Accoring to dictionary.com the definition of an Entrepreneur is as follows:
A person who organizes and manages any enterprise, esp. a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.
I bring this up because I have been thinking a lot about being an entrepreneur lately. Thinking so much in fact that I have been looking at ways to re-invent the whole idea of entrepreneurship and the best place to start, in my mind at least is with the definition.
So here is my work in progress and I would love to hear what your thought are on the matter.
en⋅tre⋅pre⋅neur 2010 version
Entrepreneurs are people who like to experiment and fix things. They make corporations nervous and don’t always make the best employees. Entrepreneurs have minds of their own and a embarrassing wealth of ideas. Entrepreneurs have a habit of moving in on their superiors and whenever possible claiming power roles for themselves. Entrepreneurs are willing to take huge personal risks to reach their clearly defined goals and while they they don’t always end up on the winning side of things they have the fire and passion to keep trying.
I truly believe Entrepreneurship is a frame of mind and you don’t have to be the founder of something to be a brilliant Entrepreneur.
SO I ask you…..Are you an Entrepreneur?
