Part of the mission here at AGT is helping people realise and fulfill their passions and purpose. Our doors are open to both career professionals and entrepreneurs alike because to us having a business is not the fundamental requirement of entrepreneurship.

Despite being told since the beginning that we should focus on building a community for one group or the other, our members currently consist of people with many different ideas on what success means to them. Unlike other communities we don’t focus on an academic or professional criteria but instead chose to focus on personal attributes.

We have a real knack for hearing someone’s story, appreciating their journey and relating to the problem in a way that allows us to help them come up with solutions. One of the most common attributes that all our members share is their very real persistence and hustle. We are a group of people that is not afraid to try and fail and we celebrate each others successes.

Achieving goals together means pooling our knowledge and sharing it out. So recently, we’ve spent a lot of time figuring out how best to do the last part. For now, we’d like to start doing weekly posts on REDEFINING ENTREPRENEURSHIP by giving you our take on the entrepreneur journey. Social media often portrays the glamorous life of entrepreneurship but fails to take into consideration the reality of how challenging it is to get a business going, especially without funding. So we’ll be aiming to debunk notions of 6 figure earnings and instead get people focused on how entrepreneurship can change your life and more importantly your mind-set.

Let us start first by giving you a textbook definition of entrepreneurship: “The activity of setting up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit”

Now let us give you an example of what we feel is a better definition:  “Entrepreneurship is seeing an opportunity and gathering the resources to turn a possibility into a reality. It represents the freedom to envision something new and to make it happen. It includes risk, but it also includes the reward of creating a legacy.” – Maia Haag, co-founder and president of I See Me! Personalized Books and Gifts

We’ll also be looking for contributors, so if this topic resonates with you or you have something  you would like to write about, ✍📧 to just be sure to put contributor in the title.
