To be honest, there are far too many different meanings for the term “entrepreneurship.” Entrepreneurship, in Steve Jobs’ opinion, is all about doing insane things to get extraordinary results.

Entrepreneurship is primarily about having an idea, working on it till it becomes a reality, facing obstacles on a daily basis, competing with others in your sector, and finally expanding your company’s revenues.
