In school, we’re taught to obey the rules, to do things by the book, and if you stray away from the pack, you’re quickly pushed back into the mold the education system puts us all into. If you had and thoughts of being an entrepreneur, the herd would drag you back in. A strong minded individual would be kicking and screaming. The true spirit of an individual.
Traditional school is the worst possible place for an entrepreneur.
An Entrepreneur thinks differently, and frankly, everyone thinks and learns differently. Which is why a system that makes everyone think the same is killing the entrepreneurial spirit. Entrepreneurs go against the norm, and refuse to be forced into a life or way of thinking. Entrepreneurs want to create, not follow a rule book created by someone else.
Entrepreneurship Can Rarely Be Taught In Class.
Today, education is changing. While most kids in school still don’t learn about money and business through high school, university business schools are now offering entrepreneurship programs for those interested in building their own business.
Any attempt to further the cause of entrepreneurship is admirable, but being a successful entrepreneur can rarely be taught in a classroom. Entrepreneurs have to be flexible, adapt to changing circumstances quickly. They have to have spirit. They have to fight through adversity. These things cannot come from school.
Where do Entrepreneurs Get an Education?
If you’ve ever met a successful entrepreneur you probably noticed they don’t like to waste time. Their time is valuable since they are doing so many things on their own. For most entrepreneurs, learning from their own mistakes and other entrepreneurs is the way to go. This is why incubators, networking events, and mentor-ship programs are great places to start for an education in owning your own business. Not only are these great places to meet people but they are also great places for resources like funding, accounting, marketing and technology—all things that entrepreneurs need.
So, do entrepreneurs need to be “smart” to be successful? Yes… just not in the way most people think of “smart”.
