For those of us who haven't always felt like we were born entrepreneurs, what made you decide to start your own business? Did someone encourage you to give it a try or did an event trigger your ambitions?

Its something that I felt like doing for a long time now but didn't know how or have the money to.

You don't. You don't really wake up one day and suddenly say to yourself "I need to start a company." You know if entrepreneurship is right for you if along the way, during a walk or on the job, you come up with such an insanely amazing idea that no one has thought of before that you know that you just HAVE to capitalize on this opportunity.

I think it's the sense of being business minded, saving on money, thriftiness, and all the characteristics of being an entrepreneur, when you have those and you are business and profit minded, then you are an entrepreneur.

For me, it was the pain of going to work every day in Corporate America. It was the pain of absolutely hating what I do. I knew I had to make a choice to do better.

Same here, wandering wildman :) I just got so fed up with all the office politics, plus the agony of waking up at a certain hour, every day, 5 days a week, and only to get stuck in traffic, multiply that by 11 years and you'd probably understand why I just had to ditch the skirt and pumps and trade them with whatever is comfortable to wear :D But kidding aside, I just needed the freedom to express myself. I guess, we all have our own way of knowing if entrepreneurship is for us or not. What you need to do is search yourself, and see if you're happy with what you're doing. If the creative you is bursting to come out, then you'd better get serious and weigh the pros and cons of indulging that side of you ;)

You may not need to spent time on knowing that is business is suitable for you or not rather business will itself tell you if you are suitable for him. I know by getting oooooops from my employers ....

Hard to say if it is right for another person but you have to be willing and able to live and sleep with your business 24/7.

My aim is to be an successful Entrepreneur after completing my studies.

I believe we are ALL innately entrepreneurs in mind and in creativity... just look around your every day use and consumerism and in services...everything down to the cups that you drink coffee in the morning and the chairs that holds your sitting posture upright etc... are all man-made and created. We just need to access that 'entrepreneurial' thinking again...it is all in us, we just need to activate it again. Entrepreneurship is a form of mind-set and determination to succeed in what you truly believe in from idea concept towards making it happen and into commercialisation.

This brings me to the point of asking anyone to participate in a 5 mins survey to help revoluntionize a new reform of an entrepreneurship education and course/program development, all in creating a better world for economic, social and environmental changes.

"What are your views for a new entrepreneurship education?"

Here is the link for the survey:


Thank you for your participation :)
