As an entrepreneur you'll display key characteristics that will help you run your business.
Ideally, your professional make up means you'll be able to be your organisation's;
- ENTREPRENEUR: the ability to promote your product
- SALESMAN: the ability to drive sales
- MONEY MAN: to grasp the finance
- E MARKETER: understanding aspects of e-commerce
