“I coont efen spel




an’ now I are one!”


     So you’re tired of working for someone else and want to be your own boss, eh?  You know people who’ve done it successfully and wonder what they have that you don’t? 

     Well, here’s an Entrepreneur Personality Test from Dr. Alan Jacobowitz.  Count the number of “yes” and “no” answers you give:

Here we go:

  1. When you were very young, were your parents, close relatives or close friends entrepreneurs?

  2. Did any of that business carry over into your home while you were growing up? 

  3. Did you have a lemonade stand or a paper route as a kid?

  4. Was your academic record in school less than outstanding?

  5. Did you feel like an outsider with school classmates?

  6. Were you often scolded, punished or reprimanded for your school behavior?

  7. And TODAY, do you have difficulty getting satisfaction from any job with a large firm?

  8. Do you often feel that you could do a better job than your boss?

  9. Would you rather play sports than watch them on television?

  10. With books and magazines, do you prefer nonfiction to fiction?

  11. Have you ever been fired from a job or left one under pressure?

  12. Do you almost never lose sleep at night over your work or personal business?

  13. Would you rather jump into a project than plan one?

  14. Would you consider yourself decisive, a good thinker on your feet?

  15. Are you active in community affairs?

If you answered “yes” to 12 or more of the above questions, and you are not an entrepreneur already, you may be missing your big chance.  Tune in tomorrow to see if I can discourage you!  halalpiar
