Do Genes Help You Become An Entrepreneur?

There can be much debate as to if genes play a major or minor part in someone becoming an entrepreneur. You could say that entrepreneurs are born but developed. Your innate skills or the skills that you learn have to be nurtured or developed to better enhance or bring out what’s already in you. Some would say that it’s your environment that helps you decide whether or not to become an entrepreneur. Your environments such as home, school, friends, family, work, social, certain events or moments in your life etc….

  • But the question is do genes help?
  • Do genes or environment make you a better entrepreneur or do they just aid in the process?

You could say that it stems from both and sometimes one over the other. Being an entrepreneur could be learned & developed. But how well you learn stems from your genes. Genes play a big part in how good you become as an entrepreneur. Everyone has a talent but everyone isn’t capable of being an entrepreneur. Genes play a big part in your abilities but you have to have a nurturing, cultivating environment to go along with them. The genes give you your abilities to think, act, do, how well you learn, optimism, determination etc….

Entrepreneurship is first and foremost a mindset. Your genes play a big part in your mindset. Sometimes hard times or a non-nurturing environment can bring out some great entrepreneurs. Sometimes in situations like that, a person had that entrepreneurial gene already in them. It’s not really an “entrepreneurial gene” per se, but I mean that ability, skills, knowledge, drive, determination, will power etc…, to be an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs possess innate personal qualities that distinguish them from others. Entrepreneurs have certain characteristics, behaviors, values, attitudes etc… That stems from your genes. Many people have that entrepreneurial ability already instilled in them which can be developed even more. For others it could be worked on, developed or learned. But honestly…do you have it in you? It’s not just the environment that you grew up in but also business, school, social & working environments which could help you to uncover what’s already in you. Being a entrepreneur can be great. But becoming an entrepreneur depends on whether you have the skills to be one and if you decide to take on that role. Honestly for an entrepreneur, you either got it or you don’t.
