For many years the debate has raged as to whether entrepreneurs are born or made.
Some argue entrepreneurs are born.
Others argue that entrepreneurs are made.
And some argue that entrepreneurs are born — then made.
But here’s the thing…Does it really matter?
I guess it does if you’re writing an academic paper that could earn you a few extra letters after your name.
However, as entrepreneurs building businesses and creating the life we want, does it really matter either way?
After all, this is the life we chose, right – whether we were born with what we need or not?
And since we’re entrepreneurs by choice, surely our focus and energy should be on achieving the goal/s we set when we decided to walk this less trodden path?
Even if for no other reason than to make all the people who doubted us — or tried to sabotage our dreams — green with envy.
Like you, I have an opinion. And here’s where I stand on the whole ‘entrepreneurs born or made’ debate…
Although some of us may have been born entrepreneurs, throughout our lives every entrepreneur has to develop the skills, mindset and character that make us the entrepreneurs we are.
And in order to become the entrepreneurs we want to be tomorrow, we must continue developing those qualities today.
Which is what really matters, right?
What do you think?
