August 10 Week 2 Project
The entrepreneurs you learned and wrote about last week have all been successful in at least one of their endeavors, if not many. They have created and managed some of the most successful ventures in history. Most of them started with just an idea for a new product, a new process, or a new service. The difference between them and everyone else with an idea is innovation, the process of bringing that idea to life.
