To become a businessman or entrepreneur it take 3 things in my opinion, "Passion" "Risk" "Reward". I say passion because if you are not passionate about your work, product, service then the other 2 will never become a factor. Most people are scared to take the first step of becoming a Entrepreneur because it's a fancy word for being unemployed or self employed. Many people are fine with the security of working for someone else but lack the passion to make the jump and become their own boss. Risk is always what could happen, do I have enough overhead to pay my bills etc. You have to identify what will happen if you are not successful, will you lose everything and if you are too worried about the "Risk" then you have to go back and see if you are truly Passionate about what it is you want to become or what your business will be. The best part of this process is the "Reward" because this is what you will achieve whether it be money, prestige, etc. So, if you are passionate about something, if it's worth the risk, then the rewards can be plentiful. There will be many sacrifices that will come with being an entrepreneur, you will lose hours to work, you will lose hours of sleep, you will lose hours of spending time with friends and family. So, this is not something that everyone could do, because if it were easy everyone would do it.
