Is there a difference between an entrepreneur and a business owner? Can you be one and not the other? Or be the other and not the one? Or be neither and still be self employed? Does it make any difference what you are, or probably more importantly, what you call yourself?

There’s an interesting discussion brewing about these questions in the StartupNation community.

I suppose it only matters if you feel that you act differently based on the moniker definition you would use to describe yourself. If it really doesn’t matter to you what you’re called, then it doesn’t matter what you’re called. Right?

Take a look at what other entrepreneurs … er, business owners … think about this.

Maybe you have something to add?
