Inside Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship involves the founding and operating of a business. In order to establish a business, one must first have a product or service to sell that satisfies a customer's needs. One must then either invest an often significant amount of seed money to turn such an idea into a reality or convince others to invest. If the product is successful, the business's founder may make a great deal of money, expand the business and perhaps venture into other markets. If the product isn't successful, however, the initial startup capital may be lost. Such a debt can be difficult to overcome, and it may affect a person's career for some time.
