ARTRPRNR Guest Post: What Is An Entrepreneur?

It’s embarrassing. We, the people who claim to be experts on entrepreneurship, cannot agree on the definition of who really counts as an entrepreneur. Why does your definition of entrepreneur matter? Because it influences the decisions you make and affects the outcomes you achieve. If you adopt the wrong definition of anything you value highly you can go badly astray. Entrepreneurs who lack a clear definition of what they’re doing make inconsistent decisions, wasting time and money, and risk the needless destruction of their businesses.

CEO Series: Derek Lidow – Building on Bedrock

Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 6 - 7:30 p.m. We all dream to some extent about achieving some combination of the fortune, fame, and control over our lives we associate with successful entrepreneurs. Those are admirable aspirations in a society that counts on entrepreneurs to innovate, create new jobs, and to grow our economy. Our work-driven culture encourages us to take the entrepreneurial bait, but how can you know whether being an entrepreneur will end as a dream come true or a nightmare from which you cannot awake?
