It made me want to consider how much of the decisions I make in my life are actually from my own initiative and how many are due to the incentives put in front of me.

The Call of the Entrepreneur (2007)
I felt the passion in each speaker to get the point across about how much of a great vocation being a entrepreneur is. The background behind China touched me and motivated me to continue pursuing my reams despite the misfortunes of my current situation. Despite the amazing passion to be someone and do something amazing we also need to remember and take into account the most important factor about becoming an entrepreneur which is to be able to create synergy between like minded individuals to encourage them to work together and towards their dreams. It has reminded me that no mater when or how I manage to reach my goals of becoming an entrepreneur and achieving my dreams that I will not forget to help and motivate others.
