During lunch, with the girlfriends, we had this conversation on the term of entrepreneur. We were arguing on what kind of person/people/group deserve to be known as an entrepreneur.
We felt that anyone who started their business empire successfully from scratch (refer to planning, innovation and self-funded capital or bank loan) deserved to be known as an entrepreneur. As compare to the celebrities who own their own brands (i.e: clothing line, perfumes, cosmetic, etc), they don’t seem to be fit to be known as entrepreneur. This is due to their popularity whereby it is either they are being approached by collaborating with an organisation to market a product or vice versa and they have no capital issues.
But then again, it was a spontenous open ended conversation.
The word entrepreneur probably gives different interpretation to respective individual. So, what’s your definition of entrepreneur?
