Unit 1 discussion – introduction and entrepreneurs
Answer one of the following questions:
Entrepreneurs are not cut from the same mold, and no one set of characteristics can predict entrepreneurial tendencies or success.
- What is your perception of entrepreneurs in your community or in our society?
- Discuss the traits of an entrepreneur.
- Who are the stakeholders that entrepreneurs have to consider when they decide to start a business and how are they important to the success of that business?

- Assume responsibility for my own actions
- Demonstrate professional and appropriate communication skills
- Present an appropriate professional appearance for the environment
- Handle sensitive or difficult issues with grace and confidence
Herzing University and Herzing College believe in the human potential and personal aspirations of each student. Based
on feedback from a cross‐section of our community partners (employers, clinical sites, workforce centers), Herzing has
developed a framework of behaviors and attributes, that supports a successful and meaningful career. This framework
is called the “P.R.I.C.E. of Success.” In order to help each student develop and expand upon these qualities, Herzing has
created a culture where students are expected to exhibit these behaviors and attributes in all interactions, in and
outside the classroom. Herzing believes students who apply themselves and embody the P.R.I.C.E. characteristics will be
more likely to reach their full human potential.
