What is an Entrepreneur?

by Michael Berry on August 7, 2013

A common definition of an entrepreneur is any person who organizes and manages any enterprise, usually with considerable initiative and risk. History is rich with countless examples of entrepreneurs in all areas of endeavor, personal and professional.

Look around you. Literally everything you see, everything that has been created is the result of the efforts of an entrepreneur; every product, building and physical manifestation that surrounds you, what you’re sitting in, the refrigerator that keeps your food fresh and the oven that cooks it, the television you watch, as well as the media that entertains you.

Please make a mental note of how prevalent it is that someone, at some time, has taken on the responsibility and risks of their dreams to create what is in front of you. This creative urge, which is at the heart of everything you see, is also in you! The ability to be equally successful and create what you want is also!

A common misconception is that being an entrepreneur is only about career, business and finances. While that certainly is a large part of life’s opportunity and challenge, it is only a small part of where you can apply your focus as an entrepreneur. It can also be in the areas of Relationships, Family, Spirituality, Friends, Love Life, Health, or any combination including other areas in your life that are important to you.

This blog is designed to help you become an effective and satisfied entrepreneur for whatever areas of your life you choose.

This can take unlimited shape or form. It is completely up to you.

Personal development is our business and our life.

There are so many entrepreneurs in the world today. It is true that many of them have done wonderful things that we relate with on a daily basis. I have never thought of entrepreneurship as something out of business but this post has shed a lot of light into this matter.

Genuine feelings of entrepreneurship inside a person are usually driven by an ability to see that they can create or produce a product or service of value to others, that will carry one’s personal stamp on it, helps him or her make money and let one be in control of one’s schedule, destiny and growth.

A person claiming to be an entrepreneur on the outside but a consumer inside is not going to change anything as long as he stays focused on what he wants from his success.

For an entrepreneur, the high is as much in producing and selling and ensuring smooth operation of business as it is in consuming. Without this high, its impossible to sustain oneself thru demands of business.
