3. Completely unconventional
Entrepreneurs are always out-of-the-box thinkers, and as Jim Blasingame, the host of the Small Business Advocate Show, says: “The entrepreneur eats conventional wisdom for breakfast.” This is often why traditional education structures result in entrepreneurs, who may be very intelligent, failing in the system because it is simply too conventional for them. Yet these people can become wildly successful innovators and business owners after leaving school.
Take for example Thomas Edison, a legendary innovator, whose teachers told him that he was too stupid to learn anything or Albert Einstein, who was ostracised because he could not learn using traditional methods.
