Carol Roth on Whether Entrepreneurs are Born or Made

Written By: Catherine Morgan | Comments Off on Carol Roth on Whether Entrepreneurs are Born or Made

Are entrepreneurs born or made? Is it nature or nurture?

Like most things, the answer is, “It’s complicated…”

As you probably know, Carol Roth is the New York Times bestselling author of The Entrepreneur Equation, so she has given a lot of thought to this topic.

In this short interview, we talk about the importance of learning how to take risk and learning how to fail – because you will fail. It’s a certainty. Therefore, it’s important to learn how to fail fast, fail cheaply, and never fail the same way twice.

As an entrepreneur, you will live in a constant state of chaos, so you might as well get used to it.

You’ll have to watch the interview to see where Carol falls on whether being an entrepreneur is an innate ability, or whether it can be learned.
