The 6 Skills Every Entrepreneur Needs

On the path to freedom, you have many options at your disposal.

You could find your freedom by joining an Ashram in india or a Buddhist monastery in Japan. You could make your creative work your priority and just live a life doing what you love, despite any consequences.

Or you could do what most people do. Wait until retirement before thinking about that stuff. You have your options.

But there's a final choice. Our personal favourite at ikario. And that's entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship is a pathway to the freedom most of us want.

Success, however does not come down to that magic bullet drop-shipping business or the next big idea that will guarantee overnight success. It comes down to your skills.
