A successful Entrepreneur

As Vinod Khosla says "An entrepreneur is someone who dares to dream the dreams and is foolish enough to try to make those dreams come true.", Entrepreneurship is something really challenging and exciting, trying out new things with new ideas, its just like exploring LIFE to the maximum extent. As we can see Internet as the fast growing media to communicate, a lot of new areas have opened for business and innovation, entrepreneurs who exclusively focus towards WEB are known as 'netrepreneurs', So the next best revolution maybe is on WEB.
I just saw this presentation and would like to share with you , it talks about the six points to be a successful Entrepreneur.
