Entrepreneurs are born, not made, Scientists say

Interesting article:

Very interesting. I have a hard time understanding why more people don't even try to start their own small business, or even a side business while they have the "security" of their regular job. This article gives some explanation to that.

Re: Entrepreneurs are born, not made, Scientists say

A couple of years ago my grandfather once asked me why I was getting out of the Army considering the pension I would recieve after 20 years of service. I told him it was in my genes to be an entrepreneur and invest in real estate full time. He had several small side businesses before he became a fireman and retired from the Panama canal. Even his sister owned several rental properties in Philly and retired with a comfortable net worth from it. I guess I was just following in the family genes rather than being a maverick.
