The Purpose and Job of an Entrepreneur: To Build an Asset of Value As entrepreneurs we are so consumed in our every day business life that often we forget why we even started our businesses! Why do we do what we do and where is it going; how do we silence the noise of the daily activities that consume our passion and erode our meaning to find a new way of doing things, a way that reignites our inspiration and further, ensures that we are journeying towards a rewarding destination? The Purpose and Job of an Entrepreneur is a talk presented by Pavlo Phitidis where key behaviours have been distilled from his having built and sold 12 businesses and through Aurik Business Incubator, where he has worked with over 500 entrepreneurs on their journey to success.
