Entrepreneur Exercise 3 Hours

So you think you have what it takes to run a successful business. You have a can’t-miss product or service. You are a marketing guru — you can sell water to a whale. You know how to manage people. And you can count money with the best of them.

The Entrepreneurial Marketplace is a great place to find out if you are all that or all talk. But don’t worry: It’s a fun exercise where you will learn a lot about yourself and the trials and triumphs of owning/running a business.
