Much debate surrounds the notion that an entrepreneur is born with innate entrepreneurial abilities. Many believe that specific genes are present in all successful entrepreneurs. In fact, a 2008 study of identical versus fraternal twins concluded entrepreneurship has a genetic link.

Hi Holly,

I think optimism is a huge imperative for entrepreneurs. Creating a company out of nothing requires it. The question is, do you think a positive outlook can be learned or must we be born with it? The old question? Is an entrepreneur born or made? Your thoughts?

Hi Heather, The study cited in my Forbes post concluded that the tendency to become an entrepreneur is genetic. HOWEVER, I believe because of what I have observed in successful entrepreneurs, six behaviors dictate how successful the entrepreneur is in his or her endeavors. Optimism or a positive outlook is one of those six behaviors (or habits)!
