Entrepreneurship is when you identify a business opportunity and acquire and deploy the necessary resources to serve those needs, through a positive risk-reward tradeoff.
An Entrepreneur creates value for clients in his market, community and society by shifting resources from an area of lower productivity into a place of higher productivity and greater yields.
However, this is not only a career or an income strategy, but an unmistakable lifestyle attitude.
Are you up to the task? Are you passionate or even obsessed about providing extra value to society?
Paraphrasing JFK, “You choose to [be an entrepreneur] not because it is easy. You choose to because it is hard. Because that goal will serve to organise and measure the best of your energies and skills because that challenge is one that you are willing to accept, one that you are unwilling to postpone, and one you intend to win”.
If not you, Who? If not now, When?
[If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when?]
