The surge of wanting to start a venture of your own is often referred to as “bitten by the entrepreneurship bug” as the bug is considered to be infectious because it affects people seriously. Often you are exposed to success stories of people rising from ashes to becoming millionaires or observe family members and friends close to you do very well in the entrepreneurial field, which inspires you to venture into entrepreneurship as well.
