Entrepreneurs - Born or Made?

Presented by Ginger Myers, Regional Extension Marketing Specialist 

Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 12:00 pm 

Description: Have you ever had a fleeting thought of starting a business or new enterprise but raked it from your mind thinking it would never work?  Did you think your family and friends wouldn’t support you or were you lost because you had no idea where to start? If so, your thoughts were no different than those of other people who decided to go with the idea of becoming a business owner, revamping an existing business, or adding on a new enterprise.

Entrepreneurs question the status quo; they recognize opportunities for addressing needs, problems, and wants that others may not see.  They are the backbone of every community’s economy.

Entrepreneurs are risk-takers. They are no different than farmers who plant crops every year not knowing for sure what the yields will be; not knowing the effects of weather or market conditions on the family income. But, they differ in that they can manage some of the risks of starting a new business with guidance and a well vetted business plan.

Could you be an entrepreneur?
