The Entrepreneurial Mind:

The old advice used to be “go and work for someone for several years before you try and start a business.” The thought was that you needed to learn about business, grow up, save some money, etc. Young aspiring entrepreneurs were discouraged from jumping in too quickly.

I rarely hear that kind of advice any more. We see growing numbers of young people leaving college and starting successful careers as entrepreneurs. Many even are starting their entrepreneurial careers while in school.
