So many want to.
So few will. But a significant number will never even attempt to.
Start a business that is.
According to a recent OECD study, Entrepreneurship at a Glance, 2015, a majority of Americans (69% of men and 58% of women) want to one day start their own business.
Yet, only a small segment of those who want to start their own business actually will.
A Gallup poll revealed that a full 25% of Americans have considered starting their own business, but decided not to for a variety of reasons. By far, the number 1 reason most chose not to take the plunge was because they "liked the security of a steady income."
At a time when only a shade more than half the workers surveyed responded that they were happy with their jobs, it would seem strange that more people don't strike out on their own.
But, given the uncertain nature of starting a business, and the chances of it succeeding, it is understandable why many people choose to stay put.
For those who are still committed to founding their own business, it really comes down to mastering three simple concepts: Capital, Time and Knowledge.
