Are you a Freelancer or an Entrepreneur?

Are you a Freelancer or an Entrepreneur?

When people first started catching wind about my design business, they would often say: “So I heard that you freelance on the side…?” To which I’d quickly say: “Well yes, I have a business…” I don’t know why but for some reason, I’d get a slight awkward feeling inside because to me, the word freelance didn’t cut it. Is there a stigma with the word "freelancer"? Is it the same as an entrepreneur or a business owner? I conducted a little study to see just what our peers think.
