Why Being an Entrepreneur Makes You Feel so Good

by The Obvious Expert on June 24, 2009

Do you want to feel really good about the less-than-stable, risk taking career path you have chosen by becoming an entrepreneur, businessperson, consultant, coach, freelancer or sole practitioner? Track down a film produced last year by the Acton Institute titled, “The Call of the Entrepreneur.”

This one hour documentary chronicles the stories of real life dreamers and doers, who as the film explains, go, “... Dashing into the future, hoping it will be better…”

But the film is not a critique of entrepreneurs; far from it. Instead, Rev. Robert A Sirico of the Acton Institute likens the calling that leads visionary men and women to become entrepreneurs to something that is almost spiritual, comparing entrepreneurship to being like a religion in the devotion it inspires.

Watch the trailer for the video (You will find it on the right hand side of this blog page). Then, follow this link and watch an interview conducted by David Asman on America’s Nightly Scoreboard on Fox Business Network with Rev. Sirico, about the film. And lastly, set aside an evening to recharge your business passion and watch The Call of the Entrepreneur.

Great post, and the film is also great. Thanks for giving the film such a great review. I am a communications associate at the Acton Institute and I don’t mean to correct your work, but I was wondering if you could change the length of the documentary. Our documentary, The Call of the Entrepreneur is actually only 60 minutes in length. Thanks for the consideration, and thanks for the post. We are referring readers from our blog to come read your post and blog as well.
