Owning a business, becoming a boss is the dream of most employees, but not all are living this dream. Traditionally, new business advisers focus on hard components of planning including marketing; financial and legal aspects; aligning the idea with the business opportunity and the possible markets. Although it is essential to understand this hard side of starting a business, it is equally important to appreciate the soft side (of starting a business) by recognising and appreciating the motives, values and drives a potential entrepreneur has to offer. This paper considers the question – is entrepreneurship the right path for a given individual?
