Why Is Being an Entrepreneur So Great? Not the Reasons You Think.

Why is being an entrepreneur so great? As it turns out, the answers might not be the first that come to mind.

In the most fundamental sense, entrepreneurship allows you bring something new into the world. I know that a particular product and service exist in the world because of the hard work I've invested. There is a great sense of pride in knowing that I've met somebody's needs and made their life easier. People who use my product derive a certain value from it, and this ultimately represents the broader utility of my entrepreneurial endeavors.

Team OnSIP Beats Fundraising Goal for Lupus Walk

After raising over $2,290 in donations, Team OnSIP rose bright and early on Saturday to participate in the 2014 Lupus Walk at MetLife Stadium. Sponsored by the Alliance for Lupus Research, the walk will fund medical research to find better treatments and ultimately prevent and cure systemic lupus.

The walk was a way for OnSIP to give to a cause that affects one of our own employees. Throughout the week, volunteers posted their donation goals on the team page, and other employees in the office pooled money together to fund each walker. OnSIP ultimately surpassed its team goal of $2,000 dollars by over $290 dollars.
