Is Entrepreneurship a good Career option?

I find a Career in Entrepreneurship very interesting. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Entrepreneurship is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Entrepreneurship. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Entrepreneurship, when I came across: 

Guneet Puri's perspective!
Guneet Puri has worked in Entrepreneurship for 3 years. Guneet Puri has worked in Entrepreneurship as Co-founder in Bohemian Adventures. In Guneet Puri's own words, this is how Guneet Puri got into Entrepreneurship: "I was exposed to adventure sports at early age. My parents started taking me on trekking when I was 2 years old. Later on I went to Nehru Institute of Mountaineering from where I have done basic and advanced mountaineering courses. In the year 2014 I Co-Founded an adventure company called Bohemian Adventures. We organize climbing expedition, treks, cycling expedition, rock climbing, camping trips and day treks." 

Career Video on Entrepreneurship
In a video, Guneet Puri has talked about various aspects of a Career in Entrepreneurship. Guneet Puri started by explaining Entrepreneurship as: "Entrepreneurship is starting up or coming up with the new business idea for making profit. And also you convert your passion into profession." The video gave me so much food for thought.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Entrepreneurship and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Entrepreneurship. Guneet Puri touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:

  • Human Resource
  • Operations
  • Risk Management
  • Finance & Accounting
  • Contextual Knowledge
  • Management

Skills are the most important factor determining success in a particular Career.
Guneet Puri then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Entrepreneurship:

  • Marketing Skills
  • Versatility
  • People Skills
  • Communication
  • Industry Awareness
  • Computers

There are great positives of this Career.
Guneet Puri believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Entrepreneurship:

  • Job Satisfaction
  • Monetary Potential
  • Flexible Working Hours
  • Varied Exposure
  • Travelling

Challenges define a Career as much as the Positives of the same.
And, Guneet Puri believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Entrepreneurship:

  • Unorganized Support
  • High Risk Involve
  • Seasonality
  • Continuous Capital Requirement
  • Lack of Awareness
  • Initial Commitments

In the final section of the video Guneet Puri talks about How a day goes in a Career in Entrepreneurship. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Entrepreneurship, that I have ever come across. To see the full Talk, one needs to install the LifePage Career Talks App. Here is a direct deep link of the Video:
