According to Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, an entrepreneur is "one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise." An entrepreneur also can be described as someone who is self-employed, creates his/her own earnings and opportunities in the form of a business, contract or freelance work. You've probably heard stories of someone starting a business and becoming filthy rich. These stories are exceptional cases, not the norm. Starting up a business and making it a success is hard work. It usually takes three to five years before a business reaches cruising speed. The business owner works like a dog before this happens. Not everyone is suited for self-employment. Some people are happy working for others. They don't have to worry about the responsibilities of business ownership and all that goes with it. They are perfectly satisfied to let someone else deal with the stress. Those who like being their own bosses prefer the freedom of working at their own pace and making their own decisions. They find risk exciting and challenging. What is your preference? Do you have the right stuff to be your own boss? Do you think it would be easy to work for yourself? Activity Titles
