About the job:

What you do

As an Entrepreneur, you find a bright business idea and then find ways in which you can launch it. This includes finding the money required to start the business and hire other people. You also find ways in which you can tell other people about your business or products.

The tough stuff

As an Entrepreneur, you will have to:

  • Remain competitive and motivated through difficult times
  • Adapt to the lifestyle of not always having a regular salary
  • Adapt to the loneliness of being self-employed
  • Spend some of your time doing paperwork & other administrative tasks - until you can hire people to help


The cool stuff

As an Entrepreneur, you will get to:

  • Be your own boss and possibly become very successful
  • Live with excitement as each day is filled with new challenges
  • Work when you want, from where you want
Typical work hours
  • 50-80 hours per week
  • 20-30% nights and weekends

As an Entrepreneur, you are your own boss, so you define your own work hours. But many entrepreneurs work very hard. At the start, they work day and night to launch their business and establish it. Once the business is established, they are able to hire other team members and have more relaxed work hours.
