Have an entrepreneur come talk to your group about everything but business and watch the reactions.
The act of entrepreneurism may be business, but “thinking like an entrepreneur” can be applied to every facet of your life.
A business owner would be proud to claim 30 years of experience, while the entrepreneur may be embarrassed to do the same thing for 30 years.
While the business owner is focused on clients and profits, the entrepreneur is consumed with creating solutions, reinventing the wheel, working under pressure, and making things better.
Steve Jobs didn’t invent portable music. He made it better. He was an entrepreneur.
The entrepreneur is a better problem solver, they set goals, they scratch the surface before drawing conclusions. The entrepreneur can find a solution when everyone else couldn’t. They create and recreate, and they make things better, even if everyone is satisfied with what they already have.
The entrepreneur faces their fears, they deal with life’s unexpected surprises, and they find a way where others gave up.
The world could use a few more.
