A Billion Entrepreneurs, Cymplified!

What does the word ‘entrepreneurship’ mean? It has always been about developing and running a business to make a profit. There is a movie called A Billion Entrepreneurs, a crowd-funded film, set out to redefine the meaning of entrepreneurship. Through the movie, Filmmaker Jimmy Newson wanted to share that entrepreneurship would mean:

taking responsibility
taking responsibility for outcomes

It all starts with this question:

what is your purpose?
what is your purpose?

Everyone wants to know what their purpose in life was. What are they sent to the world for? Why do they even exist? I know I asked myself, and God, these questions many times. And when we have discovered what our purpose is, we then ask, what do we do with this purpose? This is where entrepreneurship comes in and how A Billion Entrepreneurs seeks to inspire people around the world to take up this purpose and do something worthwhile about it.

A Billion Entrepreneurs is a documentary film that follows real-life entrepreneurs “as they leave a trail of impact, inspiration, mentorship, and responsibility in their business and personal lives which has an effect on countless people.” The purpose of this movie is to allow the viewers to understand how invigorating it is to be an entrepreneur and to empower them to believe that they can do it, too. Not just the adults, even children can be entrepreneurs and change the world for the better. The idea of solving a problem a person is passionate about should be exciting to an entrepreneur. The movie wishes to make a billion entrepreneurs with their catalyzing statement: an entrepreneur in every home.

Can a stay-at-home-mom like me be an entrepreneur? What does taking responsibility for outcomes mean for me? Taking responsibility for outcomes means being a better mom. Taking responsibility for outcomes means freedom to do what’s important to me, security for my children and success in living out my purpose, for me and my family. This movie will surely be worth watching by everyone.
