#1 is the one that took me a long time to be able to do. I had a tendancy of falling into a corporate rut and became dependant on my position. This led to me being a loyal "no questions asked" automiton at the complete controll of my bosses only to get laid off due to corporate down sizing. I was let go with all of my emmediate superiors hating the fact that I was going, but not to the point any of them faught for me to stay.

I was lucky enough to play both entrepreneurship roles. Entrepreneur - as a co-founder of EyeView; Intrapreneur – as the intra-founder of INTENTclick and it’s Managing Director (similar role to a CEO of INTENTclick if it was an external startup). They each have different challenges but I found both to be equally rewarding. Here is a quick comparison of the two - www.yanivnizan.com/2011/11/what-is-intrapreneurship.html
