“What is an entrepreneur?” you may ask.
According to Google an entrepreneur is, “a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so.”
On Merriam-Webster the definition of an entrepreneur is, “one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.”
Entrepreneurs create something from nothing. They are the ones that take an original idea, believe in it and pursue it to the best of their ability. Entrepreneurs are both the dreamers and the risk-takers. They do whatever it takes to figure out how to solve a problem.
Whether it is building a system that will create value or managing the productive output of a team, the entrepreneur is forced to think outside of the box, on their feet and through every nook and cranny. An entrepreneur who solves his own problem, in essence, creates a solution for other people. They go from 0 to 1.
An entrepreneur dreams, produces and makes things. Sometimes they fail and other times they create art. They move fast and break things, discovering tremendous insight about themselves in the process. They are the brains behind the operation and oftentimes are the ones who come up with the idea in the first place (though don’t always get credit).
It’s tough being an entrepreneur, but the rewards are sweet.
“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t”
Entrepreneurship is a way of life – applicable to all human economic activities. Entrepreneurship is the art of building your vision.
No matter what the pursuit is, entrepreneurs define their own reality. They know how to dream big, set goals and achieve great things.
