  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Let's begin with a definition of "entrepreneur" which is a French word from "entre" = between, among; in or into and "preneur" = a taker or a buyer.

    Main Entry: en·tre·pre·neur
    Pronunciation: "änn-tr&-p(r)&-'n&r, -'n(y)ur
    Function: noun
    Etymology: French, from Old French, from entreprendre to undertake —more at ENTERPRISE
    Date: 1852
    : one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise

    You might say "a self-starter" which a lazy, demotivated person would definitely not be!
