Friday March 14th 2014 Why People Take The Entrepreneurial Challenge -New idea,process, or product -Independence -Challenge -Family pattern -Profit -Immigrants You have to be very independent, self motivated and self driven because you don’t have a boss. If you don’t want to do the work don’t do it but your company will suffer. People started wanting more than job security and started venting out. A large group thought that it was risky. Staying in the company they were they thought was less risky. People who had worked for companies for decades realized that there is no job security for life, especially if there are lower cost options out there. More people are starting to be independent and venturing out. You have to be a person who thrives in this type of environment.
