Spoke at an event today in Preston – a brilliant bunch of people so representative of the entrepreneurial community that keeps this economy alive and kicking. I was particularly impressed with one guy who said “I do what I do because I love it – it’s not about the money, the latter will follow if I succeed”. This spirit is so endearing and typical of the group of people who represent 50% of both jobs and economic output. This is what the next generation of entrepreneurs need to think about..follow your passion and the things that give you satisfaction personally and professionally.
Dragons Den is back on and no doubt The Apprentice will follow – both TV programmes do nothing for the next generation of entrepreneurs – both breed the wrong behaviours!
