I have been offline for most of the year due to illness but it's good to be back.
Was having a recent discussion about mindset with a colleague. More specifically, clients / students who believe that you have to be a rocket scientist to make it on line.
Funny enough, I have found the the smarter you are, the longer it takes. In particular, people who are more academic.
Now this is a general observation so if you have a masters and kicking butt, don't get p1ssed at my opinion, ok?
I have found that it takes a unique attitude to make it as an entrepreneur. A sort of rebel / free spirit.
Maybe it's why a lot of IT people fail at IM?
Anyways, I'd really be interested in your views, where you've come from and what have you found your background to be a limiting factor?
So do academics make good entrepreneurs? And what do you think makes one?
