Does "Luck" make a Successful Entrepreneur?

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.” A simple quote by Gary Player (the golfer), sums up our answer when we ask if luck makes a successful entrepreneur.

Statistics tell us that 75 percent of new businesses fail within the first year, and 90 percent will have closed their doors within five years. As a consultant who operated two service oriented business, one a failing mess and the other a surprising success, I can tell any aspiring entrepreneur that whatever happens to the operation, she or he will come out of it a stronger and wiser person.
