    It's pretty hard; it's glorified but much of the time its lonely and stressful.

    Yes, being an entrepreneur can be the most difficult career path, but it's one of the most empowering and fascinating ones too. And depending on the level, it could be financially rewarding, but has high risks too. However, I imagine being a CEO of a company is more challenging or difficult, if it's a multi-million dollar industry with tons of employees under your command!

    Can be difficult as well as enlightening, always a gamble since you are betting most everything on if your idea or business path will work out or not.

    Yes and no. You are 100% responsible for the results of your decisions. In the other hand, if you have a good idea, you are free to take all the credit.

    Depends on the personality of the person, and their skill set. A hard core engineer that prefers to work alone in a basement is going to have a really hard time, while a wharton grad with an MBA and a side hobby of coding websites and open source tools may find it the only acceptable career path.

    Depends on what you consider difficult. I can tell you that it lacks security and requires a ton of responsibility & time, but yet it has the potential to be rewarding.

    Not necessarily, I can think of many other careers that are more difficult. And after all, if you have the passion for your product/service, you will enjoy what you're doing and won't seem difficult
