Can acting like an enterpreneur help you find love?

Jasbina asks Neely Steinberg, author of the book Skin in the Game: Unleashing Your Inner Entrepreneur to Find Love: "What are the three qualities you describe as being critical to starting an entrepreneurial venture to find love?"

Neely Steinberg:

"3 Qualities For Entrepreneurial Love Venture

  1. Desire
  2. Problem-Solving Mindset
  3. Vision

Yes, absolutely. The good thing about entrepreneurship is that it's a life skill.

You don't need to have a certain personality type or have millions of dollars. A lot of people think of entrepreneurs being aggressive and self-starters.

The good news is that entrepreneurship is really about a way of thinking and acting in your life. You can apply that to your dating and love life. As you are starting this dating and love venture, there are a few things that you need."

Elaborating further on the points above:

  1. The first thing is desire.

"You need to have desire. You're putting a stake in the ground. This is what you want to create in your life. You're ready to create that. It's about having that commitment to doing what's necessary to get to that place to create what you want to create.

I think there are a lot of women out there who think, "Whatever. I don't need love. I don't need a man." If it's something really deep down that you want, you have to declare that with pride to yourself and to the world."

  1. The second thing is a problem-solving mindset.

"Entrepreneurs are problem solvers. They are looking for solutions out there. You are becoming a problem solver in your own love life. When I say "problems" I don't mean that in the negative sense.

The single status is an opportunity. It's not a burden. When I say "problems" I mean that you're trying to identify the obstacles in your way. How are you getting in your own way? Then you address those obstacles and work through them."

  1. The third thing that you mentioned is vision.

"I think it's important for entrepreneurs to engage an overarching vision of who they want to become in the dating world. What kind of woman do they want to be?

I say "woman" because I work primarily with women. The language in the book is written for women but, really, anyone can take something away from this book. It's who you want to be in the dating world and what kind of relationship you want to create. It's having that overarching vision and doing what's necessary to achieve that vision."

"Those are the three things."
