What is Entrepreneurship?
The world needs creative thinkers and innovators. There might not be a need for a new mousetrap, but that doesn’t mean people can’t think about creating one. And when there is a need for a new technology or a new way to complete a task, you want people who can look at what we have and what we need and find a way to bridge the divide. These people are entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs find needs and create ways to fill them. They are big picture visionaries who can also see the details. They are critical thinkers, thought leaders, and subject matter experts. If you need someone to help you take an identified need and turn it into a solution, an entrepreneur is what you are seeking.
Although entrepreneurs are big picture people, once they see the picture, have created the solution, and guided the execution of the plan and the implementation of the rollout, they are often ready to move on to the next project. Most entrepreneurs aren’t interested in the daily operations of an organization past the implementation of their idea. This is neither a condemnation nor criticism, in fact it is their ability to disengage and disassociate from an organization that makes them so effective. They may not get personally involved with a company past overseeing the new product or idea rollout. They do their jobs, and they move on. If you can relate to getting excited about finding and launching new ideas but the idea of the daily business grind bores you, you just might be an entrepreneur in the making.
