Bill Gates, Entrepreneurial Activity, Entrepreneurship
The popular thinking of entrepreneurs in the recent past has often aimed at accomplishing what one wants by studying the opportunities and putting their strategies in shapes that work for them. Besides, entrepreneurs prefer embracing emerging opportunities through sheer persistence and
setting different platforms from the crowd rather than commit to many years of usual beating on the wall, hoping it would transform into a success door. Often, with the best entrepreneurs rarely speaking of every detail in their secrets of success, their excellence is drawn towards the
attributes of passion, persistence and initiatives as the winning prescriptions at the entrepreneurship pitch.
Entrepreneurship is formally put as embracing the risk of starting an enterprise with the information gathered and assembling the resources required without losing the spirit. However, without prior experience in the field, entrepreneurs easily lose heart and are unable to filter through the relevant concepts, thus dooming their ingrained ideas to failure. Despite the absence of a guaranteed formula to attain enterprise success, as prosperous entrepreneurs demonstrate unique paths; their thinking is ingrained to continue acting, learning, building and repeating the cycle as their initial ideas morph over time.
