Obstacles

7. What are you afraid of?

I’m afraid that my clients reject my business idea

8. Why are you afraid of that?

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

9. If the concern is taken away what will you do?

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.
