Entrepreneurship may not be for everyone, but it's a career path that we admire. Having said that, we think we know what's on your mind now. Perhaps you're confused. Why are we talking about businesses? What's up? Don't we have anything better to write about today?
It's better to leave the product speak for itself...perhaps. But really, don't you think that business-mindedness is a great talent? Don't you adore entrepreneurs and their ideas for career success?
To say that it's risky to start a business out of scratch is a gross understatement. Unless you have connections, there is no assurance that your capital will be returned. And that's why we adore entrepreneurs: they have guts. In these writers' opinions, no one can compete with them in that department.
Career Advice has a couple of articles featuring business people for this reason. We want job hunters of Singapore jobs to take inspiration from them when it comes to guts. These articles are the best in the roster:

The Entrepreneur Mindset at http://sg.jobsdb.com/SG/EN/Resources/JobSeekerArticle/Career%20Guide?ID=391
Advice from Wendy Kwek, founder of Executive Directions Pte Ltd
An employee that works in the best interest of the company will be able to think of ways to help the company grow, and this is how they can behave like an entrepreneur. Basically, it's about making yourself more valuable to the company. An employee who performs well in a company is one who is willing to take on more than what they are supposed to do - to go the extra mile to help the company succeed.
