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!
