Can anyone be an entrepreneur? Bill Aulet, the director of the Martin Trust Center For MIT Entrepreneurship, sure thinks so. In an interview with The Boston Globe, Aulet gives his insight on the development of a startup company.He claims that proper education is key, and anyone can be educated. Here are some other highlights:
Entrepreneurship Belongs to the Disciplined
Bill Aulet believes that entrepreneurship can be taught but few universities address the overwhelming desire for such courses. In response, he has written a book (Disciplined Entrepreneurship: 24 Steps to a Successful Startup) that seeks to mentor those looking to create their own business.
The Demand for Entrepreneurship Never Ceases
Entrepreneurship is a response by people who don’t see themselves working in big firms or on Wall Street. While a large number of people might share this approach, the country can stand to have many up-and-coming self-starters developing companies. Not everyone can have their own business, but there is always plenty of room.
Success = Failure + Failure + Failure + Failure …
Failure happens. This truth is to be expected, but it shouldn’t be accepted with resignation. Entrepreneurs need to approach their startup with a never-say-die attitude. Failure could be bad, but it is in the past—the goals are still out there to be attained.
