Serial Entrepreneur

A person who starts several different businesses with little intention of operating any of them for very long. That is, a serial entrepreneur may start one business and work at it until it becomes profitable, then sell it and start another business. A serial entrepreneur is not interested in a career with the individual companies he/she runs, but rather enjoys the process of starting a business. Serial entrepreneurship is risky, as is entrepreneurship in general.
