START, RUN AND GROW YOUR OWN BUSINESS
CONFIDENCE. SELF STARTER. RISK TAKER.
Anyone can be an entrepreneur, but it requires a lot of hard work, dedication, planning and also a need for capital to start your business.
Entrepreneurship is focused on developing knowledge, skills, and understanding of how an innovative and creative idea, product, or process can be used to form a new and successful business or to help an existing firm to grow and expand. Some of the main reasons that a person desires to own a business include flexibility with work hours, calling the shots, creating your own environment, pursuing a passion, and/or creating something from scratch.
Earnings for entrepreneurs vary widely, depending on how well the business is doing. Entrepreneurs with a good small business may make between $30,000 – $75,000 a year; very successful owners can earn well over $100,000……ask Bill Gates.
