Are Entrepreneurs Born or Made?
By Hugh Massie, founder and CEO of DNA Behavior International
Like me, many of you instinctively knew that you had a strong desire to start a business and then at some point, the right innovative idea came along and in you jumped. Along the way, the entrepreneurial journey turned out much harder than you had expected—both emotionally and financially.
Having built five businesses over the past 21 years, one principle I stick to is the ability to manage my own behavior. Then add managing the behavior of the team, and you have the primary difference between success and failure. Did I always just know this, or where did I learn it? It begs the question, are entrepreneurs born or made?
