Can you tell the difference between an Entrepreneur and a Businessman? Some may figure it out and some may think that they are just the same. But to explain it broader, there is a difference between a Businessman and an Entrepreneur.

According to an article in Quora, the difference between the two is their mindset. The way they see things can be a better standard to know if you are a Businessman, or an Entrepreneur.

A Businessman will look at the profitable sides of an idea. Its main focus is to know if that idea can give the company a lot of profit. They literally focus on making money and owning a business. They are also the one providing jobs and searching for the person who can do things in his ways or even in new ways.

An Entrepreneur is the one who does the job for the Businessman. They are the one delivering fresh ideas to aim for the better of the company. They aim for what's good for the business. They are the one providing satisfactory care for the customers.

In the industry, both are essential and necessary. A businessman will always need a good Entrepreneur and an Entrepreneur will always find a good Businessman to work with.

An article in Forbes completely states that an Entrepreneur can even provide fresh and innovative ideas in order to run and promote an old business and turn it into something even better. Even though an Entrepreneur can really start up their own business, some of them still choose to give other business their quality works and ideas.

Generally, both can be a really good occupation for any people. If a person aims for the good of the company itself, that person can be a Businessman. If a person aims to provide quality services for both the company and customers, then that person should consider being an Entrepreneur.
