Are You An Entrepreneur?

Are You An Entrepreneur? | Let's Get Down To Business | Scoop.it

Entrepreneurs are people who dream big, achieve much and make the nation a better place. Having lived in Silicon Valley a few years ago, I recall feeling the vibe of success as I drove past huge companies like Apple, Google and Cisco that were built by entrepreneurs.

 

A report by MBO Partners, predicts that as much as 50 per cent of the US workforce will be entrepreneurs, freelancers or consultants in six years' time making them effectively self-employed. Similar growth is being experienced in Australia according to Adecco's Temporary Labour report.

 

What does your future hold? Will you be the next millionaire or billionaire entrepreneur? How do you know if you have an entrepreneurial spirit?

It is true

Qiufang Chen's curator insight, September 18, 2014 6:45 AM

this article is talking about how to be entrepreneurs, especially in the Internet world. Lots people start with their creatives ideas, such as the success of viber, Facebook, twitter and so on. The report made by  MBO Partner shows that 50% of US workers will be entrepreneurs to create better place in the nation. 

People may look at the success of entrepreneur ignored the failure of it. Entrepreneurs may not mix with office politics, while willing to receive challenges. They also may face the risks of developing management and leadership skills.

By facing the challenges, entrepreneurs are willing to push the boundaries, breaking the certain rules.
