A career is a line of work that a person takes for life. There are two ways a person can earn a living.

1. self-employment
2. wage employment

A person who becomes an entrepreneur goes through a career process. This process is as follows:

ENTER
When an entrepreneur is starting, they are just entering the market to do business.
For example, Sanjana is starting a small grocery store in a locality.

SURVIVE
There are many entrepreneurs in the market. The entrepreneur has to remain in a competitive
market.
For example, there are many other grocery stores in the area. Yet, Sanjana’s store survives
the competition and does well. She also expands the store to two more floors.

GROW
Once the business is stable, an entrepreneur thinks about expanding his or her business.
For example, after five years, Sanjana has opened a chain of four more grocery stores in the same city. In the next two years, she plans to expand to tow other cities.
