What makes an entrepreneur – luck or skill?

I am interested in a related question: why do some entrepreneurs have only one big success and many failures while others succeed again and again? Over my career I have worked for and admired various entrepreneurs. Some have enjoyed a significant success but have never really been able to repeat it, while others have demonstrated an apparent “magic touch”: if they were made penniless tomorrow they would amass another million within a year.

In some ways, of course, there is no substitute for luck, whether in business or any other walk of life. I like to use the analogy of a lottery player who scoops a multi-million-pound jackpot and then writes a book about how he came up with the winning numbers. The harsh truth is that there are similar cases in the business world. What about the grand vision and the great idea? Business. Federal Trade Commission. U.S. Constitution Online.
