“Developing a business from scratch”
What is an entrepreneur?
An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, esp. a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk, and an employer of productive labor or contractor.
When starting a business a new entrepreneur should learn how to spell the word. My husband Gerry and I started a ten-week seminar on the Entrepreneur Center and our first question was “How do you spell entrepreneur?” To our amazement a quiet chuckle went around the room because most said they didn’t know.
