'Wannapreneur' - are you one of do you know someone that is?

There's a new word doing the rounds and it's 'Wannapreneur'.

Basically, this is someone who bigs themselves up all the time about what an amazing, incredible business person they are without actually having the experience or a sustainable business behind them.

Some people think the rise in the Wannapreneur is being fuelled by programmes like 'The Apprentice' which encourages candidates to come out with outrageous, cliched terms and phrases which of course makes good telly, but doesn't necessarily make people take the person seriously.

What do you think?

(Skip to 21mins of the latest episode of the BBC's Show Me The Money for more discussion about the phrase 'Wannapreneur' http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01f9nxh/Show_Me_the_Money_Episode_68/)
