Throughout my time here at iMADdu and at Baylor, I find I’m constantly being asked and asking myself what kind of entrepreneur I am and what entrepreneurship is to me. To be honest, I’m still not sure exactly what kind of entrepreneur I am or want to be although I do know that I want to be one. After our class discussion on social entrepreneurship, I know that I am a social entrepreneur: I want my business ventures to be for the betterment or servitude of society. Aside from that, I don’t know what kind of entrepreneur I want to be, except that I want to make a difference in whatever I do. Perfect that I’m working for a company whose name is exactly what I want to do with my professional career! I think this ties in well with my definition of entrepreneurship.
I’ve found that entrepreneurship is fairly flexible and varies based on each individual. To me, entrepreneurship is transforming innovations into plausible business ventures. To put it simply, it is taking ideas and turning them into reality in a business sense. Without giving away any possible business ideas, I will say that I am hoping to turn some of my own innovative ideas into business ventures in the future. Until then, I will remain a learning entrepreneur whose main goal is to learn business acumen and grow so I can find the business niche that fits my specialty!
Question of the day: What kind of entrepreneur are you? And what is entrepreneurship to you?
