Nevada Hispanic Business Group.
Entrepreneurship. What is it?
Some people think owning a business makes one an entrepreneur. Some think owning a successful business makes one an entrepreneur. So can you be an entrepreneur with no business? Sure! Can you be an employee with hopes of becoming an entrepreneur? Absolutely!
The entrepreneurial spirit goes beyond owning and managing a business, it includes leadership and forward thinking as well as having vision. Creating things differently is something that is required of an entrepreneur above anything else. Differences don’t have to be grand, but tweaking and making those tweaks make an indelible impression on those around them is an important aspect.
We have all heard of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, and his “regret minimization framework,” where he described his drive as a way to fend off any regrets he had about not participating in the internet business boom earlier. So he went from a simple online book retailer to one of the largest and most recognizable companies in the world. What separated Bezos from other book sellers? Entrepreneurial spirit and vision. He didn’t just want to sell books, he wanted to do more with innovation.
So an entrepreneur can have a business, but a business owner is not always an entrepreneur. Got it? Good! If you’re a little confused about the matter, no worries the Nevada Hispanic Business Group is an excellent resource for anyone who may or may not have a business and wants to learn more about entrepreneurship.
What about employees? Can they have the entrepreneurial spirt? Of course! Leadership is a great tool that anyone and everyone can hone and develop. It doesn’t matter what your title is, being innovative and creative at work goes beyond the 9 to 5. Who better to implement change at work than the people who are doing the work? Front-facing or line level employees have helped create change and optimization in plenty of companies and those companies have only been the better for it.
