    What does it mean to be an Entrepreneur?

    Entrepreneurship is not about being rich or being able to buy costly iPhones or eating out at fancy restaurants. Showing off your expensive clothes and cars or having each of your coffee at Starbucks doesn’t make you an entrepreneur.

    No.

    Entrepreneurship is about investing responsibly and growing your wealth in all genuine ways. You can become an entrepreneur not just by starting your company, but also by investing your money in a responsible way and guiding others (teams) to do the same. Entrepreneurs are more like teachers, who by making responsible and calculated decisions motivate their peers to follow their paths.

    What a load of guff.

    Sorry but that’s just not true. An entrepreneur can be whatever you want it to be

    That looks like definition of investor. Entrepreneurs are associated with business builders not stock buyers. Warren buffet is not an entrepreneur, he is an investor. What you posted falls into his camp or say VC people type camp.

    May be, it is your feeling but I have seen so many people who is multi bilinear and they donate more for poor people and help them in critical situation.
    And this is not wrong if people earn money by doing hard work and spend on them self. Everybody wants to fulfill their dream and if people have a dream to live a luxurious life after earning money so what is wrong?

    I think OP is mistaking social entrepreneurship with in general entrepreneur. These days social justice is on the rise.

    To me an entrepreneur is someone who is a Rainmaker...Someone who develops the ability to make rain... That one who can find new business, create new business opportunity and optimize growth where others fail that do not have the skill. It is a skill to be developed. Taking some little thing where others see nothing and creating something. For me it is the one essential skill to develop when you start out, to start with seemingly nothing, no debt, and develop the proceeds of your effort into something big and worthy of effort!

    An entrepreneur is ready to take calculated risks, buisness minded, disciplined and determine!
