Is a Corner Street Hawker an Entrepreneur?


Every chicken is a bird. But not every bird is a chicken.

Every entrepreneur is a hustler but sadly not every hustler is an entrepreneur.

Get it?

An entrepreneur is a person with a long-term vision. S/he’s after building sustainable relationships with customers and brand equity. The currency here is trust and value.

A hustler on the flip-side is quick to strike a deal (all sorts) where s/he stands to profit from a quick buck despite the cost to his image or credibility. His vision is short-sighted by necessity.

If you are a hustler. realize that you are easily replaceable and begin to think like an entrepreneur and build a system or brand that keeps you relevant for the long run.

So who are you really?
