This is a really interesting thread.

High School, when the teachers got us thinking of career paths was the first time I had a passing thought that I would really enjoy and might eventually own a business. I have to say at that point I really didn’t think it would become a reality, but here I am now living that reality! For me it was a mix – partially my entrepreneurial nature, partially circumstantial and also partly to do with encouragement from those around me. I said something to my spouse only a year back like ‘We had always spoken of my owning a business but because of the initial overheads I never thought that I actually would’.

I think that there are certain traits that a person is born with that might put them closer to a potential as an entrepreneur, or might not.
