As the chair of The Cadman Capital Group, a group of over 30 cohesive and complimentary companies, I’ve had my fair share of entrepreneurial ventures, both successful and unsuccessful. Starting a business first and foremost requires passion, the ability to take risks, and an investment of your time and money.
I am continuously inspired by the hard work and tenacity of promising and ambitious entrepreneurs. This Entrepreneur of the Month series will feature up-and-coming self-starters of all kinds. Once a month I will put the spotlight on those determined, fearless and passionate entrepreneurs out there who I think will beat the odds and achieve success.
It can be difficult to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing market, a concept which I’ve recently explored in my series How to Thrive in Times of Change. This is precisely why I want to take the time to commend industry leaders. Those who’s businesses are navigating the choppy waters of the startup world. Entrepreneurship is not an easy journey, yet it has the potential to be an extremely rewarding one if you put in the effort and have a little bit of luck.
I’m always reading about what’s new and up-and-coming in the startup and business worlds. I want to share the stories of successful entrepreneurs, and perhaps create a learning experience for those with "just an idea" as well.
Are there any entrepreneurs who impress you? I look forward to your feedback in the comments below!
