One reason for these diverse reactions could be that – the term has blurred in its meaning and different people assume different meanings – even if the dictionary provides a pretty straightforward – “a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, esp. a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk”
Most cases the entrepreneur is made out to be some kind of demi god. Somewhile ago I posted on this topic
Today chrisbrogan has a post in which he expresses his discomfort with this term.He calls it the E word. I guess it is somewhat like the difference between an actor and a star. The term “entrepreneur” is Glamorous.
so whether you want to called and entrepreneur or you don’t mind settling for the lesser term a small businessman – so just need to get on with the job of making your firm success. Let the audience decide on which plaque to give you.
