Growing up in a group home, and with an undiagnosed learning disability to boot, the odds of success were not on my side.

If you want to be an entrepreneur, it's not a job, it's a lifestyle. It defines you.

But it's hugely rewarding as you're fulfilling something for yourself.

Have you ever noticed some people are able to stay organized while getting a massive quantity of work accomplished, while others appear to be busy but never actually produce results? Time management is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
An entrepreneur needs to know what they need, period. Then they need to find an investor who can build off whatever their weaknesses are - whether that's through money, strategic partnerships or knowledge.
Being an entrepreneur is tough. Really, really tough.
David S. Rose

It is a paradox of the acquisitive society in which we now live that although private morals are regulated by law, the entrepreneur is allowed considerable freedom to use - and abuse - the public in order to make money.

Entrepreneurial profit is the expression of the value of what the entrepreneur contributes to production.
