What skills do you think an entrepreneur requires? I’ve been mulling it over and I’ve come up with four things: marketing, selling, a tolerance for risk, and persistence. You’re probably thinking what I’m thinking – who wouldn’t benefit from building capacity in those four areas? Perhaps we should all consider ourselves entrepreneurs. 


Asheesh Advani is a friend, a successful entrepreneur, and a social innovator who’s led Junior Achievement Worldwide since 2015. Considering that JA Worldwide has been nominated for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize, I’d say he’s doing okay. Asheesh has come full circle, because he’s also an alumnus of JA, and his participation in the group is actually what led him to entrepreneurship early in life.
