You will not make money when you are always in the office or attending conferences all the time networking with people without converting those networks into sales.

Entrepreneurs are not made in incubators, or air-conditioned co-working spaces.

Entrepreneurs are not made in coffee-shop meetings.

Entrepreneurs are not made in the classroom.

You can have a PhD in entrepreneurship, but that doesn’t make you an entrepreneur, it makes you an academic maybe.

Entrepreneurship is a lot like athletics. You need to practice and train. Read books. Listen to podcasts. Look for role models/mentors.

But ultimately:

Entrepreneurs are made in the art of action.  

You have to run the race.

The classroom will give you important business tools, but it is the application that matters.

Entrepreneurs are made in the streets, in the race, in the trenches, prototyping, engaging, selling, taking risks, experiencing failure and picking yourself up.

and yes:

Entrepreneurs are made.

PS: By all means go to school, register for that business course, learn what you need to learn, it is important to know things to avoid in your entrepreneurship journey, but most importantly apply what you learned. The real prize goes to those who apply.
