Rock stars are known for their unmindful ways. They are reckless, full of ego and troublesome. On the other hand rockstars are brands in themselves, highly talented, hardworking professionals too.They rake in tonnes of money by creating songs and plays that others cannot even imagine. They are very creative and captivate crowds. They are reckless with money and often are penniless in the end. This is not to praise or demean them but to see them as they are. They are the risk takers, crowd pullers and they have a huge fan following.

An entrepreneur is not very different from a rockstar. Let us list out some of the similiraties between the two.

  1. Rockstars and Entrepreneurs are creators of ideas
  2. They are risk takers.

  4. They develop their own style and create differentiation for their products
  5. Most of the time they go against established social norms, culture and beliefs
  6. They inspire thousands of followers to be like them
  7. When they become successful they earn unprecedented wealth
  8. They never worry if their product does not work. They continue developing their core strengths
  9. They never say no to any exciting idea

Interesting comparison and I love the way you have pointed out the similarities between both. I am not so huge fan of rockstars. Very rarely, I find time for all these…anyways, I learned something from your post. Keep writing :)
