A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we've been trained to think there's a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy.
