Some people refer to entrepreneurs as “starters”. This term makes sense because as an entrepreneur you create something from nothing and market it to the world. It’s extremely risky, but can be very rewarding. Entrepreneurs are a special breed. Their task is risky, not just financially, but emotionally and physically too. Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart.
Entrepreneurs need to have at least a little bit of knowledge in a lot of areas. They need to know about finances, human resources, marketing, product development, and time management to name just a few. Smart entrepreneurs must learn how to tactfully delegate each of these responsibilities because after all, they can’t do everything themselves if they want to scale!

According to Bloomberg, eight out of ten first-time entrepreneurs fail within the first 18 months. 80% crash. Research on new ventures, such as the four-year study conducted by PricewaterHouseCoopers shows that there are certain qualities that may help you succeed. Most of these recommendations buck conventional marketing and business advice, but, then again, each individual and business has to tread its own path. The unconventional usually succeeds.
So, you want to own your own business or become a solo-preneur? You know that paving your own path, breaking through the standard, or just doing something different that makes your heart skip a beat is your path in life?
Maybe you think you have a great idea for an unfilled need, or want to start something with a cause behind it that you believe in. Maybe you just want to freelance or work solely for industries you care about?
Whatever it is, in this day and age, with enough gut-so, hardwork and passion, you can do it!
