Infographic: 5 Reasons Homeschooling is Like Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is more than just going out and incorporating a business. It doesn’t just have to be building a product or launching a service and claiming a slice of equity in a company. It doesn’t even have to be solely an issue of business.

At its core, entrepreneurship is creative problem solving.

Entrepreneurs are people who see a need that is not currently being filled or served by existing options. They go out and create a solution to this need and fill a gap. They make people’s lives better off in the process.

Homeschooling is a type of entrepreneurship in itself. Homeschoolers are people who see the current services being provided in education as not fitting their needs and who decide that this will not prevent them from creating an education that best fits themselves or their children. Where most people would throw up their arms and give up, homeschoolers see a gap as an opportunity to provide something better.

There are a few things that homeschoolers do that make them entrepreneurs in their own right.
