...Entrepreneurs are born and not made An entrepreneur is ‘a person who has possession of a new enterprise, venture or idea and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome.’ So are entrepreneurs born? Or made? There have been many debates from businessmen to academics alike on whether entrepreneurs are born or made, but is it as straight forward as that? In this essay I will evaluate arguments both for and against this statement and conclude it with my own personal observation. The argument for this statement that entrepreneurs are born is a scientific one, with the questions being are there specific entrepreneurial genes and/or chromosomes. Some of the characteristics credited to entrepreneurs include extroversion, risk taker, persistence, independent, innovative, opportunistic and the need for achievement. These skills are the reason many believe they are from nature as they go above and beyond those of an ordinary office manager. Many believe that these are skills are innate in a person, that they are born with them and they are skills and characteristics that cannot be taught. (Scott Shane, wall street journal) ‘40 percent of the variation in the tendency to be an entrepreneur is inherited.’ Some people say that not anyone can become an entrepreneur; they have to have the right innate qualities from birth alongside the external influences for their talents to be recognized in business. “If the environment is not conducive then entrepreneurial......

...1) What is entrepreneurship? What are essential traits required to be an entrepreneur? What traits do you have or you don’t have to be an entrepreneuer? An entrepreneur is someone who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise. An entrepreneur is an agent of change. Entrepreneurship is the process of discovering new ways of combining resources. When the market value generated by this new combination of resources is greater than the market value these resources can generate elsewhere individually or in some other combination, the entrepreneur makes a profit.  Successful businesspeople have many traits in common with one another. They are confident and optimistic. They are disciplined selfstarters. They are open to any new ideas which cross their path. Here are ten traits of the successful entrepreneur. 1. Disciplined These individuals are focused on making their businesses work, and eliminate any hindrances or distractions to their goals. Successful entrepreneurs are disciplined enough to take steps every day toward the achievement of their objectives. 2. Confidence The entrepreneur does not ask questions about whether they can succeed or whether they are worthy of success. They are confident with the knowledge that they will make their businesses succeed. They exude that confidence in everything they do. 3. Open Minded Entrepreneurs realize that every event and situation is a business opportunity. Ideas are constantly being generated about......

Entrepreneurs in the Informal Economy

...Introduction The father of entrepreneurship, Joseph Schumpeter (1934), defines entrepreneurship as the ability a person to innovate in implementing changes in the market by coming up with new combinations. Cassim (1982) considers the informal sector participation as “a trap associated with impoverishment” and Habib (2005) considers the informal sector participation as “the survivalist response of marginalised persons with no alternatives.” The informal sector is a part of the economy that is not under the government control and therefore any business conducted in the informal sector cannot be regulated. This paper aim is to argue against the above mentioned assertions made by Cassim and Habib. Is it true that the participation in the informal sector is associated with impoverishment? Is it true that people engage into conducting business in the informal sector because they need to survive as they have no other alternative? These two questions serve as a foundation into developing an argument against the assertions made by Cassim and Habib about the informal sector’s participation. The argument reflects on the entrepreneurial potential and dynamics in the informal sector. This paper firstly discusses Cassim’s and Habib’s assertions to have a general understanding of what they meant. This is then followed by a brief overview of the South African informal sector and an argument against those assertions will be provided using useful example of informal sector participation’s...

...improve productivity, reduce absenteeism and turnover, and increase employee citizenship and job satisfaction. OB studies three determinants of behavior in organizations: individuals, groups, and structure. OB applies the knowledge gained about individuals, groups, and the effect of structure on behavior in order to make organizations work more effectively. OB is concerned with the study of what people do in an organization and how that behavior affects the performance of the organization. There is increasing agreement as to the components of OB, but there is still considerable debate as to the relative importance of each: motivation, leader behavior and power, interpersonal communication, group structure and processes, learning, attitude development and perception, change processes, conflict, work design, and work stress. Organizational behavior is a developing field of study, presenting new challenges to a manager’s understanding of work behavior and the ability to manage it effectively. This course addresses the following points: Organizational behavior studies the factors that impact individual and group behavior in organizations and how organizations manage their environments. Organizational behavior provides a set of tools—theories and concepts—to understand, analyze, describe, and manage attitudes and behavior in organizations.

... Entrepreneurs are born. Entrepreneurs are actually born. People are born with many inherent qualities, if they concentrate on that qualities then only that particular qualities would sharpen. Some qualities we would get from education & experience. Even if we concentrate on those particular qualities we would grow some level, but surely not grow to the entrepreneurship level. Though some, may be a few people who have been associated with people from the entrepreneurs level from long span of time, would learn & grow to that level. Learning is also an art with some people born with it.  They are indeed born. Like in other areas like sports, technology etc. there are certain inherent skills needed to be ingrained in a person for him/her to succeed in their chosen field. If it was easy to acquire skills and become an entrepreneur the whole world would have turned to that and we wouldn’t have a recession or other such problems. To be an entrepreneur, one needs to have a certain amount of killer instinct and risk taking ability. A man went into a great city and asked an old man, where are these leaders born? The old man replied no leaders are born here only babies are born.  BORN - According to me, attitude is the most important personal characteristic, and one that cannot be trained. The attitude of the entrepreneur affects the early success of the venture; the same attitude needs to be present in the firm’s employees to continue the entrepreneurial energy that......

...As for my first assignment for entrepreneur’s subject, I would like to discuss about the criteria and how the entrepreneur should think. First and foremost the entrepreneur character can be build, can be groomed from experienced and some are born with the DNA in their blood!. Who is the entrepreneur? Entrepreneur is someone can see opportunities and situation in which new goods, services, raw materials and organizing methods can be introduced and sold at greater than their cost of production. Someone with the character of entrepreneur will always see problems, challenges and uncertainties as an opportunity for them. The only job that don’t have any qualification to apply is an entrepreneur. Anybody can be an entrepreneur, once they sustain in this field over failure because failure is the only thing guaranteed. How they respond to failure determines their success. Successful entrepreneurs are paid for their high tolerance for stress and pain. Setbacks, obstacles and challenges are painfully common elements of entrepreneurship. Most people react to these hurdles with stress and pessimism, with an attitude that obstacles are negative experiences that only hinder progress. As an entrepreneur, they encounter so many challenges they simply can’t afford to react this way. Instead, successful entrepreneurs view challenges as opportunities. Each challenge or setback reveals a key opportunity to grow -either to improve upon an existing weakness or take measures to avoid experiencing a...
