2. An idea is the ultimate requirement
Undoubtedly idea is very important but there are many other things which should be present to make it work. A good idea can give you a head start in the entrepreneurial world. But if its not worked upon and supported it can fall, and on other hand a mediocre idea with perfect backing can succeed,
3. Its a free job
It’s true that you’ll be the one setting most of the rules. It has unlimited freedom and you are the own boss.

Sooner or later, it all depends on the structure of the business.
5. Entrepreneurs are meant to be.
