Entrepreneurship has nothing to do with age or how long you’ve been in the work force. Entrepreneurs success isn’t about rules, textbooks, or MBA’s, because many of the world’s most creative and successful business-people don’t even have a high school diploma, because they’re still in high school. Many very successful people are teenage entrepreneurs and are still going to high school. If you have a drive and a creative mind there is no need to wait until you’re out of high school.

“Even monkeys fall from trees every now and then”
Don’t be afraid to fail. The only way to assure you will not fail is to not try. You must take a chance to reach for the stars. So many people including me can look back on their life and wish they took more chances. Don’t let that be you. God gave you a gift inside of you. That burning to succeed or try something new is put there by God. You must trust that HE will help you through. Now that does not mean I am saying that God promises you success. It may be that you need to learn and grow to get where God really wants you. We can read throughout history about people that failed over and over only to succeed beyond their wildest dreams. There are no guaranties, that’s why it’s called entrepreneurship.
