An enterprise is an activity or a project that produces services or product for others in the community.
Entrepreneurs are people who organise and manage an entreprise by opening up new employment possibilities.
Having enterprising or entrepreneurial attributes is also highly valued in some workplaces and industry sectors since it shows your ability to manage a whole aspect of a business,
for example an ability to run a small shop effectively will be a valuable attribute to be applied in bigger international scale enterprises.
There are several type of enterprises such as business enterprises (or often referred as small businesses), visible small business
(e.g. sport stores, computer games hire and sales, computer services, restaurants, bakeries, printers,hairdressing,salons, crash repairs, shops) ; franchises ; less visible small busineses
(e.g. self employed people such as plumbers, painters, cleaners, electricians, builders, computer technicians, dress makers, caterers, doctors, dentists, etc) and social enterprises (e.g community-based child care centres, health care centres, sport clubs).

You undertake many life roles during your career and some of them at the same time. These roles could be as a family member, a learner, a woker, a spouse/partner, a religous or spiritual participants, a leisure participant, a citizen and a friend which involve different set of attitudes, vaues, and skills.
Your responsibilities and associations change over time within each of these roles. Because of our different roles in the community, we may choose a career that will still suport the role. For examlpe, when a female teacher become a mother and decides not to teach at scholl, she can still become a teacher but doing it from home. So her teaching career from home suits her roles as a mother, too. When someone knows that one day she has to to play a certain role in life(i.e taking care his/her sick family) than careers that can be done from home will be best options.
