You may find many people arguing that entrepreneurial drive is a trait acquired at birth. But the other group disagrees and believes it to be acquired at any stage of life and actually they are right when you see some people starting up in late fifties and above!

1- The Dream; It’s not a dream in real context, but the ‘vision’ actually which enables them to look into the future and have a bigger picture. Vision is all about having an idea with measurable goals and the strategy to achieve those.
2- Belief; since, it’s you who will be the main driving force behind your new business, so you need faith in yourself.
