The New Entrepreneur

(11/8/2007)
by Lea Strickland

Today's entrepreneur is yesterday's business executive, computer programmer, staff accountant, public relations specialist or any of the thousands of job titles and specialties you find inside of corporate America. The changes in the traditional business models, the trend to outsource and off-shore operations, has lead to the outplacement of many of the mainstream business processes.

As a result, more and more individuals are faced with taking a new approach to financial stability/security and to finding the best "career" path for them - entrepreneurship.

Annoyingly, Huh is also running around San Francisco this week doing all kinds of media interviews. But here are some things I pried out of him yesterday that you may not know.

A word first about Huh: People almost always open an interview by asking if he has cats or if he’s always been funny, which misses the point of what he loves about his job. Huh is a businessman. Unlike a lot of media entrepreneurs, he says his job has become more fun the larger the staff, the site, and the operational worries have grown.
