Over the years I have met and interviewed many self-proclaimed ‘entrepreneurial’ people. These people often talk about starting a company and doing it on their own, then settle down snugly to their predictable job running TPS reports at a regional outpost for a global conglomerate. Yes, truly entrepreneurial. But lots of these folks often talk about 'going to a start-up' or something along those lines. I generally chuckle and then try to give them a glimpse into what working at a start-up is really like. A start-up with lean resources, with high expectations and a need to prove it's business model.
