What is Entrepreneurship?

When I looked at the web for the Definition of Entrepreneurship I came up with a lot of Definitions which are as follows, They are in a way understanding the term in a logical manner but in reality i gues a quotation by a student of Warren G. Tracy’s class, describes it the best-

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people wont so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”

The Above paragraph makes all the difference according to me, if you are an entrepreneur you know it in your heart that you will have to do the hard work but the best thing is that you will be ready for it.

As far as the definition from dictionaries are concerned following should help you out :)
