Entrepreneurs are born a particular way:- It is assumed that entrepreneurial qualities are inborn and that only people with certain natural talents can become entrepreneurs. This is a myth and research has established that almost anyone can be an entrepreneur with the right skills, drive, and passion. There is no set defined way to point towards personality types of entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is a learned skill, not a natural-born ability.
Great ideas are what make entrepreneurs:-In actuality, there is no real or commercial value in just an idea. People who are able to execute an idea and turn it into a business are referred to as entrepreneurial. Entrepreneurs do not necessarily reinvent the wheel. Many times, they take existing ideas to make a business out of them.
Entrepreneurs have to take a lot of risks:-While entrepreneurs definitely have to bear some risks, they do not necessarily put themselves in high-risk situations. Entrepreneurs take calculated risks and weigh risk versus reward.
Businesses either skyrocket or fail:-Although a select few start-ups skyrocket and receive all the media attention, it is easy to adopt an all- or-nothing outlook on entrepreneurship. While many ventures make it big and many fail, a lot of businesses are run with patience and strategy with a focus on self-sustenance and gradual growth.
A lot of money is required to start any business:-While a certain amount of capital is required to take a business off the ground, it varies depending on the business. The key to entrepreneurship is to start with resources available and grow slowly and steadily. It is not necessary that one should fear or deter from entrepreneurship due to a lack of financial resources.
One must know everything before starting a business:-Entrepreneurs continuously thrive to be in a constant state of learning. Being new and even somewhat naive can be an asset in today’s rapidly changing world because succeeding at entrepreneurship requires energy, innovation, and the ability to push yourself outside your comfort zone. What actually counts is not what you know, but how fast you can learn.
