Are You a Business Owner or an Entrepreneur?
Just because you own your own business (or aspire to) does not mean that you are an entrepreneur. This notion may take readers aback, however as we start to peel back the layers, it makes sense. Academically, Merriam-Webster defines owner through the lens of possession, while defining entrepreneur through the lens of the activities involved in owning, managing and running a business.
