What is the difference between entrepreneurs vs buisness man. Isn't they same?
All entrepreneurs are businessmen but not all businessmen are entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs create businesses. Many businessmen operate a business they may have acquired through purchase, employment or through family connections. It doesn't matter - just get out there and sell something!

When you were an entrepreneur it used to mean something else like being on the cover of the magazines & it's just thrown around nowadays by everyone like someone working any jobs with a side hustle now.

For the current business context and environment, usually entrepreneurs are pursuing new fields and business models, and make money through capital appreciation, grow the business to flip it to a buyer who is willing to pay a higher price, or eventually make it a public company. Profitability is not an immediate concern. As a result of that goal, seeking investment is usually a must to survive the long haul.

Businessmen, who happen to be not entrepreneurs (as all entrepreneurs are businessmen but not vice versa) usually pursue in tried and true industries/business models. Profitability within a short to medium time frame is a must. As a result there is usually no need to seek too much external money as business could be bootstrapped.

In general, one is someone who starts a business while the other is somehow who works in an already established business.

I see Entrepreneurs as those who have multiple streams of income at once all over the world.
Businessman you can see in different shades of performance wherever you walking around town. You'll find many in different companies and they don't necessarily have to be dressed in a suit. They don't own the company, but made represent the company.

Example: I watched the medication businessmen go doctor to doctor dressed in suit. Usually, a brief case, business card, give out free samples, literature, have an appointment book, and the represented the company they worked for. Often, they had business meetings at the hospital in different departments of the corporation.

The Entrepreneur own the company of the medication, but you never see them in person.

A Businessman is a person who runs the business on their undertaking business while an entrepreneur is someone who first initiates a product or business idea.

i don't think so because $ is not only thing what all want.
They're just two different words that can mean the same thing or not, it doesn't matter. Your actions matter, but these definitions don't.
