Entrepreneur insights What serial entrepreneurs are made of

Is it fear of failure or over-optimism about success - or both - that drives entrepreneurs on to their next venture?

A successful entrepreneur who has built up a business from scratch and successfully sold it for a significant sum should be able to do it all over again with a new venture, only better. Right?

Wrong. Past success is of course no direct ticket to success in the future. However, gaining an understanding of your entrepreneurial tendencies so you can use them to best effect will stand you in good stead if, after exit, you’re keen to start again.
