Hi Giovanni... great question about entrepreneurship. The best way to become an entrepreneur is to start a business. Many of todays biggest companies started out as small ventures once upon a time. Its never too early to start! Depending on what you like to do, you could even start right now. Let me know what kinds of things you like to do and I can help you brain storm some small business ideas.

Sounds like you might want to just invest money in the stock market in a specific company. You might start with a portfolio of "play money" or even a small amount of real money. It might also be good to start reading and sharing your ideas about which businesses you like in sites like SeekingAlpha.com.<br> Note: if you don't want to "work" you can't really be an entrepreneur.

Hi, Great question, lets start with the definition of Entrepreneur: A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so. So, you can see that operating any type of business can make you an Entrepreneur. If if you mow lawns on the weekends, sell lemonade in front of your house or wash cars in a parking lot... :)
In your case, I would suggest starting with something you are good at, have skills for or are passionate about and then start your research from there. Your business can be very small or as large as you want it to be...good luck!

Entrepreneurship is a fancy word for work and you won't succeed unless you learn the ins and outs of the business world.

Experience is mandatory for any position you apply for, and even more so if you are going to venture and look for capital.

I recommend asking yourself why you want to be successful. What drives you? What is your passion? Best of luck.
