Volition is a determinant psychological factor in entrepreneurship to better understand the behavior of entrepreneurs. This study analyzes the personal characteristics that determine the route of entrepreneurial actions by analyzing volitional skills of three categories of people: students, potential entrepreneurs, and active entrepreneurs. The results show that individuals mobilize volitional skills in a successive order, one after the other. In addition, this order is determined by the individual's progress on the process of creation that the model of volition in this study synthetizes determines such order.
