In today’s day and age, the word entrepreneur carries significant prestige. It seems like everyone’s calling themselves an entrepreneur, but it hasn’t always been that way. Many aspiring business folks’ goal was to “get in” with a well-established company and work their way up the ladder just a generation ago. That idea has waned, and the dream of working up the corporate ladder has been replaced by the opportunity to accrue massive wealth as an entrepreneur.
In this week’s Eagle’s Nest webcast, we will dive into what it means to be an entrepreneur. Kevin Heupel, a professor of entrepreneurship at Metro State and CU-Boulder’s Leeds School of Business, is this week’s guest on the Eagle’s Nest webcast. Kevin, an entrepreneur himself, has a diverse background as a college professor, a corporate accountant, assistant attorney general, and public speaker, to name a few. He has written books, shared his knowledge on major media outlets, and started businesses of his own. We ask Mr. Heupel, “Is an entrepreneur born, or can entrepreneurialism be taught?”
We will explore areas like managing risk, what it takes to be an entrepreneur, and is being an entrepreneur all glitz and glam, among many other topics!
This episode is for anyone with a fascination with entrepreneurship, someone who might want to start a business, or aspiring professionals looking for more knowledge. Sign up for this live event Thursday, September 10th at 2 pm (MST).
