“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t”

"Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t” is a business saying that has been printed on many posters. The saying has been cited in print since at least August 2007 and is of unknown authorship.

A September 2007 post credited the saying to an anonymous “student in Warren G. Tracy’s class.”
