Some people are entrepreneurs because they always have been They started out running tiny businesses when they were very young and just learned to do it. Other people started business because they didn’t have choice Maybe they were laid off or they hard to change where they lived Or maybe they were forced by circumstances to start their own business Others have a passion about an idea or a vision that they want to start. I would imagine that many entrepreneurs start a business out of some kind deep yearning to do it; they have great desire, but it’s really driven by a sense that it was that they were made to do.

This article is for people who have a feeling they were meant to be entrepreneurs but don’t know how to put their desire into action. They don’t know to get things started. And when I say “get started,” I’m not necessarily talking about developing a business plan or even coming up with a business idea, which in many cases comes after the yearning but before a real resolve germinates. I meet a lot of people who have deep desire to do something different, but they aren’t what it is.
