time during the early adopter stage.

Efficiency (performance) and Effectiveness (results) are Key Ingredients.

During constant bombardment incoming from all directions, they must add the right mix of ingredients to win big-leagued.

The Casualties are Catastrophic unless...

    • The startup team has known since birth that they were going to launch a unicorn or cockroach.
      The odds are still against them.
    • The startup team has been "battle-tested" early by great mentors and coaches.
      The odds are still against them.
    • You are gifted like Steve Jobs (talented leader) and have Woz (talented follower) on your team.
      The odds are still against you.

The odds of success are against you.
Startup Teams are cherry-picked.
Hand-picked Startup Teams emerge victoriously.
Your Startup Team has to outsmart them!

Startup Teams are not easy to put together. You must acquire the skills to get along.

If you want it bad enough, change.
Don't worry about them. Apply yourself.
