Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Fact: Christopher Columbus was an entrepreneur

FYI => Follow up to -> “What are some less eye-rolling ways of calling yourself an entrepreneur?” on Quora.

=> This is mMy addition to the tread started by my previous answer on this question…

If they’ve worked for The Man and have always worked for The Man then by definition they’re going to lack the context required to understand “small business owner”. As for comprehending “entrepreneur”, well that might was well be French to most.

For the record, Christopher Columbus was an entrepreneur.

That is, he had an idea for a better way. He believed in it. So strongly in fact that he was willing to sacrifice and even die for it. He shopped some “VCs” and once financed, he hired his team and put his idea into play.

As for today, once they roll their eyes perhaps it’s best to follow with, “Christoper Columbus was an entrepreneur…”. Which should yield the classic WTF?! look. But at least then you’ll have their attention and ideally the upper hand (so to speak).

Obviously, plenty of people rolled their eyes at Chris as well. But since 1492 or so they’re still talking about the work of him and his crew.

Of course Columbus isn’t the only example.
