A small business owner or entrepreneur is responsible for the growth, overall direction, and everyday operation of a business. Successful entrepreneurs use business knowledge and skills to create a business and effectively overcome challenges that face their establishment. Entrepreneurs assume the risk and accountability associated with establishing and growing a new business. Specific activities vary according to the business' size and industry and may include: reviewing sales reports, profit and loss statements, and other financial reports; hiring, training, and managing staff; understanding federal, state, and local laws; marketing; and directing activities for sales or production staff.
