[ENFP] advice on CAREER CHOICE! check my 1st post about <3 with ENTJ, link at bottom!

I have been entrepreneurial since the first damn cup of lemonade I sold. It wasn't even a standard lemonade stand either, it was COMPLEX. Don't ask;)


now i'm making it sound really weird...
and now i'm losing my train of thought
which is one of my biggest problems as an ENFP
yay im back to my thought :)


So i've had a few small businesses, I tutored in high school, sold rave bras for a while, made jewelry, all of these jobs I worked for myself yes with other people, but i was my own boss because it allowed me to set my own rules and deadlines etc etc. now in college, i am no longer involved in these short-lived things, but i have explained them to premise the idea that these ventures, projects, whatever, are so fulfilling to me, and it fuels my urge to want to, no no, NEED, to be an entrepreneur.


I am truly creative and have great ideas, but i lose interest. Or not even lose interest, its weird, I actually GAIN so much interest in whatever I'm doing that I go into project overload and plan out every detail and price/quantity for a bulk order to be efficient and write out a list for the this and the that, adding complexity upon complexity to my initially intriguing concept. i plan and plan, to the point where i have a whole business plan designed that it's not exciting. when i tire out or run out of ideas, i poop out (sleep at this point ahha) and never end up getting back to it. i wont sleep because i get so involved in some idea. and its not even an unrealistic or stupid idea, its just i go overboard and can't slow down. my mind takes ideas to cool places, why can't it SLEEP and go slower or more methodically?! agh. I need my own business. I know one of these ideas will stick. I fucking know it. it just needs to stick in my mind. Then i can make it stick in yours;)


ENFP's, what career do you have / want? Do you have this problem, brainstorm planning overdrive, add, whatever is going on ahha? advice?






and i forgot to put my first post in "Intro" but i'd love for some words of wisdom from an ENFPor ENTJ (my partner's type)

Sounds like you could make some money selling those businessplans you never get back to!
There's a lot of people out there who have the drive to continue with something, but not that creative spark to get it started. You could provide that, it seems to come natural to you.

You need a partner who's a TJ type in order to focus your ideas and to handle the boring, responsible stuff.
ive tried to run my own business twice and failed bc I did it alone with no "nerd" skills. I'm quite shocked that you are able to put together an entire business plan. That bores the crap out of me. You seem to have what it takes but you need an anchor. But hang on a minute. I'm reading your post again and I'm not understanding something... You have the business down to the last detail, have you done anything about it? Did you start DOING BUSINESS? If not, you need to use the capital you have and just start. You shouldn't fall out or burn out if your actively working the plan. The excitement of making money and actualizing your ideas should keep you going. If the business makes sense on paper... DO IT! I'd love to hear back from you to get a better idea of your issue and also to see where you're up to now, being that I'm 6 months late to this post.
