Thoughts on entrepreneurship2Entrepreneurship is usually related to anentrepreneur’s passion. Enthusiasm and working onsomething they find important helps them work hardand succeed. However, holidays and vacations shouldalso be considered in the business calculations. Theentrepreneur must also rest, because the companycannot be developed if the owner is exhausted.When I established a limited company and started doingbusiness on a part-time basis alongside my studies andpaid work, it was by no means clear that my businesswould one day expand into a full-time occupation. Butonce the business idea was tested and the companymade a good profit, taking a step towards full-timeentrepreneurship felt easy.TOMMI VIRKAMAVaasanseudun Uusyrityskeskus StartiaRASMUS LÖNNQVISTPrestige Car Center OyThe size and development of the market affect thefinancial business plan.

Becoming an entrepreneurA successful entrepreneuris driven by salesRasmus Lönnqvist has been a car enthusiast allhis life. He started selling cars as a part-timeentrepreneur alongside his studies and daytimework. Once the business idea proved successful,becoming a full-time entrepreneur was easy.text MINNA YLÄKANGAS photo JUKKA VÄHÄLUMMUKKARasmus became interestedin sales work when he wasin primary school and soldChristmas magazines in hishometown of Hanko. Sellingfelt like a competition: the more you sold,the higher were the sales commissions.Dealing with people also felt easy.Now, twenty years later, Rasmus hashis own company, and his sales work isstill about competing and dealing withcustomers. Every year the goal is to sellmore and provide a better service than theprevious year. He enjoys the smile on thecustomer’s face when they get the keys totheir new car.Turning a hobby intoa business“And Iguess youcouldn’t be anentrepreneur ifyou were afraidof risks.”After elementary school, Rasmusgraduated as a Business graduate, thenas a Bachelor of Business Administration.More recently, he has studied economics atthe University of Vaasa. He always workedalongside his studies, first in a sportsequipment shop and later in a bank.Entrepreneurship came into the picturewhen Rasmus was in college and startedselling cars imported from Sweden ona part-time basis in the evenings and atweekends. Cars had long been his hobby,so working with them was exciting. As apart-time entrepreneur, Rasmus had oneor two cars for sale at a time and a rentalwarehouse.After about two years, it was clear thatthe business was profitable and could besafely expanded into a full-time business.Not afraid of risksRasmus became a full-time entrepreneur6BECOMING AN ENTREPRENEURin 2016. He now has 80 cars, offices inVaasa and Helsinki, and two employees.His company Prestige Car Center Oy offerscars, financing, insurance, and financialleasing. The company also provides tyrestorage, washing and waxing services.The company has experienced stronggrowth, and in 2020, it reached the 181stplace in the Financial Times’ list of the1,000 fastest growing European companies.The risks are now greater than when heworked as a part-time entrepreneur, butRasmus is not worried.“I don't see a risk. I know our cars aregood and well maintained. And I guess youcouldn’t be an entrepreneur if you wereafraid of risks.”However, Rasmus admits that he wouldnot necessarily have become a full-timeentrepreneur if he had not first receivedconfirmation of his business idea.“It would have been much harder toabandon a good job to become a full-timeentrepreneur.”Entrepreneurial spiritRasmus did not particularly dream ofentrepreneurship. However, it is easy tosee why he became an entrepreneur.“I want to do something all the time, andI work a lot. I thought that if I was efficientand productive, it would be smarter to bean entrepreneur because then I would doall the work for myself. I also like makingdecisions.”When applying for a start-up grant,Rasmus was a customer of VaasanseudunUusyrityskeskus Startia. Startia’s DirectorTommi Virkama considers Rasmus anexemplary entrepreneur.“Rasmus is service-oriented and isconstantly developing his business. He is agood example of the fact that personalityplays an important role, especially in thecustomer service sector. Starting a businessis pretty easy, but the entrepreneur behindthe business is often what determines howthe company develops and succeeds,” saysVirkama.UUSYRIT YSKESKUS.FI/IN - ENGLISH

What isentrepreneurial work?Entrepreneurship gives you the opportunity to do things your own way andaccording to your own values. As an entrepreneur, you are responsible for theresults of your work and the obligations of the entrepreneur. When you understandwhat it takes to become an entrepreneur and prepare yourself carefully, you haveevery chance of succeeding.Are you planning to become anentrepreneur? Stop for a momentto consider whether you have anentrepreneurial mindset and qualitiesthat will help you succeed as anentrepreneur. You should also consideryour life situation as you should be ableto focus on your business and perhaps beable to wait a while before your businessstarts making money.Entrepreneurship is always a riskybusiness. Most risks are manageable ifyou identify them in advance and knowhow to prepare for them. The EnterpriseAgency’s business advisors will help youtest and plan your business idea for freeso that you can start your business on asolid foundation. Remember that risk isoften the very force that drives people toentrepreneurial activity.Who is an entrepreneur?The definition of an entrepreneurvaries depending on the context. Forexample, Statistics Finland defines anentrepreneur as a person who engages ineconomic activity on their own accountand at their own risk. An entrepreneurcan be an employer or a self-employedperson. A person working in a limitedcompany who, alone or togetherwith their family, owns at least halfof the company is also considered anentrepreneur.In the case of unemploymentinsurance, an entrepreneur is a personwho works in a company of which theyor their family own a specific sharedetermined by law. Furthermore, aperson who works, but is not in anemployment or service relationship with8BECOMING AN ENTREPRENEURthe employer company, is considered anentrepreneur (such as a self-employedperson or a person who works throughan invoicing service company). Owninga company or a part thereof does notautomatically make you an entrepreneur.The various forms ofentrepreneurshipYour personal life situation andbusiness idea will determine whetheryou should become a full-time or parttime entrepreneur. Depending on yoursituation, you should also evaluatewhether you should start a businessalone or with a partner. There are manypossibilities.Full-time entrepreneurship, as thename implies, is the entrepreneur'smain job and main source of income. Itimposes strict profitability requirementson the operations, as you have to makea living from the business. On the otherhand, full-time entrepreneurship allowsyou to be fully invested in the operationsof your company.The law does not distinguish betweenfull-time and part-time businesses.The distinction comes from theentrepreneur's possible other sources ofincome. You are considered a part-timeentrepreneur if you have another fulltime job.As a part-time entrepreneur, thefinancial risk may be lower, but eventhen you have to ensure you have enoughincome to cover the expenses.Part-time entrepreneurship may bejust a hobby, a way to earn a little extramoney, or an opportunity to try out abusiness idea. Starting a business as apart-time activity alongside paid work orstudy is recommended if you are unsureabout the profitability of your business.Part-time entrepreneurship is a goodway to test whether you will have enoughcustomers. Testing is particularlyimportant if you are planning to providea specialised service.Things to consider in parttime entrepreneurship:If you are employed, discuss yourplans for becoming an entrepreneurwith your employer.As an employee, you are not allowedto perform similar work as anentrepreneur. It is often sufficient toinform your employer of your part-timeentrepreneurship, but sometimes it isgood to ask for written permission.Find out how part-timeentrepreneurship will affect yourunemployment security.This is worth doing even if you are stillemployed.Price wisely.If you intend to expand your businessinto a full-time occupation, thinkcarefully about the right price for yourproduct or service. The price must behigh enough for you to make a profiteven if you expand your business intoa full-time occupation, because a steepprice increase may be impossible toimplement later on. An excessively lowprice level can give a false impressionof the market demand if your largecustomer base is the result of low prices.UUSYRIT YSKESKUS.FI/IN - ENGLISH

Unemployment securityIn this ever-changing world, business conditions may deteriorate unpredictably,even if an entrepreneur has a viable business idea and a high level of expertise.New entrepreneurs should always think about their social and unemployment security.According to the Unemployment SecurityAct, an entrepreneur is a person whoworks in a company of which they or theirfamily own a specific share determined bylaw. Furthermore, a person who worksin a company without an employmentor service contract, i.e. a self-employedperson or a person who works throughan invoicing service, is also considered anentrepreneur.An entrepreneur can join anunemployment fund for the selfemployed if their YEL income is at least 13,247 per year (Entrepreneur's YEL/MYEL earned income and the companyco-owner's TyEL salary). Entrepreneurswith a lower level of income are onlyentitled to labour market support.When is an entrepreneurunemployed?You are not entitled to unemploymentbenefits if you are fully employed asan entrepreneur. In order to receivethe benefit, you need to close downyour business. According to theUnemployment Security Act, you areunemployed if it can be proven thatyour business activities have ended orif your employment with the companyhas ended in a lawful manner. The TEOffice always ensures that you meet theemployment conditions for the paymentof the benefit. The concept of terminatedentrepreneurial activity variesdepending on the form of enterprise andthe entity as a whole.The entrepreneurial activityis deemed fully terminated if the enterprise has been placed inbankruptcy the enterprise has been placed inliquidation a dissolution agreement has beenconcluded between the partners(excluding limited liabilitycompanies) the production and financialactivities of the enterprise haveUUSYRIT YSKESKUS.FI/IN - ENGLISHended and the entrepreneur hasgiven up their YEL or MYELinsurance and filed a notificationwith the Tax Authorities forremoving the enterprise from theprepayment register, the employerregister and the VAT register (orinterrupting its VAT liability).In some cases, the TE Office mayconsider the entrepreneurial activity tobe seasonal and grant unemploymentbenefits for a period when theentrepreneur is unable to conduct theirbusiness.
