Entrepreneurship is without any doubt , an option; however, it is important to say that it is not for all people. The enthusiasm plays an important role in order to have that sparkle that turns into a enlighten flame. There are some things to review before you decide to become an entrepreneur:
Entrepreneurship as a full time activity: A project, even if it’s just an idea, requires full attention and enthusiasm to get it done. It is not about a hobby, it is a serious plan that will require all the work needed. There is no vacation at the very beginning. It is true that the time is flexible and the possibility to work for objectives instead of just be at the office accomplish work hours.
- The entrepreneur is the person that has the main responsibility and is the one that has the rhythm and speed of the business, this is why this person is the one that should be the leader and schedule the team.
