Who Is An Entrepreneur?


When you type ‘Entrepreneur’ into Google, here’s the definition you get…

“ ¹a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, ²taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so.”

This is where the problem starts. If I dissect this definition into two parts, I find it very misleading.

“ ¹A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses…”

I disagree with this entire statement because I don’t believe an Entrepreneur is defined by what they do. Instead, I believe an Entrepreneur is defined by who they are.

Entrepreneurship needs to be redefined to include the role an Entrepreneur plays, whether they run their own business or work for someone else. Entrepreneurship is so much more than simply running or launching a business.

Entrepreneurship Is A Mindset

Most would be surprised to hear that my opinion of Entrepreneurship actually has very little to do with running a business.

In today’s world, someone can apply Entrepreneurship to pretty much every part of their life…

In the past, the “typical” Entrepreneur ran or started their own company. However, times have quickly changed with the latest technology companies out of Silicon Valley like…

  • Google
  • Yahoo!
  • Amazon
  • Apple
  • Microsoft, Sony, 3M and other old-timers…

These companies have begun to function and operate completely differently. The term ‘employee’ is starting to disappear from these companies more and more every day.

Here’s how…

See, an Entrepreneur is someone who claims a problem and decides to own the process of finding a solution to that problem, and that solution creates tremendous value in the lives of others.

An Entrepreneur has ownership, a team, freedom, and the responsibility of allocating their own resources.

By this definition, a scientist at the National Institute of Health is an Entrepreneur. A stay-at-home mother who starts a daycare service is an Entrepreneur. The lead developer who invents a new feature for their company, is also an Entrepreneur.

If anything, Entrepreneurship has become more about leadership today than any other time in history, but leadership is not only needed for “running a business” – leadership is desperately needed in existing organizations too.

Today, even the biggest companies are seeing their greatest successes thanks to a new concept called… Check my next article.
