Can You Be An Entrepreneur?

Many hard-working and imaginative people often wonder if they have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. 
You will need these three qualities at a minimum:  passion, vision, and perseverance.
Passion drives your enthusiasm and creativity.  You will need to find a good idea, invent something, or discover something useful to society.  Whatever it is, it must energize you and propel you into action.
Next, vision.  Vision is the ability to see the future result of bringing your idea to fruition (presumably an important product, software app, societal benefit, etc.) that can be the basis for a profitable business.
Finally, perseverance.  You need perseverance to overcome all obstacles and endure all setbacks.  In brief, you must be resilient and resolute.
If you have at least these three qualities, you can be an entrepreneur.
