Today the words, entrepreneur and enterprise, are used to describe someone who starts a business; Yes that is part of it. However, it’s more than that... Enterprise means the ability to make things happen; to cope with challenging situations and work through them to achieve success. It’s really a lifestyle that’s based on...
Attitude. Creativity. Dealing with People & Planning.
