What’s Inside the Mind of an Entrepreneur


We are now in the age of entrepreneurism. How can we be sure? For starters, more than half of millennials consider themselves to be one. What does this mean?

According to a whopping 90% of the people polled for this new infographic from ODESK, it means that these “entrepreneurs” consider themselves risk-taking, self-starting and visionary opportunity seekers—not necessarily company starters. They are convinced that entrepreneurialism is a state of mind, and 72% say that they wish to quit their day jobs and work independently—and 61%  say that they’re likely to quit within the next two years.  Not surprisingly, a desire for greater freedom is the chief motivation for the exodus, with 92% of would-be entrepreneurs claiming liberty to choose where they work as being very important.
