Forbes reports that 7 out of 10 new firms survive at least 2 years, 5 survive for 5 years, only 3 cross the mark of 10 years and hardly 2 go up to 15 years or more. So, if you are actually going to start a business, you must have traits of being a successful entrepreneur in order to make your business a success story.
