MBA1129 How to Know if Entrepreneurship is Not For You

A basic truth of business: this isn’t for everyone.

Entrepreneurship isn’t a better way of making a living, just a different one. And only certain kinds of people are suited for it. Having coached and mentored many an independent business person through the $100 MBA, we’ve seen what it takes to succeed — and why being honest with yourself is the first prerequisite.

Over time, we’ve noticed a collection of common traits, aversions that all but guarantee entrepreneurship will not work out for someone. There are certain things that only entrepreneurs enjoy, while most people will be stressed right back into conventional employment.
