MBA1960 Q&A Wednesday: My first 3 businesses failed. Is business right for me?

Fact: entrepreneurship is not for everyone.

The truth is that not everyone is right for independent business. Some people thrive more, contribute more, and live more happily by working a conventional job. 

But how do you know which category you fall into?

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’ve got a listener with several business failures under their belt. The question of whether to just hang it up is looming. With such a poor track record…is it time to quit?

After all, there’s a difference between persevering and spitting into the wind.

Today, we explain how to know when it’s time to give up, and when it’s time to march onward. We’ll share a few failures of our own, including several that didn’t stop our intrepid host.
