An Entrepreneur is a person who starts his own business with some innovative idea. He may bring his own money or may have partners.
He should have creativity, tolerance, dedication towards the goal, a risk-taking capability to push ahead. He should also have a strong state of mind.
People come from different backgrounds with a different mindset. If one is coming from a family where most of the members are in government service, their mindset becomes service oriented, whereas if one is coming from the business background, their mindset is business oriented as they have been born and brought up in that environment.
If you have an idea and wants to do your own business. It is always better to have a mentor to guide and obviously a strong financial backup.
It is also important to know the ways to reach the interested customers in an effective and affordable way, once you have implemented your idea.
There is no age limit to start a business. Similarly, there is no right or wrong time to start a business. If you have the right idea and right advisors, and strong finance to back up, nobody can stop you.
It is always better to start working in an organization and see the working there. It makes sense to pick up the required steps and skills so that you learn the technique of running a business and get a different kind of experience.
Before starting any business it is better to research the market trend. If the product you are coming up with is the need of market then surely you will get success.
Discover yourself and find out your strengths and weaknesses. Once done, try to nurture your strengths.
Successful entrepreneurs are confident, self-motivated and flexible as they also understand their own limitations. They are ready to think out of the box and have the courage to do the things that others may not. They are ready to accept the failure but they are also ready to start all over again.
At every step, they learn a new lesson, however, hard it may be. And they always come out on top as the outcome is the new, improved and acceptable. They turn their idea/concept into reality. They bring it to the market and make it a viable product/service that people need. And the most important thing, they never lose, because either they win or they learn.
