Vice President (VP), General Manager in Las Vegas:
"The Entrepreneurial Spirit."
The spirit of an entrepreneur can be fun to watch but it comes with a price. When the company gets built out of necessity and gut feelings it's difficult to add structure. And most times that's ok. It only becomes an issue when the owner wants to hand over the reigns but really doesn't want to give up control. But wants others to make decisions but doesn't want others to make decisions. Very confusing.
