Posts Tagged ‘On Being An Entrepreneur’

The critical ingredient is getting off your ass and doing something.  It’s as simple as that.  A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now.  Not tomorrow.  Not next week.  But today.  They start working on that idea today.

At the beginning of the curve, a young person is lacking business experience, competence and self-confidence.  As age increases into the mid-twenties the time is right to start that business.  Now about here, in the late thirties or early forties, chances are this person is too embedded in his corporate career or facing too many financial commitments  –  like kids going to college  –  to take a chance.  If he doesn’t try it by now, chances are slim that he ever will.
