CENTRAL LONDON, England - May 16, 2014 - PRLog -- Boyd Parker is a successful entrepreneur and company leader and he is constantly being asked by people ‘What marks the difference between an employee and an entrepreneurial mindset?’ It’s a good question, and one that Mr Parker feels qualified to answer thanks to his wide range of experiences in the world of business.

Mr Parker thinks that the main difference between an employee and an entrepreneur is the way in which the mind works. He says, ‘The majority of people tend to have an employee mindset rather than an entrepreneurial one. I can always tell an entrepreneur from an employee because they think differently. They have a naturally enquiring mind and they tend to look for answers to problems rather than wasting time complaining about them. Entrepreneurs are creative, driven people and they enjoy pushing themselves to the limits. This is why they are so hard on themselves, however it pays off because they tend to achieve great things.’

Boyd Parker continues, ‘People with an employee mindset are happy to knock off at 5 o’clock and have a social life - in fact they like it this way. They like having a regular wage to rely on and they appreciate the safety and security that a job provides. Entrepreneurs are different in that they happily forego a social life because they see their job as far more rewarding than any social life at all. If they socialise at all, it tends to be with business partners, potential clients and like-minded people. Entrepreneurs don’t clock off at 5pm - in fact they will happily work through the night if it means that they achieve their goals more quickly. They are competitive and very highly motivated, and they can find it difficult to switch off.’

Mr Parker says that if you think you have what it takes to become an entrepreneur then it pays to analyse your character fully before you take the plunge. He says, ‘Go along to conferences and listen to other entrepreneurs speak - see if you connect and identify with what they are saying. Challenge yourself to take a few risks and see how you get on. Build your empire slowly but surely, making sure you learn from your mistakes along the way. Always remember to set yourself achievable and realistic goals and be prepared to review and change them along the way. If you work hard, you will get there, but you must be determined.’
