Thirty ways, entrepreneurs are similar to rock stars
Rock stars are known for their unmindful ways. They are reckless, full of ego and troublesome. On the other hand rockstars are brands in themselves, highly talented, hardworking professionals too.They rake in tonnes of money by creating songs and plays that others cannot even imagine. They are very creative and captivate crowds. They are reckless with money and often are penniless in the end. This is not to praise or demean them but to see them as they are. They are the risk takers, crowd pullers and they have a huge fan following.
