So, how poker can help as an entrepreneur or during your startup journey?
Being a poker player for many years gave me a few skills that I didn’t know would be helpful later on. But thanks to poker, I learn quickly, I have the ability to make tough decisions, I can manage money, I am analytical, I focus on long-term not only short-term, I am eager to learn and of course I like taking risks. Poker definitely brought me a lot, the list is not exhaustive but the article would be too long otherwise.
However, this is not the only hobby that can bring you valuable skills to become an entrepreneur. Indeed, a traveler or a top athlete also have many skills to become an entrepreneur. You can also learn business skills with philanthropy
, yoga, dance, music or many other activities you may have.
I am not recommending to start playing poker now, especially if you are not passionate about it. I just wanted to show you how a hobby actually helped me as an entrepreneur and can help you. So, do not hesitate to spend your time with something you are passionate about. If you really love something, you will want to improve a lot in that field. You will become great at it and I guarantee you this passion will bring you unexpected benefits in the future.
If you have a passion and this gave you useful skills as an entrepreneur, please share them.
