Are you an Entrepreneur?

August 12, 2008 at 1:23 pm Leave a comment

Entrepreneur, according to Webster’s, is one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise. It is the combination of those three elements; management, organization, and risk, that enables one to run a business. But, entrepreneurs aren’t necessarily great managers or organizers. They are the creative thinking types that start businesses, hire people to manage them, and outsource work involving organization (typically assistants or equivalents).

So what makes an entrepreneur? Passion, determination, and persistence. Blah, blah, blah… We all know this is true. You need passion to follow our dream, determination to get a loan or funding, and persistence to keep making sales. And so if this is the case, then we are ALL entrepreneurs. Think corporately; some are passionate about their desk job because it pays the bills and provides occasional bonuses. They are determined to get a raise, and are persistent in showing up to work on time. Think small business type; workers are passionate about the company culture, determined to help grow the company, and persistent in contributing to sales objectives. Think the mother type; moms are passionate about their children, determined to help them succeed in life, and persistent in keeping them happy and healthy. Think the Olympic athlete type; they are passionate about their sport, determined to win the gold, and persistent in training their bodies to be the best in the world. Get my point?
