Are entrepreneurs born or made

CNNMoney magazaine online had an article (Are Entrepreneurs born or made) today on whether entrepreneurs are heavily influenced by genetic factors or made.

For me, the article really caused a strong reaction.  The idea of potential entrepreneurs never taking their chance for self employment due to some genetic factor really upset me.

No offense to other countries in the world but I believe in the United States, you have a better chance of realizing your dream to do whatever you want to do.  If you want to open a bakery then create your business plan and if it is sound then implement it.  The same is true for whatever you are passionate about and have the skill and education to offer to the public.  Obviously you need certain formal training and licenses in medicine, law, and such but you get the point.  I believe your passion to do something in life will be a great advantage to you in making your dream come true. 

Read the article mentioned and decide for yourself. My take is entrepreneurs may be made and not just born with a special genetic recipe to become an business owner.
