Many potential entrepreneurs exist however few pursue the dream:
- 63% of 20-year-old plus want to start a business
- 82% of young people want to start their own business, according to research
With a whopping 48% of Canadians wanting to become an entrepreneur, why is there such a low percentage (6.02%) of entrepreneurs that own a business as their main job considering how many want to start a business?
The mindset is holding them back:
- I’m not an entrepreneur.
- I’m not going to succeed.
- I’m not worth that much
- I’m not a salesperson.
- I’m not a good leader
