It is my dream to be an entrepreneur and independent in the future. Is anyone here already and entrepreneur? How did you get there? How long did it take you? Was it hard? If you are not an entrepreneur, tell me what you think it means to be one and if you would want to be one or not. Thanks everyone and have a great day!

An entrepreneur is a highly motivated,self-driven and innovative person who is always prepared to take calculated risk to fulfill his or her dream. He looks at everything differently and try to bring new ideas and plans. An entrepreneur is an creative person who explores opportunity in every situation and makes all efforts to translate his ideas into reality. An entrepreneur loves to live and work independently,no matter how much efforts,energy and time he or she needs to put. Thanks.

An entrepreneur is someone who has an idea and is determined to go ahead with it. They are willing to work hard, and if an idea is not working according to plan they are determine to keep trying. They don't give up. They are willing to help others succeed.

I also dream of becoming one. My sister handles a rosary collection business. She used to makes accessories before and now, she has focused on rosaries. It has been so hard for her. People say that entrepreneurs enter difficulties in the first 5 years of their business which makes me wonder.. how many years has my sister been working alone? Would you loose your momentum if i tell you that after 5 years, she still has not gotten her return investments... I felt that her rosaries are too expensive... well.. it was really worth it because it was well-crafted; unfortunately.. she aint getting much sales. Yes.. it was definitely hard. Well puccagirl.. if you really do like that business and if you feel good doing it, why not try it? Tell me about it...
