Most entrepreneurs are like artists: passionate and starving

The title of this post is a quote  from Dan Martell, a Canadian entrepreneur who has built and sold several successful startups.  He pinned this quote in a blog post he titled Entrepreneurship Is Not A Career Move.

Although this may be a downer for some, most entrepreneurs are not successful in their pursuit of riches.  This is why the #1 reason you should become an entrepreneur should be your passion to create a solution for a problem, not for the money.  As Dan states:

I’m not sure when being an entrepreneur turned into a career but it’s a dangerous way to look at it. It’s like waking up one day deciding to become an artist. You don’t decide to become an artist, it comes from a passion to create.
