It's funny you say that. I was trying to think of things that make money, but don't solve a problem.You are not an entrepreneur if you are receiving cash from a trust fund or investments you didn't make. Right now I can't come up with another idea of something that makes you money that doesn't solve a problem.
What's with the hostility?What? What kind of question is it? Is there some kind of certified agency that issues you a certificate when you become an entrepreneur?
Entrepreneur means, literally, to assume the risk for a business venture. Are you assuming said risks? Congratulation. Get back to work.
I'll try and be a bit more diplomatic, since I've found that joining forums like this can be a bit of baptism by fire if you ask certain things.What's with the hostility?
Yeah that is fair.I'll try and be a bit more diplomatic, since I've found that joining forums like this can be a bit of baptism by fire if you ask certain things.
I'm fairly certain that even if you could reach a consensus here as to what the definition of an Entrepreneur and Wantrapreneur is, I think the first thing people here will ask is "so what"? Putting out artificial targets for you to cross to make you feel good, or that you've "made it" really isn't what this website is about.
I actually answered you question above. Entrepreneur is not some wishy washy new age word. An entrepreneur is someone who assumes the risk of a business venture. Literally.Yeah that is fair.
The reason I ask is because I browse these forums I see the term 'wantrepreneur' used for various reasons, normally in a derogatory way. Naturally, that caused me to wonder at what point someone is no longer considered a wantrepreneur.
"I have this idea..."What do you mean by declarations that get you no where?
