What a Successful Entrepreneur Believes

Economist Mark Casson notes: “The entrepreneur believes that he is right, while everyone else is wrong. Thus the essence of entrepreneurship is being different—being different because one has a different perception of the situation.

Frank Knight, the most recognized economist of the twentieth century, believed that in order to unlock profits, one must engage in ‘uncertain activity.’ That is, decisions must be made and actions must be taken not knowing what the expected returns will be. This is, in essence, the function of the entrepreneur: Business building under uncertainty. What distinguishes entrepreneurship is “judgmental decision making under conditions of uncertainty.”

Entrepreneurs produce profit through a committed belief in their own abilities; and, that they can be compensated with considerable rewards for having the willingness to take action, spend resources up front, and put their reputation on the line in the face of uncertainty, where judgment represents their only available guide.

If this is you, US Military Maintenance has created a business for US veterans to own and employ other US veterans. And we have created an investment opportunity for other veterans and civilians to become part owners in these business too. – We have tremendous testimonials from current USMM owners that this is an inexpensive, fast track to business ownership and making good income.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.
