What Is An Entrepreneur?
By the time we meet this month, we will have completed our third year of the Youth Entrepreneur Partnership (YEP). This year has really gotten me thinking about entrepreneurship and thought it would be a good time to share some of what I have learned about the art and discipline of being an entrepreneur.
YEP is a great test tube for studying entrepreneurship and this year, especially, has brought back a lot of memories of my experiences with a small group of successful entrepreneurs that I have worked with in the past.
Let’s talk about the traits of a successful entrepreneur. What do they do that is different from the majority? Is there a distinction between a business owner and an entrepreneur? Are successful entrepreneurs born or made? Let’s dive into these questions and more.
