There are several factors that motivates me to start my own business, a) I come from a

person who will work for some one else or in a large company, and this became truth over

I’m afraid that my clients reject my business idea

It will put an end to a dream and a long time project, based on need identification. It
will also raise my ability to transform a good idea to a business

I will take more risk and work really harder
10. What do you want to add
What I regret is the fact that there are many professors who are entrusted to teach
entrepreneurship, although they may be good academics, they never start a business in
their entire life and more over some of them never work in a company. I also had a
chance to have a professor who was using marketing materials that were more than 20
years old, when we mentioned new marketing approaches such as social media, e-
commerce etc. he refused to listen to us.
