Entrepreneurs are a different breed. They think differently from others. The definition of entrepreneur-one who takes risks to create a new enterprise-implies that they usually change what is happening around them. They envision new products not yet invented. They see companies not yet built, providing products that benefit mankind. Their inventions can earn profits for the entrepreneur while making travel easier, life safer, information more available, food preparation simpler, clothing better and less expensive-the list goes on and on.
