3. A misconception we have is that only a person having a big business is an entrepreneur. No business is big or small. If a person is running a business to fulfil a customer’s need, they are an entrepreneur. Most businesses start small. It becomes big with hard work and creativity.

4. Our misconception is that entrepreneurs are born, not made. Only some people have the talent for doing business. An entrepreneur is a person who does whatever it takes to make the business successful.
