The freelancer and the entrepreneur

This issue is borne from semantics. Freelancers are by nature entrepreneurial and fall under the dictionary definition of “entrepreneur” (a person who sets up a business or businesses taking on financial risks in the hope of profit). So telling a freelancer “you’re not an entrepreneur” is us vs. them, and frankly, condescending. Freelancers are just a different type of entrepreneur; ones who can’t scale. The recommendations are spot on (Freelancers, freelance; entrepreneurs, hire) but the semantics remain problematic.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
