“People don’t know what they don’t know. Right now entrepreneur is an “in” word and carries with it a connotation of excitement, and justly so. The very nature of entrepreneur as portrayed by the media is someone who throws caution to the wind and creates something like a Facebook, a Google or a Microsoft. What isn’t sexy about that? However, those entrepreneurs tried by fire know that the harder they worked, the luckier they got.”
