You are born with it
This might apply to certain people but this doesn't necessarily disregard those who were not born without the skills or desires. Great entrepreneurs can be developed through nurture without the “perceived nature”.
You need to be Niche
Finding a particular niche does not guarantee success and it wont save your company from failure. As a business owner you need to focus on offering a valuable product or service at a reasonable price.
How old are you?
Your age doesn't necessarily determine your businesses’ possible success. The only limits are in your mind, no matter how old or young you are, the possibilities are endless.
You have unlimited confidence
Your confidence as an entrepreneur is something that you work on everyday. It is not easy to position yourself as an expert and promote your business.
You’re an overnight success
Aspiring entrepreneurs often follow the success story instead of the origin of that success story.
It's all about the idea
Entrepreneurship is 10% idea and 90% execution. Success comes from being able to execute your vision and make adjustments when necessary.
You make your own hours
Aspiring entrepreneurs often think that you make up your own working hours. The truth is that as the business owner its hard to turn your work mode on / off, you always have work on your mind therefore you are always working.
You are the next Zuckerberg People think that entrepreneurs are like Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and other tech giants. In reality many entrepreneurs did not just drop out of school and college to use their incredibly genius minds to get ahead.
You can still separate professional from personal When you become an entrepreneur your business becomes a huge part of your life. A great idea can be inspired by anything or anyone around you; it’s not easy to turn your mind off business when you get home.
