You Could Be Building an Empire Without Even Realizing It Learn how this entrepreneur, author and podcaster launched her career.

By Entrepreneur Staff

Entrepreneur, six-time book author and You've Got Issues podcaster Anna David knows a thing or two about business.

In this video, David discusses what it means to be an entrepreneur and how to become one.

"Being an entrepreneur to me means having an idea -- in your bed or in front of the computer -- and actually making it come to fruition," she says. At first, David didn't realize she was an entrepreneur. She thought she was simply selling her books.

Once momentum picked up, David recognized the business she had built, and she has since used it to do good. On top of being an author and a podcaster, she runs the website AfterPartyMagazine.com, which covers the topics of addicition and recovery.

But entrepreneurship is no walk in the park. David shares some advice for those who aspire to start a business: "If you're overwhelmed and intimidated, admit that, at least to yourself, instead of trying to mask it with vibrato."
