Episode 16 | The "Intrepreneur"

TSF Blog | “The Intrepreneur”

We all know an entrepreneur as an individual who creates a new business, bearing most of the risks and enjoying most of the rewards. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as an innovator, a source of new ideas, goods, services, and business/or procedures. The art of entrepreneurship is defined as the act of starting and running your own business or a tendency to be creative and wish to work for yourself in your own ventures. 


But there’s a new individual stepping out of the peripheral who may be one step ahead of the rest of us: we present for your consideration, “The Intrepreneur.”

The Intrepreneur is much like an entrepreneur with the same appetite for innovation, talent for anticipation, and drive to bring new ideas to the market. But what sets this hybrid apart from their entre-counterparts is that they have devised a way to avoid losses and failed prevalence, and instead, take advantage of an employer’s benefits. 

More people than ever before are working from home right now. In the past, being able to work from home would usually mean having your own business, but today there are so many different ways to do this, and new roles are being carved out to fit the everchanging climate all the time.  An intrepreneur is kind of like the halfway point between being an employee and an entrepreneur. It’s a relatively new term describing somebody who works for a company but takes total ownership and responsibility for a certain section of the business. Rather than applying to an existing role, an intrepreneur will often be hired for their skills, personality and values. Their position and tasks may change and develop over time. 

Their salary is also different from that of an employee because they earn based on performance rather than a set monthly wage, similarly to an entrepreneur. This means their income may fluctuate and they’re responsible for how much they make and directly benefit from the work they put in. 

An intrepreneurs role can be very independent, and they’re in charge of their own success. However, this does not mean they don’t work as part of a team. Although there is usually less of a hierarchy system in place than a traditional company, there are always more experienced colleagues to learn from and a whole community of like minded-individuals to bounce ideas off. 

That’s where The Success Finder is able to flex some serious muscle. 

If you don’t like to feel like a cog in a machine or that your passion and ideas are wasted in a traditional role, but don’t want to start something up from scratch right now, becoming an intrepreneur may just be the perfect option. Intrepreneurship also offers a lot of balance; a balance of responsibility while also having a team to rely on when needed; a balance of financial ownership without total control, and so on. 

There’s only one way to find out. But there are hundreds of reasons to try.
