In the spirit of the holiday season, we challenged NSIV members to some lighthearted fun by asking them to complete this phrase: “You know you’re an NSIV entrepreneur IF….” The lucky winner of this competition was revealed at our Holiday Party. William Glover, CSO of ZS Genetics, took the prize for his pithy turn of phrase: “You know you’re an NSIV entrepreneur if your spouse calls you self-unemployed.” * Source of Inspiration: How Do You Know if You Are an Entrepreneur? We expect William’s one liner to make it into the next edition of the book.
