Anatomy of an Entrepreneur: They Aren't Who You Think They Are

When we talk about entrepreneurs, we usually picture the stereotype -- a recent college graduate (or even a college drop-out) living off ramen noodles, sleeping in the office and hitting up a venture capitalist for start-up funds. We imagine individuals who have rarely worked for other companies or other people -- it's not in their blood. At least, that was what I believed, and it made sense, considering the endless parade of 20-something company founders who struck it rich in Silicon Valley.
