The Entrepreneur is our visionary, the creator in each of us. We're born with that quality and it defines our lives as we respond to what we see, hear, feel, and experience. It is developed, nurtured, and given space to flourish or is squelched, thwarted, without air or stimulation, and dies.  ~ Michael Gerber

The following Entrepreneurs did not squelch nor did they thwart their ideas.  They developed and nurtured their ideas to Success!  Read their stories and get inspired:
