Every Business Person Should Think Like an Entrepreneur

It is National Entrepreneurship Week in the U.S. and who better to talk about that than the Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine Jason Feifer. Here, in this reprised conversation, Jason centers on his idea that every business person, to grow and succeed, should be thinking like an entrepreneur. Makes sense to me.  Enjoy this fast paced and often light hearted but in the end....serious conversation.
