You might call it tenacity, or you might call it sheer bloody-mindedness, but one defining characteristic — probably the defining characteristic — of an entrepreneur is the way they simply refuse to take “no” for an answer. No you can’t do that. Really, well just watch me.
If so, then by that definition Caroline Casey must be the ultimate entrepreneur.
No you can’t drive. So she raced five laps around a Malaysian race track at nearly 200kph (125mph). No you can’t go round the world. So not only did she go round the world, but did it in a contest where she had to use 80 different forms of transport (Around the world in 80 … ways). No you can’t be a management consultant. No you’ll never get a masters degree. No you can’t trek for 1000km on the back of an elephant. No. No. No.
Well she has done all of those things, which would ordinarily make her a reasonably interesting person.
What makes her extraordinary is that Caroline Casey is blind.
