An entrepreneur is some one who owns and operates a successful business. Anyone can be a businessman and simply own a business. An entrepreneur takes risks and therefore they see great returns. They are usually seen as visionary and innovative. They are willing to put in longs hours and they do. They work hard and make many sacrifices for their company. Sometimes people don’t see the sacrifices. It is like being a parent and their business is their baby. There are many sleepless nights and times that the parent goes without just to give to their child.This is true of a successful business (especially in their early stages) and a true entrepreneur is willing to do anything they have to do to get their business healthy.
A successful businessperson always puts the customer first. They make sure to put forth a positive image. You don’t complain to your customers – then they would not come back. You want repeat business so you make sure to leave the customer wanting more or leaving with a positive response feeling.
