Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.
Erich Fromm (1900 – 1980) Psychoanalyst
If we can look past the masculine language I think this quote from Erich Fromm is wonderful. I think everyone should have a flirt with enteprise nad entrepreneurship to sdee if it provides them with a vehicle for becoming what he/she potentially is. However I am also sure that for many the flirtation will end up with rejection – and rightly so.
My concern is that for those providing services to support ‘entrepreneurial flirtation’ the cost of rejections is high as those paying for services what to see flirtation come to fruition in business start-ups and success. People walking away from entrepreneurship – even if it is the right thing for them to do – will seldom be rewarded by the funders.
