Before making our own image of an entrepreneur, it should wiser to to find the dictionnary definition of an entrepreneur.
In wikipedia, we can find this definition of an entrepreneur :

An entrepreneur is a person who has possession of a new enterprise, venture or idea and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome.

From this point of view, an entrepreneur is before all, a business man who creates his society. But to my mind, an entrepreneur is much more than this. An entrepreneur is a person who has strong values and a project, and make everything he can to make this project real. Thus, even employees or volunteers could be entrepreneurs even within they own society or association. By leading an inside project, they put forward their values and ideas. Their commitment and will make them entrepreneurs. For instance, making that blog makes me an entrepreneur in a way as I put my energy and will into a project of  sharing my ideas.

What do you think about this ? Are you conviced that an entrepreneur is only a business man or do you thing that everyone can be entrepreneur also ?
