a person who maintains their financial stability through direct payment for services or services rendered by a company they create. Often confused with the term hustler (formal use: consultant) many entrepreneurs start out as hustlers but eventually transcend this term by expanding their operations into entities which may exist without their direct involvement until a point in time when they decide to sell their operation to either start a new operation, start calling themselves a venture capitalist or retire to a life of luxury, speaking engagements and book deals.
