Exactly what is an entrepreneur?

Many people have some idea of what an entrepreneur is but they know only as much as they read!
If you look in the dictionary, you'll see that an entrepreneur is a person who organizes and directs a business undertaking, assuming the risk for the sake of the profit.
Although that definition is true, it is not complete. There is more to being an entrepreneur than organizing, directing and assuming risk. Anyone who has ever started a business and think of them as promoter, organizer or musical and other acts. Entrepreneur can extremely wealthy or wonder if they will have enough money to pay their bills. An entrepreneur basically is a person who is with extraordinary energy, persistence and determination, who believe in himself or herself enough to follow through a dream or idea.

What is the motivation?
There are many reasons for pursuing i this field. Some common motivators are:
A desire for power
A desire for wealth
A need to fulfill an inner drive
A desire for notoriety
A desire to make work fun
A desire to prove they can be successful on their own

The final question lies in the decision to go for it. I was also very doubtful to start something or not, but after the online blogging I realized that i have much support. Therefore I ask everyone to go for their dreams and pursue them to their best.
