Hello, in terms of paths to wealth, what are the advanatages and disadvantages of entrepreneurship compared to investing/trading?

Also, is there a difference in abilities and traits between top entrepreneurs and top investors/fund managers/traders? In other words, is there a difference in the abilities required to be a Gates or Sam Waltob versus to be a Warren Buffet/George Soros/Steven cohen?

Thanks

Being an entrepreneur is much more difficult than investing. I'd rather leisurely invest in a company and let some other poor fool spend 24-hours-a-day-7-days-a-week worrying about actually running that company.
