    Juvy Calayo United States of America Knowing the meaning of entrepreneurship will help you become successful because you will realize that you are the only one that can build your business to be successful. This means that you will have to do the work that is needed and put in the time required. Creating a business is not an easy task..you must work hard to attain this..you must have to possess the qualities of an entrepreneur to make you a successful in this field.

    Victoria Yeboah United States of America An Entrepreneurship is having a vision of a particular business that you have a passion for. You must have strategically plans and goals for how you would like your business to be a successful one. An Entrepreneur must have a focus in what he or she does best in order to better your business by satisfying your customers. An entrepreneur must work hard on solving problems and provide service not for your personal gain. An entrepreneur must be very committed to his or her work all the time. The reality is you want have a successful business so you always strive to be the best in what you do. 2015-03-20 20:03:57
