Do You Have What It Takes to Make It as an Entrepreneur? Everyone has ideas, but it takes a certain personality to successfully leave behind the security of a day job.
"Entrepreneurs, generally, are more about doing than talking about doing, and if that's not in your nature, I think you're going to struggle as an entrepreneur," says Benjamin Yoskovitz, a Halifax, Nova Scotia-based angel investor and vice president of product for software-development platform GoInstant.
Jason Lucash, co-founder and CEO of Costa Mesa, Calif.-based OrigAudio, sums up the entrepreneurial psyche this way: "The entrepreneur is terrified of being the person who sees that someone else came up with the same idea five years from now."
Here, Lucash and Yoskovitz ask the questions you'll need to determine whether you've got what it takes to leave the corporate setting behind.
