With the holidays right around the corner, now’s the time to think about that special gift for your favorite entrepreneur. (Maybe that’s you! Don’t forget yourself if you’re the entrepreneur!)
Entrepreneurs have been rising in numbers over the last few years. Chances are you either know an entrepreneur, or are one yourself. And, it’s no wonder. Take a look at these statistics about entrepreneurs from a recent Smallbizgenius article:
- 62% of billionaires are self-made.
- 62% of adults think that being self-employed is a good career choice (Yes, these two data points are the same. I think the adults surveyed in the second data point know about the billionaires in the first data point!)
- 15 million Americans are self-employed. That number is expected to grow to 27 million in 2020.
- 33% of entrepreneurs only have a high school diploma.
- 26% choose entrepreneurship because they want to be their own boss.
Entrepreneurship can be great for those who want to pursue it. You don’t always need a college degree, you get to be your own CEO and your goals and dreams are your own. However, it can be isolating and lonely, and requires those who walk the path to serve in many roles.
