An interest in entrepreneurship is on the rise, thanks to a chaotic job market and worldwide pandemic. In 2020 alone, there were 33.7 million small businesses in the United States (US). Entrepreneurs play a critical role in generating economic prosperity in the US; in fact, more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business.
What does it mean to be an entrepreneur?
By definition, an entrepreneur is “a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so.” (Merriam-Webster) Sound scary? Sure it means taking the risks, but it also means reaping the rewards. If you’re not sure what type of business you’d like to start, that’s okay. Becoming an entrepreneur may not require specific expertise upon startup, but it does require determination, passion, a willingness to take risks and learn along the way and, of course, the drive to succeed.
