Is an artist an entrepreneur? World-renowned artist Ai Weiwei employed 1,600 people of the Chinese city of Jingdezhen to create millions of hand-painted porcelain sunflower seeds for an installation at Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.
Being an entrepreneur is an attitude, a discipline, and the courage of self-definition. It means that you no longer will hold fast to the attachment to the financial system and allow for something greater than yourself to be your system. Entrepreneurship can be something life-affirming and soul-sustaining.
