What is an entrepreneur?
An entrepreneur is someone that will add value to the word and get paid for doing so. This could be in the form of businesses that sell a product or service. Of course, starting a business contains risks but are far more likely to pay alot more than a traditional job.

Pele has helped us to put together a list of 3 tips to help aspiring entrepreneurs to build their first business.
