Are You an Intentional or Unintentional Entrepreneur?

By Carleigh Lowe Monday, July 27, 2009

I grew up with parents who owned their own business since before I was born so the model of working for yourself has always been a part of my experience. I have always thought that there are certain people who know that someday, when the time is right, they want to be their own boss. These people are essentially setting the intention to become an entrepreneur. Recently though, I have been thinking about those who are just the opposite. That is, people who have been quite satisfied with working for somebody else yet, at some point, due to various factors, they find themselves in the situation where their only option to continue making an income is to work for themselves. They essentially become unintentional entrepreneurs.

I am wondering: are you an intentional entrepreneur or an unintentional entrepreneur? How has this affected your experience of owning your own business? We would love to hear from you; please leave your thoughts in the comment section.
