The answer is: Yes.
There are certainly inherent qualities
an entrepreneur has that helps him or her get started, but it’s the
passion that an individual has for the business they are creating that
is the true driving force to success. A formal education serves as a
great catalyst for entrepreneurship and provides a safe environment for
practice, failure, mentoring and re-crafting of the business plan.
the great question of book smarts vs street smarts: it’s the formal
schooling that helps an entrepreneur run an efficient business, and
it’s the street wisdom that arms that entrepreneur with the personal
skills and tenacity to achieve success.
