Have you ever wondered what entrepreneurship is or what it means to be an entrepreneur? What does Steve Jobs share in common with the young teacher from a remote Cretan village Aggelos Patsias? For Katerina Sarri entrepreneurship is not only about numbers. Αs a survey among people with mobility impairments has shown, being entrepreneurs allowed them a better quality of life, higher self-esteem and self-satisfaction, and earlier rehabilitation, compared to those working in terms of hetero-employment. By shifting our view of entrepreneurship from the economic domain to a philosophy of life, Sarri claims, we can infuse the values that are inherent to entrepreneurship to our everyday life, even in the way we raise our children.
