Being an entrepreneur typically means making as much money as possible as a result of a business idea. However you may want to remember that the level of success you experience would depend on how you go about measuring success in your life. Financial matters will not always determine how you feel about your venture. Instead someone that becomes a successful entrepreneur may think of themselves as successful because they were able to create a new product that many people love. Others would find joy in being able to leave their old source of income behind while spending more time with their family.
