Creative Mind: Entrepreneurs strive to create more opportunities in industry and in their daily lives, providing more employment options and ultimately having a positive impact on society, income, lifestyle, values, among others. Their nature is to find solutions to problems. Their minds are constantly challenged by different factors that force them to go beyond their comfort zone. Thus, creativity is one of the most valued skills they have, and since creativity can be trained, it is important to understand how our mind can break old patters to formulate new ideas.
