QUIZ: Do you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur?

Do you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur? While starting a business isn't for the faint of heart, if you’re interested in a startup, and you’ve yet to make the leap into entrepreneurship, or you've already made the leap and you want to check in for some honest feedback, then this quiz is for you!

Maybe you've already got an idea, a hustle on the side, or you're simply attracted by the non-corporate, non-employee lifestyle; either way, there are lots of benefits to becoming your own boss. By boss, we mean being of superior service. There are certainly numerous perks to being your own boss, such as having more flexibility in your lifestyle to actually start enjoying your day job possibly even for the first time ever! It's also not uncommon for people with an employee mindset to look sideways into the world of founders and wonder if this could could be for them, too.

Give our short quiz a whirl, and if you have a friend or potential business partner who might benefit from this, forward it to them so they can take the quiz along with you!
