Good evening our dear readers and welcome to the maiden edition of ENTREPRENEURSHIP TODAY. My name is Aaron, am your anchor on this informative and educative program. Stay glued to your screen as I take you into the world of entrepreneurship every week.
On today’s edition, we would be discussing on the topic “Who is an Entrepreneur?”
Just last week, I had a chat with a good friend, we spoke on how we spend from the very first minute we are awake till when we retire back to bed at night. We concluded it was bad to go to bed every night without earning something, then he popped the question ”Na to be entrepreneur sure pass abi?” I pondered on the question which lead to two other questions:
1. Who is an entrepreneur?
2. Can everyone be an entrepreneur?
Join me as we unravel the answers together.
We have this mindset that an entrepreneur is only someone who starts or owns a business, an enterprise or an establishment. While this is true, it is not the whole because you can be an entrepreneur even without owning a business just yet. Then who is truly an entrepreneur?
An entrepreneur is someone who sees opportunities where others see obstacles, he sees solutions where others see problems, a way where others sees a wall and a paradise where others see a desert.
An entrepreneur is a creator, a challenger, an innovator, a risk taker and a leader. He is in charge of situations and someone to look to for leadership. An entrepreneur is someone who decides to make his/her idea a reality either to create economic or social values.
Entrepreneurs are ORDINARY people who make and find opportunities everywhere and turning it to their advantage.
Everyone can be an entrepreneur, the truth is everyone is born an entrepreneur its just unfortunate many die without knowing nor experiencing it. The defining factor depends on how we put our minds to use.
Entrepreneurs are not super humans, they are not the few privileged neither are they more endowed than YOU. They are just the ones who choose to put their minds to effective use, take the risk and are crazy enough to make their idea a reality irrespective of whether it yield profit or not but ultimately and eventually their ideas yield economic and social values.
So yes anyone can be an entrepreneur, we are all entrepreneurs, YOU are an entrepreneur we only need to believe in ourselves and make our ideas a reality.
Thank you for joining us, we hope TREASURE NETWORK has added value to you today. Join us same time next week for another fresh and informative episode of entrepreneurship today.
