As defined by Webster's Dictionary, an Entrepreneur is a person “who organizes a business venture and assumes the risk for it.”
The successful Entrepreneur takes on the challenges and risks of owning and operating their own business.
Taking one’s passion and talents forward to create a viable, profitable business entity is a concept the Entrepreneur lives by. Breathing life into a new and unknown venture is both exciting and rewarding.
