Entrepreneurship is a French term used to describe the act of creating and running a business.
Entrepreneurship is difficult because the failure rate is high. Many new entrepreneurs fail to anticipate the most common issue all new businesses face - how long it takes to get their first customer.
It can be as long as 6 months or up to a year before a budding entrepreneur would see his first customer. The majority of new businesses fail because the entrepreneur thinks he will have customers beating down his door the moment he starts up.
