WATCH: This Thai Ad Nails What Entrepreneurship Is All About

by . October 6th, 2015

We’ve held off showing funny or unusual advertisements on You The Entrepreneur because you rarely learn anything from them.

This one is different.

I admit when this showed on my feed, I rolled my eyes, thinking that this would be one of those videos grandma might share. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be one of the more solid ads I’ve seen.

It does run a bit long, but it’s worth it.

Surprisingly enough, it’s an ad for A Thai mobile service. As an ad for that, it’s pretty lousy at least in the context that most people would be used to.

Lessons from the video:

1.) Entrepreneurship is about finding opportunities for improvement.

2.) Entrepreneurship is about building systems.

3.) Entrepreneurship is a constant learning process.

4.) There’s always space for another player.

5.) Long term goals > short term gains.
