Become an Intra-preneur
You don’t need to start a business to be entrepreneurial.
You can be an intra-preneur, at a company you love.
That means creating value without permission, and bringing radical self-responsibility and self-management to your work.
Companies crave this. They’re tired of giving directions like a school teacher.
So empower yourself, and start now, on your job hunt.
Go solve problems for a company. Do the job before you have the job.
It’ll be hard to ignore you.

It doesn’t have to be a big scary thing.
Start blogging. Start a YouTube channel. Don’t just read books, review them. Podcast. Create projects around stuff you’re learning. Share your process and the outcome
Companies are blown away by custom projects.
Think about what a treat it is for a company. Without permission, a job applicant emails with, “hey I built this, just for you!”
The bottom line: show, don’t tell!
