Chapter 9: What is an Entrepreneur?
Entrepreneurs are people who do not wait for something to happen, they make it happen. This sums up a true entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs have vision and are prepared to explore every opportunity to see if they can make it work. They also have no problem in admitting a mistake. If they get it wrong they close it down and start again. Nothing puts them off trying again and again until they are a success.
Entrepreneurs use what they have been blessed with, eyes, ears and a brain. They explore every avenue constantly looking for ideas and information that they can use for financial gain. They are not always innovators but they have the ability to makes something old look new, they reinvent.
There is so much that can be learned from being observant.
