Are you an Employee or Entrepreneur?

In this challenging economy, the terms ‘downsizing’ and ‘outsourcing’ have become a regular part of the workplace vocabulary, and many employees are obliged to look for entrepreneurial ventures to replace their job income.

It can be debated whether entrepreneurs are born with a natural business instinct, or if persons can be taught to become entrepreneurial.
