How to be a Young Entrepreneur

Are you a young entrepreneur?  Do you want to start a business now or in the future? It's an attractive option for many people.

Some people call this the "era of the entrepreneur", see the entrepreneur as a folk hero, and enthusiastically urge young people to become one.  "Being your own boss" is a deeply held American ideal. 

On the other hand, even though more than 60 percent of adults say they would like to be self-employed, only about 10 percent are.  And, few young people are self-employed -- about 4 percent of those 16 to 24 years old.
