Making the decision to become an entrepreneur is a major commitment, with huge implications for skills and lifestyle. Yet there is no standardized testing or certification required or available anywhere to help you decide if you are a good fit for entrepreneurship, or entrepreneurship is right for you. An MBA or other academic credentials just don’t do it.

Martin - Very useful list. I would add couple of more items to the checklist.

1) Assess if you can accept failure, learn from it and move on. If you are of the type who takes failure personally and refuses to look beyond that you will not succeed as an entrepreneur. You are bound to get failure at some point in entrepreneurship.

2) In Tip #7 I would also add "Honey" along with Money. The relationship with your wife and family is very critical to your success as an entrepreneur. You will need all their support and encouragement.
