I’ve recently been meeting with a circle of friends to learn from each other by sharing our standards of how best to sustain personal growth in some of these arenas. From experience, most managers would suggest these are topics essential to good management. I’ve also found that in application, effectiveness as compared to reality can be all across the board.

I think the best definition of an entrepreneur would be: An individual who’s predestined to reach out and take risk in order to capture their vision. Stay with me, I know I’m edging close to “The Wizard of Oz” and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” Whether you’re willing or not to admit it, we are truly hopeless romantics when it comes to business.

Though the phrase may be relatively new, the concept of “virtual reality” could just have easily applied to the entrepreneurs of past generations. As entrepreneurs mature in their profession, they fine-tune the ability to visualize, forecast and, with a high degree of certainty, to form conclusions based their mental insight. This allows them to transition their dreams from the virtual to the real world.
