The Entrepreneur Experience
Good Choices and Common Mistakes



The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines an Entrepreneur as, "a person who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise." Like so many before and many yet to come, the entrepreneurial dream bit me at a very early age. I believe everyone has the entrepreneur gene. For some it is more dominant than for others. Some have it nourished by family and friends, others have it squelched by parents and teachers. Entrepreneurs come from all walks of life. It doesn't seem to matter where you were born or raised, how you were educated, or if you came from a rich or poor family. If you have a dominant entrepreneur gene, it will drive you to risk what you have on what you can create.

The education system is designed to make square pegs out of everyone and fit them into the square holes of society. A basic education is a valuable asset. Knowing how to read, write and do arithmetic is not essential, but sure helps. The school system works for professions that require precision learning focused on specific tasks, such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, and architects, but for the majority, we stumble around until we find our niche. A few of us end up as round pegs and have to make our own holes in society. We are the entrepreneurs, the inventors, and the risk takers.

It is often difficult to get real-world assessments of your venture or your abilities.

One thing we have learned from years of struggle, failure, and success is that, even though technologies have changed, the nuts and bolts of taking an idea from concept to a viable business have remained the same.
