Being an entrepreneur boils down to being in a tight spot with no other option but to come up with a plan to provide for yourself and your loved ones. I believe that's why Zimbabwe has so many entrepreneurs, in comparison to South Africa where many don't see it as a matter of life and death, even though the small to medium sector is crucial for the economy. Sadly, even the most talented entrepreneurs in Southern Africa don't always get the right opportunities, and that's one of the biggest challenges they face.
