Being an entrepreneur can certainly be a positive experience for your application. Starting your own business is a good way to show initiative and leadership. On the other hand, if your only work experience is as a self-employed individual you might encounter some trouble if you later intend to enter the "conventional" workforce. Thus, there is an element of employment risk that should be kept in mind.

If it is clear that you are a serious entrepreneur and you intend to continue/resume your business after the MBA then the employment risk is much less of an issue.

I think being an entrepreneur is higly regarded in the MBA Admissions Process, especially in terms of leadership and personal development. It will never be a weakness in your application. Good luck
