Arianne Polonsky Professor Mary Gale Entrepreneurship and opportunity September 16, 2014 The Monk and the Riddle Ever since I was a child I wanted to follow my parent’s steps and become an entrepreneur. I have always thought that the most important rule when thinking about a new business project was to think financially what would benefit me rather than to think personally. After reading The Monk & the Riddle I agree with Komisar that an entrepreneur is most likely to be successful when following his/her passion. The most surprising thing to me about entrepreneurship in this book is the assertion by Randy that the business is like creative work like printing, and not necessarily a financial institution.

The reason for this is that European (and American) slave traders did not simply go out into the African countryside and kidnap their own slaves. Instead, they bought slaves from the coastal kingdoms. Those kingdoms generally got slaves to sell through war and through raiding against inland tribes. Because the slave traders wanted more slaves, the coastal kingdoms were encouraged to wage more wars and conduct more raids against their neighbours. In addition, those kingdoms were provided with things like guns in exchange for slaves.

Some slaveholders hired personal managers for their households while others just relied on mistresses to oversee and handle household affairs. Slaveholder’s were infatuated with becoming the best cotton manufacturer as well as becoming skilled producers of sugar and rice.

It is hard to think of an inventor that has never once messed up while trying to create a product. In fact, it’s nearly impossible. Everybody makes mistakes, and even the smartest and wisest scientists make mistakes. “We learn wisdom and failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery,” said Samuel Smiles, a 19th century scottish author.
“He who has relied least on fortune is established the strongest,” said Niccolo Machiavelli in his book The Prince. This quote is amazing, and it shows no more than the truth. Most people believe that fortune and wealth equal power. Some people even believe that they cannot have power without being rich. They are all wrong.
Imagine the start of our nation, with the the greats, our first presients. You know, like the ones on our money that we see almost every day. I'm talking about Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. They all did amazing things to help birth as well as parent this amazing country, but who was the best?

All these factor are the key component that lead to the triumph and victory toward tyrannies. Actually the fact is we live in a jungle where the most powerful is the only living being. However still, there are people that can’t tolerate the injustice. It is very shameful how the end of these leaders are tragically: indeed, the real enemy of the humanity are taking away every threat on their power, in the same way, in the same savagery. On the other side, the story also is about the great leaders of the life, although these leaders share ideal innate traits in their personality but the fact that they lived the oppression and decide to face it is what makes them that great leader who left an eternal legacy and great merit on the humanity.
All doers make mistakes because doers weren’t doers in the beginning, they made mistakes then learned from them. That made them better at those things they previously made mistakes on. They became doers through failure. While studying key individuals in history they all made mistakes, whether it was losing a war or cutting down your father’s cherry tree. King George III made many mistakes and was a doer, he might not have been doing good things but he was still a doer.
