E is for Entrepreneur

(During the month of April we are participating in an A-Z challenge hosted by Arlee)

We'd love your support by following us on facebook. Just click here: 

"Entrepreneur", pronounced {ON-trup-un-err} is "a person who organizes and manages a commercial undertaking, especially one involving commercial risk."

In other words, an entrepreneur is a person who sets up their own business and is their own boss. They don't work for anyone else, and they don't rely on an employer to pay their salary. They can earn as much as they want in proportion to their creativity, hard work and selling prowess. But of course, if they are unable to sell to enough people, there is the risk of not earning enough money to survive.

At Horne Learning Services, we are entrepreneurs. We formed this company with my wife Fidelia as the Managing Director, and myself as the Chief English Trainer.

I've made it a point to create our very own English teaching materials. We haven't copied or borrowed anything from anywhere. Our word games, spelling tests, reading articles, essay questions etc have all been created by us.

Is there anybody reading this who is an entrepreneur? What's the best part of being an entrepreneur?

The word always causes me a little quibble, as it sounds like it requires a whole bunch of organization, but in reality, this is what we are as writers, isn't it?

Sounds like you're having a lot of fun doing what you love.

As a figure skating coach and author, I'm an entrepreneur of sorts.

As a writer I'm an entrepreneur. I'm in charge of if I work, when I work and then trying to sell my work to others.
