Quick Entrepreneurial Gut Check
If you are considering going it alone — going the path of the entrepreneur — Daniel Isenberg has a nice, quick test to give yourself. As I have written before, many people thinking about entrepreneurship consider only the potential upsides — the freedom, not working for others and reaping possible financial benefits. But many people neglect to ask themselves if that lifestyle really suits them or if they possess the non-technical skills, like financial acumen, to succeed. Mr. Isenberg’s quick gut check helps potential entrepreneurs determine whether to hold off, or to look further into their small business ideas.
