Clearly the world is going quite out of what we know to be moral. New close-to-naked dressing styles, crazy hairdo, scary careers, and shocking life decisions in sexuality and life partners has somewhat become the norm and much of which bare least concern in the mind of the public.
Well, religious leaders never seized preaching and some states still seek to keep the so-called moral sanity. Anyways, it’s up for each and everyone to make his stand about each of these decadence. My concern, however, is what is the role of an entrepreneur in this changing times.
Here is three roles for an entrepreneur to play.
Be the Moralist
Maybe you are the type that doesn’t contour to the trend in the level of human morality of day, then be a moralist. Stand to bring back sanity.
Entrepreneur have large heart for risks. We simply have the hot blood to change the status quo. You can simply start a cause against the things you wish not to see in the world.
If you are bitter about the wave of the same-sex, start a campaign against it. You can go an extra mile of creating an innovative product that fix the gap.
Doing the later suggest huge research. You may probably find a denominator among the same-sex buddy that spore them into hanging out with their type. It might end up, it’s a type of phobia the bunch of them have in building relationship with the opposite sex.
Be the Moderator
If you really don’t see a way to cut the canker-worm, why not moderate the affair. The innovative brains that created condoms for protection against STDs seem to me as moderators.
They are generally no condemning sex before marriage or sex outside wed lock. Their products merely served as moderating factors. The immorality may not reduce due to the availability of condom, but the product has greatly helped in curbing some incurable sexual transmitted diseases such as HIV.
If you see a glitch in the world that is beyond your control, you may choose being a moderator.
Be the Marketer
If you can’t make it better, make it worse. Doing nothing is the evil. – Timmy Brain
Although this last point may seem counter-intuitive, I believe it’s one of the frankest truth you can find around. You can’t just sit around and do nothing.
Entrepreneur, to me, have a strong life to live. One where their actions and inactions matter and they are aware of it. (That’s why I often attend my department stakeholders meeting with no political post in mind, and my presence is always felt).
If you are the type that love the growth of the immorality why not go ahead and tell the world your viewpoint matters. Marketing it is a smart idea.
In fact, creating product for such market proves to sell faster even at expensive prices. The bunch of hostel owners know their primary market are those engaging in sex outside marriage or a bit of the acclaimed travelers that promised to home.
If you truly believe in your stand and you see nothing wrong about a trend, stick to it. Debunk any society imposed barrier and follow your true self. That’s the nature of an entrepreneur.
