I'd say both. My mom and dad want NOTHING to do with entrepreneurship, but taught me a solid work ethic which is necessary for owning a business successfully. I've wanted to be on my own since I was young and just took the step about a month ago to leave my job and take my part-time business full time.
I think it really hit me in college when I was making $7/hour at my job (not bad for 10 years ago), yet made $45/hour after posting a flyer to tutor college kids in finance. Great topic.
