The Question Matters

Accidental Entrepreneur

Posted in Change,Entrepreneurs by treyfinley1008 on December 8, 2009

In a recession, lots of new businesses get started.  Some by design, and some because there are no other options.  70% of first-time entrepreneurs in 2008 started businesses in the midst of the current recession. Though the article contains somewhat dated research, this quote describes me well:

“Even though we know many of today’s entrepreneurs came to start their ventures because of the economy, they are still seeking to make something out of opportunities they have observed rather than just starting a business to make ends meet.”

I didn’t look to become an entrepreneur, but entrepreneurship found me anyway.
