A new Yahoo survey (via Just an Online Minute) finds that two thirds (66%) of American adults say they’ve considered starting their own business. That was down from 72% in a similar survey conducted last year.
It would be interesting to see how that compares to other countries or world regions.
Other interesting tidbits include – 70% of respondents who were between 45 and 54 and 72% of respondents that were 55 and older said that “I will never be too old to start my own business,” which is an increase from last year when the numbers were 54% and 58% respectively.
One has to wonder what the underlying reasons for these shifts are.
