Though both an exciting and important area of study, entrepreneurship research has been characterized by little consistency or established theory, and therefore impossible to be concretely defined. Some definitions to date have described entrepreneurship as the performance of an economic function, the result of characteristic personal attributes, and the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled. While the wording in these definitions may confuse some, the idea of entrepreneurship is very simple. In my opinion, entrepreneurship is about seeing opportunities and bringing about change.

Entrepreneurs are found to be more risk takers than the managers and salaried employees, such that, they are willing to put their homes on mortgage, jobless and can work for years without any earning (Burns, 2011; Masters & Meier, 1988). According to (Moore & Gergen, 1985), entrepreneurs always take calculate risk and always analyse the situation.

redundant regulations are the most common barriers to the free conduct of entrepreneurial activity” (Miller and Kim, 2011). Entrepreneurship creates new businesses and provides goods and services that may not yet be available. Regulations should not prevent individuals and businesses from entering into voluntary transactions. These regulations should enforce honesty and transparency in transactions, not hinder the free trade of goods or ideas.
Regulations that hinder the start-up of new businesses are the most damaging to economic freedom. Countries such as China, who scores low on the Index, have many barriers to entrepreneurship and instead prefer government-controlled businesses. Many
