Am I An Entrepreneur?


Are you an entrepreneur and how is that different from being a small business owner? Or is it? Jason Blumer and Greg Kyte discuss a couple of articles that ask this question. They decide that it may be hard to find a definition that will make everyone happy, but there is value in the discussion. Then Guy Pearson of Practice Ignition joins the call, and no matter your definition, you have to agree that Guy is an entrepreneur once you hear his story.

Thank you to our sponsors Avalara and ZohoBooks. Greg Kyte says Avalara is the Prozac of sales tax compliance. Listen to the show to find out why!
