What is an entrepreneur? In the strictest sense of the word, an entrepreneur is someone who creates and runs a new business. These are the risk takers, the people who are willing to think outside of the proverbial box and push themselves to attain something new.
Yet a true entrepreneur is more than simply a business owner. Most entrepreneurs are born with an innate desire to do something great, to become something more or to lead others to greatness. Often, this entrepreneurial spirit is seen in the individual's early years, yet some great entrepreneurs did not find it in themselves until their later years.
Regardless, entrepreneurs are fascinating people to study. Whether they are born with talent or just the tenacity to keep going in spite of obstacles, the world's great entrepreneurs continue to inspire and enlighten the world, long after they have made a name for themselves.
While there are thousands of entrepreneurial minded individuals that have had an impact on modern society, a few have risen above to showcase true brilliance. In all industries, entrepreneurs have paved the way to bring new businesses, new products and new ideas to the world.
Some of these people were born with greatness and talent that showed itself at an early age. Others were born leaders, having the ability to inspire people with their charisma. Yet others were simply the go-getters, the people who inspired others by never giving up.
These 10 entrepreneurs each have a very different story. Some are rags-to-riches stories, while others are people of position who use that position to create something amazing. By listening to their stories, you will be inspired to be the best you can be.
