Any entrepreneur will probably tell you that a business plan or a great education can only go so far when it comes to making it on your entrepreneurial journey, and they can never accurately predict the future. So many things can happen along the way, and the vision you start out with for your entrepreneurial venture is not necessarily the one you will end up with. There is no perfect plan or opportunity. The key is being open to changing direction along the way as opportunities present themselves; being prepared to make mistakes as you go along; and ultimately learn from each one of those experiences. As an entrepreneur, there is no substitute for experience as it will be one of the best teachers you can ever have. There is also nothing quite like learning under pressure as you are making it in business, so be open to a constantly evolving learning environment and take it all in - it will stand you in good stead.
