I'm starting a series on my blog called the Mix-tion-ary. Basically, I mix words together to create new meanings. It's like remixing a song to create a new song. As a writer, I sometimes feel confined by the English language, so in order to fully express myself to myself and the others, I will create new words to help me define and articulate how I feel.

#1: Entrepre-new-real

A characteristic in everyone but only accessible to one who is aware of the creative force within them and is willing to undertake the birth of a new reality through any form of creation (ie art, agriculture, business, etc).

The word "entrepreneur" is a loanword from French. In French the verb "entreprendre" means "to undertake", with "entre" coming from the Latin word meaning "between", and "prendre" meaning "to take".

Today, the term social entrepreneur is very popular because they have dis-covered new models of business that unify social mission with financial ambition. One's social mission seeks to create value first. One's financial ambition seeks to capture as much of the value created as possible.

Google is perhaps the best model of social entrepreneurship to date with the social mission of organizing the world's information and making it universally accessible and useful and the financial ambition actualized through their highly profitable Google Adwords profit model.

To change is to create new avenues to a destine-nation. The alternative is insanity, which can be defined as doing the same thing over and over and expected a different results. Whether as entrepre-new-ers or intrapre-new-ers, lasting change will only come through every human being tapping into the entrepre-new-real spirit within them.

  1. Julien, I believe that entrepreneu"realism" can also be applied to social responsibility . . .
    Rather than rely upon George or GM (General Motors) to feed my children's minds when a crumb of the loaf won't do, I work as a social community entepreneur to fund and support "alternative" youth education as the current curriculum has rendered our young generation in a precarious condition . . .

    I also wanted to share with your readers and you that UniTee Design is currently organizing The 2008 Detroit Million Father March, an important campaign to get fathers to take their children to the first day of school . . .

    While symbolic in gesture, I hope to use this platform to increase community / parent / student involvement throughout the school year . . .

    One in UniTee and all the blessed . . .
