One of my business clients (successful female entrepreneur from a very violent abusive background) asked my opinion on this article and theory that “without positive intervention negative experiences in adolescence might help discourage a girl from owning a business as an adult.” Also stating that genetic influence has no bearing on whether boys become entrepreneurs, but many social factors, including family influence, do prompt men to own businesses. For girls, genetic factors play a role in determining personality traits such as extroversion and emotional stability, and those traits can help sway whether girls become entrepreneurs. However, this new research adds the wrinkle that childhood trauma can still impede that genetic influence on girls.”

I have to say that after having a good laugh at the garbage of the new research led by Zhen Zhang, assistant professor in the W. P. Carey School of Business at ASU my opinion is Entrepreneurs (both male and female) are simply those who understand that there is very little difference between problems and opportunities most are intelligent enough to turn both to their own advantage. I believe that whenever you repress anything, your mind becomes focused on it. Have your own mind and have your own individuality. Only the sheep are part of the crowd. Be individual, on your own. Live life with your own eyes; listen with your own ears. The ordinary person is being used by their mind. When it becomes too much, when the mind starts using you completely in an authoritarian way, it is called madness. Everything that is being taught, and most people are following it is called madness. The more you become a part of society, the less and less you are an individual, the less and less you are natural. When you follow the rules of the game in society you are then living someone else’s life. That is called absolute madness. I experienced so much madness without really knowing how mad I was, to not share this would be a dishonour to anyone who wants sanity.
