The privilege of being able to have dreams, ideas and goals come to fruition, is the core of what we are able to experience because of the freedoms that are ours in America.
-Denise Burnett Stewart
Small business drives the American Economy. It thrives and survives no matter what may be going on in the main economy.
Unless we promote entrepreneurship, we will not have an exciting business atmosphere in our country.
What is an Entrepreneur?
Undeterred by failure, an entrepreneur sees value in going back to the drawing board, and realizes that every setback offers an opportunity for growth and reinvention. An entrepreneur is willing to work long hours, unafraid of taking risks, and determined to succeed.
An entrepreneur is often a sole proprietor, partner, or majority shareholder in an incorporated venture. An entrepreneur often works outside the structure and stability of an employer, and views this less secure career path as a challenge to be overcome rather than an obstacle to be avoided.
What it Takes to Be an Entrepreneur.
- An entrepreneur takes charge, and is determined to create new initiatives, businesses or companies.
- An entrepreneur develops or embraces new solutions, and is dedicated to transforming innovation into reality.
- An entrepreneur maintains flexibility, and is willing to change direction, accelerate, slow down, or even stop a venture.
- An entrepreneur remains accountable, and is responsible for the future of the company, project, or endeavor.
- An entrepreneur passionately pursues goals, and is strong enough to persevere when challenges and difficulties arise.
