The definition of success in entrepreneurship

What is success? The success can be defined as this satisfying feeling of accomplishment which we feel when we achieve our goals. As the goals differ from person to person, so does the definition of success.

In business very often the success can be measured by numbers – revenues, profits, balance sheets – but there are many other ways that can make entrepreneurs feel successful without looking at spreadsheets – to seek innovation, rely on creativity, trust customer feedback, to achieve recognition from other entrepreneurs and business partners.
