As Patel sees it, by having an entrepreneur mindset -- getting creative, seeing gaps, thinking outside of the bos -- is something that will take you head and shoulders over your immediate competition. Similarly, if you really want to turn your passion into a career, being willing to compromise and anticipate the needs of possible investora is one way to make a profit.
