Why do only some entrepreneurs succeed?
- What are you born with?
- What can you learn from school, from success, from failure?
- What can you acquire?
99% of the population is working for and implementing the ideas of entrepreneurs, but how do we explore the 1%, the entrepreneurship in ourselves? There are various ways to recognize the demand and needs for other people, which we may satisfy by presenting a better solution, but are we brave and persistent enough to march the long way from an idea to implementation and from failures to success? Can we become entrepreneurs from school or do we need work experience as the guild apprentices to explore our abilities?
