WallaceBurch: How to employ an entrepreneur | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Entrepreneurs focus on goals, achieve success and create wealth.  Boy, wouldn’t you want some of them working for you?

 

The problem is that the best entrepreneurs are unemployable.  They do things their way, they don’t care for the niceties of policy and procedure – especially when defined by someone else, they won’t do what they’re told, and they don’t care too much if they upset a few people along the way.  In summary, they’re unmanageable.

 So is it the right choice for you? To a large extent this depends on what sort of person you are and what you expect and want to achieve in life.
