| There is a myth that presumes that civil servants (government employees)are not motivated.|
I beg to differ that opinion. For many, there remains a visualization of the government employee from the 50s and 60s, strudging along with their plastic IDs and pocket retainers.
This description and perception of government employees could not be any further from the truth. Civil servants are an emerging, vibrant and intelligent group of workers who have a heart for service.
Even more refreshing, they have developed a heart for entrepreneurship as well. The pure drive to serve makes them model candidates for homebased business ownership.
Not too long ago, I was approached by a civil servant interested in starting a part-time business. Knowing that I held a Masters degree in business and several years of experience at a Fortune 500 Bank, this employee exemplified a burning desire to not only make a difference, but make money as well. Simply put, this civil servant possessed the same drive and aspirations for entrepreneurship like any other true American.
Surprisingly, a recent survey cited that 40% of Americans have the entrepreneurial spirit, but don't know where to start.
The shear inquiry into small business ownership by this civil servant made me realize that government employees are entrepreneurs too!
And, like many of us, they need a roadmap for making their creative dreams a reality during their spare time.
Let it be known that there is a new breed of business owner in the marketplace. I call them F.E.D.preneurs!
