Ruby member Lisa Ormenyessy sums up what she sees as the difference between entrepreneurs and those who just "wannabe".
Wannabes obsess over Ideas.

Wannabes focus on Leads.

Wannabes focus on Positive Thinking.
Entrepreneurs Plan for Multiple contingencies – Positive thinking is important, but you are not a Jedi yet, you cannot conjure money up out of thin air. Positive Thinking only gets you so far; you must have Positive Thinking combined with specific targeted action to get massive results
