And I thought it was just me and my personal insecurities. But apparently not.
I tweeted something that hit a nerve for some and resonated with others.
I’d just seen Richard Branson start a sentence with “As an entrepreneur…” and I said:
At least now I know it’s not just me that tut’s when I see the word “entrepreneur” in someones self-written biography.
As for someone who actually says “I’m an entrepreneur” in response to the question “What do you do?” – one word immediately materialises in my head. It begins with W and ends with anker.
“Entrepreneur” is a word others use to describe you.
It’s not a word you should use to describe yourself.
Unless you’re Richard Branson, perhaps.
Still, it could be worse, they could be referring to themselves as Thought Leaders or a Gurus – or both!
