For those of you 40+ who may be wavering between hanging on to a job that’s a bore but you cannot afford to leave it or girding your loins and striking out on your own to start a small business, take heart – there is a third option: Intrapreneurship!
Intrapreneurship is the art of applying all your creative genes to the job at hand so you reignite your passion for it and simultaneously fuel your organization’s success. No matter if you work within a corporation, government, educational institution, microenterprise, association or a nonprofit, all – including you – are able to benefit from your intrapreneurship.
David Armano wrote a great Forbes magazine article, Move Over Entrepreneurs, Here Come The Intrapreneurs, where he defines an intrapreneur as, “someone who has an entrepreneurial streak in his or her DNA, but chooses to align his or her talents with a large organization in place of creating his or her own.”
Armano concludes, “So here’s to intrapreneurs everywhere: The corporate world needs us now more than ever, and you might just be one without knowing it.”
And that “without knowing it” is the hitch: if you’ve never defined yourself as such, how are you supposed to know if you are an intrapreneur or even more, if you want to be one, how can you make it happen?
The good news is that eProvStudio’s unique and extremely pro-active workshops, specifically designed for 40+ year olds, use the art of improvisation to decode and catalyze your entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial thinking skills.
