The rise of crowdfunding and start-up companies changed how people understand entrepreneurship. Nowadays, the word entrepreneur can refer to an individual starting a business. It’s easy to confuse businessman and an entrepreneur to have the same meaning even if they are different.
One factor that sets the two apart is the amount of risk each takes. Businessmen take calculated and managed risks. Entrepreneurs overlook these risks so they could do what they love. Entrepreneurs thrive on ingenuity and innovation. They are also always on the lookout for new ideas. They are more open to what’s different and crazy, which pays off in the end.
But what if you have a great idea that you want to turn into a project, but not enough confidence to try? Wouldn’t it be great to have someone show you the ropes before you take a dive?
