Who Are Entrepreneurs?
Entrepreneurs have been called leaders, quirky, eccentric, idealists, innovators, problem-solvers, and egomaniacs to name a few. The complimentary name-calling is usually offered by entrepreneurial peers, while the others come from people who are generally followers, not leaders.
The entrepreneurial bunch are often referred to as what started our economy, what made it grow, and what made it flourish.
