'Entrepreneur' seems too simple a word to describe Nick - he is the CEO of a nonprofit, the owner of a grant writing business and a clothing business, and is a board member of several nonprofits. These nonprofits include a batterers intervention program, as well as a nonprofit within San Quentin prison that works in violence prevention. His ability and motivation to spread himself out so thoroughly comes from the desire to help underserved communities.
Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled. An entrepreneur sees an opportunity and exercises initiative by organizing a venture to turn an idea into reality. An entrepreneur is often seen as a business leader and innovator of new ideas and business processes.
Entrepreneurship is defined by risks and rewards. Most people who become entrepreneurs are more comfortable with risks; prefer unstructured working and learning environments and collaborating with small team of people.
