Is being an entrepreneur innate or does it develop over time? Kym Huynh, co-founder of WeTeachMe, believes that one is born into it. “You’re born an entrepreneur. There are inherent traits and characteristics that consistently manifest over and over and over in one’s life. It’s only when you reflect that you connect the dots; that the behavior is consistent being an entrepreneur,” he professes.
Born to Be an Entrepreneur
The son of hardworking immigrant parents, Kym lives and breathes the example they set for him. Thinking of them, he says, “they left Vietnam after the second World War and came to Australia as refugees… They left an entire world behind them— their culture, family, language and innate sense of belonging—and started life again in a strange and foreign land. This required courage, bravery, unrelenting persistence, and dogged resilience; qualities that I live and breathe each and every day.”
