Entrepreneurial spirit cannot be taught. There comes a point when you need to stop moaning and start doing things your way. In this video Simon La Fosse explains why he became an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurial spirit finds a better way to do business

I was getting a bit bored actually.  I think partly boredom, partly you I kind of felt I’d reached a certain part, a time in my life when I was, I had enough evidence about working in a certain way being a really effective way to work and a pleasurable way to work and I’d seen too many organisations that I’d worked for just, I’m not saying it, it sounds a little bit arrogant but not quite seeming to get that.  And so there comes a point where you’ve got to stop whinging and you’ve got to put your money where your mouth is and say “Actually, I think there’s a better way to do business and that’s what we’re going to stand for as a firm” and that was, I took a gulp,  remortgaged the house, as far as the bank was concerned to build an extension, which is yet to be built, and took the dive.
