"Entrepreneurs are calculated-risk takers," says Money Magazine Article.

 I'm in the middle of reading an article in the Money magazine May 2012 issue titled, "How to be a 'Boomerpreneur'" by Donna Rosato and it outlines advice for people who are considering becoming an entrepreneur - running your own business and being your own boss.

It says the first step is to "see if you've got it." It says that "entrepreneurs are calculated-risk takers" and that these are the questions you should ask yourself to determine if this career path is right for you:

1) Have you set high goals for yourself?

2) Are you fiercely competitive, always looking to what's next?

3) Have you thrived amid uncertainty?

4) Do you enjoy making decisions?

5) Are you quick to adapt?

6) Have you maintained your drive as you've aged?

I can say yes to most of these questions, which has me feeling very good about my decision to start my own website last year and about starting a business with my husband a few months ago in the direct selling industry. It's one thing for people to tell me that I have leadership qualities and I'd be great in my business, but another when I can read a list of questions to ask of myself and know that they are right!

Can you answer yes to these questions? I'm sure most at this WAHM group can!
