Thoughts on Entrepreneurship:

“‘Due to major changes in today’s work force, many employees of large corporations are finding themselves unemployed. They are becoming our entrepreneurs of today. Entrepreneurship is on the rise. We should provide support to this movement with all of our resources. The creative thinkers of today will have to differentiate his or her product or service from others to succeed. The entrepreneurial spirit will survive if we pass on the attributes and advantages of being a true entrepreneur.”
