© Richard Hanage – www.hanage.com The Entrepreneur Myth The Richard Branson image of entrepreneurs can be a big turn-off. Most students have entrepreneurial potential – and we can help them develop further. Types: Strong Es - unemployable? Moderate Es – flexible: can be intrapreneurs or independent. Emerging Es – breaking free of constraints or expectations Default Es - in a sector where jobs hard to find Life-style Es - choose the flexibility and autonomy of self-employment Eugene: building design, Malaysia
