Entrepreneur

An entrepreneur is a person who creates a business where one didn't exist before, often employing innovation and more than an ordinary degree of risk. 

The terms entrepreneur and small-business owner should not be used interchangeably, although they often are. Entrepreneurs are not content in just owning a business. They are focused on building and growing an enterprise. And often, many entrepreneurs are ready to move on to the next thing once their venture has taken off.

These unique business owners drive forward with ideas and innovations that impact us all. They are an unstoppable force inspired to lead, determined to define success by their own terms, and as passionate about work as they are play.
