Perhaps it's better to clarify a couple of things. First of all, although SQ is linked to spirituality it is by no means a metric of how spiritual a person is. In practice, it is a heuristic to assess one's sense of ethics and holistic thinking. People can have that even without being spiritual, though most spiritual people would assess these qualities to some extent. However, in my experience, most entrepreneurs are not spiritual people, even if they have these qualities to some extent. Also, this article romanticizes entrepreneurs a bit. No doubt they are courageous people, but the majority of the entrepreneurs I've met don't have a clue of what they are doing or how they can accomplish that. So, calling them visionaries is a bit of hyperbole and potentially an insult to truly visionary people. Tesla was a visionary, for example, but he also knew how to make his visions reality, something that most entrepreneurs struggle with.

There is a small proportion of entrepreneurs though that have all the qualities mentioned here. These are the ones who succeed and (unfortunately) are the exceptions, the outliers of the entrepreneurs group. These are the ones we tend to remember though, bringing about a selection bias on this whole topic. For every Bill Gates and Elon Musk out there there are hundreds (or more) of equally motivated entrepreneurs who failed and failed miserably. Let's remember that.

Also, regardless of the risk associated with entrepreneurship, there is no doubt that having it and cultivating it when it's missing, is a must for every economy that wants to be robust and even anti-fragile. After all, the fragility of the member is what brings about robustness in the whole. Perhaps, as N. Taleb wisely says, we should commemorate all the entrepreneurs who fail, since it's their sacrifice that made the economies they belonged to more sustainable and the success of those few entrepreneurs we remember worth pursuing...
