Do you suffer from the entrepreneur’s gift? Are you the type of person that can take a mediocre opportunity and make it extraordinary? You make things happen and you have this creative mind. It's the entrepreneur's gift as well as a curse. Some people’s brains can be very and hyperactive that they try to pursue every opportunity that comes their way.
