The term “entrepreneur” was first defined by an Irish-French economist as “the person who pays a certain price for a product to resell it at an uncertain price”. In other words, they are people who take risks. That was 1723, and entrepreneurs are still alive and well and selling on eBay. While the risks can sometimes cause a sleepless night or two, the resulting benefits can far outweigh the challenges. I can sum up my love of being a business owner in one word: freedom! Freedom to work my own hours and to decide my own fate. I am humbly thankful to be living in a time and place when this is possible. I wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving!
