Does being an entrepreneur require you to be a good programmer or good at coding?

Not at all.

it requires you to be good at making things. Or to put it another way - seeing things through.

in some ways I regretted becoming a programmer because it prevented me from learning about making money and running a business.

Ask any programmer who has made the transition and they’ll tell you something similar.

On the other hand, being a programmer helps because it forces you to think of all the possibilities in any endeavor. It’s like playing chess - you constantly look at all the moves on the board.

So in that sense it helps - but it can hurt it all you focus on is the programming.
