The Spirit of Entrepreneurship

During my 21 years of professional career, I have interacted with countless entrepreneurs, in my opinion, Quest is the key word that describes an entrepreneur. Whereas, challenging their ability to keep excelling is the key skill. Highly successful entrepreneurs I met were those who regularly re-evaluated their performance and whenever required changed their strategies to achieve their ultimate vision.

In their book, The Spirit of Entrepreneurship, Nandram, Sharda S., Samsom, Karel J. say that;
"the human side of entrepreneurship venturing, in our opinion an underexposed subject both in terms of serious research as well as descriptive writing”

They quoted Jerry Engels and David Charron of UC Berkeley who said that
“entrepreneurship is a team sport”

Isn’t that true? Yes I guess would be the answer. An entrepreneur achieves his vision through a game plan, and the major successes factor in the winning a game depends on the effectiveness and co-ordination of team players!
