There are large amounts of information available to teach people how to become entrepreneurs. However, we often find that we cannot use it. The information refers to ideas, obstacles, expansions, policies and funding opportunities. The sources often highlight other successful entrepreneurs that used the same models or information in order to start their business or to progress.
Skills and education are often associated with success, however, the two seem to be interchanging when it comes to entrepreneurship. If we look at IT specialist, often they complete their undergraduate degree, get a job for a year and soon realise that they could consult and become an independent service provider to their current employers. Why? and How?. Another example is an engineer or mechanic whether qualified or not, often work in a company for a few years and decide to start their own businesses, be independent and create jobs.
We need to realise that the fear to start your own business is sometimes due to the amount of information is available. We often use this information to suppress our dreams of becoming job creators. One does not need to be skilled and educated to start a journey of entrepreneurship. Dealing with poverty, inequality, and unemployment has to start with understanding that you know enough to take the first step.
