ABSTRACT
Through the use of structural equation modeling (SEM), on data obtained from the Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics (PSED), this research takes the first step toward developing a theory of the entrepreneurial career. Building on research from the areas of entrepreneurial traits, career development, and occupational choice, a theoretically-based model is presented and tested. Results support the differentiation of entrepreneurs from those with no current entrepreneurial intentions, representing an important first step in defining the entrepreneurial career.
